    The more I read about Surface Laptop, the more I'm excited about it! And hopefully Surface Phone will join the family soon too!

    I can give some feedback on this: I've had the lower end surfaces since launch, and have hesitated upgrading to the Pro line because when I'm working I really need that solid keyboard experience.

    The book is too expensive and over specced for what I'd use it for; and the Surface Pro 4 would be great, but worse battery life and that damn flimsy keyboard (yes, much better in latest iteration, but still not for me).

    So the surface laptop is for those of us that like a traditional laptop, and want to experience the best of Windows 10 in a "traditional" format.

    MS/Panos seem like they're winging it on their mobile hardware releases, like this stuff isn't planned in advance. If it was, I'd think the Surface Pro tablet would be the core/base unit they'd produce, and then the 'Surface Book' would just be the hardcore laptop-style base, with the extra battery and GPU in it, to attach the Surface Pro tablet to, and the 'Surface Laptop' would just be a basic laptop-style base for it, lighter and thinner with no battery or GPU, while still allowing the detaching of the Surface Pro for tablet usage. The Type Cover keyboard would still be available for ultra-portability.

    It seems weird to have them as three separate products, competing with themselves, when they could all be modules allowing for customization on a whim.

    I still love my original Surface RT, but not being able to upgrade to Win 10 makes me a little sad. Now a lovely modern Surface 3 with all that x86 desktop and Windows 10 goodness; what's not to love!

    Most people anymore only need to check email, write a letter, manage their budget, access music and photos, search for information, and do it all safely from malware. Windows 10S will help with that by locking down Windows for the regular user in somewhat of a sandbox mode.

    I know that at home I no longer need a computer where I want to tweak every setting. I just want to connect and do what I need to do.

    The only real concern with the Surface Laptop is the cost. It still is a premium price to be able to do those things. I'm hoping that various partners start coming out with devices that mimic the SL, but at a lower cost.

    Is the keyboard any better than that of the pro 3? I'm sure it is but I haven't seen any reviews of it.

    I was able to stop and play with one of these for a couple of minutes at my local Microsoft Store the other day. I wasn't sure what to think when it was announced, but I was very impressed having it in hand. It looked and felt very nice!

    I'm actually a former Surface RT user, and would welcome the benefits that Windows S provides such as better security and extended battery life. Less fan on time is a good thing.

    I never had a note or laptop, so that could change if all of you delete your participation and then I could win. I hope you have a sweet soul that will help me on it.
    Okay, seriously, I don't know where I could put a bad review about this Surface Laptop, so just wishing to be the winner.

    Who thinks it can replace my desktop?
    That depends on what you normally use your desktop for. If you mostly browse the web and stream videos it should make a great replacement, but if you game heavily or video and photo edit a desktop would likely be more reliable.

    What was the alcantara fabric like? I haven't been able to touch one yet and I'm interested to see if it would make heavy laptop is more comfortable. I imagine it would. I'm sure that's at least part of why Microsoft chose to use it of the Surface Laptop.

    That's the idea. Their target audience with Windows 10 S is the education sector which necessarily demands low cost devices.

    I'd really love to try out a Surface product since I've had no chance to buy one, and since I'm in Europe I can't even try a Surface Book or a Surface Studio, so a Laptop would be a great start to join the Suface family!
