Expert review by (t3.com)

Surface Book 2 review: is this wonderful 13.5-inch laptop the best you can get?

 

The screen is astounding; the design is fantastic and it's the best Windows tablet, too

Power and performance ; Versatility ; The best Windows 10 tablet

Surface Pen not included ; Heavier than many ultraportables

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 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.

We explain the differences between the Surface Book 2 and Surface Laptop 2 to help you decide which one is right for you.

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.

Microsoft Surface Book 2 review: 15-inch model now available in the UK

 

Powerful, versatile and portable – the Microsoft Surface Book 2 is one very impressive laptop

Despite these slight niggles, there’s no denying the Microsoft Surface Book 2 has unique appeal. It’s a laptop that can be a tablet, a graphics pad and notepad, a workstation, portable workhorse and games console all in one compact package, and there’s...
