It is highly likely that the same features will be experienced in the upcoming laptop. Moreover, the new laptop is expected to provide consumers with a 16-hour battery life, 13.5-inch PixelSense display, full-sized SD card reader, Mini Display port, USB 3.0 ports, and headphone jack.

Reports are hinting that the new device will come with a detachable keyboard since the Surface Book laptop is closely similar to a tablet rather than a conventional laptop. Also, the new model is believed to include a rechargeable Surface Pen and a touch screen display very similar to the Surface Pro laptops.
Rumors suggest that the incoming laptop will be more powerful than its predecessors and even better than Apple’s MacBook Pro.

However, the ultimate comparison as to the their performance and efficiency will greatly depend on consumer feedback.
