      #49921 - 10/17/17 01:54 PM

Microsoft today announced the Surface Book 2 with Intel 8th gen CPUs, NVIDIA GTX 1050 and 1060 graphics. The company sees this new machine as a strong competitor to Apple's latest MacBook Pro line. The Surface Book 2 will be out in November. Here's more info:

Surface Book 2 with the 13" weighs 3.38lbs and the 15" Surface Book 2 at 4.2lbs, still offer up to 17 hours of video playback. It features a multi-touch display, Surface Pen, and Surface Dial on-screen support. Surface Book 2 brings a full array of ports, including USB-A, USB-C, and full-size SD card reader.

Surface Book 2 is designed to play as hard as it works. So when you're done with work for the day and you want to game, Surface Book 2 is powerful enough to handle the most popular PC games at 1080p and 60 FPS - in some cases matching the graphics performance of game consoles like Xbox One. With built-in Xbox One Wireless support on the 15" you can pair your Xbox One controllers and compatible headsets to play with no cords or additional dongles required. And with so much innovation in the mixed reality space, we're proud to share that Surface Book 2 is ready for Windows Mixed Reality Ultra. Connect a compatible headset and controller for apps and experiences with crisper visuals and a higher refresh rate (90 frames per second), including the highest-performance VR games.

Surface Book 2 13" will be available for pre-order beginning November 9th in the United States and additional markets around the world, along with Surface Book 2 15" in the United States at your local Microsoft Store and Delivery will begin on November 16th.

Pricing starts at $1,499 and there are a variety of higher end configurations. Visit the Surface website to see the details:
