When Microsoft unveiled the Surface Book a few weeks ago, the company mentioned that there will be a 1TB variant of the device; that’s 1TB of SSD storage. Not surprisingly, such a high capacity SSD will not come cheap, and Microsoft has revealed how much it will cost: a cool US$3,199, which is about RM13,500.
Needless to say, that is a lot of money to fork out. Other than a 1TB of SSD storage, the top-of-the-line Surface Book will also come with a sixth generation Intel Core i7 processor paired with 16GB of RAM, and a dedicated custom NVIDIA GPU. On the other hand, the 512GB variant has the same amount of RAM and GPU for US$500 (around RM2,110) less.
While potential customers will have to pay a premium to get the highest-end Surface Book, there’s no denying that Microsoft’s first-ever laptop is a good one. It features a 13.5-inch 3000 x 2000 resolution touch display, up to 12 hours of battery life, and a removable keyboard, which means the Surface Book can be used as a tablet.
The Microsoft Surface Book is currently available for pre-order in the US, and it is expected to ship in seven to eight weeks’ time. No word yet on its availability in Malaysia.
