Microsoft Launches 13-Inch and 15-Inch Surface Book 2

While Apple plods along with its steady stream of lovably frustrating Macs, Microsoft continues to speed ahead with one innovative product after another—and we’re talking hardware, not software. Now, the U.S. giant has followed up its 2015 Surface Book with the second incarnation of its sleek hybrid laptop/tablet.

Just to prove the point, Microsoft claims the Surface Book 2 is twice as powerful as the latest MacBook Pro, and up to five times more powerful than the original model. It comes in two flavors, both boasting Intel’s latest 8th-generation Core processors: a 13.5-inch model with a 3000 x 2000 pixel display, and a new 15-inch version with a pixel count of 3240 x 2160. Of course, the displays, which are 10-point multi-touch, detach to become fully functional tablets and are compatible with the company’s Surface Pen and ingenious Surface Dial. Dedicated NVIDIA graphics cards should ensure that users can perform demanding tasks such as video editing.

Available for pre-order in the U.S. on November 9, the Surface Book 2 starts at $1,500 for the 13-inch model and a distinctly-Macbook-like price of $2,500 for the 15-inch model.
