It seems Microsoft has been spying in our dreams! First the Surface tablet and now they have surprised us with Microsoft Surface Book. A tough competitor for MacBook Pro; It`s going to be next market leader for high end laptops.
For decades Apple has been ruling the market in high end laptop section. Now they have tough competitor. You are just started liking Microsoft Surface tablets; Microsoft gave us double bonanza by launching Microsoft Surface Book. It has both the features of a Tablet and traditional Laptop. Check this out in Microsoft official launch event.
A touchscreen tablet computer that held tightly to the base and still detach at the touch of a button, and dual GPUs ( One in the tablet and one in the base) that can somehow smoothly managed by the Windows 10 OS.
You may ask then why not call it a notebook then, but it`s not a notebook. Microsoft is not even promoting it as a notebook. They have different name for it- Clipboard. The fact that the top half can be detach from the base and a stylus pen makes it a clipboard.
You can write, read and learn or if you want more traditional look, then it can serve as laptop as well. This is not convertible or hybrid, it`s just a dual purpose surface Book.
The idea behind designing Microsoft Surface Book is more likely to have a Book in your hand. The design looks similar to MacBook Pro but it has a metal body instead of polycarbonate plastic.
The touchpad has upgraded for a Glass touch pad and it has become wider. There are more gaps accommodated between keys to make it more comfortable and cozy.
The Surface Book has a 13.5-inch diagonal PixelSense, 3,000×2, 000 pixel display, with 6 million pixels at 267 pixels per inch. The screen supports touch and you can write on it with the included Surface Pen.
It’s equipped with a 5-megapixel front-facing Windows Hello face-authentication camera to unlock the laptop, plus an 8-megapixel rear camera that can record 1080p HD video.
At the first instance the Surface look huge but it is lighter and thinner than ever. However Price is the area that concerns us but believe me guys it worth a shot.
Company is directly taking shot by promoting it as fastest Laptop ever on MacBook Pro and Air model.
Up close, the Surface Book feels expensive, solid and distinct. The laptop closes, but it doesn’t seal. There’s an intentional gap between the keyboard and screen, until they meet perfectly at the front edge.
