With the Microsoft Surface Book i7, the top tier gets a big upgrade
If you wanted more from a Surface Book than what Microsoft ever gave you before, the comapny’s hardware chief, Panos Panay, will give it to you with the new Surface Book i7.
The new graphics chip and processor can help deliver twice as much graphic processing power than the regular top-tier Surface Book and thrice as much as the nearest 13-inch MacBook Pro. The design envelope had to be tweaked — a second fan is in the mix.
“We also put more batteries in the product,” Panay said.
Up to 16 hours of theoretical battery life, 30 percent better than before.
This top-end Surface Book i7 is $2,399 and pre-orders start today. Shipping happens within the next month.
