    My husband just bought a surface laptop 2 i7. I used it yesterday to do some stuff because I forgot my laptop at the office. Oh my goodness, it is the best laptop I have ever used in my life. I'm so tempted to go get one now.

    As a technophile, I have to constantly remind myself to not give into my temptations.

    Should I go get one or not?

    Do you need the performance bump of the 8gen intel proc? Cause there are some decent sales on the Surface Laptop 1.

    No matter what, it will only be a couple hundred dollars difference. I will never forgive myself for not getting the latest just to have a couple hundred discount.

    , in my country the sale was about 25% and it had an Iris Plus 640, which is quite a bit faster than the igpu of the new Laptop 2 (handy for 3d programs etc). Plus you will only really benefit from the 8gen cpu if you either multitask a lot or use programs that make usage of multithreading, since the i7-7660U's single core speed is not too shabby at all. :)

    Good point. But the screen on the 2 is so much better than the 1.

    Also, I like to program.

    As others have said, go for it! But let us know if you got it or not and what you think of it.

    Enjoyyyyyy it (don't install all updates immediately; wait a week or so. Seems like W10 has hit a few snags lately)

    Does anyone know if the dimensions of the SL2 is the same as SL1? I'm an engineer and I hate using the laptop that my company gives me when I'm traveling. So I wanna put a case on it.
