Capable of transforming easily from a laptop to a tablet, the first Surface was a quick hit. The new iteration of the laptop-tablet hybrid features five times more power than the first model, as well as a larger screen, extended battery life, and Windows Mixed Reality support.
Microsoft’s new device boasts 8th Gen Intel Core processors for easier multi-tasking, and a new hinge connector for easier transitions from laptop to tablet and back. Users have a lot of flexibility when it comes to personalizing their devices, including a number of storage space options.
While the mid-range models boast the same 13.5-inch screen and a quad-core Intel i7 processor, the more tricked-out variants feature 15-inch screens and advanced graphics capabilities for creative professionals and gamers: a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics cards, 16 GB of RAM, and Microsoft’s new VR system.
Available for preorder November 9, every Surface Book 2 model is equipped with a 1080p touchscreen and, USB-C, SD, and USB 3 card slots. Users will also enjoy worry-free use for the longest of workdays: the SB2 is capable of up to 17 hours of battery life on a single charge.
The customization potential is reflected in the pricing spectrum; prices for the Surface Book 2 range from $1,499 to $3,299.
