Microsoft has merged the versatility of a tablet with the powerful performance of a laptop to create the new Surface Book laptop. Its detachable 13.5” PixelSense touch screen guarantees to dazzle you with true-to-life colours with high contrast and low glare, and works with Surface Pen to give you the fluidity and precision of a ballpoint pen.
When you want to use the device as a tablet to read, watch or shop you can simply detach it like a clipboard from the keyboard or rotate and re-attach it to focus solely on the 13.5-inch touch screen.
Use the pen
Microsoft's Surface Book comes with its Surface Pen to let you write, draw and create directly onto the screen as you would when using a pen on a piece of paper.
Sixth-Generation Intel Core Processor
Designed to handle the most demanding creative tasks without sacrificing battery life, the Surface Book has a sixth-generation Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM to let you tackle anything you throw at it. Use it to shoot videos and edit them using Premier Pro for precision and easy use.
Windows 10 Pro
The Surface Book is set up with Windows 10 Pro to give you access to all of your favourite apps and an improved navigation. Providing an instant start up, quick movement between applications, prompts for available updates and personalised experience, Windows 10 Pro is an expert at delivering the everyday with an individual touch, featuring Hello to quickly log on and Cortana to learn what is important to you and retrieves relevant updates when needed. The Pro version also lets you run Adobe Creative Cloud, Citrix, AutoCAD or Visual Studio without a hitch to let you create the designs you want.
Photos, videos and sound
Featuring a 5-megapixel front-facing HD camera and stereo microphone to make Skype calls to friends and family while you're on holiday and have video conferences with your colleagues on the other side of the world.

Full suite of connections

Bluetooth 4.0 will let you wirelessly transfer data and stream media to other Bluetooth devices without draining your battery, while 2 full size USB 3.0 ports and an ultra-high-speed SD card slot will let you hook your Surface Book up to other peripherals and storage devices.
