Microsoft's New Laptop: The Surface Book
Have you seen Microsoft's new laptop, the Surface Book? You'd be surprised at how no one had created a laptop as attractive as this one before.
The design is sleek and futuristic. Although it's a powerful computer, the creators made it possible to design a machine that's light and thin. You can detach the screen from the keyboard (so it becomes a tablet), it comes with a pen and now you got two gadgets in one. This device will range between $499 to $1,499 and will be offered in three different styles; the Surface Pro (at $899), the Surface Book (at $1,499), and the Surface 3 (at $499). The first two you can pre-order, while the latter is already available for purchase. (See more details at Microsoft) I'll also leave some of the specs below.
What's exciting about this new computer is the fact that it was created for the needs of this era, and not just to get something out that looks techy enough for the regular buyer of these items. The Surface Book is a clear example of progression; the Surface was first introduced in 2012 as a tablet, Microsoft knew that the touch technology needed to make an entry, and after much work, it's been developed and transformed in what we see today through the Surface Book.
