What Is A Microsoft Surface Book?

The Surface Book is a Windows 10 convertible laptop designed and produced by Microsoft. Unveiled on October 6, 2015, it is part of the Microsoft Surface family of devices. The Surface Book is distinguished primarily by the design of its keyboard dock, which features a “dynamic fulcrum hinge” that expands as it is folded open, as well as a secondary battery and GPU that are used while docked.
