It has been 2 years since Microsoft released their first ever laptop. The mass of people believed that the second version of Surface Book will be released by the year of 2018, but in fact, Microsoft announced its release date and it will be November 16th. With lots of upgrades like extended battery life, built-in wireless Xbox One X controller connection, compatibility with a range of Microsoft’s Mixed Reality, Adobe Creative Cloud Photography, latest NVIDIA® GeForce® GPUs and etc.
It will be released shortly after Xbox One X and is by Microsoft’s words it is “The most powerful Surface ever”. The specs and features of the Surface 2 are really outstanding and they should be because the laptop is not that cheap. Its price ranges from $1,499 to $2,500 depending on what size and processor you want.
Premium design and materials make the new Surface Book 2 thin and light enough to take anywhere without sacrificing performance. The idea behind Surface 2 is to create a perfect platform for artists to draw on. That’s why Microsoft added a so-called Surface Pen, that you could use to draw right on the laptop’s screen.
The Surface Pen* has tilt for shading and virtually no lag — just like drawing on a sheet of paper. If you use the keyboard you will be astonished by how smooth and comfortable it feels. It is full-size and your fingers literally feel like flying over it.Also, you can control it with gestures and clicks on the large, high-precision, all-glass trackpad.
