Microsoft on 5 reasons you’ll love Surface Book 2
Starting today, you can get your hands on the most powerful Surface ever, Surface Book 2. We built this Surface for people who need the performance and graphics processing power to work, create, and game from anywhere. Now anyone who needs desktop-class power, from designers, developers, and engineers to scientists, artists, and gamers can have the freedom and flexibility of a laptop and tablet. Whether you choose the 13-inch or the 15-inch (US only), here are 5 reasons to love the new Surface Book 2.
- It’s really powerful – Surface Book 2 is the most powerful Surface ever. It has four times the processing power and more than five times the graphics performance of the original Surface Book.

- It has amazing battery life – Surface Book 2 goes where you go and keeps up with up to 17 hours of battery life2 (or up to 5 hours on the detached tablet). That’s up to 70% longer than a MacBook Pro 13-inch or 15-inch. With the power slider in Windows 10 (click on the battery icon) you can optimize either for peak performance or longer battery life. And, if you don’t have your Surface power cord, you now have the option to charge via USB-C using a compatible charger.
