Surface Book was the Microsoft surprise last year, the first laptop made entirely by the company. It came with an attractive design and capable hardware, a sleek built with premium materials.
This year, the company has brought to market the next generation of this series of laptops that offer but will not replace the previous model, but it also brings more powerful hardware and a range drastically improved.
To achieve the desired performance, Microsoft has equipped the new Surface Book with a new base station more efficient.
While the tablet which houses the processor and most components and display are largely unchanged, the new base called “Performance Base” contains graphics chip and a larger battery and an active cooling system very efficient.
The result is an improved graphics performance twice to the 2015 Surface Book as four extra hours of autonomy, reaching 16 hours of use on a single charge.
Surface Book Performance Base is delivered with such factory with Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M graphics chip with configuration options 8 or 16 GB RAM and storage options from 256GB to 1TB SSD support.
The remaining characteristics thus remain unchanged, the same display used Pixel Sense of 13.5 “with resolution 3000 x 2000.
A small difference is the weight of the device, which is now 100 grams heavier, which is probably a consequence of more efficient battery .
