So because Apple allows their computers to run Windows simply because if they didn't, half their userbase would vanish, but keep non-Apple certified PC's (read: anything that runs Windows) from running OSX because then no one would ever buy a Mac, and Apple would not have their profit margin.
Meanwhile, at work we have over 20 SP4's and I'm the first one sporting the Book. Every desk on the floor has Surface docks, and if we have to move we can literally just get up and walk.

Microsoft has no idea how to create appealing software. The whole OS is an inconsistent mess of different design and usage paradigms, bloated and over-engineered UIs everywhere (pic related) and a dumped down window manager. There is no way to handle a big amount of applications, anything will get into your way sooner or later, especially if you are just working on the laptop and don't have multiple displays.
Doing any form of Linux or Unix administration is a pain in the ass to do on Windows. There isn't a single usable Terminal emulator, things like Putty or WinSCP are a mess compared to native SSH support in any other OS. Windows is also a horrible OS for any form of programming that doesn't target exclusively Windows.
Basically anything I do works better and more comfortable on OSX.
I couldn't care less about the tablet gimmick, I'd rather get a separate tablet that is light and slim, with actual battery life instead of settling on something that is worse as a tablet and worse as a laptop.
This shows that you have yet to even try a Surface Book.
First things first.
Windows 10, in the last two months, has really tightened up overall. Ask any person on Fast Ring who actually remembers to check to re-enable it after massive, almost weekly, build updates, how much it has improved. The Book went from a jittery mess of nerves to now clearly telling you what you need to close before allowing itself to undock, and it switches with the smallest blink.
The OS menu's are all being polished, and right now they are bretty mint.
If you are in dire need of Unix, then yes you are obviously not the target demographic. We are debunking this idea that Apple makes the shit for creatives and whatever nonsense they claim.
Microsoft literally filled an entire new niche that we needed for years but never had a product achieve with such grace. Maybe the Sony Z Book would have been better but I can't find that shit anywhere.
I quite literally get up from my desk and detatch the Surface Dock connector, in the middle of assembling a timeline in Premiere Pro, go upstairs and sit inside of a Porsche GT3 or a 2016 Bentley Flying Spur, and I'm chilling. Yeah the battery dies fairly fast, but the cars are usually plugged in with the showcase transformers on the back so I can run power from them.
Editing timeline footage and photos on a stupidly nice screen is also a massive plus, so the switching mode part is totally not gimmicky. It's the entire reason I wanted this thing. I used it for one day and I knew it was the solution to a problem a creative would have when they have to shoot and edit on the go.
If a client then needs to see photos of, for instance, a Rolls Royce Phantom Extended, I can escort them to the showroom. I undock, spin the top around, redock and close as a clipboard, grab the pen from the surprisingly strong magnetic side grip, and I'm off. I can still monitor and edit my photos on the go, walk them to the showroom, connect to the wireless display and then dual screen the photos of the car with the newer, more expensive model there next to the display in real life.
Finish up, follow the boss around and take notes in One Note, WiFi on all floors so I'm checking our inventory online, pulling cars that need photos, etc. Time to edit, go downstairs, literally the dock connector glides in magnetically, and it even fucking remembers where I move the monitor placement in Display Settings, per dock! So I never, EVER, configure my monitors again.
Fucking hipsters and your unfounded beliefs. Windows 10 is kicking everyone's ass. Fucking Hello is so fucking based.
You realize you are literally shilling right now, right? No memes, no exaggerations, no homo, you are doing exactly the definition of shilling.
Only a retard or a paid consultant would willingly beta test Microsoft hardware running beta Microsoft software. What does that make you? Even if it wasn't your idea to purchase that overpriced non-collapsing easily destructible shit, what does that make your boss?
>cheapest 256GB model costs 400 € more than a 256GB MBP
I have been running insider preview since day one, these posts are nothing but lies.
Windows 10 constantly breaks in the most retarded fashions imaginable, and good features keep getting thrown out the window by Microsoft.
El oh el.
I had no idea that the dealer I work at, would actually have those docks. I walked in there on my job interview with a Surface Pro 3. Hired in 6 minutes.
You didn't ask if I have another PC. Or if I have failsafes. Like for instance, symlinking my Surface and since I have WiFi at work, at worst, I lose the edits I did that day. Not the RAW files, which I first back up to my home PC, safely on my RAID 1 drive.
I bought this myself because within a day of using it, I crushed the other guy they hired as their in house photographer. I wanted the job, and I had the tools to run rings around him, on every single front.
Be mad faggot but everyone at work is buying Surface's for themselves because they actually want to bring them home, and ever since I brought the Book in, the salesmen are all having a case of serious buyer's envy.
Our dealership is that impressive. No expense was spared since they are carrying truly high end cars. We needed tools, not toys, and OSX couldn't do half of what we needed, and UNIX is a nightmare compared to Azure and Microsoft.
Better learn Powershell faggots.

