Surface Book: the new device from Microsoft

Well, it looks like the day has come: Microsoft has released a laptop. Probably, every Microsoft fan has waited for this day, when the tech company released its first laptop. Even if it had a huge success on the hybrid market, Microsoft has released a real laptop, called the Surface Book.

However, the Surface line has also been a mixture of tablet and laptop, even if the keyboards and the trackpad weren’t as good as on a laptop. Moreover, the battery was perfect for a portable machine, but it can also be used at home, on the desk.

With this latest release, Microsoft has declared that the new Surface Book is the ultimate laptop that can be equal to Apple’s MacBook Pro and other high-end Windows laptops. However, even if this new device is considered to be a laptop, it can also be a tablet, due to a display that detaches into something like a digital paper.

The new Microsoft Surface Book is available at the starting price of 1,499 dollars. At this price range, the Surface Book is automatically moved into the high-end laptop market, but customers could also opt for the 1TB of storage model, which costs approximately 3,199 dollars. To be added that the 1,499 dollars model comes with Intel Core i5 processor, also known by the codename Skylake, Intel’s sixth-generation chip and 8GB of RAM.

Moreover, there is also a 1,699 dollars model that doubles the SSD to 256GB. Finally, for the price of 2,699 dollars, customers could opt for a model with a faster Core i7processor and 16GB of RAM.

However, even if this model could come with an incredible hardware, it will never be an ultimate PC gaming laptop, but it is perfect for mainstream games at medium graphics settings. Moreover, the new Microsoft Surface Book is perfect for photo and video editing.

Even if many laptops are easy to be opened, the new Microsoft Surface Book requires two hands, because of it is magnetically sealed. That’s not because Microsoft was afraid that the tablet portion will fall off, but more to protect the hinge.

To be added the Surface Book is a little bit strange, because instead of coming, like many other laptops on the market, with a wide 16:9 ratio, it comes with a 3:2 aspect ratio. Now, with this new feature, users will probably need a couple of days to get used to it.

Probably, Microsoft Surface Book is not the perfect laptop for watching movies, but reading web pages is incredible. Yes, this laptop is probably the best device for reading content on the web and it also has some incredible colors.

As for trackpad and keyboard, Microsoft has definitely paid a lot of attention to these features. Even if on the previous Surface devices, the keyboard and trackpad weren’t perfect, now Microsoft has managed to hit the jackpot. The new trackpad is like a big glass surface where scrolling is very smooth.

As for typing, it can be a little bit weird at first, but when users will get used to it, they will realize that the keys have an incredible feedback.
