I wasn't fortunate enough to be granted a review unit from Microsoft and my personal 15-inch Surface Book 2 arrived late on Thursday, so I've only had a few hours to set up, benchmark and begin sketching on the new premium laptop.

First impressions are very positive. Performance results are averaging 200% improvement over the original Surface Book. This is truly a desktop replacement and worthy of being the Surface team's flagship.

That being said, it's clearly not for everyone. I hope to have more to say before the end of the weekend. Watch this space.
