This is such a gorgeous product.
This product is so meticulously crafted.
When I talk about the details of putting a TV together with my dad, this is unreal what this does.
Every single part of this product, every detail thought through, every single detail.
When you look at this product and you put it in your hands you're gonna find no reference to how any of these parts have come together in the product.
You won't find this true, you won't find anything that would be the parting line across the device.
You see perfect lines, a perfect flow of energy when you pull it apart and open it simultaneously you see a ton and ton balance in the colors.
In product making we have a thing called the first three we talked about design lines all the time.
What's the first read on the product?
How does it feel.
It's meant to be silent to the eyes.
Its critical, when you look at it is a feel good, does it draw you in?
What does it mean, why?
How do we get people into the flow how do we get it moving/ It really is a product that draws you in and its one of these products for you have to feel it to understand it.
And so we'll do that.
Can I show you this device?
I wanna talk about the way we made it with you if that's cool, am I embarrassing you right now?
I probably am.
I'm, I mean you have lovely equipment, I don't wanna hurt it, you don't have to move, stay right there, stay right there, no, totally cool, you do have to move though.
So scoot in a little bit.
All right, this is a Surface laptop and this is burgundy.
You're wearing burgundy.
I am wearing burgundy.
We didn't plan this, did we?
That's pretty cool.
I want you to see it.
I want you to feel it.
I want you to kind of get the essence of this product.
When you think of what we're trying to do with the laptop and where we want to push things.
We want to push things a little bit further.
We wanna move from things that are feeling like machines And we wanna move to something that's more personal, something that's just more personal to you.
Keep it for the show.
Show it to whoever you want.
Do you like it?
I like it, but I mean I [INAUDIBLE].
If you take a look, we've designed the product in four gorgeous colors.
Burgundy, graphite gold, platinum, and cobalt blue.
All beautifully, all beautifully inspired through different elements of nature, to bring it to life.
And the idea of making something more personal and bringing it to you is critical in this product.
Now, when you hold this product it feels amazingly thin and light, which is really important when it comes to a laptop like this.
It's 2.76 pounds, it's under 14 and a half millimeters.
And with one finger you can open the screen, which is super cool, but it's very elegant in the sense that I just open it smoothly, just like that, and what you get is a 13 and a half diagonal with a three by two aspect ratio.
This is, when I think of that aspect ratio and this diagonal, that's the productivity of a 14 inch laptop in your standard 16 by nine format.
So it's like a 14 inch laptop but it feels and acts like a 13 inch size when it's in your bag.
And here's great when you close this product it feels so elegant.
It's important that it sounds good when you close it.
Cuz when you're done with your thought and you close something don't you want closure?
Of course you do.
now when you look at the products, when you look at the products you're using right now.
And there's a lot of them out there you're gonna find a rubber bumper around the screen you're gonna find either a piece of plastic around the screen.
The reason that's there is when you close these devices you don't wanna break the glass it's pretty smart.
But this elegant dance between these two parts come together so seamlessly in this product.
And when I say at the first read you won't find any misplaced parts in every detailed matter.
There's no rubber bumper, there's no plastic chin, there's no hinge that you can see.
It's all part of the device that flows and fades to the background.
The screen itself is 3.4 million pixels, 3.4 million pixels.
It's that exact screen that you would expect from Surface.
That high contrast, that color calibrated screen.
You know what it is.
I do it every time, I'm not gonna do it, you know what it is.
At the end of the day this is the thinnest LCD touch module ever created and put into a laptop and that's how you get this form.
That's the laptop.
