Surface Book 3: Unboxing and Hands-On

This week, Microsoft has made available several Surface devices, like the brand new Surface Go 2. But arriving at my office today, is the other end of the spectrum, the Surface Book 3.

The Book series from Microsoft is a high-end device that is designed for creative and other professionals who need workstation-class hardware in a mobile form factor. With the Book 2 showing its age, the Book 3 doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel but it does bump the specs quite a bit.

On the device that Microsoft sent me for review purposes, the hardware is configured with Quad-core 10th Gen Intel  Core i7-1065G7 CPU, NVIDIA GTX 1660Ti, 32 GB of RAM and a 500GB SSD. And with a price tag of $2799, it’s not cheap, but at the same time, there is a lot of performance packed behind the display.

Say Goodbye to Traditional PC Lifecycle Management

Traditional IT tools, including Microsoft SCCM, Ghost Solution Suite, and KACE, often require considerable custom configurations by T3 technicians (an expensive and often elusive IT resource) to enable management of a hybrid onsite + remote workforce. In many cases, even with the best resources, organizations are finding that these on-premise tools simply cannot support remote endpoints consistently and reliably due to infrastructure limitations.
