Microsoft’s Next Gen Laptop: The Surface Book

Microsoft is on its way to releasing its very first laptop, the surface book. A powerful light-weight device that triples as a laptop, tablet, and note pad with more powerful hardware options and newly added features.

 

Spec Options:

With the surface book you will be running the latest version of Windows 10 Pro and be able to choose from 4 different SSD storage options, 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.  There will also be 2 CPU options with the 6th generation Intel i5 or i7 processors as well as 2 memory options 8GB or 16 GB of RAM. Another awesome add on option not seen in any of the previous surface devices is the NVIDIA GeForce GPU which is built into the detachable keyboard. Unfortunately the NVIDIA graphics add on is built into the detachable keyboard and not the device itself.  So in order to utilize the added graphics power the keyboard must be attached. The base model with an i5 CPU starts at $1,499 and the i7 models starts at $2,099. This is definitely a pricey device but with the ability to replace your conventional laptop and tablet it????????s worth it.

 

Productivity in the workplace:

The surface pen has some new features that can benefit you in the workplace. Hold down the button on the top of the pen and Cortana will open so you can search the web, documents, open applications, and set reminders for appointments and meetings. Hit the button one time and a blank one note document will open for quick and easy note taking on the go you can also change what program you want to open when you click the button. The detachable keyboard is full sized and back lit to ensure a comfortable and accurate means of typing. The NVIDIA GPU add on is very use full for graphic heavy applications so you can keep designing with auto CAD or photo shop on the go. Since the surface book is running Windows 10 pro and has ample storage you can enjoy all the features of Microsoft office applications anywhere anytime as well as space for all of your important spreadsheets, word documents, and photos.
