Yeah! Not just the unboxing but suddenly all the reviews for Surface Pro 4 is out across various technology websites. Wondering if Microsoft set a date for the release of such review.
Yes, most of the reviewers said they had the set for past 2 or so weeks, but there was a curfew imposed.

was thinking of getting the surface pro 4 + type cover, which will be around 2.2k SGD.

the same spec surface book is about 1.7k USD or 2.3k SGD when using the current conversion rates..

Seems like the surface book might be a better choice for users looking for a dedicated keyboard

The pro 4 + type cover that u quoted 2.2k SGD, should be i7, 256g SSD and 8g RAM.

If you will to get a similiar specification for Surface Book, it cost USD$2099, almost close to SGD$3k

There is a close to $700 price difference.

Ppl usually think of Book > Pro 4 but I look for portability so I see it the other way. And Pro 4 has longer battery for tablet use.

If you want insane battery life, surface book sure better with the extra battery meaning extra weight also. Anyway I think the sp4 battery life is alr beyond my regular on-the-move usage. I bring sp3 to school with battery saver - Edge browsing once in awhile and office and PDF editing from 9 to 2.30 non stop still got 60% left.

Orh. But i thot the battery of surface book if detached from keyboard is like 4 hrs only or something, because most of battery is in the keyboard section.

Ya if surface book tablet only mode is like surface pro 4 I think. But you won't go out without a keyboard ba. Haha. Battery saver mode in windows 10 got alot improvement in app management. I never bring adapter out before for this whole year.

Same i5, 256g SSD, 8gb RAM is USD$1699, which is approx SGD$2400.

Still a $400 difference. But it make no sense to get the USD$1699 Surface book, because the key about Book is the dGPU, that the USD$1699 model does not have.

I still cant decide between the m3 or get the base i5. For someone who does alot of word processing, watching videos and surfing, would m3 suffice?

I would say get i5. Future proof it. M3 also can but IN CASE you wanna do something more cpu intensive stuff, then you might regret.

i5 256gb 8gb
SP4 $1,299 + $130 type cover = US$1,429
(SG price is $1,999 + $199 = S$2,198).

SB US$1,699.

So the difference is US$270 for bigger screen, better overall battery life, more sturdy keyboard, more USB port and sheer novelty factor. Arguable, I think.

The price difference narrows if the SP4 is bought in SG at S$2,198 while the SB is imported, as you will have to pay GST on the SB.

I also always think of "future proof" but honestly by the time 1, 2 years later, very likely I would want something "up to date" again...

If say you travel and take videos of your trip, your 64gb card will fill up fast. SP4 is very portable so I view it as portable storage with power to view, edit videos even.
