Surface Pro 4, Surface Book Headline Microsoft's Windows 10 Event

During a media event in New York City on Oct. 6, Microsoft executives took the wraps off the company's new Windows 10 hardware. As expected, the company showed off its new high-end Lumia 950 and 950 XL smartphones and an update to its productivity-focused tablet, the Surface Pro 4. The company also shared Windows 10 latest adoption figures. HoloLens made an appearance during a splashy real-time demo, but the augmented reality headset is still a ways off from general availability. New Xbox One bundles are hitting shelves just in time for the holiday weekend and an update that upgrades the video game and video streaming console to Windows 10 is coming next month. Band, the company's fitness-themed wearable, got a major upgrade on both the hardware and software side. There wasn't much in the way of surprises, that is until Panos Panay, Microsoft's Surface hardware lead, announced Microsoft's first-ever laptop, the Surface Book two-in-one. Featuring a 13.5-inch screen with touch and pen input, a Surface Pro-like 3:2 aspect ratio and a performance-enhancing discrete GPU option, the Surface Book has the MacBook Pro in its sights. Here are some highlights from Microsoft's Windows 10 Device Event.
