Microsoft, one of the world’s leading software, hardware and middleware manufacturers have currently added an amazing laptop computer to their already impressive portfolio of devices.
The brand whose vision is “to see every home own at least one personal computer” announced the Microsoft’s Surface Book on Tuesday. During the announcement, claims were also made at to how the Surface Book is the world’s “thinnest” and “most powerful Personal Computer ever created”. These bold claims, if justified, are set to increase the firm base and brand presence of Microsoft due to the expected revenue this is expected to rake in.
Microsoft has never taken it upon itself to create its own personal computer. It otherwise enters contractual agreement with manufacturers who use its software for their products. This laptop release, the Surface Book, marks the first in the line of Microsoft’s Laptops. More is expected to follow and considering the start Microsoft has made in the market, they are looking to position themselves as the brand to beat.
The Surface Book comes with some awesome specifications that makes it worth to look at in the first place. Packing 6 million pixels and boasting a Gorilla Glass for its display, the specs continue to amaze with the introduction of PixelSense touch technology, same as is on the Surface Pro 4 Tablet.
In terms of other specifications, the Book comes with a 13″ screen and “supports 8GB or 16GB of RAM, and 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of storage.” The Windows 10-powered PC has a USB type-C connector, SD card slot and can boast of 12 hours of battery life according to Microsoft.
Whenever you want something handy, Microsoft has given you the option of detaching the screen from the keyboard, transforming your PC into a tablet. Awesome is the fact that it has come with its own Stylus Pen.
Microsoft has also built the keyboard to have their own backlights and made sure the keys would be quiet. You therefore do not have to fear constant rattling when making heavy typing.
Starting at just below $1500, it costs fairly much but for its specifications, is worth every dollar. Pre-order starts Wednesday.
“We’re moving people from needing to choosing to loving Windows, and these devices promise to fuel even more enthusiasm and opportunity for the entire Windows ecosystem,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said at the event.
