Microsoft is planning to release a new device which they hope will take on Apple head-on and cut into the market share they currently dominate with the MacBook line.
It is going to be called the Microsoft Surface Laptop, a new premium model which features a 13.5-in touchscreen, Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, a minimum of 128GB internal memory, 4GB of RAM, MiniDisplay port and 14.5 hours of battery life which is very impressive.
Another advantage that shoppers will notice is that unlike the MacBook Pro, the Surface Laptop will come in a choice of colours – either Burgundy, Platinum, Cobalt Blue or Graphite Gold.
For those that want to buy it in the UK, Microsoft has already revealed pricing and availability.
The entry Surface Laptop price in the UK will start from £979, although students will be able to get it for £881.10 if eligible.
Pre-Orders are live now at Microsoft’s store here, where you can also choose from a range of configurations if you are looking to expand your spec further.
Are you interested in getting one due to the high battery life compared to a MacBook Pro? Microsoft has confirmed that the Surface Pro laptop release date will arrive on 15th of June.
Let us know what you think and if you are going to be buying one at launch!
