Microsoft pumps up the Surface volume

By

Microsoft has unveiled five new Surface products, including headphones and earbuds.

Available for pre-order with deliveries starting this month, Microsoft's two new Surface models offer higher performance than their predecessors. The company has also expanded the Surface family with three new peripherals.

Surface Go 2, priced from $629 for the 64GB Pentium configuration, features a 10.5in display, improved battery life, 5MP front camera, and the Studio Mics dual-microphone system.

The high-end model with a Core M3 CPU, 128GB of storage, and wireless broadband costs $1,199 and is said to be up to 64% faster than the original Surface Go.

Surface Book 3 is Microsoft's "most powerful laptop ever," according to the company.

The Surface Book 3 range starts at $2,649 for a 13.5in model with 256GB of storage, a Core i5 processor, and Iris Plus graphics, and goes up to $4,759 for the 15in Core i7 version with 1TB of storage and an Nvidia GeForce GPU.

Depending on configuration, it delivers 50% more performance than Surface Book 2 and up to 17.5 hours of battery life.

Details of the $419.95 Surface Dock 2 are patchy at this stage. The company says it delivers faster charging, higher data transfer rates and enterprise management tools.

Microsoft also introduced the $399 over-the-ear Surface Headphones 2 with up to 20 hours of battery life and active noise cancellation, and the $319.95 Surface Earbuds with "all-day" battery life thanks to the charging case.
