With the announcement and presentation in mid-October of the Surface Book 2, one of the great mysteries that kept in Microsoft for the final stretch of this year was unveiled. Not in vain, there was a desire to know the aspect and leave doubts about this model, since at the same time many expected to see a Surface Pro with LTE coming in parallel (we saw it later).
The weeks have been happening since its presentation and today, November 9 and fulfilling what was announced in the presentation, we can already book the Surface Book 2, which will go on sale officially on November 16, yes, only in the United States
A device that we remember comes in two sizes (13 and 15 inches) with different specifications depending on the chosen one. With the Surface Book 2, Microsoft wants to launch the most powerful notebook on the market, with enough capacity to work with artificial intelligence, machine learning, and mixed reality.
With an 8th generation Intel Core i7, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 or 1060 graphics and 17 hours of autonomy playing video, the new Surface Book 2 not only leaves behind the first generation but also stands up to the latest MacBook Pro.
There are differences in screen size, processor, and GPU, as well as in the RAM with which we can count, but at the same time, they share specifications. Thus they offer up to 17 hours of autonomy reproducing video, Bluetooth 4.1, 2 USB-A connections and a USB-C, 5 megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras, support for Windows Hello or the backlit 1.55 mm keyboard.
The Surface Book is compatible, as expected, with the Surface Pen and the Surface Dial and in software, it integrates seamlessly with Office or applications to work with 3D content. Likewise and thinking about those looking for the most playful aspect, the Microsoft Surface Book 2 allows you to get the most out of games and graphic editing software, being able to play games without problems in 1080p at 60 fps or work with the Adobe Creative Cloud suite.
The Surface Book 2 can now be booked at the Microsoft Store in the United States at a starting price of $ 1,499 on the 12.5-inch model while the 15-inch model will arrive for $ 2,499. We do not know when it will go to other markets, so if you want it, there is no choice but to pull the import.
