Microsoft unveils new Surface Book and Surface Pro 4

Microsoft has expanded its portfolio of Surface devices with Surface Pro 4 and a new Surface Book laptop.

Unveiled alongside various new Lumia devices, Microsoft Band 2 and a Microsoft Hololens Development Edit at an event in New York City, both the Surface Book (pictured) and Surface Pro 4 are designed for Microsoft’s new Windows 10 operating system.

Billed as the ‘ultimate laptop’, the Surface Book is targeted at users who need power, from enterprises, to designers, has an integrated backlit keyboard with a Dynamic Fulcrum Hinge and a muscle wire lock. This enables users to flip and fold down the keyboard, or completely detach it to turn the Book into a tablet.

Surface Book, which works with a stylus, also has a 13.5-inch PixelSense Display, nVidia GeForce for graphics processing, a 12-hour battery life and up to 16GB RAM and 1TB storage. It is powered by a 6th Gen Intel Core processor i7 processor.

Thinner, lighter and faster than its predecessor, the Surface Pro 4 tablet weighs just 766 grams, has a nine-hour battery life, a familiar multi-position kickstand and an improved Type Cover. The device also offers a 12.3-inch PixelSense display, an 8MP auto focus rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera for high-definition video conferencing, and it runs the full Microsoft Office productivity suite.

Surface Pro 4 is powered by 6th Gen Intel Core m3 i5 and i7 processors, making it ‘more powerful, quieter and cooler than ever before’.
