The new released Microsoft Surface Book is a top of the range and very powerful tablet computer with a 3000 x 2000 resolution display and 128GB or 256GB SSD storage with a SD card slot in addition to that. And it has two USB 3.0 ports that gives you fast speed to transfer movies to Microsoft Surface Book.
