Designed for professionals who need desktop-level performance from anywhere, the Surface Book 3 is a powerhouse workstation and Surface’s most powerful laptop ever.

The original Surface Book was designed to give people the power of a desktop, the versatility of a tablet, and the freedom of a light and thin laptop in one beautifully designed device. Developers, designers and professionals rely on Surface Book for coding and compiling, workloads in Adobe and Autodesk, and for gaming with Xbox Game Pass for PC or on Steam.

The 2-in-1 laptop has received a significant performance upgrade, starting with Intel’s 10th-generation processors and Nvidia GPU options. The 15-inch model (also comes in a 13-inch) has 50% more performance than the Book 2, making it Microsoft’s most powerful laptop ever.

Features:

  • 5 hours of battery life
  • 10thGeneration Intel® Core™ processors
  • NVIDIA® GeForce GTX™ or Quadro RTX™ GPUs
  • High-DPI PixelSense Display
  • Up to 32GB of RAM
  • Fastest SSD Surface has ever shipped

It delivers incredible value in a light, mobile design, providing an excellent device for professional or personal use. Its compact design, the versatility of the touch screen, and Surface Pen allows distance learners and remote workers to stay digital.

The new version keeps the same thin, lightweight design, but now offers a host of improved features.

Surface Headphones 2 / Surface Earbuds

Surface Headphones 2 and Surface Earbuds complete the Surface experience.  With noise-cancelling features, the Surface headphone accessories help people focus wherever they are and stay connected to the people and content that matters.

Surface Headphones 2

Putting on headphones is today’s equivalent of shutting the office door to focus and connect in any setting. The Surface Headphones 2 is designed to slip comfortably over your ears and surround you with spectacular sound quality, and up to 20 hours of clear sound. The headphones come with active noise cancellation, which is adjustable through intuitive on-ear dials and tuned to either block out or amplify human voices.

Surface Earbuds

Surface earbuds provide an affordable offering in comparison to the popular Apple Air Pods. When you want to be connected without entirely shutting out the world – such as listening to music while out for a run or taking a call while making dinner – the surface earbuds are a great choice.  Featuring an ultra-comfortable and stable fit, Surface Earbuds offer intuitive touch controls so you can start a phone call or change the song without taking out your phone.

 

 

Surface Dock 2

Finally, the surface range is supported by the Surface Dock 2 and the multi-port Microsoft USB-C Travel Hub, which help organisations set up the ultimate workspace; wherever that may be.

During this time of change, Microsoft Surface has made remote working and learning more accessible. From making Microsoft Teams available to everyone to expanding the Surface family of devices to make sure every person and every organisation has the tools they need to stay connected and productive.

The new Surface Go 2, Surface Book 3, Surface Headphones 2, Surface Earbuds, Surface Dock 2 and accessories are available in select markets and will roll out to all Surface markets in the coming months.
