  1. They imitated the Apple Magic Keyboard Case but this is sweet and the laptop to get beautiful enough to rival Apple

  2. Here is me hoping that you get to 1 million subs ASAP because you simply deserve it-the contents quality is simply on another level-thank you so much-keep up the good work…..🙂

  3. $1800 starting price for an oversized phone with keyboard attached. I'll pass. Until Windows can emulate x64 programs as well as Mac M1 can. These don't make sense.

  4. Too bad you can't completely remove the screen and use it as a tablet.

  5. I'd buy it if it wasn't for the childish, zeitgeisty "vegan" stuff. Let them cater to fringe groups.

  6. They tried to dump WOA with consumer machines but no one bought into the compromises. So now they have whacked up the price put some fake leather on and rebranded as an executive machine? It will sink like the SP X.

    Sadly, until WOA is a usable OS and until Qualcomm gets a decent chip to rival the M1, these are nothing more than third rate devices. Having used the SP X for a year I can say it remains an excruciatingly slow work in progress made all the more infuriating that Apple came out of the gates like a dog on heat, with their ARM devices. For a software company, MS are a bit one a one-hit wonder! Avoid is my advice.

  7. '…Leather bound.'
    Me: boomer laptop
    Me: boomer lap….. wait… XD

  8. This thing is snake oil. Expensive and underpowered for what it is. Get a Surface book 3 i7 with a dGPU. You'll save $100+
    You could even get an M! MacBook Pro for less. Both options are a better buy than this.

  9. I'm sorry to have to correct you, I love all your content so don't take this the wrong way. It is not "Vegan Leather," it is "Fake Leather," it has been around forever and is a piece of shite. Sure, it has gotten better throughout the ages, but it is not Leather, so stop calling it that,

  10. Another great review Lisa. But talk about damning with mediocre praise.😁 I bought a M1 MacBook Air at the end of March and I haven't missed Windows 10 at all.

  11. i used to be "an incredibly huge excel spread-sheet number crunching jockey."

  12. Can you do long term reviews on windows on arm devices?
    I wonder how those snapdragon 835/850 devices hold up after 2 to 3 years

  13. I feel like The Future of Computing is using ARM CPU

    But yeah, I realized if this Transition is pretty hard especially about Software Compatibility

  14. OMG! they made leather out of the skins of poor innocent vegans! Hmmm Well, I guess that's as good a way to make sustainable leather as any. I wonder how they taste?

  15. 16 hours of battery life, a good keyboard, a nice 3:2 screen, a decent pen experience … this isn't bad at all. If you don't need anything not currently offered for Windows on ARM, this is pretty compelling for precisely the exec-on-the-go Lisa mentions is the target audience. Lots of OneNote and Office and browsing, all day long and at the airport too.

  16. Pretty durable compared to leather? I haven't seen anything that is as durable as real proper leather.
    I have gone through multiple fabric and vegan leather belts while my real leather belts hold up fine and seem not to care what I do with them.
    That said, I am happy we are not wasting valuable animal skin on executive tech products that are discarded after 2 years.

  17. I don’t understand the purpose of this laptop. Basically double the thickness of an iPad Pro, but less powerful, and you can’t detach the screen. What is the point of the bottom portion aside from the keyboard? I know iPad OS isn’t a perfect replacement for Windows or MacOS, but I can’t think of anything an “executive” would need to do in this that couldn’t be done on an iPad or Surface.

  18. thanks always for your reviews, but really hard for me to see who this is for.
