The Ultimate Laptop

Microsoft Raises the Bar on 2-in-1 Devices

|

Powerful performance, meticulously crafted, crystal clear screen resolution: meet Surface Book, the ultimate laptop. On October 6th Microsoft said “Hello” and surprised the technology world with the unveiling of its first ever laptop. This powerful new device seamlessly switches between tablet and laptop, providing amazing versatility and the crucial performance you need to create wherever and however you want. And that’s just the beginning! Here are 5 more reasons to love the new Surface Book.

Microsoft Surface BookUltimate Performance

The latest Intel Core processors and up to 16GB RAM and 12 hours of battery life deliver the ultimate performance you need to power your ideas. Surface Book’s high quality Dolby speakers provide amazing sound and front and autofocus rear cameras let you take sharp photos and video. Comprised of 6 million megapixels, the screen resolution is simply incredible with outstanding image quality that surpasses the MacBook Pro. There’s no doubt that the new Microsoft PixelSense technology combined with the ability to run applications with touch of a pen make Surface Book the clear choice for power users who need mobility. But wait, there’s more.

Ultimate Versatility

This versatile 2-in-1 Surface Book, as either a laptop or tablet, is ultra-thin and ridiculously light while still offering the ports you need to be ultra productive at work or at home.

Additionally, being able to disconnect for tablet mode or reverse the canvas while staying connected to the base is integral to achieving the flexibility you need to collaborate. Turn the screen around with ease or hand the tablet over to a co-worker like a piece of paper—it’s simple to use and go about your daily tasks or collaborative projects. Still not convinced the Surface Book is all that—and even more?

Advanced Technology

Another example of exciting cutting edge Microsoft technology that I want to tell you about is Windows Hello. A more personal way to sign in, Windows Hello

offers you a fast and accurate way to keep your device secure. Just show your face or touch your finger and be immediately recognized. And not only is Windows Hello more convenient than typing a password—it’s much safer. Windows Hello offers enterprise-grade security that will meet the requirements of organizations—even those with some of the strictest requirements and regulations.

What’s On Your Mind?

Now, searching for information is even better with Cortana. The intelligent personal assistant is a huge time-saver that helps you get more done anywhere. Cortana is there to make things easier for you and keep you up to date on the things that matter to you. Whether it’s to keep you in the loop or help you manage your everyday life, Cortana is there for you.

Capture What’s Important

Keep all your notes together on Surface Book with OneNote, a one-click notebook. Record all your thoughts, ideas, and to-dos in one location. Surface Book is the best way to experience all of the forward-thinking technology from Microsoft. Use OneNote on Surface Book as a laptop or as a tablet. Whichever you choose, you’ll be able to streamline your work with this powerfully simple solution to accomplish it all.

Microsoft Surface Book Has Everyone Talking

Surface Book is packed with features and perfect for all types of organizations. It can shift its shape and purpose to be exactly what you need—where and when you need it. There's no limit to what you can achieve with the versatility and power of Microsoft Surface Book. Take it from me that you can believe all the excitement surrounding Surface Book. The future of laptop computing is here!
