I Expected More From the Surface Book’s Battery Life →

Dan Seifert:

Also missed on me is the increased battery life. In our rundown test, the Surface Book lasted 10 hours and 21 minutes, which is quite good. But in my real-world usage, browsing the web, jumping between a half-dozen apps, writing email, monitoring social feeds, etc., it struggled to last a full work day before calling it quits. Most days, the Surface Book would last between six and eight hours, which is about average for a laptop of this size. (Using the Book as a tablet worked for about two hours before it died, which is unchanged from last year.) That’s a far cry from Microsoft’s claimed 16 hours and less than my colleague Vlad Savov could get with the new 13-inch MacBook Pro. Fortunately, this Surface Book has no issues going to sleep when it’s closed and in my bag, which is a problem I’ve encountered with numerous Windows 10 laptops over the past year.

When Apple showed the new MacBook Pros, I actually looked around at the competition, and the Surface Book was one of two laptops that piqued my interest, mainly due to 16 hours of battery life. I had foolishly assumed that I could indeed use it for that long without a charge.

One other thing that completely put me off is its weight.

    Posiadam od tygodnia Surface Book pierwszej generacji. To jest bardziej parodia laptopa, niż “ultimate laptop”, jak go reklamuje MS. Fatalnie wyważony, Nie da sie go otworzyć bez gimnastyki.

    No i system z masą błędów. Zamiast obiecanych 10 godzin pracuje 4-5/

    Ten niby dorównujący Makom touchpad jest żałosny.
    Mam wrażenie, że albo recenzenci kłamali, albo byli opłaceni, albo po prostu nie mają pojęcia o tym, jak pracować powinien dobry laptop.
