Microsoft Launches Surface Book 2

Microsoft on Tuesday 17th October announced the launch of its new flagship product, the Surface Book 2 – dubbed the “most powerful Surface Book Ever”.

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, you wont want to argue why its called the most powerful. With all this power, the 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.

Surface Book 2 will be available for pre-order beginning November 9th in the United States and additional markets around the world, along with Surface Book 2 15” in the United States.
