Surface Book 2—the most powerful Surface ever

Microsoft recently unveiled to the world the next generation of the ultimate laptop: Surface Book 2— the most powerful Surface ever.

With this device, Microsoft added a new level of powerhouse performance to its business portfolio, increasing the diversity of their product line-up and proving to commercial customers that the brand new Microsoft Surface is without any doubt the best device for the modern work environment.

When Microsoft launched the Surface two years ag, their intentions were to build the most powerful and versatile laptop. As such, Microsoft focussed on how they could put more into it – more power, more pixels, more battery – but on any possible avenue in which their customers benefit from it.

The brand new reinvented Surface Book 2 is
