Microsoft Unveils New Line of Windows 10 Products, Including First Surface Book Laptop
At its major event in New York on Tuesday, Microsoft released a new line of Windows 10 devices, including a fresh take on the traditional laptop, which many analysts are saying could be a “MacBook killer.”
The new devices included an updated and slimmed down Surface Pro 4 tablet, new Lumia phones, and Microsoft Band fitness products. But it was the Microsoft Surface Book that stole the show on Tuesday.
The high-performance laptop includes “incredibly accurate and responsive” pen and touch support, Microsoft said. Different models of the device will run on the 6th Generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors with up to 12 hours of battery life. And the 13.5” optically bonded PixelSense display offers a high-contrast 267 dpi display with improved latency and parallax, “making it not just beautiful to look at, but natural and fluid to write on,” the company said.
