    I’m looking for a small windows 2 in 1 that can do some gaming as well. I’d love a 12 inch device but as far as I know it doesn’t exist. The closest thing to what I want is the surface book 2 13.5 inch with the GeForce 1050. I don’t have to have detail turned up all of the way. As long as I can play the games I will be happy. Ive heard issues with throttling and fast battery drain though. So can anyone share their experience gaming with the surface book 2 13.5 with the GeForce 1050? Or point me in the direction of another pc that is similar?

    firstly you CANNOT game with battery no matter how low you set the rez, you will need to be plugged in no matter what device it is... and if you do it will be around 1 1/2 hours at most...

    2nd) buying the Surface book 2 for gaming and other leisurely stuff is going to be very expensive and I would recommend into looking for something cheaper like a laptop.. I just recently bought an ASUS with 12GB ram gtx 1050 4GB and 1080p screen for $800cdn! theres a plethora of other devices to fill your portable gaming needs...

    I meant battery drain while plugged in. I’m fine being plugged in. I do a LOT of traveling and want a smaller device to kind of be my tablet and pc both. 15.6” is too big for my wants. Honestly 13” devices are too BUT I can suffice. I love the HP Spectre x360 13.3” but you cant get it with a gpu. THats why I’m leaning towards the surface book 2. I agree though, it is expensive :/
