Developing for Hololens on Microsoft Surface

edited June 2016 in Questions And Answers

We're considering purchasing portable dev laptops for Hololens.

Q1. Does the Hololens Emulator run adequately on a Surface Pro 4?
If so what are the minimum specs/configuration that are required and what would you suggest?

Q2. If purchasing a Surface Book instead, what are the minimum specs required to run the Emulator without any significant lag?
