Microsoft has quietly released two new, and more powerful, versions of the Surface Book and Surface Pro.
The old high-end Book and Pro models have been relegated to second place, after Microsoft added a new 1TB (1,000GB) SSD, an updated sixth generation Intel Core i7 processor, and 16GB of RAM option.
An equivalent MacBook Pro model — with a 1TB SSD, the same CPU, and 16GB of RAM — costs $2,699 (£1,800).
Both Surface models have long battery lives and are light, making them easy to transport. Apple has previously been the king of the powerful yet light ultra-portable market, but it seems Microsoft wants some of the pie.
