Available to pre-order today, the 15in Surface Book 2 comes with one major caveat: the price. Since the product first launched in November, we have been hearing from customers and fans about what sets Surface Book 2 apart. Meanwhile, Microsoft has sent out invites for a January 23 event in Gurugram, sparking interest that the announcement could be around the Surface Book 2. Microsoft, however, were tight-lipped about whether India would or would not miss out on the Surface Book 2 as well. The pre-order for the Surface Book 2 15-inch begins today in 17 markets.
Melrose confirms £7.4 billion hostile takeover bid for GKN
However the firm also came under pressure by U.S. activist hedge fund Elliott which has urged GKN to talk with Melrose. The increased offer is based on a rise in Melrose's own share price, which closed at 234.3p yesterday.
For people not interested in gaming, the specs of the 15in Surface Book 2 make it a decent mobile powerhouse that should be able to handle video editing and intensive photo tweaking with suitable aplomb. While the claims can not be verified at this point, the Surface Book has always been the most powerful portable offering from the Microsoft's stable and the Surface Book 2 is no different. The 15-inch model weighs in at 1.9 kg and is heavier than the 13-inch variant. The Surface 2 laptops can run for up to 17 hours between charges, offer multi-mode use with their 360-degree hinges, and work well for creatives with touch, Surface Pen and Surface Dial input.
Previously, the bigger and beefier 15-inch convertible had only been launched in the United States, but pre-orders are about to go live in the UK and Australia, as well as in Canada and Ireland, alongside the following nations: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland. On the connectivity front, the Surface Book 2 comes with an array of connectivity options, including USB-A, USB-C, and full-size SD card reader.
