In our Microsoft Surface Book 2 review, its modern, detachable design and great stylus won us over. We were also impressed by the laptop's long battery life, which lasts 12 hours and 9 minutes in our Laptop Mag Battery Test.
The Surface Book 2's keyboard feels great and easily detaches from the lid. Besides laptop mode, it can be used in tablet, studio or view mode. Its optional Surface Pen (sold separately) is nearly lag-free and has 4,096 degrees of pressure sensitivity.
Performance-wise, the Surface Book 2's Core i7-8650U breezed through heavy multitasking in our real world testing. Even with 30 Google Chrome tabs open, while streaming a 1080p video on YouTube and drawing in Windows Ink Workspace's Sketchpad, there was no sign of lag.
Connectivity-wise, the Surface Book 2 packs two Surface Connect ports, two USB 3.1 ports and a single USB Type-C port.
Now $710 off, the Surface Book 2 is a solid pick for creative pros and anyone else looking for a versatile Windows 10 machine.
