Microsoft Surface Laptop unveiled with a 13.5" non-detachable touchscreen

Microsoft logoThe Surface line ventured close to laptop territory with the Surface Book, but now Microsoft made a true laptop. The Surface Laptop promises a non-detachable 13.5” PixelSense display with touch and stylus support. It's a 3:2 screen with 2,256 x 1,504px resolution (201ppi).

Curiously, the backlit keyboard is covered in Alcantara, a suede-like material. It will be available in Platinum, Burgundy, Cobalt Blue and Graphite Gold. The whole thing should weigh just 1.25kg (2.76lbs) and measure 14.5mm at its thickest point (and 9.9mm at its thinnest).

Despite these highly portable dimensions, the Laptop promises 14.5 hours of Netflix binging before its battery runs out. Surface chief Panos Panay says the new portable computer is faster than a MacBook Pro but lighter than a MacBook Air.

The Microsoft Surface Laptop will run Windows 10 S, Microsoft's education-oriented OS. Configurations start at $999 and you get a choice of Intel Core i5 or i7 processors and up to 512GB of SSD storage.

But the $999 only gets you an i5 (7200U), 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. The fully loaded model - i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD - is a whopping $2,200. A bit much for a Chromebook alternative, no?
