Microsoft’s MacBook Pro killer, the Surface Book, is now on display at several locations throughout the United States. In Southern California, the Microsoft Store locations in Cerritos and Costa Mesa have Microsoft’s latest device available for you to walk in and try out. The Surface Book is also on display in Chicago, New York City, Dallas, and even Palo Alto, California. Judging from recent reviews, Microsoft’s new device may be the ultimate laptop. According to Wired, the Surface Book redefines how PCs are made.
“In fact, it’s hard to name another high-end hybrid laptop that’s quite so enticing. That puts everyone who makes Windows laptops—known as original equipment manufacturers, in trade lingo—in a curious position: What do you do when the partner that supplies your product’s brains releases a superior body?”
Laptopmag even cuts to the chase by calling it a MacBook Pro killer.
“Really, it’s all about the speed. In fact, Microsoft claims that the Core i5 or Core i7-powered Surface Book is twice as fast as the MacBook Pro. The notebook also [employs] a PCIe SSD, which is at least twice as fast as traditional, SATA-based drives. and comes in capacities ranging from 128GB to 1TB.”
