Microsoft just introduced its first-ever laptop on Tuesday, called Surface Book. Weighing in at a little over three pounds, Surface Book is the fastest 13-inch laptop ever created, and it’s two times faster than Apple’s MacBook Pro, according to Microsoft. It will be available October 26 starting at $1,499.
The Microsoft Surface Book is machined out of a single piece of magnesium, and is built with a dynamic fulcrum hinge. The display has a muscle wire lock so you can remove it entirely and use it as a tablet. You can even flip the display around to draw on it like a clipboard.
The trackpad is made with precision glass that can support five-point multitouch. Surface Book is powered by Intel’s sixth-generation Core i7 chip and an incredibly fast graphics card from NVIDIA. It also comes with up to 16GB of RAM and 1 terabyte of storage space. It has a backlit, ergonomic keyboard. It comes with two USB ports and a full-size SD card, and it offers 12 hours of battery life.
