Microsoft Surface Book with Performance Base - $2,399
Finally, there’s the more unorthodox option for gamers, Microsoft’s Surface Book with Performance Base.
Tthe Surface Book is included in round-ups of the best Windows 10 laptops, but the Surface Book with Performance Base has the horsepower to play games. The Surface Book is dominated by a 13.5-inch touch-screen display that detaches from its body for up to 3 hours. The base and tablet weigh 3.63 pounds together.
Every Surface Book with Performance Base includes a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M graphics card with 2GB of dedicated RAM. That’s less than the others but ok if you’re looking to play games at HD resolution on modest settings. Inside is an Intel Core i7 processor that’s a generation behind, with either 8GB of RAM or 16GB of RAM included.
The Surface Book with Performance base is for light gamers that also wouldn’t mind replacing their tablet too.
