The Surface Book 3 continues Microsoftâ€™s five-year mission to create the â€œultimate laptop,” still uniquely melding a tablet and keyboard base that can be used to create, work, and game.
But the goal is harder to achieve in 2020 than ever before. At $1,599 up to $3,400, the Surface Book 3 is pricey. Worse, it offers little improvement over a new and very strong generation of dedicated laptops, from gaming machines with Nvidiaâ€™s latest RTX hardware to consumer devices optimized for extreme battery life and connectivity. Even Microsoftâ€™s own Surface Pro 7 provides a superior tablet experience to the Surface Book 3â€™s.Â
