Microsoft’s Surface Book 2 is now available to pre-order in two sizes the 13.5-inch and 15-inch.
The Surface Book 2 laptop with a detachable screen was incredible of a surprise when it was announced in October, complete with gaming-class graphics and – after all – a USB-C port. All feature Intel’s latest 8th Gen U-series processors – which knock the core count from two to four – but the 15-inch model runs at a slightly faster clock.
The Surface Book 2 smaller model uses an Nvidia 1050, which should be sufficient for playing modern titles at medium level settings, while the 15-inch model uses an Nvidia 1060 which should handle the most recent games at high level settings at 1080p. Better yet, both laptops are rated the most durable for 17 hours of battery life. Microsoft measures using video playback – which is a really a dreadful for measuring real-world battery life – but even half that number would be solid in view of the specifications.
Unfortunately, you’ll be ablaze a hole in your wallet buying one of them. The system configurations with dedicated graphics start at $1,999 for the 13.5-inch (8GB RAM, 256GB) and $2,499 for the 15-inch (16GB/256GB). Performance and visualize features come at a price is slightly higher. There’s also a sole 13.5-inch laptop configuration with integrated graphics and a 7th-gen (dual-core) i5 processor (256GB Data storage and 8GB of RAM), which will set you back at $1,499. This model is actually finless and lighter, so it’s something to consider, if you don’t care about graphics presentation, but you force as well just get a Surface Laptop.
Deliveries of the latest Surface Book 2 start arriving on November 16. For more information on the Surface Book 2, check it out our first look of Microsoft Surface Book 2 here, and stay tuned for our full review.
My oldest son wants this for Christmas so we might be picking it up. The reviews Ive seen have been pretty good so far.
Microsoft’s Surface Book 2 sounds like an awesome device. I love the two different sizes, which should fit most needs!
I’d love to get one of these for travel. I’m not sure what size I would need but I think for travel, the smaller the better would be a good idea.
