Microsoft just announced the all-new Surface Book at its Windows event in New York. Dubbed as the Surface Book i7, it gets that name courtesy of Intel Core i7 processors on board. Microsoft says the latest Surface Book i7 is twice as powerful compared to last year’s model.
Here’s what’s changed with the new Surface Book i7:
Microsoft claims the Surface Book i7 offers up to 30 percent more battery life, which means it can last 16 hours once fully recharged compared to last year’s model which offered 12 hours worth of juice.
The company also announced that the Surface Book i7 has up to twice the graphical prowess of the original Surface Book that debuted last year. It gets a new GPU in the form of GeForce GTX 965M, and upgrades the video memory to 2GB, making it capable of running high-end games as well.
