Microsoft Surface Book 2 Specs and Features
The unveiling of Surface Book i7 back in October has made fans disappointed because they expected Microsoft to launch the Surface Book 2. According to The Bit Bag, though the device is well-equipped with notable features and specs, it didn't escape from the negative feedback of the netizens.
For this reason, Surface Book i7 did not surpass the performance of the newly launched Apple MacBook Pro 2016, which is built with impeccable features and specs as well. However, Microsoft is rumored to be working on its Surface Book 2 to rival and eventually beat the performance of the Cupertino-based tech firm's portable machine.
Surface Book 2 is expected to sport high-end specs and never-before-seen features. One of the rumored features includes support for magnetic Surface Pen, which has turned into a rechargeable one that comes with a small dock, Tech Radar reported.
On the other hand, Surface Book 2 specs include Intel Kabylake chipsets for better graphics, higher resolution and faster performance. Intel Kabylake processors features 14nm chips that offer support for USB 3.1 Type-C, Thunderbolt 3 and higher resolution of 4K in a 13.5-inch screen size.
Accordingly, the delayed release of the Surface Book 2 is due to the waiting time Microsoft gave for Intel to launch their latest chipset. Furthermore, Microsoft is also said to capitalize on Surface Book 2 in their earnest desire to beat and surpass the performance of Apple MacBook Pro 2016.
Microsoft Surface Book 2 Release Date
Microsoft is expected to launch the Surface Book 2 in fall of 2017. The upcoming 2017 flagship laptop is said to address the issues on Dynamic Fulcrum Hinge from its predecessor Surface Book.
