I was hoping it would be more efficient with better battery life, rather than more powerful.

Disappointed there is no Ryzen model - AMD seem to have an edge in compute efficiency, but maybe not in tablet form factor?

With the Surface Pro 3 (i7 model) I made my first, and last, foray into the world of Surface. It has -no- GPU power, and the new model is no exception, which is a major detriment to a world of increasing reliance on the GPU for even basic tasks, such as internet browsing, and even worse it requires over $250 in additional purchases (pen and keyboard) to fully function on top of the $1100 starting cost.

$1350 can buy a lot of laptop, especially the ASUS ProArt series which comes -much- better equipped, and all you lack is the thinness.
