A Review Of The Surface Book, And Dealing With Zombies


Consumer Reports joined Into Tomorrow this week to tell us about the newest Microsoft Surface Book:

Are you in the market for a new laptop? Consumer Reports recently put the sleek new Microsoft Surface Book to the test. Their electronics spokesman James McQueen joined the show to tell us if they give it up thumbs-up or thumbs-down.

The Microsoft Surface Book is a 13.5-inch detachable laptop we tested with Windows 10 Home, a 6th gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, Intel HD 520 graphics, a touchscreen, and a 128GB solid-state drive.

Microsoft’s first laptop uses a unique electro-mechanical hinge to lock and unlock the display from the base to turn it into a tablet. It’s a powerful computer with long 15-hour battery life and excellent performance, but it’s also expensive – costing just under $1,500. The screen moves when you tap on it. There’s a rear-facing 8MP camera on the tablet and a forward-facing 5MP camera near the top of the screen, as well as stereo microphones at the top rear edge of the display.

The full-sized keyboard, touchpad, labeling, and LED indicators were all well-designed, making it comfortable and convenient to use. The display quality was very good overall. Colors were accurately reproduced, realistic, and natural looking. It was brighter than most, a plus for viewing in bright indoor lighting or outdoors.

All told, the Surface Book is a fantastic performer. It’s near the top of our ratings and is an easy recommendation.

For Into Tomorrow, James McQueen – Consumer Reports

Chris recommended an app he’s been playing with:

Let’s face it. We all hate zombies. The app I’m highlighting this week is an addictive game called I Hate Zombies. It puts YOU in the driver’s seat as you splatter hordes of zombies in the ultimate dash for freedom. You can choose from many different vehicles and perform jumps, flips and tricks as you nitro your way across the USA, leaving the undead in your wake. Splatter the zombies as you mow them down. But control your vehicle carefully. Land the wrong way and your vehicle falls apart and it’s game over. They’re calling this a fun fuelled ride through the zombie apocalypse! I Hate Zombies is free in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
