Microsoft Surface Book i7 with Performance Base 2016 Review

Microsoft Surface Book i7 with Performance Base 2016 Review: Lisa Gade reviews the latest Microsoft Surface Book model, the 2016 Performance Base with a much more powerful NVIDIA GTX 965M 2GB GDDR5 graphics processor and a higher capacity battery.

Best Buy Co, Inc.

This is the new top of the line option for the Surface Book, and the price starts at $2,399 for the Core i7-6600U tablet with 8 gigs of RAM, a 256 gig PCIe NVMe SSD and NVIDIA GTX 965M graphics. The models introduced in 2015 are still available, this new offering simply sits above them in price, GPU performance and battery life.

The clipboard (tablet) section remains the same, but unfortunately, Microsoft won’t sell you a performance base separately if you wish to upgrade your existing Book. The 3.6 lb. laptop with detachable tablet has a dual core 15 watt Intel Skylake 6th generation CPU (same as earlier Surface Books), included N-Trig pen, Marvell Avastar dual band WiFi 802.11ac with Bluetooth, a 5MP Windows Hello front camera, 8MP rear camera, two USB 3.0 ports, an SD card slot, mini DisplayPort and an MS dock connector (again all the same as the original Book). Graphics performance doubles with the GTX 965M vs. the old 940M equivalent dGPU making video editing and light gaming more viable, and the laptop now has a total of 81 Whr battery capacity for long battery life.
