    I think it is good only for a student or a daily casual user

    Not a fan of Windows 10 S. Maybe if it was a free O.S download to allow for people to try out windows 10. But I think it doesn't make sense to have people buy a laptop then pay to upgrade to Windows 10. When I can purchase any laptop right now that comes with full Windows 10. I just don't like how limiting it is.

    In love with the design but feels little overpriced for the specs !

    It depends on you budget and individual needs. I'd says it's a solid laptop option but their are other more budget friendly options that are solid choices. I would love to buy one, but I have a laptop that currently meets my needs so I can't justify spending the money on a new surface (even though I would love to justify buying one).

    Windows 10 S? Not ok with restrictions. But let us assume that it's upgraded to 10 Pro. That is fine.
    It's not available here but still I will say that its price should have been kept low. Keeping the fact aside that I'm a Windows/Surface fan, I would prefer to buy HP spectre x 360 instead of buying this.
    Like everybody else I genuinely feel that there must have been a Thunderbolt port.
    So I conclude that it is not a good option to buy but as @206Husky said, it's worth winning. :)

    Surface Laptop and Window 10S, nah. Upgrade it to Windows 10 and get the best hardware and software combination available.

    Hey all,
    I am just very curious to know if the Surface laptop is worth the money

    in my country the Mac Laptop Air is worth 16500 EGP while the Surface laptop would be worth around 20000 EGP and this is not a small difference

    what's so different about the Surface laptop to be worth it? please help

    Honestly I think I would rather get Surface Pro 4 as that would better fit my lifestyle, but this does look interesting.

    The difference is that the Surface laptop isn't directly competing with the MacBook Air. It's competing with a Mac Book. So it's better priced and more bang for your buck.

    I'm torn between this and an updated Pro 4. I love the laptop form factor, but the inkability of the Pro is very nice for sitting on the couch and doing some doodles.

    Basically the Macbook Air's only thing going for it is it unibody design.



    It has a low end CPU and a laughable screen for 2017.

    For pure specs you would get a better laptop for half the price of the Macbook Air.

    The Surface Brand is the main thing that adds value to this laptop.

    Other than that, I agree, the Surface Laptop is a pretty underwhelming offering for >$1,000. I much prefer to spend that much money on something in the Surface Pro or Surface Book line.

    Looks great but the options out there for the $1500 to $3500 range are huge.
    I think Microsoft really needed to make it more affordable or have a range of lower end 10S machines to beef up user numbers and get developers looking in the Microsoft app store ecosystem direction.

    If you need a good machine, not too pricy for medium usage, I believe that this laptop will be for you. I will use it for work, which is mostly excel spreadsheets, photo retouch and calibration.

    I won't be running something as heavy as lightroom, but it should handle photoshop without a sweat.

    It depends on the devices you already have. As the first and for a while only computing device when you cannot invest more than $1000 - I guess yes, the best choice.

    It looks like Microsoft thinks the description matches students. Good luck, but I guess Windows S without a UWP version of Visual Studio is very, very brave.

    Despite most people's qualms about the price, I think we are all assuming that we'll be buying the instant it comes out. Not necessarily. A budget conscious user might just wait two or three months for the prices to drop or offers to come.

    But as many of you said, its a way better offer than Apple products.

    It's worth it IMO, I'm a programming student and doing work on a notebook with 4 gigs of ram and okay CPU (I have 4th gen i5) work great for me. I don't do any gaming on my notebook so it's all good.

    I still think the Surface Pro 4 is the best of the lot for me. I had one but it had bad Ram so I returned it and got a surface book with performance base. It's a great machine but I miss the Pro because it was more of an intimate integration being closer and easier to get closer without the process of disconnecting the base etc.

    Honestly, I don't think it's worth buying because of the windows 10s update. As you can not install a lot of apps which totally kills the purpose of having a Windows laptop. For the same specs, I'd prefer surface pro 4 which comes with the windows 10 pro.

    Honestly, I kinda rather waiting for other vendors offering of device with Windows 10s than buying Surface Laptop. For me, the price point is a bit high for its intended user. Surface Laptop with its price point should come with full Windows 10 and target for young exec.
