It’s kind of crazy to think that Microsoft is selling its first laptop in 2015, but here we are. It’s called the Surface Book, and it has an actual keyboard and everything.
Although the Surface Book is definitely a laptop—it has a 13.5-inch diagonal screen, and weighs up to 3.5 pounds—the keyboard detaches and it becomes a touchscreen tablet.
The Surface Book is both beautiful and powerful: The screen has six million pixels, the computer runs the latest generation Intel Core processors and boasts a 12-hour battery. According to Microsoft, it’s two times faster than the MacBook Pro. With a starting price of $1,499, the laptop isn’t cheap—but those features are certainly enough to justify that price point.
The tablet portion weighs 1.6 pounds, and is connected with an intense but cool-looking hinge situation. This means the computer screen can actually do a backflip, and lie face-up on the keyboard (if you so choose).
The Surface Book is available for pre-order starting Wednesday.
