Microsoft reveals first-ever laptop, Surface BookMicrosoft announces its first laptop built solely by the company. The new 13-inch notebook runs WIndows 10, has a glass trackpad with five points of touch and 12 hours of battery life.
This is the ultimate laptop, this is the first laptop ever built by Microsoft and redefines everything redefines everything, of what you'd expect in a laptop. Let's start with the screen, 13 and a half inch diagonal straight across. It delivers six million pixels to your eyes, six million, There is nothing close to it. Nothing. 267 DPI in the depth of this screen is remarkable. The typing experience on this product is perfect. My favorite thing is the dish in the keys just slide your fingers in, it feels unreal. The track pad. Optimized by the Windows 10 engineering team to bring you precision perfect tracking. It is made of glass. When you put your finger on it, it glides. It feels so lovely. It's got the latest generation of Intel Core processors in it. They are phenomenal. Ounce for ounce, pound for pound. This is the fastest 13 inch laptop ever made anywhere on any planet. We give you a full 12 hours of battery life to use this product for, 12 hours. Let me tell you what 12 hours means to me, use it for a week I don't have to charge. We compared Surface Pro to the MAC book. Think that was fair. We gonna compare Surface Book and how it compares to a MacBook Pro. By adding the discreet GPU, two extra processors, it fundamentally makes Surface Book two times faster than the MacBook Pro. Two times faster. [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE] It just gives you a sense of the performance in the product. But to give you a better sense let me walk over here. Remember that Surface Dock we talked about earlier? Right here? It works with your Surface Book. So works with Pro 3, Pro 4 and the Surface Book. We enable that with one cord plugging in, nothing else and that's the surface connector. See if I'm up there, I am, great. So I'm just gonna plug in this USB port. Now you're gonna see the PCIE SSD performance in the product, which is basically two times faster than status. If you're paying attention and you understand the kind of details in it, this is just a super fast drive. I'm gonna grab, what we have here is 3 gigabytes of game play, and I'm just gonna pull it onto my screen. And copy it to my desktop, you guys see how fast I copied it. I just want you to see that transfer, so this is three gigs transferring full speed and just coming through and boom just like that it's on my desktop.
