It doesn't seem that this version of the Surface Book contains the Nvidia GPU. See the microsoft webstore, they have versions with and without the Nvidia GPU.

Agreed, under graphics and video it says 'integrated graphics"

Yeah, but do they even have a version of the Surface Book with a 256GB SSD without the discrete graphics?

Good find, shame it isn't the i7/16gb/512gb with dgpu model that I already have on preorder, I would love to get it at a lower price!

That's exactly what they're selling here. You don't get the discrete graphics until you hit the $1899 version.

I may be missing something here but isn't the OP for exactly what you want? A Surface Book with 256GB SSD "without" the discrete/dedicated GPU?

Oh, I was basing this off from what they have listed on Amazon. They do not have a 256 GB version without discrete graphics.

Actually, the $1149 combo does NOT include the wireless display adapter.

It's possible that it's just sold out. I could swear I saw it available a day or so ago in that configuration.

Personally, I'm thinking of just getting the $1499 version and getting a 256GB SD card. It might only be good while the keyboard is connected, but it still should be cheaper than paying the extra $200 just to bump from 128 to 256GB of storage.

There's nothing really that special about it. It's just a nicer looking designed convertible tablet/laptop hybrid. The detachable graphics card has been done before by other manufacturers. Has it been done before inside a keyboard attachment? No, but it was bound to happen, the technology has always been there. Don't buy into the hype, Microsoft is simply using better marketing terms to describe their so called innovations, which Apple has been doing for years.

I think the most innovative achievement in the last 7 years is the fanless x86 processor that is usable, and the fact that you can purchase a low-end model for under $100 and run 20+ years of legacy software on it. Far more revolutionary than a pricey tablet aimed mostly at "creatives" and hipsters.

I agree that maybe calling it the most "innovative" is a bit of a stretch, but I 100% concur with the sentiment that it's the BEST executed laptop to date.

There's nothing to gripe about it outside of the cost and mastabatory spec fantasies (ex. 980GTX and 2048 pressure levels).

As mundane as it sounds, the hinge itself is actually pretty amazing, in conjunction with the latch release system.

The Surface book is for a specific slice of the laptop market, but the beautiful thing is you don't HAVE to be someone (i.e. an artist) that takes advantage of the amazing drawing capacity to appreciate the fact that it's still a freaking TABLET sized core i7 discrete GPU beast with an amazing screen, keyboard, and build quality.

I actually prefer OSX overall for day to day stuff (design & development). This hardware + OSX would be so amazing. Nothing against Windows though, I use Windows after 6pm Wink.
