Microsoft is launching a new version of its Surface Book laptop with more powerful performance, slightly longer battery life, and improved microphones, an update that comes just after Apple refreshed its 13-inch MacBook Pro on Monday. It launches on May 21 and starts at $1,599.

The biggest change coming to the Surface Book 3 is its processors, which are getting an upgrade to Intel’s 10th generation chips. The Surface Book 2, which was announced in 2017, runs on older 7th and 8th generation Intel chips depending on the configuration.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
