Will Surface Book win accolades from reviewers and users or be dumped? It is not yet possible to pass a definite judgment, nonetheless there seems to be signs making it look like a truly successful Microsoft product than a failure.

There is no denying the fact that the Surface Book from Microsoft seems to be an exceptional machine. Enterprises are set to fall for it before long and if this really happens, the success of Microsoft’s Surface Book is ensured.

This is not all. Analysts claim that many individual users who have been smitten by the charm of this exceptionally looking laptop will also go week in their knees when it is actually available in the market. Along with the success of Surface Pro 4 tab, its success seems to be a foregone conclusion.

A review in the PC World while talking about the newest and apparently meanest machine says, “Microsoft calls the new Surface Book two-in-one the “ultimate laptop.” As a 2-in-1, it’s more than that. Undocked, the Surface Book is a massive 13.5-inch 3K tablet. Dock it to its base and it becomes a notebook capable of gaming, complete with its own discrete Nvidia GPU. And it’s twice as powerful as the MacBook Pro…All told, the Surface Book reminds me of the Chromebook Pixel: the premier example of what its ecosystem can achieve. Surface Book will command a premium price, as well: $1,499 for the base Core i5 model, $1,899 for the core i5 model with the discrete GPU, and $2699 for a full-boat Core i7 model with discrete GPU. Preorders are already underway, and Microsoft promises you’ll have it by Oct. 26”.

There is no denying the fact that the Surface Book seems to be very impressive indeed. Now the company is not just going to partner with market leaders like HP, Lenovo, Dell, besides other market leaders and let them make the machine while it makes its dollars from software side, it is going to compete with them too. There is no denying the fact that the Surface Book seems to be an exceptionally well-made product. Surface Book that comes with a screen measuring 12.3 inches diagonally, is Microsoft’s first laptop and its second device category designed for enterprise-tier use — the Surface line of tablets came first.

People are super excited about it. A market analyst, Pat Moorhead, while talking about Redmond based tech giant’s planning says, “With the mobile revolution, and with Apple and Google competing, Microsoft was in jeopardy…It had to fully integrate in order to create devices that it thought would further its cause.” Microsoft launched two high-end smartphones, Surface Pro 4 tablet, a second gen wearable device and the Surface Pro. The company seems to be concentrating on getting more cloud users. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has set a goal of achieving cloud revenues of $20 billion by June 2018, compared with a run rate of about $6 billion this year.
