Microsoft Surface Book Unboxing & Firstlook

Microsoft Surface Book

Hi All!
First of all Merry Christmas and happy new year if you celebrate that. I have been a bit lazy lately not doing much website updating as I have been taking a small break from all work. 🙂

You may have noticed that articles have not been coming in as fast as they were but now I am back and ready for another year 2016! So I wish you all a good luck with this year. Now to finish the article on this Microsoft Surface Book what a great little laptop this is.
The first two amazing features of this laptop are that you can remove the screen from the keyboard and turn it into a tablet / clipboard.

See the action shot below 🙂

The screen can then be used as a tablet or clipboard.

The design has been really thought out well. Microsoft have designed a new type of hinge to work with this new type of laptop and they have called it the dynamic fulcrum hinge.
A bit of a mouthful I know, but it works really well. When the hinge folds back it moves the weight of the screen so that the keyboard has more leverage to be able to support the screen.
While its very well designed and looks cool, if I have to fault it slightly there is still some movement in the screen which you wouldn’t get from a regular laptop. However being able to remove the screen and use it like a tablet soon negates this small issue.

Its designed so well that it gives the Apple products a real run for their money. Lets talk about price. At the time of release the ultimate laptop starts at $1,499.00 USD. Not a small amount. However when you compare it to the 13 inch MacBook Pro, which doesn’t have a touch screen and doesn’t detach its screen and doesn’t have a pen. You might say that $1,499.00 seems like a bargain. I will leave that choice up to you guys.

If you are in the Market for the Surface Book you can buy them through the 123myIT Store.
