I want this badly but reading about the issues faced by the surface series and not having any local warranty for such a premium price is keeping me at bay

I am quite curious. For surface book 2, I don't think its primary usage should be use for gaming but rather some work processing instead. For me, I would rather get a dedicated gaming laptop if I were to use it for gaming.

Oh 4K...? That's kind of redundant for a laptop. Don't quite understand the logic behind. At least there is not much media or support for 4K, so why..? My thought is, its like putting a Ferrari engine into a Honda car running on Singapore roads. No way to perform.

Just my thoughts...

Only got my Book 2 yesterday, I got the 13 inch one as I do not need a big bulky screen and also do not need the GTX 1060 graphic card as I dun play game that often.

I got the i7, 16gb RAM, 512gb SSD. Overall the feel and impression is the same as those review I read online. The feel is good and performance is good too. My main purpose is for work, and I use the tablet mode often for meeting and taking notes.

I was using the Pro 4 earlier, but sold off after seeing the release of Book 2.
