Microsoft Surface Book 2 hands-on review: We try out Microsoft's latest multimedia laptops

Microsoft Surface Book 2 (13in) review


A hybrid heavyweight that's all about getting the job done

Massive power & performance ; Gorgeous screen ; Seriously flexible device for work and play

Majorly expensive ; Overkill for a lot of people

A productivity powerhouse that’s flexible and portable, but the Surface Book 2 carries a hefty price premium

Microsoft Surface Book 2 (15-inch) review


The best 2-in-1 laptop yet is just a bigger Surface Book – but that's no bad thing

Crazy long battery life ; Massively powerful ; Lightweight yet large tablet ; Excellent cooling

No up-firing base speakers ; Small trackpad ; Very pricey ; No Surface Pen included

As it turns out, the best 2-in-1 laptop to date is just a bigger Surface Book – one that can play the latest PC games and last for a helluva long time to boot. Not to mention that this is the best tablet for drawing that we’ve tested yet, too. We just...

Microsoft Surface Book 2 (13.5-inch) review


The smaller version of the 2-in-1 laptop is just as good

Very good battery life ; Powerful ; Feels great to use as a tablet ; Fanless design

Very expensive ; Not as powerful as 15-inch model ; No Surface Pen included

Like its larger sibling, the Microsoft Surface Book 2 (13.5-inch) is an excellent device, and one of the most powerful 2-in-1 devices we've tested. It has a premium design, excellent features and is a great showcase for Windows 10 - though it comes at...

Microsoft Surface Book 2 15in review: Expensive hybrid brilliance


Microsoft's 15in Surface Book 2 is a mightily expensive laptop hybrid, but is the bigger screen worth the added price?

The fastest laptop hybrid yet ; Impeccable colour-accurate screen ; Long-lasting battery life

Very expensive ; SSD performance isn't the best

With Dell’s XPS 15 2-in-1 on the horizon, promising similar flexibility and (inevitably) a sleeker, lighter design, the Surface Book 2’s days could be numbered before it gets going. It’s just far too niche.

Microsoft's Surface Book 2 is bigger, better sequel


Microsoft's Surface Book 2 adds new CPUs, gamer-ready graphics and a bigger 15-inch screen option.

The new Surface Book 2 adds a long list of worthy upgrades, from new CPUs and gamer-ready graphics cards to a bigger 15-inch version. Battery life and performance are both excellent.

The two-in-one design still feels awkward at times, and for some users, the detachable screen may be superfluous. The most interesting new components are only available in very expensive configurations.

The Surface Book 2 is a satisfying sequel, but like many sequels, it may be trying to broadly serve too many audiences.

Microsoft Surface Book 2 15in


What a surprise: the most expensive Microsoft Surface is the best one. But do you need to spend over £2,000 on the 15in Surface Book 2? Find out in our full review

Microsoft continues to show off what it can do in the hardware game with the impressive Surface Book 2 which has 8th-gen Intel processors and Nvidia graphics. It's now available from a lower price of £1,149.

Microsoft Surface Book 2 review


A powerful and flexible alternative to the MacBook Pro that's available in two sizes – 13.5 and 15-inch.

Great screen ; Supreme power ; Excellent keyboard ; Tablet/sketchpad works brilliantly

Heavy compared to rivals ; Rather expensive ; Surface Pen costs extra

Still an astounding screen and unique design, the Surface Book 2 is a winner in every respect – providing you want a tablet as well as a laptop and providing you’re happy using Windows instead of macOS.
