Microsoft has silently launched the all-new Surface Book 2, powered by 8th Gen Intel chipset. This has come a few days before the Surface Event 2019, which is scheduled to happen on the 17th of April, where the company is expected to announce next-gen Surface Laptop, Surface Book, and Surface Pro devices.
Keeping aside the upcoming launch event, let us look at the features and specifications offered by the all-new Surface Book 2, which is sort of flagship laptop from Microsoft. Here is the full review of the Surface Book 2.
Price and availability
The Microsoft Surface Book 2 with the all-new 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8350U CPU retails in the US for $1,499 and is currently available on Microsoft official website. As of now, there is no information on the availability of the all-new Surface Book 2 in India.
Do note that, the company still sells the Surface Book 2 with 7th Gen Core-i7 dual-core processor for $1299. The only difference between the newly launched model is the CPU. The all-new Surface Book 2 comes with 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8350U CPU with up to 3.6 GHz Turbo Boost frequency.
The notebook offers 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD storage. Due to the new CPU, the Surface Book 2 should provide better performance, especially with apps and games, which can take advantage of the multi-core processors.
The 8th Gen processor on the laptop should offer slightly better performance compared to the previous Surface Book 2 iteration with the 7th Gen Intel processors.
Surface Book 2 comes with 13.5-inch and a 15-inch display with touch support, offering 267 PPI. The laptop comes with either 7th or 8th Gen Intel chipset with up to 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of SSD based storage.
