Surface Book gets updated with better graphics, battery life and much more

On stage at its Windows 10 Event, Microsoft announced an updated version of the Surface Book that includes drastically increased battery life, graphics performance, and much more.

In order to serve up even more performance for everyone from gamers to engineers, Microsoft says the new Surface Book packs two times the original's graphics performance and 30% more battery. While the new Surface Book looks the same as the original, it contains even more battery cells for up to 16 hours of battery life.

Full specs aren't yet available, but Microsoft says the new Surface Book will be available for pre-order starting today at $2,399 ahead of a November launch.
