Microsoft’s Surface hardware is starting to find its market position after a few years of struggling early on. The Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book are both thriving and pushing Microsoft to among the market leaders in the tablet/PC and 2-in-1 markets. The Surface Book is a particularly innovative piece of kit and as you can see in the video below, Microsoft certainly agrees.
The company has published a video that takes a look at the engineering behind the Surface Book and some of the most impressive aspects of its design and hardware. Microsoft did something similar back in March with an extensive blog post that discussed the design and build of the Surface Book, so this is like the condensed more entertaining version.
It is definitely worth a watch, especially as it is only six minutes long and offers an interesting look into the engineering process of one of the slickest computing products available. In the video, Jeff Stewart, Director of Program Management, Surface Devices, discusses the following aspects of the Surface Book:
Best-in-class innovations for design and performance
13.5-inch 3000 X 2000 resolution with 267PPI and 6 million pixels display
Custom Maxwell Nvidia GPU under keyboard
Pen and Inking innovations
Hinge design and its ergonomic advantages
Of course, there is plenty more to get to grips with in the video, where Stewart goes more in-depth on some of the specs and performance details.
Last month Microsoft rolled out two important updates for the Surface Book. The first tackled some known issues with the device as part of Patch Tuesday, while the second updated the Nvidia GPU, bringing more stability to the laptop.
