Microsoft Surface Precision Mouse Launching Next Month For $99

Despite the power increase, the Surface Book 2 still has "all-day" battery life that lets you watch up to 17 hours of video before needing to recharge - this is 70% more battery life than the new MacBook Pro, Microsoft says.

The Surface Book 2 [pictured above] boasts up to five times the graphics performance of the original version of the laptop, released two years ago.

The entry-level 13.5 inch Surface Book 2 has a dual-core seventh-generation Intel Kay Lake Core i5-7300U processor with built-in graphics acceleration; a minor upgrade over its predecessor.

Microsoft hasn't introduced any new design with the Surface Book 2, it is still the same original Surface Book but Microsoft has improved the design and it looks much better than ever before. As for the price, the 13-inch version will start at $1,499 and go up to $2,999 for the highest end configuration.

Perhaps motivated by ridiculous rumors of the Surface lineup's imminent death, Microsoft chose to pull the trigger and introduce not one, but two massively upgraded 2-in-1 PCs. The 15-inch model's $2,499 base price may seem relatively steep, but that's only $100 more than the 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro, for a 2-in-1 with more powerful graphics.

Both of these machines claimed to have 17-hours battery life. It's larger, but shares the same proportions as the 13.5-inch model, and uses the same overall design cues as previous Surface Books, including the mirror finish on the square Windows logo on its lid. The high-end variant comes with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 6GB graphics memory.

The magnets that bind the next-generation Surface pens to the devices are a lot stronger.

The new operating system, which rolls-out to Windows 10 machines today, includes the ability to run Virtual Reality (VR) video games from Stream and the Microsoft Store, as well as a slew of other experiences. The 13-inch and 15-inch PixelSense displays can be customized up to 267 pixels per inch, while the RAM can range up to 16GB.

Microsoft surprised us with its Surface Book 2 this morning. The 15-inch touchscreen offers a resolution of 3240 x 2160 and will also support Microsoft's Mixed Reality endeavors.

It packs 16GB of RAM and comes in three storage options - 256GB, 512GB and 1TB SSD. Over the past few years, the company has transformed the Surface line from boutique proof of concept to one of the more innovative and forward-looking PC brands on the market. Shipping begins on the 16 of November.

Just like with other Surface-related Microsoft statements that turned out to be somewhat misleading, you should take this one with a grain of salt, because not all Surface Book 2 models are created equal.

It measures 12.3 x 9.14 x 0.9 inches and weighs at 1.6 kg.
