#Microsoft #SurfaceBook2 – Microsoft Surface Book 2 now released : The tech giant from Washington’s City of Redmond has unleashed the so-called ultimate laptop back in 2015. Today, Microsoft intends to improve its already promising product with the arrival of the Surface Book 2.
While the release date is yet to be announced, a wave of anticipation is already building up. With the Redstone 2 update coming in on October 26, it highly likely that an appealing device comes with the package.
Specifications for the Surface 2 will most probably begin with a more powerful Intel Kaby Lake processor. Although the screen size may be similar to the 13.5-frame of the previous one, display is set at 3840 x 2160p. Considering that Intel’s hardware architecture offer better graphics, enhanced features will definitely include the 4K video playback and 3D support.
More importantly, the Surface Book 2 will be introducing a new hinge design that will detach the keyboard from the screen regardless if the unit is on or off. This will be a huge revision to the primary device.
With the Kaby Lake chip having a 95-watt thermal envelope, the machine performance will be extensive. Add to that the high resolution and the efficiency will definitely need outright sustainability. This is where the essential questions about battery come in.
Previously, the Surface Book 2-in-1 offers a 4-hour power support for the clipboard and another eight for the base. Considering that 4k streaming capability is in the new Book 2, battery life will certainly be short-lived.
