The idea of having the power of a laptop and portability of a tablet has a vice-grip on me and I very nearly purchased a Surface Book before getting my iMac. But they're costly things. Can other companies, offering less expensive machines, compete with the sheer weight and magnitude of Microsoft and the Surface brand? How does Samsung's latest convertible laptop, the Samsung Galaxy Book, stack up against Microsoft's own Surface Pro?
