During the event, Microsoft’s Panos Panay said the company wanted to make the device one of the most productive on the planet.

Microsoft has also added a new type cover, which is thinner and lighter. The trackpad is bigger than past versions and the keyboard now has more space between the keys. The remade type cover can also be used with the Surface Pro 3.

The device can easily log you in by using the front facing camera and Microsoft Hello. The device comes with a fingerprint scanner on the keyboard, which can also be used as a way to log in. The Surface Pro 4 has a new dock too, with four USB 3.0 ports, ethernet and two 4k display ports.

Microsoft Surprises The Crowd With a Surface Book

Microsoft now has the Surface Book, their first laptop with a 13.5-inch display, 16GB GDDR5 RAM and a battery that lasts 12 hours. Microsoft calls it the ultimate laptop but it is similar to the Surface products since it is detachable.

The crowd did not expect this one and were shocked to see Panay detach the Surface Book’s screen off its keyboard. The device comes with an NVIDIA GTX GPU and other things that, according to the company, make it not one but two times faster than the MacBook Pro. Microsoft did not provide any stats for its claim but did have Panay play Gears of War on stage from the Surface Book.

The Surface Book supports the Microsoft Surface Pen and comes with one. It also supports the Surface Pro dock.

Pre-orders start tomorrow and the laptop will be released the same day as the Surface Pro 4, October 26. The device starts at $1,499 for the 128GB/8GB and ends at $2,699 for the 512GB/16GB.
