Microsoft Surface Book 2 Specifications

Microsoft Surface Book 2

The Microsoft Surface Book 2 comes with the latest generation of Intel Core processors, runs professional-grade software, apps, and PC games with ease. Powerful dedicated NVIDIA GeForce graphics ensure fluid immersive experiences, while the vibrant PixelSense Display delivers stunning, lifelike visuals from virtually any angle. And with up to 17 hours more battery life and 4 times more power than before, Surface Book 2 is the ultimate powerhouse.

You can order a Surface device with a 13.5″ Display starting at $1,499 and the 15-inch screen. The larger version of the Surface Book 2 starts at an even more expensive $2,500. That nets you an Intel 8th-gen Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB solid state drive, and Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics. Our top-tier review model came with a 1TB hard drive, which bumped the price up to $3,300.
