Surface Book i7 2-in-1

Design and Display

The Surface Book i7 remains virtually unchanged from the previous model in terms of look. This means it still parades a detachable design that gives you the versatility of a tablet or laptop.

However, this upgraded version appears to be slightly bulkier, weighing 3.63 pounds (1,647 kg) to the original model’s 3.48 pounds.  Surface Book i7 features the same 13.5-inch PixelSense Display which is optimized for touch and Surface Pen.

Power and Performance

On the inside is where Microsoft has worked on the Surface Book i7. The original hybrid was built to deliver professional-grade performance, but Microsoft noted that engineers and gamers wanted even more power out of this machine and it has obliged.

As you may have figured from the name, the new Surface Book is fitted with latest generation Intel Core i7 processor, an upgrade on the Core i5 and Core i7 chip option on last year’s model. The powerful quad-core CPU is backed with a generous 8 GB or 16GB of RAM.

Microsoft Surface Book i7 also gets double the graphics power. Graphics is now crunched by a more powerful NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M graphics solution with dedicated 2GB GDDR5 graphics memory.

With this setup, you should expect minimal glitches when working with intensive professional applications, such as Adobe Premiere Pro and AutoCAD Revit. You should also expect a better gaming experience.

To further guard against the innards of the laptop getting roasted, Microsoft has added another fan to its thermal management system.

Additional Information

As if the 12-hour battery life provided by the first Surface Book wasn’t good enough, Surface Book i7 offers an amazing 16 hours of battery runtime – and that’s for when you are using it in laptop mode.
