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

Nov, 2017

Expert review by : Andy Vandervell (trustedreviews.com)

Microsoft Surface 2

 

One day Microsoft will realise this potential but this isn't that day.

Type Cover is outstanding ; Good battery life ; Very good colour, contrast and brightness ; Slick, fast and responsive

Windows RT still confusing in places ; Dreadful speakers ; Too few quality tablet apps

The final upgrade is an important one: the screen. The Surface RT had a rather disappointing 1,366 x 768 resolution, but the Surface 2 has a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution screen. This doesn’t make this a ‘retina’ screen in the popular parlance, but it’s an...

Microsoft Surface 2 review

 

The Microsoft Surface 2 is the brand's second-gen Windows 8 tablet

Kickstand & keyboard combo ; Vivid display ; Useful multitasking

Barren Windows Store ; Desktop mode ; 16:9 ratio not great on tablet

Microsoft Surface 2

 

An improvement on the original Surface, but its rivals have moved on

Decent picture quality ; Comes with Microsoft Office pre-installed

Disappointing sound quality ; App store is limited ; Can be unwieldy

Full Windows 8.1 needs to be let loose on the Surface 2 to make it a real alternative to the attractiveness of iOS and Android tablets.

Microsoft Surface 2 4G review

 

Just shy of a year ago the original Surface RT landed in Pocket-lint towers. And we were rather taken with its ambition. A tablet looking to steal the crown from laptops - a great idea. But an idea that, as we were acutely aware then, carried with it...

Great screen, Outlook now on board and works, microSD expansion, decent battery life, good prospect for business users, a step up compared to the original, Marketplace will continue to grow

Windows RT a confused experience, naming convention is odd, lacks app support of rivals, odd aspect ratio for a tablet, need to add a keyboard for best experience as virtual keys obscure view, no mobile connectivity

Surface 2 might be thinner, lighter and faster than before - but only just on all counts. And as much as those three words might read well on page, the latest Microsoft offering is, above all, a confusing prospect.

Microsoft Surface 2 review

 

Microsoft's RT tab is back with a Full HD screen and pumped up innards. But is Surface The Sequel enough to seduce you into taking the plunge?

Gorgeous 1080p screen ; Improved kickstand, excellent range of keyboards ; Tegra 4 + Windows 8.1 = usable as an ad-hoc laptop

Restricted to Windows RT apps ; Gets expensive with a Touch/Type Cover

Impressive as an ad-hoc laptop but restricted as it is to Windows RT apps, doubts quickly creep in

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 review

 

A sleek, strong and silent sequel

Competitive power level, Lovely new black color scheme, Quieter keyboard, No more Windows 10 S Mode

No Thunderbolt 3 option, Too few ports for its size

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 2 is, from top to bottom, a worthy sequel to the original device. This new model vastly improves the laptop’s power profile and, while it doesn't include tangible design changes, it ultimately achieves the most pure Windows...

Microsoft Surface 2 review

 

Windows RT remains a half-baked OS, but the Surface 2 is a decent tablet

Thin but solid build ; Two kickstand positions ; Great performance ; Microsoft Office included

1080p screen lags behind other tablets ; App selection limited ; So lack of desktop apps still a problem ; No LTE option

Surface 2 4G reviewScores Microsoft has launched its next-gen tablets, the Surface Pro 2 and this - the Windows RT-toting Surface 2, a direct replacement for the original Surface RT. The Surface 2 4G has also landed, bringing faster LTE connectivity...

Microsoft has slashed its Surface Book 2 prices

 

Extra bang for your buck

That £1,999 model, by the way, refers to the 13.5in Surface Book 2 with an i7 processor, 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. That’s currently £500 off at £1,499.
