The laptop transforms into three different configurations: full laptop, easily detachable and creative canvas. It features an easily detachable keyboard, photo and video editing making it a mobile studio.

Microsoft has made working on your lap, the plane or at your desk easy thanks to a redesigned mechanical keyboard that is thinner, lighter and includes improved magnetic stability. The back lit keyboard gives the user easy time typing in poorly lit environments.

The business person will enjoy 12 hours of battery life with video play back, articulate sensors to keep the user aware of events and changes in environment for proper handling of the laptop.

The device comes with two full-size USB ports to assist in file transfer. Surface Book runs on the latest Windows 10 combined with the latest processor technology giving it a powerful engine for immense workforce. It has a powerful memory and expandable internal space that will assist in file storage and speedy browsing.

Even as Microsoft makes it clear it is serious about venturing into the hardware business, the PC market has been experiencing shipment decline.

According to the International Data Corporation, worldwide PC shipments totalled nearly 71.0 million units in the third quarter of 2015.. This volume represented a year-on-year decline of -10.8% -slightly worse than projections for a decline of -9.2%.”

However, according to the Data Corporation, the holiday quarter could see the Surface Book sales pick up impressively.
