@Daniel Rubino do you think the base model with no dGPU will have a similar battery life to the original Laptop Studio?

Anyway, thanks for the in-depth review as always. :)
Thanks! Great question. I can't say precisely how much better battery life would be, but it would be pretty significant (maybe an extra hour or two?).

Personally, I'd be fiiiiiine with that model for what I need this laptop for and is the one I'd get. RTX GPUs are great, but if you're doing a lot of gaming or video work, it doesn't do much except use more power.

Yes, basically I don't need a GPU (and even SLS too) just for web and light office work, so better battery life would be a plus. I like the cool form factor just like the OG Surface Book I have and I'm willing to pay extra for it. It's a shame that other OEMs aren't making SLS design in a cheaper configuration.
