Microsoft made everyone fall in love when they presented the Surface Book. Soon came the Book 2, which was a greater version than the original, becoming one of the best 2-in-1 laptops which ran Windows 10. Now that we know that the Surface Book 3 is coming, we can hardly wait to see what has evolved and what is new.
What we know
The Surface Book 3 will be a 2-in-1 laptop as well. It will be officially launched sometime next year – 2019 -, between September and November. About the price, we couldn’t find out exactly but you should expect it to cost as much – if not more – than what the Book 2 is selling for. Right now, the 13.5 inch Surface Book 2 is selling for $1,119 and the 15 inch version costs about $2,499.
What do we want to see?
First, Microsoft has to fill those 15 inches of space with something necessary. An expanded keyboard, a number pad, speakers with deep bass, anything can be used to make sure there is no wasted space.
Then, the Book 2 is using the Surface connector which is flexible enough, although we would like to see Microsoft include the Thunderbolt 3 via USB-C into their 3rd model. It allows for a faster file transfer and it plays as a hub for all your peripherals.
Next, battery management has to up its game. Although Microsoft told us that this product isn’t meant for gaming necessarily, when you deliver it with a built-in Xbox controller receiver you have to make sure it doesn’t run out of power too quickly.
In terms of display, we would like that the Surface Book 3 would come with 4K media assets, mainly because it is surely becoming the norm. Finally, for that price, Microsoft should go out of its way and include all the necessary accessories in the package, like the Surface Dial with the Surface Pen.
