    Sadly, no vodka cranberries-- I had to Google that, clearly I was meant to be a tech reviewer and not a bartender :) Our camera person won't even let me have a beer before we start shooting LOL.

    Hey Lisa :)
    Love your reviews, don't let the comments from the peanut gallery get you down.
    You absolutely are one of the better reviewers out there.
    Keep up the fantastic work, looking forward to you review of the SB and if you can try as many games on this device as possible.
    If you can compare to a Lenovo thinkpad flex with 940M that you have reviewed in the past it would be great.
    I want to see exactly what this GPU is capable of.

    Thanks and don't worry, I though the comment was funny (and curious). After this many years, I have a thick skin, but I was thinking that I must have looked like I was having an absolutely giddy time of it :) Much better than looking bored and glassy-eyed LOL.

    Hi Lisa long time fan I love all your reviews, I am really thinking about getting two of the surface book's (wife really wants one). We have two samsung ativ book 9 plus i5 4200u 8gb of ram and samsung 850 evo 500gb drives I got these over a year ago at such an amazing price it's hard to justify the surface book higher price. I already have a qhd screen so the display doesn't wow me. I spend some time with it at best buy I just was expecting skylake to be faster I know it's a dual core still.

    What do you think is it worth it to upgrade in the next few months or wait it out. I mean the extra battery and tablet mode are the main advantages I would be looking to get the i5 non gpu versions and mainly All i use is browser, office, light IT tasks.

    The ATIV Book 9 Plus is a stunning and well made machine. It's simply a laptop. If you want the tablet/convertible experience and the pen, then Surface Book makes sense. Being 2 generations newer, Surface Book will feel faster, though I'm guessing your ATIV still feels responsive enough.

    How is the fan noise and audio quality of the speakers?
