Microsoft finally announced the new Microsoft Surface Book 2 today, just in time for Christmas. But best of all, we also got more choice, with Microsoft launching not just a new 13.5-inch Microsoft Surface Book 2, but also a brand new 15-inch Microsoft Surface Book 2 as well, still in detachable tablet form.
Microsoft Surface Book 2 will be released on November 16 in the US, and will start taking pre-orders three weeks from now, on November 9 for $1499 and $2499 respectively.
Surface Book 2 specs looks very good so far, as thse Windows 10 flagship tablets are powered by the newest 8th gen. Intel Core processors, with GPU options of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 and 1060, a 17 hour battery life (with the detachable keyboard on), and finally a USB C port too on a Surface.
But it still has two regular USB 3.1 ports too and SD memory card readers. The total weight (tablet + keyboard) is 3.38lbs or 1533 grams for the 13.5-inch tablet, and 4.2lbs or 1905 grams for the 15-inch tablet.
The 13.5-inch resolution is 3000 x 2000, while it’s 3240 x 2160 on the 15-inch Surface Book 2. RAM options are 8GB and 16GB, while storage options are 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.
Microsoft says that the Surface Book 2’s are so powerful they can handle PC games at 60 fps at 1080p, and run professional software like Adobe, Autodesk, and Dessault flawlessly.
We will be going hands on and dive deeper into the specs around launch time.
