Microsoft is giving its hybrid laptop, the Surface Book 2, a facelift, and it deserves some attention.
The 13.5-inch model, which has been fairly well received by the public, is equipped with a brand new processor , an 8th generation Quad-Core i5 processor from Intel. What offer more muscle to this mid-range product from Microsoft.
As for the price, this new version will be available for whoever will pay 1,499 dollars , but it will only be in the combination of 256 GB of storage capacity and 8 GB of RAM.
On the configuration side, the Surface Book 2 keeps its marks
Microsoft has not touched the other components for the Surface Book 2, version 13.5 inches. Thus, the combination of 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of memory remains the one available for the model.
On the other hand, we have more to expect from the new version of the processor that accompanies it, the i5-8350U from Intel, clocked at 1.7 GHz, but capable of reaching 3.6 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 technology.
This feature is activated automatically under certain conditions and allows the computer to surpass itself in terms of performance when the tasks performed are particularly resource-intensive.
It is undeniable that this will be an improvement that will certainly be greatly appreciated by users of Microsoft's hybrid notebook.
The basic version with 256 GB of memory goes to $ 1,299
Improvement requires, the base model of the Surface Book 2, embedding a 7th generation Intel Core i5 processor, with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of memory capacity goes from 1,499 dollars to only 1,299 dollars, in order not to make the shadow to the revisited version of the model. For the same processor-memory configuration, but with 128 GB of RAM, the price will be $ 1,149 this time.
