BEST BACK TO SCHOOL DEVICE? Laptop VS Hybrid 2-1 VS Tablet

by birtanpublished on May 19, 2021

Hey guys what is going on it's Karl here back we in another episode we've got a really fun one on deck today you can kind of see what's being teased right here and it is back-to-school season and one of the biggest questions that I get is usually what is the best device to grab whether that be a dedicated laptop a tablet or perhaps a tuned one so I've came DUP on Microsoft for this very challenge to look at three of the best in their respective class categories and at the end of this video I'm actually giving away a Microsoft Surface laptops one of you lucky peeps and it's super simple to enter simply

Just sub to the channel follow me over on Instagram and leave a comment down below on why that feature or why this device would be right for you and the regula for back-to-school season starts I will ship out one of these laptops to one of you lucky peeps so you can bring it back to school back to work wherever you go back to starting off from September so best of luck to you all let's get into this challenge so for the first device it's the newest and if you haven't checked it out this is the new surface laptop and yes I think this one is the most refined out of the three

It's a full-on dedicated laptop it doesn't have any bells or whistles in terms of using it as a hybrid – and one which is what most of you are looking for and might be the reason why this might be the preferred choice for most of you guys out there so price-wise entry-level model of the service laptop starts at a thousand bucks and for that you get an i5 four gigs of RAM and 128 gigs of storage if you want to upgrade fully to the max spec you're looking at $2,200 for the i7 for 16 gigs of ram and for 512 gigs of on-board storage twenty two hundred dollars is a lot of money

And in my opinion the mid-range model at 1,300 bucks it's still an i5 gets you eight gigs of ram slightly bigger storage space I think Microsoft knows that will be the best option and if you can manage to spend the 300 extra dollars if you can justify that I think that's the best bang for your buck the best value option for the circus laptop the hinge mechanism is nice and strong it's sleek compact it's perfectly into your bag the keyboard on this has an Alcantara cover and Alcantara is usually something that you find in high-end sports cars it is

Very nice to type on just be careful though if you're a student I was recently just one and I know that you love to snack on chips eat candy this might get a bit dirty especially with those greasy fingerprints when you're chowing down Pizza late-night trying to finish an essay at 4 a.m. maybe just something to consider typically keep it safe battery life is super super important whether you're sitting in lecture the entire day I've got 9 hours of usage out of this that's light to medium word processing once you start watching movies playing a couple games

You're looking at around 3 to 4 hours which still for a laptop this thin this portable that is pretty effing awesome the second one on the list bit of a Frankenstein this is a bit of a two-in-one hybrid this is the surface book and for the non 90% of you out there for maybe weird people like me this one is my personal favorite so this one's a tad bit different in the fact that yeah it is it two in one you can remove the top you just heard that clicking sound and now this becomes the clipboard and you can use this as a standalone tablet and that's what I

Really love it is in true two and one and maybe one of the reasons why it's so odd so different and maybe that's why it's my favorite because I think that pretty much describes me a bit odd and it's a bit different so when you detach the top as I mentioned it becomes the clipboard and that does have internal hardware so you can use it on its own battery life is only 2 to 3 hours but when you touch it back to the base which has a full dedicated keyboard it has battery life of around 8 to 9 hours once again and becomes a perfect device to use on its own together it becomes

Essentially a perfectly working a lot times the keyboard here is once again awesome to use the glass trackpad is on point maybe it could be slightly larger and that's me coming over from my macbook but it doesn't have Alcantara so you can have your thing prints nice and greasy eat as much pizza as you want and you can just give this a quick wipe down and it should be good to go so perhaps slightly more robust than the surface laptop and in terms of refinement and look this is where the surface book might not win you any awards it does look a bit Frankenstein

Ish like I mentioned because of this interesting hinge mechanism we do have this very strange gap that I just can't get over and when you're sticking this thing into your backpack traveling with it between classes that's where lint nasty stuff bits of food will love to get caught and it's just not too pleasant to look at to tell you the truth and in terms of price this might turn off a few of you also the base end model starts at thirteen hundred and fifty dollars for that you get an i5 eight gigs of RAM and 128 gigs of storage fully maxed out we're looking at

A bleeding $2,500 for the i7 16 gigs of ram and of course 512 gigs and in the end this is still my personal favorite on the list I know not all of you will agree with me you do have to live with a couple compromises and you have to dare to be a tad bit different but in the end that is okay if you do end up grabbing this I don't think you'll be disappointed and the last competitor on today's comparison is the surface pro and I know that you can get its own dedicated keyboard with it it is the keyboard slash taste combo but if you're in school and if you're looking to use

This that doesn't really work all the time as you often have to type notes on your lap you don't always have a desk so I didn't really think that would be a really fair comparison as you couldn't really use the keyboard all the time and I wanted to review this strictly as a tablet and with that said it is an awesome tablet if you are using the virtual keyboard and the surface pen it does work great but once again if you're looking for productivity sake I just can't be as productive I'm just not as efficient if I had a dedicated keyboard and I just couldn't keep up in class and

That's where I think this guy falls a tad bit short especially for being a student I wouldn't want to have this one as my sole and only device pricing wise it is the cheapest option but it also has the lowest internal specs for the baseline at 800 bucks you're getting an AI core m3 4 gigs of ram 128 gigs of storage if you go for the mid-range I 5 that's at 1300 and of course the top and i7 16 gigs of ram and one terabyte of SSD you're looking at a jaw-dropping $2,700 this guy isn't cheap another thing for the surface pro out of the three devices it has the shortest

Battery I'm getting around six and a half hours per charge and if you've got class the entire day you might not be able to charge this guy comparing it to say the surface laptop which is that nine hours this is where it might fall once again just a tad bit short regardless if you go with any of these devices I don't think you'll be disappointed let me know your thoughts in the comments down below which your favorite device was I think most of you will be satisfied with the surface laptop it's the newest of the bunch and it's definitely getting the most

Traction just remember I am giving that device away just be sure to follow all the instructions follow me over on Instagram smash that like button sub to the channel and I wish all of you–and awesome back-to-school season have tons of fun don't take it too seriously and don't do anything I wouldn't do I'll catch you guys in my next episode or one of my next vlogs face
