  • Expert Rating

Pros

  • Ultrabook-like performance
  • Improved battery life from original Surface Pro
  • High-res, good quality 1920x1080 display
  • Very solid magnesium-alloy build
  • Dual-angle kickstand

Cons

  • Still too heavy and thick for comfortable ‘tablet’ use
  • Older Windows desktop applications don’t scale well to the high-density display
  • Paint job is prone to scratches and marks
  • Only one USB port, no SD card slot
  • Not really suited to lap-top use (or other precarious perches)

Bottom Line

A major improvement over the Surface Pro, but a few issues still leave it struggling for relevance among established tablet, netbook and laptop form factors.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
