The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 & Surface Book

Along with the new Lumias and the Microsoft Band 2, Microsoft also unveiled two new Surface devices: the Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book. The former is the successor to the highly successful Surface Pro 3 tablet. The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 features a 12.3-inch Gorilla Glass-protected display of 2,160 x 1,440 pixel resolution, similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and the Apple iPad Pro. This translates to a pixel density of 267 ppi. Moreover, the display is able to detect 1,024 levels of pressure from its stylus. Ticking inside its aluminum alloy body is an Intel Core M processor with integrated Iris Pro graphics, which would allow it to play 4K videos effortlessly. It can also have as much as 16GB RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage.

Running Windows 10 out of the box, the Surface Pro 4 comes with a 9-hour battery life. Like previous Surface devices, this new one comes with a smorgasbord of accessories, which include a docking station, type cover with back-lit keyboard and precision glass trackpad, power adapters, etc (each sold separately). It will also feature the new Surface Pen, which boasts improved precision and boasts 1-year battery life. Good news is that accessories for the Surface Pro 3 are all compatible with the new one. The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 will ship on October 26, 2015 with price starting at $899.

Up next, we have the more powerful Surface Book, which was actually a surprise from Microsoft. It is Microsoft's first ultrabook-tablet hybrid. It has an aluminum build and screams premium at every angle. Naturally, it's the hinge called dynamic fulcrum that will first catch your attention because of its odd looks. It is a mechanism that allows the Surface Book to be detached from its keyboard, effectively making it a tablet. The Microsoft Surface Book packs a 13.5-inch display of 3,000 x 2,000 pixel resolution, resulting in a pixel density of 267 ppi. Like the Surface Pro, its display is touch-sensitive and will also work with the Surface Pen. Humming inside it is a 6th Gen Intel Core series Skylake processor with integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU. When the Surface Book is attached to its keyboard, the tablet would trade its original GPU with its discrete NVIDIA GeForce GPU. There is up to 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage.

The Surface Book runs Windows 10 out of the box and comes with a built-in TRM chip for enterprise security. Its other features include an 8-MP rear camera, 5-MP front-facing camera, two microphones, and front-facing stereo speakers with Dolby audio technology. Its battery life is rated at 12 hours. The base model starts at $1,499 (Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD) and goes all the way up to $2,700 (Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, NVIDIA GPU, 512GB SSD). It will start shipping on October 26, 2015. Any takers?
