Surface Book, a laptop which will give a new impulse to e-reading

Microsoft Surface Book laptop tabletTake the best ideas from Google, Apple and HP and you get the Microsoft Surface Book. A 13.5 inch laptop which can be converted to a tablet, just like the HP Slate. Just like the Apple MacBook Pro the Surface Book has a perfect screen and a 12-hour battery (oh, and a logo on the back), and just like the Google Chromebook the Surface Book has a stylus to write and draw. It seems that Microsoft will be successful again: not the first, but improving the idea and making it more affordable and thus easier to market. The Surface Book will cost you 1,490US$, currently only in North America. Europe and the rest of the world will need to wait a bit longer, also something Microsoft learned from Apple and Google. The Surface Book will certainly find its way to professional users who will (re)discover digital reading because of the perfect screen. More information in the video on our video page or on the Microsoft website.
