So, I decided to buy myself a Surface Book today. It's a surprisingly high quality device that easily competes with my MacBook Pro in terms of build and design.
I decided to buy it for a number of reasons:
So far, it's been a rather enjoyable experience. The new Unix Subsystem for Windows 10 is surprisingly enjoyable, and was able to produce a build of Python 2.7.13 without any problems.
So far, I'd say there's only a 25% chance that I'll return the device. Fingers crossed!
