Surface Book now available through retail in New Zealand
Posted on 28-Jan-2016 12:41. | Tags Filed under: News.

Microsoft Corp. announced today the retail availability of Surface Book throughout New Zealand.

Customers can purchase Surface Book starting at an estimated retail price of $2,749 by visiting, or visiting retailers Noel Leeming, Harvey Norman, or JB Hi Fi. Commercial customers should talk to their authorised commercial resellers.

“Surface Book is the ultimate laptop, continuing Surface’s tradition of breaking barriers and pioneering new device categories,” said Carol Glidden, Windows & Surface Business Group Lead for Microsoft New Zealand.

“Designed for people who need maximum performance—people doing photo and video editing or engineers and architects rendering 3D models and schematics—Surface Book harnesses the power of a full desktop workstation in a sleek device that is among the fastest 13-inch laptops ever made.”

Surface Book is a powerful, high-performance laptop with incredibly accurate and responsive pen and touch support. Surface Book combines the impressive power of 6th Generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors with up to 12 hours of battery life.

The 13.5-inch optically bonded PixelSense Display delivers a high-contrast 267 dpi display with improved latency and parallax, making it not just beautiful to look at but natural and fluid to write on. The screen also detaches, so it can be used like a clipboard to sketch, take notes and benefit from Windows programs like Microsoft Edge.

An optional discrete GPU allows Surface Book to harness the full power of hardware-accelerated graphics for seamless video editing and fast rendering. And Surface Book comes with the redesigned Surface Pen, packing 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity, that lets you write, draw and mark documents with precision ink on one end and an eraser on the other.
