This top-end Surface Book will now have battery life that lasts up to 16 hours on a charge, while also sporting new a new GPU that will offer more than two times the power you'd get on a competing MacBook, according to Microsoft.
On the inside, the new Surface Book with Performance Base sports a 6th Generation Core i7 CPU, Nvidia GTX 965M graphics. Depending on which configuration you get, you will have either 8 or 16GB of RAM and 256, 512 or 1TB of SSD storage.
Microsoft said the new Surface Book will also get a second fan to help ensure that even with more horsepower, overheating won't be an issue.
The new Surface Book is available for pre-order now, with shipments starting sometime in November.
