 Surface Book 2 available today for pre-order

Surface Book 2 is available today for pre-order with delivery beginning Nov. 16. Surface Book 2 removes the barrier between the desktop and the laptop by giving mobile professionals the power of a desktop, the versatility of a tablet, and the freedom of a laptop in one beautifully designed device. With the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 and 1060 discrete graphics options, Surface Book 2 is up to five times more powerful than the original and is twice as powerful as the latest MacBook Pro. All this power and Surface Book 2 still provides all-day battery life – up to 17 hours of video playback. Surface Book 2 with the 13” weighs 3.38lbs and the 15” Surface Book 2 is 4.2lbs.
The detachable display and hinge of Surface Book 2 has been redesigned to provide a smoother, faster detach into Tablet or Studio Mode – and when you detach to sketch an idea or watch a video, the Surface Book 2 turns into the world’s thinnest and lightest 8th Gen Intel Core i7 PC. Surface Book 2 brings you a full array of ports, including USB-A, USB-C, and full-size SD card reader which makes it easy to connect other devices, accessories and memory cards without the need for a bag full of dongles.
Surface Book 2 13” is available for pre-order today in the United States and additional markets around the world, along with Surface Book 2 15” in the United States at your local Microsoft Store and Microsoft.com. Delivery will begin on Nov. 16. To learn more about Surface Book 2, please visit this blog post.
