Microsoft just introduced its first ever laptop and it's insane

Microsoft just introduced its first-ever laptop on Tuesday, called Surface Book.

It’s the fastest 13-inch laptop ever created, and it’s two times faster than Apple’s MacBook Pro, according to Microsoft.

It will be available October 26 for $US1,499. Microsoft calls it the “ultimate laptop.” We’ll be bringing specs to you shortly, but it looks pretty powerful.

Check it out.

The Microsoft Surface Book is machined out of a single piece of magnesium.
