Merging the versatility of a tablet with the powerful performance of a high-end laptop, Microsoft has created the stylish and highly portable Surface Book 2. Its detachable 13.5” PixelSense, 10-point, multi-touch and ink, capacitive screen guarantees to dazzle you with true-to-life colours with high contrast and low glare. Thanks to the muscle of an eighth-generation Intel Core i7 processor and a 256GB solid state drive (SSD), you have a cutting edge, technological powerhouse, that’s left the complacent competition far behind.
Ready for anything
Five times more powerful than the original Surface Book, this beautiful beast is twice as powerful as the latest MacBook Pro (Q4 2017). Don’t worry about the usual sacrifice of premium power meaning sub-par battery life – the Surface Book 2 can provide you with up to 17 hours of video playback.
When you want to use the device as a tablet to read, watch or shop you can simply detach it like a clipboard from the keyboard or rotate and re-attach it to focus solely on the 13.5-inch touch screen.
Eighth-Generation Intel Core Processor
Designed to handle the most demanding creative tasks without sacrificing battery life, the Surface Book 2 has an eighth-generation Intel Quad-Core i7 processor that’s ready to tackle anything you throw at it. Use it to shoot videos and edit them using Premier Pro for precision and easy use.
Windows 10 Pro
The Surface Book 2 is set up with Windows 10 Pro Creators Update 64-bit to give you access to all of your favourite apps and an improved navigation. Providing an instant start up, quick movement between applications, prompts for available updates and personalised experience, Windows 10 Pro is an expert at delivering the everyday with an individual touch, featuring Hello to quickly log on and Cortana to learn what is important to you and retrieves relevant updates when needed. The Pro version also lets you run Adobe Creative Cloud, Citrix, AutoCAD or Visual Studio without a hitch to let you create the designs you want.
Photos, videos and sound
Featuring a 5-megapixel front-facing HD camera, dual microphones and front-facing stereo speakers with Dolby Audio Premium to make Skype calls to friends and family while you're on holiday and have video conferences with your colleagues on the other side of the world. The 8-megapixel autofocus rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video recording to capture all your magic moments.
Full suite of connections
The Surface Book 2 features the latest technology to help you connect with the rest of your technology. Built-in Wi-Fi that’s compatible with super fast 'ac’ routers will let you hook up to your home network and browse the internet at your leisure. Bluetooth 4.1 will let you wirelessly transfer data and stream media to other Bluetooth devices without draining your battery. Additionally, there’s 1 USB Type-C and 2 full size USB 3.0 ports, as well as an ultra-high-speed SD card slot will let you hook your Surface Book 2 up to other peripherals and storage devices.
