As the war between laptops and tablets rages on, we may finally have a glimpse at how the whole thing will end, and it comes from Microsoft. The Microsoft Surface Book, simply put, is the best of both worlds and then some. At its most basic, it’s a powerful, full laptop designed with enough power to satisfy the creative types who tend to stick with Apple. Detach the screen portion and you have a tablet with a 13.5″ display, which works with OneNote and the Surface Pen. The most unique aspect, however, is seen when you reattach the tablet and allow the funky hinge to flip the screen into creative canvas mode. From there you can sketch and draw away and have your keyboard just a flip away. You’ll have access to all of Microsoft Office, Photoshop, and a lot of the other software you’re already familiar with, but you’re granted all sorts of new freedom and ways to use it.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
