Rarely find it necessary to comment but here's some knowledge for you interested in the SP4 or Book.

I keep tabs on any deals going on for the Surface Pro 3, 4, or Book. The reasons I'll state at the end. This looks to be a very interesting deal that could gain traction so here goes...

Truly a laptop replacement
Can be buggy every once in awhile but nothing crazy
Covered by 1yr warranty but not accidents/drops/spills. Optional ESP plan by Microsoft is about $150 or $200 that covers anything, including accidents for $49 deductible. Extends basic warranty by 1yr also.
Screen is fragile
These run hot
USB 3.0 x1, DisplayPort, MicroSD slot
Camera logs you in via facial recognition
Type Cover not included!
Charger also has a USB port on the brick itself for charging your phone, etc
i7 CPU gets a better video chipset
Stylus is included
Battery life estimate is VERY optimistic at 9 hours
All accessories cost and arm and a leg (such as docking station). Don't buy a dock without the power brick. They're expensive. Optional type cover with biometric finger print reader is overkill considering Windows Hello (cam facial recognition). This type cover is $150

Who is the SP4 ideal for?
IMHO the Surface is ideal for someone on the go a lot. Business travelers especially because you don't have to put it away during take-off and landing as it's not considered a laptop. If you're not TSA precheck, you don't have to remove it from your bag (not a laptop). Battery life does still impress despite being over estimated by Microsoft.

Will this replace my aging desktop/laptop?
Yes, but at a significant $$$ premium. Don't expect any new-age gaming.

What else should I buy for it?
Estimated used market prices:
Docking Station ($100) or Surface Pro 3 fill size dock with SP4 adapter ($125)
DisplayPort to HDMI adapter if using PPT ($10)
Type Cover ($80)
Case ($10-$60)
Screen protector ($20-$50)
Fast 128gb-200gb Micro SD card ($40)

If you elect the accidental damage protection, you can also ditch the case and just apply a skin/decal. I recommend StickerBoy (google it). Don't pay retail. Has 30-50% off sales. Subscribe to newsletter.

What about the Surface Book?
Super cool detach mechanism. It's still fairly heavy for a laptop. The tablet portion that detaches is signficiantly lighter than a SP4 but lacks meaningful practical use. Tablet and base contain their own batteries and GPUs. The SB comes in a dedicated nVidia GPU config (in the base of the laptop, under keyboard). Still don't expect any decent gaming.

Who is the Surface Book good for?
If you want power over portability.

What qualifications do you have, idiot?
Typing this on a SP4, i7, 16GB, 512GB SSD right now.
Use it to push 2 displays including a 32" 2560x1440 for heavy business use
Frequent Traveler
Was given a new i7 Latitude laptop by my employer. It collects dust, I paid for the SP4 out of my own pocket.
I have bought/sold/used over 20 SP3s, 7 SP4s, and a handful of Surface Books and accessories.
I'm looking at the Surfacebook with i7, 16gb ram, 512gb SSD dGPU + 1TB Xbox One for $2098. I already have a $50 gift card from an earlier Xbox deal, so $2050...

Surface Book alone is like $2,400 on Amazon, so damn good deal.
missing the Xbox game, Xbox controller, plus the $50 Microsoft gift card

You can select your model. The cheapest one with 8 is 200 bucks more than the 4gb i5.

best buy is selling sp4 i5 128gb for $700 with edu code.
If you sell xbox for $300 on ebay, the price of ps4 will be around same price as best buy deal.
Am I missing something?
