The Microsoft Surface Book SX3-00001 is a bestselling business laptop that has been praised for its powerful hardware, its NVIDIA graphics and for its sleek design. Microsoft set out to create a powerful ultra portable laptop for the business world that could also run games thanks to its NVIDIA Maxwell graphics that was specifically designed for the Surface Book.
The brilliant PixelSense display offers a 100% sRGB coverage and when combined with the digitizer pen input make the Microsoft Surface Book SX3-00001 perfect for designers and artists alike. The unusual 3:2 aspect ratio is perfect for editing documents and creating presentations, making the Microsoft Surface Book SX3-00001 the perfect all round business and pleasure laptop. But there are some first generation design flaws like the awkward gap between the screen and base when the laptop is closed.
When the Microsoft Surface Book was first released, critics everywhere were impressed. This 2 in 1 device is truly a sight to behold. It’s sleek and stylish, and the detachable screen makes it perfect for use in all situations, from coding to watching movies. Under the hood you will find an Intel Core i5-6300U running at 2.4Ghz, which is more than enough power for even the most complex coding projects.
If you need to multitask, no problem, as the Surface Book comes with 8GB of RAM so you can run whatever you need to run with ease. One thing that this device doesn’t have is USB-C and HDMI, meaning that newer monitors or devices won’t be compatible with this device, at least not at their native speeds and without the use of an adapter. Still, if you need a device for programming that can be useful both at home and on the road, this is one of the best choices available to you.
