It comes with 13.5-inch PixelSense display and 3:2 aspect ratio. “Thinnest ever LCD touch model inserted into a laptop,” said Panay, complete with 3.4 million pixels.
The screen is also supported by Microsoft’s Surface Pen, which means you can draw on the display as well like other Surface devices.
