11 secrets you didn’t know about your new Surface Book or Surface Pro 4.

In fact, it’s a logical move by Microsoft, whose 13.5-inch Surface Book is a direct competitor to the 13-inch Macbook Pro — at launch, the company directly compared the two models, claiming its laptop is two times faster than Apple’s. Besides an overview of Windows 10 and Surface Book’s basic features, Microsoft offers a set of tips for MacBook users who are making the switch, as well as instructions on how to move your photos, files and emails from a Mac to the Surface Book. If you’re on an older Surface Pro 3 or Surface 3, you can set the pen button functionality, but that’s not available right now for the newer devices. It has a 13.5-inch touchscreen display, and comes with a range of Intel Core processors, 8GB to 16GB of memory, and, in some configurations, a discrete GPU unit.

To pop it open to change out the AAAA battery, grasp the shaft and then turn the end with the pocket clip on it counter-clockwise about an eighth of an inch until it clicks. At the very end of the plastic strip just above where your finger would rest when using it, however, there’s a hidden button that acts as right mouse click. If you’re curious about how to enter the system’s UEFI to muck around with the boot order or turn off the cameras, you can do that by shutting down the system.

But if you’re a Linux user, you’re probably already in the advanced category, and there is no greater sense of glory than planting a Penguin on a Microsoft-branded device. Microsoft doesn’t document it, but you can actually swap the Clipboard section of a Surface Book that came without a GPU onto a base that came with it. Unfortunately, Nvidia’s GameStream, ShadowPlay and Battery Boost don’t work and probably won’t, because only GeForce GTX-class cards support the feature. Go into the Surface Book’s control panel, select Hardware and Sound, then click Nvidia Control Panel. (If you’ve installed GeForce Experience you can skip this and just right-click on the desktop and select Nvidia Control Panel).
