Bottom Line

All the power of a high end laptop molded seamlessly into a stylish ultra-portable 2-in-1 chassis.

The Microsoft Surface Book is a 2015 bestselling 13.5-inch 2-in-1 convertible laptop that received critical acclaim for its modern convertible design, impressive specs, 3000×2000 HD Display, 10 point multi-touch screen and responsive surface pen stylus. Reviewers were critical of the high price as well as the lack of ports on the laptop body. The Surface is the culmination of the power of laptop hardware formed into a small portable form factor.
