Design and Display
Microsoft Surface Book, which is its maker’s first laptop, is a high-end product – you can even tell this from its build quality. It features a chassis made of premium aluminium with nice silver finish. The convertible laptop is relatively thin and slim with thickness starting at about 13 mm and weight put at around 1.6 kg.

The Surface Book parades a detachable design common to Surface devices, enabling you use as a laptop or as tablet (with the keyboard detached or flipped). It is equipped with a backlit keyboard and a glass-covered trackpad.

The machine sports a 13.5-inch PixelSense display with an amazing resolution of 3000 x 2000 pixels and a pixel density of approximately 267 ppi, promising crisp viewing.

Performance and OS

Configured to be a top performer, Microsoft Surface Book comes with latest sixth-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor under the hood. It is equipped with up to 16 GB of RAM and an optional discrete NVIDIA graphics card with GDDR5 video memory.

Microsoft says the laptop is built to handle whatever ‘creative tasks’ you throw at it. The company also says the Surface Book is the fastest ever among laptops of similar size. It runs on the new, feature-heavy Windows 10 Pro operating system.
