Surface Book 2 Review – Gadget of the week
Surface Book 2 Review
Microsoft Surface Book 2 simply put is the best 2-to-1 laptop. It is simply a suped-up surface book capable of faster speeds, multitasking and takes a very short time to boot. Not to mention that it’s the best drawing tablet we’ve ever tried. Microsoft really did something more with the extra space that is offered in this new Surface Book 2 – 15″ format. This Surface Book 2 review included a model with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 processor, Gen 8th Intel Core i7 CPU processor, and a USB-C port. Although esthetically similar enough to the previous model, the improvements inside make it superior, and the larger size allows more space to work and create. If you can overcome its hefty price tag, the Surface Book 2 is the strongest and most functional 2-in-1 you can get.
Why the Microsoft Surface Book 2 is so good
The most significant artistic evolution of Microsoft with Surface Book 2 was the screen size increase. The 15-inch model is new, with a biggest screen and keyboard base. (If you want a size of 13.5 inches, do not worry, it’s still available here). On the visual side, Microsoft took the original Surface Book and put the 15-inch Surface Book 2 in its brushed aluminum alloy chassis. Microsoft has worked hard to dramatically increase the power in the Surface Book 2 – 15″.
Of course, we are equally in love with the Surface Book 2 – 13″ screen. But with this Surface Book 2 – 15″ the text is so clear on the screen, as are the photos and videos.
The Surface Book 2 with a supported resolution up to 3240 x 2160 is brilliant and vivid, making it perfect for drawing, editing or relaxing and viewing videos.
With an Intel Core i7-8650U processor, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB PCIe SSD, the Surface Book 2 is very fast and works for your multitasking needs.
