Microsoft Surface Book Announced; See the Specs, Price and Features

Microsoft recently announced innovative devices and the best one in my opinion is the Surface Book.  Windows devices and beautiful design don’t usually go together but Microsoft just showed everyone that things are going to change for the better.  The Microsoft Surface Book was a surprise announcement at the recently held Microsoft event and it appears that a lot of people were indeed surprised with this piece of device.


The Microsoft Surface Book is a hybrid device but it unlike compromised hybrids of the past, the Microsoft Surface Book, on paper at least, does both laptop and tablet modes excellently.  As a laptop, the Surface Book is powerful and the features are top notch.  Design-wise, the Surface Book can definitely take on the Macbook Pro line of Apple.  I am a Macbook Pro user and a happy owner at that and yet, the Surface Book stirred something inside me and now I actually want to own one.



The Surface Book works with a unique hinge which Microsoft calls a dynamic fulcrum.  It looks interesting and works interesting as well. The Surface Book comes with a Surface Pen that has a year’s worth of battery life.  That’s just impressive.



The Surface Book has everything any laptop hunter would look for in a new laptop.  Microsoft did not scrimp on specs.  It packs a huge enough 13.5-inch display that has a sharp resolution (Surface Book as a pixel density of 267PPI), it is designed well and looks good to boot, and it packs sufficient power even for heavy users.  The Microsoft Surface Book runs on the latest Skylake Intel Core i5 and i7 processors.  The dock houses an Nvidia GeForce GPU with GDDR5 memory, two USB 3.0 ports and an SD card slot.

Microsoft says the Surface Book has a battery life of 12 hours which is actually impressive considering its high-res display.  It of course runs on Microsoft 10.

The Surface Book is available starting October 26, but availability in the Philippines is still unknown.  As to pricing, the Microsoft Surface Book will start at $1,499 or around Php67,000.
