I've used one a few times at my local best buy, it's honestly one of the best feeling laptops I've ever used. It's got a beautiful display, a great keyboard and trackpad, but they had to make it a fucking detachable which made it ridiculously over priced.

Still so nice though. If I'm not poor in the future I might pick one up, although it will be pretty hard to justify it though.

not that anon, but even for light media consumption that's not enough vram to run 3000x2000. Aero/Metro alone will take up all of that. where is your h.265 decoding gonna happen, I mean you wanna watch your video in full HD right? the screen supports it.

I don't understand these portable tablet for artists.

I'm do a lot of digital illustration and I fell for the artist tablet laptop meme when it was called the surface pro 2. I sold it after like a month when it became apparent I don't need to draw anything at a fucking starbucks. I'll stick with my cintiq.

Who has one of these and when do you find use for it?

Nobody. It's a gadget; A piece of technology that you buy because it's new and cool, not because it's useful.

Poorfag detected.
People who buy Surface products use them as production devices to make money and claim them on tax expenses. Macfags however buy shit to pretend that they're not poor.
>>
>>52549928
That's because Wacom penabled is fucking garbage. Ntrig is so much better for portable art work, I had the Surface Pro 1 and the cursor is always way off and edge accuracy is non-existant, with Ntrig, the cursor is always perfectly under the pen tip.
Also, I don't have a Cintiq so I rely on my Surface 3. I use it at work, in the train and at home.

>>
>>52552836
3.25% is that some food marketing bollocks?
or are we talking butterfat content
if that's unskimmed milk that's a pretty low fat content I guess the herds must be more of the extreme high yield holsteins probably feeding off a high cereal or maize based forage, alternatively they're skimming off the rest of the fat and selling it, hmm is it uht?
>>
>>52553093
porridge and muesli are ridiculously cheap alternatives that actually contain far higher Vitamins and minerals than the fortified kellog$ junk ever will steer well clear of foods that are mostly sugar coated maize meal on principal milk sourced from herds feeding nutrient rather than energy dense forages are slightly more expensive but significantly higher in healthy fats and fat soluble vitamins such as E and A

not if you leave. And all the other people who didn't go are helping you foot that bill. Good deal for those who go, shit for everyone else.
>>
>>52553093
3.25% fat... People usually drink 2%
>>
POO IN LOO, Pajeet
>>
yeah but that's the point the whole 2% crap is bullshit
the more you fuck around with milk the the less healthy it is oxidised fat molecules degraded protein structure
the amount of fat in your diet isn't actually that important the types of fat are much more significant
The whole reduced fat argument is just marketing
2-3.25% huh so say 200ml so that's about 2.5g difference so at around @30Kj/g = 75KJ less relatively speaking the energy content is still pretty negligible but as I mentioned if you could actually buy nutritionally dense milk in the first place rather than the white water low end commodity crap common to north america then the healthy fats and vitamin content would actually matter, if you care about anything care about good nutritionally dense foods produced to high standards
what I was trying to highlight was the fact that so much effort is invested into work but the quality of a diet is often ignored completely under the mantra of cheap food

I've used both SB and SP4 keyboard for a while, and the SP4 keyboard actually wins for me if you're on a flat surface (get it?) The SB I used had uneven keyboard backlighting and travel felt way too shallow. SP4's keyboard when in the alt magnetic hover mode feels more tactile.

>>52553003
Yeah for gaming, but cuda accelerated programs benefit from it.
>>
Put GNU/Linux on it
>>
>>52553003
If I'm not mistaken I think these can actually come with the 970m.

So they fucked up. Maybe marketing thought people were stupid to care beyond the generic "Hurr I got an NVIDIA gaming card"
>>
>>52555459
?? They marketed it for rendering and graphic design.
>>
>>52547082
I was disappointing with the price too
Should be $400-800 cheaper depending on the features of the surfacebook

it just makes no sense on the low end,
$1500 for 128gb + i5 + 8gb ram

I could buy a laptop with better specs than that still have money left over for a tablet AND be less than the lowest tier
>>
>>52555459
>970m

no it's not. it's a low tdp custom part with no set name but that's very comparable to a 940m with 2GB of GDDR5.
