Microsoft enters the laptop game with the hybrid Surface Book
Hey, I'm Dan Ackerman here at Microsoft's big press event in New York.
Surprise today, the Microsoft Surface Book is a 13.5 inch laptop.
Very thin, very light.
Powered by current sixth generation Intel Core i series processors.
But the big surprise here is that Despite the fact that Microsoft is making its own laptop, it's actually also a hybrid.
You press this button, and the entire top comes off and it's a stand alone tablet.
Now, inside the base is some extra components including a GPU.
You usually don't find in a thin system like this.
But you can just pull this off, and it's almost like a regular surface pro tablet.
And of course when you're ready for all the power together, you put it back on.
The hinge itself is very unique.
They call it a dynamic falcon hinge.
Has kind of an accordion look.
Feels very smooth.
Doesn't click or anything and stays fairly stiffly wherever you put it.
This thing should be shipping later in October starting at $1499.
I'm Dan Ackman and that is the Microsoft Surface Book.
