Microsoft just debuted the Surface Book, making MacBooks just look silly

Microsoft just dropped some bombs on the tech world this week with its annual slew of October releases. Everyone was excited to see the new toys that the pioneering company was to debut with a few anticipated smartphones, computers, virtual reality headsets. However nobody was ready for the Microsoft’s latest take on the laptop, which they named — the Surface Book with the small claim that it’s only the “fastest 13-inch laptop ever made.” Tech Insider also quirkily refers to it as “the MacBook Pro Killer.”

If that is not already a pretty audacious comment, the promo ad begins to highlight some of facets to this pretty incredible piece of design. Somewhere around the 0:59 mark it starts to feel a lot like a late night information displaying a product that has a million different uses that you want to believe, but almost can’t really believe its true.
