Microsoft Announce Surface Book Laptop
Gareth Andrews / 4 years ago
Microsoft recently pushed hard on their smaller devices, with some rather large devices joining in for good measure. With the rework of the Windows mobiles, the Surface 4 coming after a strong stretch of tablets from Microsoft and even the Surface Hub for all your work based whiteboard needs. It would seem Microsoft are looking at pushing the market yet again with their latest announcement, the Microsoft Surface Book.
Designed with the portability of the Surface series in mind, the screen can be removed to be used as a tablet, or even just propped up at an angle by the keyboard. The Surface book will feature a 13.5-inch screen and features the “dynamic fulcrum”, a twist on the classic hinge used to connect screen to keyboard.
Designed to be a bigger version of the surfaces, the keyboard is heralded as silent while the screen will work exactly like all the previous surfaces. Featuring processors like the Skylake i5 and i7 and a Nvidia GeForce with GDDR5 memory housed in the base giving you that extra graphical kick.
With prices stated to be around $1,4999 (approximately £985), the device looks to bring high prices to match the high-quality components and materials that make it up. With pre-orders to begin on the 7th October, could you see yourself using a new surface book?
