Check out the new Microsoft Surface line up for yourself

Be there October 15th and get your hands on the new Surfaces

I might be a well-acknowledged Apple fan boy, but, man, even I have to say the new Surface 4 and Surface Book look pretty darn amazing. If you’re dying to play with these killer new devices, you don’t have to wait until they hit the stores, you can attend a special lunch with Microsoft in Downtown Vancouver on October 15th and see them in person.

There are only a few spaces for this exclusive event that we’re able to share with you. You need to register now to reserve your spot.

The event takes place at the Marriott Pinnacle Downtown from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM and co-presented between Microsoft and Intel (What do you think powers these devices? Magic and fairy dust?) and sure to be fun.

Surface product manager James Nicholson will be doing the demo and presentations of the Surface, with plenty of time to get a feel for the devices.

Which has your attention?

I’m a big believer thin, light devices that are easy to tote…and enough oomph so you can connect a display (or two) for serious work. For the better part of a year I carried an iPad with a keyboard and that did just fine for me. When I switched to a MacBook Air…less need for the iPad, and I really loved a full day on battery power.

If I had to pick…while the Surface Pro 4 is cool (and there are a few in the office here), I think the Surface Book would be my choice for a day-to-day machine. There’s power, a screen that detaches, and a full keyboard. I love to sketch and doodle me ideas and being able to do that right on my “regular” laptop, is really appealing.

This is your chance to check them out

If you register for the event you have a chance to check out the Surface Pro 4 almost a week before it hits the stores and a month before the Surface Book is available.

If want to see what the future of computing is going to look like, you should be there on the 15th.
