Microsoft has released Surface Pro 4 – its first ever laptop
On the 6th of October, Microsoft introduced several new products at its hardware event in New York City: two new Lumia smartphones running Windows 10, a new fitness-focused wearable called Microsoft Band 2, but the true star of the show was Surface Pro 4 tablet.
“With Windows 10 and these new Microsoft devices, you are at the center of magical new experiences,” says Satya Nadella, chief executive officer of Microsoft. “We’re moving people from needing to choosing to loving Windows, and these devices promise to fuel even more enthusiasm and opportunity for the entire Windows ecosystem.”
Surface Pro 4 is equipped with a detachable keyboard, a kickstand, and 12 hours of battery life. At only 8.4 mm thin, it features a stunning 12.3-inch PixelSense Display and 6th Generation Intel® Core™ m, Core™ i5, and Core™ i7 processors. The new laptop is not only 30 percent more powerful than Surface Pro 3 but also quieter, runs cooler, and is even more efficient.
What is more, the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Type Cover features a redesigned mechanical keyboard with optimal key spacing for fast typing, and a new Microsoft Surface Pen that packs 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity.
The new Microsoft’s laptop is available in various models and starts at £749/$899. It can be preordered in select markets October 7, then for purchase in Canada and the USA on October 26, with additional markets to follow soon.
