Surface Book 2 reveal gets its own video, watch it here

While we knew everything there was to know well in advance of the official announcements of all the hot new high-end phones around, and even Microsoft spilled the beans on the fifth-gen Surface Pro a few days ahead of its formal debut, the Surface Book 2 just came out of nowhere.

That's a bold claim, but one that's well backed up by numbers.

Surface Book 2 is powered by 8th gen Intel Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 and 1060 discrete graphics options. In fact, Microsoft claims that the new Surface Book is four times more powerful than its predecessor.

Microsoft began its war against Apple's MacBook Pro two years ago with the release of the Surface Book, an intriguing 13-inch 2-in-1 with a powerful base and detachable display that doubled as a tablet.

The new Surface Book 2 will start at $1,499.

The laptop can be used in four different modes: standard laptop mode, tablet mode (when the keyboard is removed), studio mode (when the keyboard is folded back), and view mode (when the laptop serves as a base for the screen).

Trump joked that Pence wants to "hang" every gay person
The legal scholar had said that, if the Supreme Court did so, many states would likely legalize abortion on their own. The report highlighted fears LGBTQ advocates have raised about Pence.

The 15-inch Surface Book 2 display features a 3240 x 2160 resolution and 260 PPI.

While this device does have a USB-C port and it can charge over that connection, Microsoft is still using the Surface Connect port for providing power.

Microsoft says its new hardware is powerful enough to "fuel the next wave of computing across mixed reality, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and immersive gaming".

What about portability? Surface Book 2 comes in both 13-inch and 15-inch sizes which weigh 3.38-pounds and 4.2-pounds, respectively.

This is a real shame, particularly as the USB-C port has replaced the old Surface Book's Mini DisplayPort. For more information and specifications jump over to the official Microsoft website by following the link below.

At first glance, the Surface Book 2 and the current lineup of MacBook Pro are very similar, underscoring the fact that Microsoft is not going for the entire laptop market with its two new Surface Book laptops.

Microsoft surprised us with its Surface Book 2 this morning. The 13.5-inch weighs in at close to 3.5 to 4 pounds and the 15-inch at 4.2 pounds.

That's not the only benefit for creative professionals, as the Surface Book 2 looks set to continue the Surface range's reputation for superb displays.

The hinges are created to increase the horizontal depth of the base of the laptop.

It's also rolling out an updated 13.5-inch model starting at $1,499.

Surface Book 2 models will become available to pre-order on November 9th, with the first units shipping on November 16th. The 15-inch version will have almost seven million pixels - 45 percent more than a MacBook Pro.
