Happily, it seems that the giant company also understands that hardware refresh does not have to come only as part of a new generation of the product - and now launching another version of God- Book 2 prestigious, with changes strictly in some internal components.

A refreshing change on the part We hope that this is the beginning of a new approach that will help Maintain relevancy for longer periods of time

The Surface Book 2 has been sold for nearly a year and a half with a hard-to-digest 1,500 base price for a model with an 13.5-inch screen that includes a drive 256GB, RAM and 8GB RAM Core i5-7300U is an antique something with a pair of physical processing cores only. From now on, at the price of 1,500 dollars will get consumers the God- i5-8350U, with four physical processing cores that will maximize performance in most existing applications.

The touch pen and the Dial are still sold separately (and relatively expensive)

This is a logical upgrade and is absolutely needed, considering that more advanced models of the Surface Book 2 have already reached the beginning with processors i7 quadrilateral and because both- i5-8350U This is an old-fashioned model that was even inherited last year as part of the E-.