What software are you attempting to run? Is it frequently updated?
What hardware are you using? Do you do maintenance? Is your idea of maintenance registry cleaning?
Do you even sfc /scannow considering if you're on insider preview/fast ring, its pretty FUCKING OBVIOUS that it will break? Which means you should be TECHNICALLY MINDED, or someone who can at least Google a fucking DISM command?
You can't just say someone is a liar without establishing what you fucking know.
i'd trade my late 2013 rmbp for a surface book but absolutely noone has taken me up on my offer. I've even offered to trade it for a lower spec'd book (my macbook pro is the top of the line 16gb ram i7 4960hq
I use a tripcode because my philosophy is this:
You have two options in life. Follow, or lead. I believe I am smart enough that whatever I talk about, is worth talking about, and at least my tripcode will be a running "history" of my ideas, on the archives. My dankest, my darkest, my bad and good ideas, impartially preserved. Only reason I use it.
They give us the option, and in a way, you can say that my tripcode is relevant in use since I use it to establish that I'm the person who has a conflicting idea with another anon. Saves boards from being fucking flooded with samefagging. Theoretically, if everyone used a tripcode on a blueboard, it is still anonymous since you can just make your trip whatever.
/4/chan- where logic comes to die.
Wait, what? I got absolutely ZERO Microbucks. If I was a Mac fag bragging that my workplace had Mac's everywhere and Mac docks and they space docked your fucking face, you wouldn't call me an Apple shill. You'd fucking draw Beats on my head and worship me as a fucking fan with a screw loose.
But the moment you enjoy anything Microsoft, you fucking faggots start crying "endorsements" because you can't admit that even Windows is more fucking useable, friendly, and through the virtue of being the most popular, the most powerful, OS. You allow Mac a pass since it's UNIX based but you faggots can cry over package managers all you want. Microsoft had you beat, has you beat, and will ALWAYS be first.
I run literally nothing but steam, and update regularly. In that time:
>valid license key stopped working, MS gave up trying to fix it and sent me a new one
>windows update stopped working, had to reinstall
>fucking start menu stopped showing up, had to reinstall
Stable my ass.
Image what could have you done with the time you've spent here if you had invested it on doing something of worth
You could have a blog or youtube channel that by now would be making some money through advertisements and you would have real people following you and recommending your website/blog/channel to others
But it's okay, you can keep posting on a website where everything you write or posts disappears when the thread 404s, effectively having nothing to show when asked what did you create from all those hours trying to argue seriously to strangers on a anonymous satire entertainment website
LOL nice try faggot
>Implying I've ever been insecure about people knowing who I was
But yes that's me and my woman :)
well the surface book doesn't have final cut pro so you can't make videos
not to mention osX is much better for everyday tasks, faster browsing, better ui, better file management, etc
not to mention osx has no viruses so you don't have to worry about getting them from accidentally browsing scam websites
and for the $2000 it costs you can get a macbook pro with twice the storage
I guess the pen is nice, but still if I wanted a pen I would get the iPad pro, Much cheaper than the surface pro with a better pen and all the iOS apps
So it's you?
Holy fuck I thought it was a joke.
How does it feel to know you will never be white?
>Time I've spent here
Google the last thread I made prior to this day, and then before that. Yeah, I come here literally when I am done working.
>Blog or YouTube Channel making money
Yes because there is a deadline for that, and maybe I'm just a few months early to my millionaire party.
But hey, I come here because every once in a while, a bunch of smart goyim get going and we have an actual educated tech discussion.
Get a fucking hobby faggot

>Better file management
First off, OSX is autistic with folders. It insists on placing them wherever the fuck, instead of gracefully always having sorting. The moment you learn Windows Hotkeys, OSX gets trashed on APM.
OSX having no viruses is a misnomer. If you fucking run a standard account, not an Admin account, you are basically just as protected.
The iPad Pro is basically an overclocked iPhone performance wise that will never be as expandable or configurable.
I used to hate it, but nowadays I notice that all the white girls like me, so I guess how does it feel knowing you watched a white girl you like end up on black dick?
Well I guess if I ever end up rich and working for Microsoft, you can call me whatever you want. Can't hear you from the back of the Rolls Royce :)
Don't be, it's something I ask myself every day, and in a way, maybe it's that same vibe guiding me along, seeing my success, that made you post here.
>Mac runs Windows AND OS X
Well the fact that this won't easily run OS X is Apple's fault.
Then use Linux on it.
>The OS menu's are all being polished, and right now they are bretty mint.
Oh please. I'm on Windows 10 right now with 3 windows open, all 3 have different designs.
Also you don't seem to understand when to use the word 'literally'."I quite LITERALLY get up from my desk" as opposed to what? You pretend to get up, but then sit back down?
Tl;dr the Surface Book is great and I'd buy it if I could afford it, but OP is a massive faggot who types like a 14 year-old girl on Tumblr.
>actually believes this
Anon, this is why cucking is a thing now. But yes, you go ahead and believe that.
Finally someone understands my baiting persona.
Ironically, he also too likes the Book.
I can end this thread in peace. I have achieved maximum ego boost and lulz.
Stay safe in the snow /g/
>Steam, chrome and spotify
But seriously, open the file explorer, the windows update configuration and right click on the start menu. No consistency, it's lile they hired several design teams and didn't let them talk to each other.
>Complaining about design problems
>Ignoring actual useful features that make everyday computing better
This is why /g/ will always be a fucking cesspool. You faggots let menus irk you and you'll ignore the massive benefits.
the surface 4 sits in a awkward position
For sketching it seems great with it's large resolution 13" screen and only 800grams of weight, but it's crippled by it's low voltage dual core CPU, so if you want to use it for things beyond simple painting, like editing videos, working on photoshop with large multiple layer files
for other types of work, a keyboard is needed and that was the main weakness of the surface 1/2/3, a mediocre keyboard which you couldn't use on your lap, the surface book fixed this and even added a GPU so you can transform your tablet into a real laptop
but that doubles the weight and makes it just like a normal laptop
this might seem great, being able to switch back and forth between a fully functional laptop and a windows tablet
but at $1800 for that configuration it's not so appealing, considering you can get a surface 2 for around $500-600 and spend the other $1200 on a great laptop with more ports, SSD space, and better cpu / gpu
They will do some refresh probably in three years which may fix things, moreover they should restructure the company for more unity.
Sadly we're stuck on wangblows horrible ui for now.
what's ultimately the difference when both are overpriced facebook toys for hipster cucks who base their sense of self-worth on dumping thousands of dollars on weak-ass shiny garbage
