Of course, you probably shouldn't be surprised that it costs $3,199.00, a $500 price jump.

Surface Book pre-orders sell out on Microsoft Store

There's no doubt that the Surface Book was the most exciting device Microsoft announced last week.

Review: Acer Aspire One Cloudbook Windows 10 laptop

Not everyone needs or wants a powerful laptop. For many, a low cost and light design are miles ahead on their list of priorities over small boosts in performance -- if the laptop can surf the web, watch videos, and download music, what's there to complain about?
