At its Windows 10 Hardware Press Conference held at 10am today in New York Microsoft also announced its first ever laptop, the Surface Book. It features a 13.5-inch PixelSense detachable display screen which at 267 DPI gives a super quality 6 million pixels (3000 x 2000) resolution, optically bonded, color, contrast and clarity. The touch screen display is 7.7mm thick and weighs just 1.6 pounds. The screen opens up in a dynamic fulcrum hinge and it's also easily detached turning this powerful laptop into a convenient digital clipboard. The Surface Book also features a backlit keyboard and a glass trackpad all packaged in a magnesium body.
