Microsoft has released the Surface Book 2-in-1 PC on October 26 in seven variants of configurations, which were available for purchase directly from the official website. The lowest price was $1,499, while the highest price was $3,199 and the shipping was free. Now, Amazon is offering discounts for three of the configurations and customers will be able to save up to 25% off the initial price.

The Surface Book has a detachable keyboard that contains a secondary battery and a custom variant of Nvidia GeForce 940M GPU that’s backed by 1GB of memory. When the device is used as a tablet, it measures 312.4x 220×7.6 mm and it weights 0.73 Kg, while when adding the keyboard, it measures 312x232x23mm and it’s almost 800 grams heavier.

The device has a 13.5-inch LCD display supporting a resolution of 3000x2000pixels, on the back is found an 8MP camera with HD video recording, while the front camera that supports 5MP can be used for video calls. While the battery inside the tablet lasts up to 8 hours, the battery that was placed inside the clipboard has half of its life, but, overall, 12 hours of battery life is a big achievement.

Each Surface Book model is shipped with a pre-installed 64-bit version of Windows 10 Pro and users are able to try the Microsoft Office suite for free, for 30 days. Customers can also purchase the Surface Dock that costs $199.99 and which adds two Mini DisplayPorts, one Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 3.0 and out audio out ports to the Surface Book.
