As you can see the “Ultimate Laptop” packs everything you can wish for, and if you’re wondering if you could play your games on this beauty, the answer is yes (we could see a Gears Of War demo on stage the launch day, and it seems to run smoothly).

And the added Surface Pen will let you work AutoCAD with ease.

Separating the screen of the dock, you will have a powerful Intel Graphics chip to handle the screen “PixelSense” technology and enough battery to run for 3 hour, although the new rotational hinge will let you use the laptop in almost any position you want.
