The latest surface pros/surfacebook are fantastic if you get a high end SKU, but for that money I would point to an XPS personally.

Nope.  It's just a computer like any other.

Nice, I'm waiting on the Surface Book 3 to be announced then I can finally get a new laptop.  Was expecting something late last year but seems to be taking a while longer.  Hope there's something soon, I'm sitting on some cash and don't want to get fomo if I buy too soon.
