Notebook with Intel® Pentium® N5000 processor, Windows 10 Home in S mode, Office 365 Personal (one-year-license)*, 13.3" Full-HD-IPS-display, 64 GB, M.2 SSD extension

Product Overview

Ideally adjusted hardware
The Surfbook A13B with its Intel® Pentium® Silver N5000 Prozessor, 4 GB RAM and Windows 10 Home in S mode offers a great combination that ensures optimum working performance in everyday life. And with the help of the 13.3-inch Full HD IPS display, you also have everything at a glance – so you can always experience the best picture quality at home or on the move.

Windows 10 Home in S mode
The Surfbook A13B is equipped with pre-installed Windows 10 Home in S mode. The operating system offers an increased battery life, an optimized computer performance and a high level of system security, since any installed software from Micrososft was previously checked.

Office 365 Personal
Thanks to the included one-year subscription for Office 365 Personal*, you’ll enjoy all the benefits of Micrososft’s versatile software package for your Surfbook A13B. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and much more do not have to be missed on the A13B.

Stylish exterior
The silver exterior of the Surfbook A13B consists of a cool aluminium housing and clings particularly tight around the only 1240 grams lightweight notebook. The compact device dimensions and narrow design combine to create a stylish exterior that looks equally good on the home desk or in the classroom.

Optionally with even more speed
On the back of the Surfbook A13B, a small inconspicuous flap can be opened, which, however, brings a great effect. The M.2 SSD expansion slot accommodates extra-high-speed SSD modules, which further improve the performance of the device and at the same time increase storage space.


* Office 365 Personal for 12 months included, software is already pre-installed. Office activation is required within 6 months of Windows activation date. After expiration, the license must be renewed for a fee.
