Panos Panay, vice president of product at Microsoft, introduced Surface Pro 2 as laptops that want to bridge the gap between desktop and laptop computers.
Microsoft introduced its new SurfaceBook 2 laptop, a laptop that is up to twice as powerful as the MacBook Pro, but offers a battery life of up to 17 hours.
The Microsoft Surface Book 2 is available in 13-inch (13.5-inch to be exact) and 15-inch versions.
The two models integrate the same design of magnesium that not only makes it resistant but also very light. In addition, the screen can still be separated from your keyboard to become a tablet, but this mechanism has been improved so you do not have to press at the same time that you remove the screen, but you press and a green LED light tells you that the screen can now be detached.
The Surface Book 2 can be configured with up to eighth-generation Intel Core i7 processors, 16GB of RAM, 1TB of SSD storage and an Nvidia video card.
As expected, Surface Book 2 runs the latest version of Windows 10 and the company promises it is twice as powerful as a MacBook Pro and has five times the graphics power of its predecessor.
Surface Book 2 is pre-sale with a starting price of US $ 1,499 (13 inches) and US $ 2,499 (15 inches). The computers will be available on November 16th.
