Microsoft’s father of the Surface brand, Panos Panay, offered a sneak peek at Microsoft’s new flagship devices, featuring 13.5-inch and 15-inch models, and comparing them directly to Apples’s MacBook Pro, 13 and 15-inch models.

The top-of-the-line 15-inch Surface model with an 8th-generation Intel Kaby Lake Core i7 processor and a discrete Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU is five times more powerful than its predecessor. The 13.5-inch Surface model has a slightly less powerful GTX 1050 GPU and also offers a version without discrete GPU.

The Surface Book 2 display detaches for use as a tablet with one battery in the display and one battery in the base, which Microsoft claims features 17 hours of battery life.

The Surface Book 2 devices start at $1,499 and progress up to nearly $3,300 for a fully outfitted 15-inch device.
