Surface Book, Surface Pro 4, Lumia 950 and 950 XL and Band 2


That is Surface Book, which is advertised as ultimate laptop with all the power of laptop with dedicated GPU (dedicated video processing card). My jaw drops when I saw the screen can be detached from keyboard, which means Surface Book is also a tablet! And, the tablet needs to be light, so Microsoft keeps the dedicated GPU and secondary battery in the keyboard. Wow.. This is innovation!

But, do not expect this to be cheap:

i5 128GB 8GBRAM: USD 1499
i5 256GB 8GBRAM: USD 1699
i5 256GB 8GBRAM dGPU: USD 1,899 (This is the power of dedicated GPU)
i7 256GB 8GBRAM dGPU: USD 2,099 
i7 512GB 16GBRAM dGPU: USD 2,699 


Surface Pro 4 has more variety of price to choose for up to 1TB SSD now, but it seems similar to Surface Pro 3 when it was launched.

Sadly, Lumia 950 and 950 XL does not have enough spotlight, as the guy seems rushing the announcement of this flagship. With such a bombshell announcement of Surface Book, Microsoft should hold another event altogether of Lumia flagship.

And, yes, Band 2, this is more like an upgrade to Band 1, and I guess Microsoft will not advertise so heavily. 

But, I really hope all will be available in Singapore with interesting bundled pricing. Finger crossed.
