The XPS 17’s gaming capability is best when configured with the Nvidia RTX 2060. This is a gaming laptop-class graphics card, and the XPS 17 makes great use of it. Thanks to its new thermal system, the XPS 17 can push the RTX 2060 up to 60 watts. This was the configuration I reviewed, and it made a huge difference in both gaming and video editing.

But they’re also quite different, with the Surface Pro 7 being a detachable tablet and the Surface Book 3 13 being a hybrid laptop with a tear-off display that houses most of the laptop’s components.

This means you can do a great deal at one time — think calls, browsing, and spreadsheets — and is no slouch when it comes to storage, either.

In terms of ports, we’re looking at USB-C, MicroSDXC, and headphone inputs, which is more than decent for a tablet. In terms of battery life, it seems to get up to nine hours on a single charge, which is a full workday. … [Read more...] about Microsoft Surface Go on sale for only $440 for 4th of July
