Microsoft also released Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15204, which includes a new privacy page that allows users to select the data collection settings during the setup process. Adding tabs will give Windows users another tool in their toolbox for arranging their workspaces.

The design of the current Microsoft Surface Book is very cool and was meant to be that way specifically to compete against the MacBook Pro.
