Microsoft CPO and Surface father Panos Panay has announced his latest babies: the Surface Go 2 and Surface Book 3 laptops. The former is a great option for users who are looking for something portable and light, while the latter is ideal for professionals who require desktop-level performance in a small package.

Panay also introduced the Surface Headphones 2 and Surface Earbuds for music lovers who are committed to the brand. The earbuds are a brand-new addition that flaunts touch controls, all-day battery life, and what Microsoft is calling “Omnisonic” sound.
