Kauflust (II): Microsoft Surface Book PB

Did I say hardware should not be that expensive? Well. Err. Hmm.

I bought a Microsoft Surface Book 1st gen back in 2016 for around 2,700 Euro, which was pretty good equipped with a Core-i7-processor, 16 GB of memory and a 512 GB SSD. I gave it to one of our brightest minds once he joined the company back this year – ultimately feeling like I miss something.

For whatever reason, I surfed on eBay the other day.

s-l400I stumbled upon some Surface Books 1st gen, equipped with the smaller Core-i5-processor, smaller SSDs and less RAM.

It felt like „For writing stuff and surfing around, it would be ok“, so I looked a little deeper into the offerings and found a Surface Book with Performance Base, equipped with 16 GB RAM, a 512 GB SSD and the faster GTX 965m graphics. For not even half of the price a current gen model costs. And also cheaper than other Surface Books with PB or at least discrete graphics. Offered by a solid dealer, including an invoice.

What shall I say?

It will be delivered on Friday.

And I don’t want to discuss my shopping behaviors.
