If the existing top-of-the-line Surface Book and the Surface Pro models weren't cutting it for you, Microsoft has introduced more powerful new models for both. Now you can finally snag a 1TB inbuilt storage with Intel Core i7 model.
The new top-end Surface Book model features 1TB of SSD, 16GB of RAM, a dedicated GPU, and a 6th generation Intel Core i7 processor. It is priced at $3,199 (roughly Rs. 216,700). The new Surface Pro 4 model, which offers the same hardware specs aside from a discrete GPU, is priced at $2,699 (roughly Rs. 183,,000).
Both the new models are available in the United States and Canada. The Surface Book is available online-only via Microsoft Stores and other select retailers. The new Surface Pro 4 will be available in Microsoft stores and through select retailers. Microsoft has not announced if this top end model will be made available in India, where the Surface Pro 4 was launched earlier this month.
Alongside the new models of the Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book, Microsoft has also launched a new Surface Pen. It offers the same specifications as other Surface Pen models, but comes in a Gold colour option. It also includes the Surface Pen Tip Kit that helps a user to change the tip in accordance with different writing and drawing styles. It is priced at $59.99 (roughly Rs. 4,100).
The new gold Surface Pen is available in Canada, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. No details about when the new accessory will come to India.
Launched at a media event in October, the Surface Book and the Surface Pro 4 both have garnered raving reviews from the company. While Microsoft is yet to tell how many of these devices have sold so far, it noted recently that the sales are going well.
