My wife and I have been waiting weeks to get our hands on the new Microsoft Surface Book. We were quite excited when the FedEx truck pulled up this morning.
Here is what it looks like through the unboxing experience.
The Surface Book box is securely tucked in between layers of cardboard.
After removing one of the cardboard layers, the Surface Book box comes out.
The back of the box has all of the specifications of the device. Mine is the i5 / 8 GB / 256 GB model with dedicated video card.
The box is sealed by a single piece of tape.
Opening the box reveals the Surface Book.
Hidden beneath the Surface Book, we find a small set of instructions and the new Surface Pen.
Here is the instruction book.
The power supply looks similar to the Surface Pro 3 power supply but it is noticeable heavier. It also features a built-in USB port for charging.
Opening the Surface Book, there is a protective piece of paper over the keyboard.
Removing the piece of paper, we see the keyboard.
Here is a close-up of the keyboard.
The top of the Surface Book (the backside of the display) features the Microsoft logo and a camera in the top right.
The bottom of the Surface Book.
On the left side of the Surface Book you can see two USB 3 ports and a full size SD card slot. If you have been using an SDXC card in your Surface Pro 3, you’ll need to find an adapter.
On the right side of the Surface Book we see the newly labeled Surface Connect power connector as well as a mini display port.
Finally, here is a close-up of the new Surface Pen with its new eraser.
Is Surface Book really the ultimate laptop? Here is my review.
