Surface Book i7/Performance Base vs. Surface Book (2015) spec shoot out!


Microsoft took the stage today to announce some new products, and one of those was an update to its flagship laptop, the Surface Book. This computer was meant to be the bigger brother of the Surface Pro 4, and this year, Microsoft took it to the next level.

It comes loaded with an i7 Intel processor and is aimed directly at professional users. Design-wise it’s mostly the same, the keyboard is recessed, a little heavier (.15 lbs), a little fatter, and small tweak to the hinge. Inside, the Surface Book was completely reimagined to add some of the features users most wanted: power and battery.

Microsoft doubled the graphics performance and added 30-percent more battery life, which will deliver up to 16 hours of usage. That, coupled with the already fantastic PixelSense touch display and detachable form factor, it looks like the Surface Book will be a beast of a computer this year.
