The Surface line has never been known for power. They're devices that beg to be held, played with, and drawn on. Performance isn’t a weakness, but for most Surface devices, it comes second to design.

The latest version, the Surface Book 3, doubles down on this performance promise with better graphics via the Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti and updated Intel processors. But don't be fooled -- the Surface Book 3 still doesn't have the heart of a true workstation laptop.
