    Hey, I was just wondering what kind of gaming is this device capable of? I know it's not much, but since it has the option of an Intel iris pro, I was just thinking it has to be somewhat capable of something.

    I'm hoping the high end is capable of maybe not top of the line but more than most ultrabooks. It'd be the most pretty laptop at the dance if it had some capability.

    Yeah, I currently have an Hp Pavilion, with an i7-7700hq and GTX 1050 2gb, with 16gb ram, so I don't think it will beat my current laptop, but it would be a lot easier to carry around

    From what I knew about the Surface Pro 3 before, it was able to play Counter Strike!

    Awesome, so this should be able to play some newer games with decent frame rates

    I'm often on Steam. I'm not a huge gamer, and this laptop would go toward my needs at school. But I'd still like to know how it is for gaming. I'd like to be able to take a break from school work and play some games

    Kaby Lake i5 and i7 with the RAM configurations, sure some gaming. I play a few older games through Steam and GoG (StarCraft, Homeworld 2, Age of Empires, CivIII -- I like to use my PC for some of my old school gaming I used to do back in the day :) ). As far as newer games, if you get a higher end Laptop (i7, 8+ GB RAM) you can check out Surface Book gaming reviews that sport the same configuration and they should be comparable. I think Gears of War 4-type games on medium settings were decent to game with.

    I think you need to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for Gaming. Or maybe you have to wait until more games are coming to the Windows Store!
