Microsoft remains thoroughly committed to its devices, something the new Surface Book 2 establishes as the best platform for facilitating creativity.

Yusuf Mehdi, head of Microsoft’s Windows and Devices Groupm says that 3D, Mixed Reality and the various creative potential delivered by the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update empowers both users and businesses in all industries.

The Surface Book 2, the ultimate canvas for creativity

Even if we’re on our phones all day long, Yusuf believes that there’s no better place for creativity than the PC — and the Surface Book 2 manages to be the most powerful one ever designed by Microsoft.

It’s available in 12 and 15 inches and is twice as powerful as the MacBook due to its dual and quad-core processor technology and PixelSense display. In addition, its battery life is rated at 17 hours and comes with touchscreen capabilities that incorporate the Surface Pen and Dial.

You can pre-order the 12-inch version of the Surface Book 2 starting November 9th for $1499 and the 15-inch version for $2399.

Mixing reality with the world of AI

With Mixed Reality and 3D imagery, creativity will soon be able to change the world of work. Areas like holographic teleconferencing, medical technology, and construction will all be transformed with Mixed Reality. 3D will allow designers to design and print their creations rapidly. Mehdi believes that humans can bring their creativity and imagination to the world of AI.

The future of Windows 10 mobile features and devices

It has been confirmed that work on Windows 10 Mobile has stopped for now. This means that the possibility of a Surface Phone is gone. On the other hand, Mehdi says that Microsoft is fully committed to devices and the Surface, the Xbox and the HoloLens lines.
