Introducing Surface Book 2, the most powerful Surface Book ever

Microsoft Surface Book 2

Surface Book 2 removes the barrier between the desktop and the laptop by giving mobile professionals the power of a desktop, the versatility of a tablet, and the freedom of a light and thin laptop in one beautifully designed device.

Whether you’re a developer, a digital artist, a designer, or an accountant, you can bring your ideas to life anywhere, because Surface Book 2 is a portable powerhouse.

We made no compromises building the most powerful Surface laptop ever. When the team talks about Surface Book 2 they call it Beauty and the Beast. Gorgeous design meets unstoppable power in this laptop.

With the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 and 1060 discrete graphics options, Surface Book 2 is up to five times more powerful than the original and is twice as powerful as the latest MacBook Pro. All this power and Surface Book 2 still provides all-day battery life – up to 17 hours of video playback. That’s 70% more than the latest MacBook Pro.

Microsoft’s new Surface Precision Mouse adds the extra buttons you’ve always wanted

Microsoft’s existing Surface Mouse is by all accounts excellent, but if you’re someone who prefers more functionality from your mouse than just a left click, right click, and a scroll wheel, you’ve been out of luck with the company’s Surface-branded gear.

The company’s newly announced Surface Precision Mouse should help fill that gap with a device that looks to marry the simple comfort of the original Surface Mouse with the more advanced customization of something like Logitech’s MX Master S2.

Review: Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) – Laptop

There was no shortage of question marks when Microsoft announced plans to launch its own line of Surface PCs, but credit where it’s due, in the space of five years, Surface has become a benchmark for others in the industry.

Surface Laptop is widely regarded as one of the best laptops on the market, Surface Studio managed to rekindle our interest in the all-in-one desktop, Surface Book is arguably my personal favorite, and for maximum versatility the Surface Pro still holds plenty of appeal.

This Surface laptop concept would force you to ditch your Macbook

We don’t post too many concepts these days, in part because there is no point in posting Windows Phone concept designs anymore and because we did not think there is much you can do to make a laptop more exciting.

Industrial designer Emad Rahimi has however proven us wrong on the second point with his Surface Vision concept design, which can be seen in full above. He envisions a 7 mm flexible device which is all screen, with virtual control surfaces and no buttons or physical keys.

Microsoft Bet on Workplace PCs is Slowly Paying Off

“Since jumping into the hardware market with its Surface line, Microsoft has had success making inroads into the tablet and 2-in-1 market,” Peter Tsai, senior technology analyst at Spiceworks, told eWEEK. “Many IT pros praised the hardware’s sleek design, powerful specs in a highly-portable package, and ability to run Windows, which allows employees to be productive while giving IT departments management flexibility.”

The Surface Pro, for example, offers corporate IT buyers a blend of premium packaging and powerful processors. Add long-lasting battery life to the equation and business travelers can legitimately get work done on a cross-country or trans-Atlantic flight.
