Microsoft has just announced its latest lineup for its Surface series, bringing welcome upgrades to a range of familiar products, as well as a new pair of earbuds for those looking to go wireless.

Spearheading the range is the all-new Surface Book 3, claimed by the tech giant as the most powerful laptop it has every produced. Now upgraded with 10th Generaton Intel Core processors and Nvidia Geforce GTX or Quadro RTX GPUs, as well as up to 32GB of RAM and the fastest SSD ever built into the notebook, Microsoft says that this third iteration of the Surface Book will provide 50 percent more performance than its predecessor and up to 17.5 hours of battery life.

Next up is the Surface Go 2, retaining the same ultra-thin and lightweight design of the debut model but now coming in a larger 10.5-inch PixelSense display. With an 8th Generation Intel Core M processor, the device is said to perform a whopping 64 percent faster than before. It’s also equipped with the brand’s dual-microphone Studio Mics, a 5MP front-faing camera, and a new Camera app for the rear-facing camera that can scan documents or whiteboards for quick note taking.

Rounding out the collection are two audio options for those on the go. First up is the Surface Headphones 2, which have been upgraded with 13 levels of ambient noise control, adjustable through convenient on-ear dials. Battery life now comes in at 20 hours, and a re-designed rotatable ear cup provides for more comfort. Finally we have the debut of the Surface Earbuds, a competitor to Apple’s AirPods and Google’s Pixel Buds. Similar to the other two, Microsoft’s version also provides touch controls and a wireless charging case, but with an added integration with Microsoft 365 with allows you to dictate Word, Outlook, or PowerPoint.

For those interested, the new Surface devices will be available May 12, except for the Surface Book 3, which will arrive May 21. Head over to Microsoft’s website to learn more now.
