Microsoft New Surface Book Laptop

It’s the first laptop ever which is ever built by Microsoft. Apart from the fact that it is lot more than a laptop. In this particular gadget you can really fully remove the screen, so that it can be used as a tablet. If you put the screen back on, you can also choose to flip it all the way around and use it like a convertible, with the keyboard propping it up.

The Surface Book features are includes a 13.5-inch display with a pixel density of 267PPI. That display is optically bonded to the glass, which means it should look good. Microsoft says the Surface Book is housed in a machined magnesium body — basically, it’s a silver metal laptop, but it manages to look far different than a MacBook, despite its similarities in name.

Possibly the standout design element here is the Surface Book’s hinge. Microsoft calls it a “dynamic fulcrum.” From the side, it appears to almost flex as it bends. It leaves a slightly awkward gap when the Surface Book is fully closed, but it also make higher the display at an angle when the screen is spinning around for using it as a tablet. A button on the side releases the display, which detaches from the top of the hinge.

As per Microsoft the Surface Book is for someone who wants a bigger screen and “the perfect typing experience” of a laptop. For one, that includes a backlit keyboard. There are also deeper keys, with 1.6mm of travel. Microsoft is kind of freaking out about this keyboard. It’s calling it “perfect” and saying it’ll type almost silently.

Apart from all that, the Surface Book includes a glass track pad with five points of touch sensitivity.

Naturally, the Surface Book will work with Microsoft’s Surface Pen’s style. As for why you’d want to use this device as a tablet, Microsoft is talking about it as a “digital clipboard.” That’s not the most compelling phrase, but it’s really everything that the Surface line has always been: a very powerful tablet that runs desktop Windows. This one just happens to do a much better job of transforming into the laptop that it really wants to be.

On the inside, the Surface Book has the latest Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, from the Skylake family. There’s also an Nvidia GeForce GPU with GDDR5 memory, however that’s located in the base, so you can keep the display docked to tap into its power. The dock also includes two USB 3.0 ports and an SD card slot.

Alongside, the all features, the machine is believed to keep running for 12 hours on a single charge. “Ounce-for-ounce, pound-for-pound,” Microsoft claims, “this is the fastest 13-inch laptop ever made anywhere on any planet.” Microsoft says it’ll actually be twice as fast as the MacBook Pro.

The Surface Book will go on sale October 26th with prices beginning at $1,499. You can Preorders the device from this week, from 7th October 2015.
