Buy Microsoft Surface Book I7

With Surface Book in View Mode, fold the display down so you have a horizontal surface to write on. Use touch or Surface Pen to draw or take notes, just like on paper. And if you want a truly immersive creative experience, add Surface Dial.

In the United States, Surface Book, Surface Pro 4, Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, Microsoft Band 2 and Xbox One will be available through, more than 110 Microsoft stores, authorized resellers and select partner retailers. More information on Windows 10 and Microsoft devices can be found at

The Surface Book 2, available in two sizes, is starting to show its age, but it's still a powerhouse modular notebook. You get a dedicated GPU for specialized work, can use the display portion as a tablet when not connected to the base, and enjoy a better port selection, including full-size SD card reader. It's not as portable, and you don't get Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, but it's a better option for power users.

Whereas the Pro 7 is sold as a tablet to which you can add a Type Cover for a full notebook experience, the Surface Book 2 comes as a complete notebook with a display, keyboard, and touchpad. The display portion contains everything it needs inside to work on its own, and it can be detached from the base. You can use it as a tablet to browse the internet, watch a movie, or sketch with a Surface Pen (opens in new tab), then connect it back to the base to take advantage of extra battery and a dedicated GPU for maximum productivity. The tablet can even reattach backward to face out, effectively creating a stand with which you can angle the display.

Both devices utilize an IR camera for secure logins through Windows Hello, and both have similar standard camera hardware for shooting FHD video and stills. The main design decision between these two will come down to whether or not you want a tablet first, notebook second (in the case of the Pro 7), or a notebook first and tablet second (in the case of the Book 2). Keep in mind that the Pro 7 will prove to be more portable than even the 13.5-inch Book 2, making it an excellent choice for those always on the move.

The Pro 7 doesn't have a dedicated GPU option, but 10th Gen Intel Core CPUs will offer more raw performance than 8th Gen CPUs in the Book 2. You also get Wi-Fi 6 connectivity for blazing wireless speeds, as well as a USB-C port for improved connectivity. If you value mobility and prefer a tablet first, notebook second type experience, the Pro 7 should be your first choice.

With dedicated GPU and up to a 15-inch size, the Book 2 is better cut out for power users. The 8th Gen Intel Core CPUs are starting to show their age, especially in the face of 10th Gen chips, but they will still perform. You'll get longer battery life as long as you're not pushing the GPU, and you can remove the display from the keyboard and touchpad base when you just need a tablet. If you like the idea of a powerful notebook first, tablet second, the Book 2 should make a great choice.

okay thank you. What would you say is occasional use? I would use the surface book for just projects at home and in class, then use the university desktop computers when handling more complex stuff full major works. Is it capable of that?

This multi-touch 2-in-1 notebook is a 2016 model, with a massive 512GB onboard storage capacity. It has a 13.5" IPS touchscreen display and an Intel 6th gen (Skylake) dual-core processor for a seamless, immersive browsing experience. It also has an NVIDIA GeForce Graphics 1GB that's great for streaming and gaming. Plus, the tactile keyboard and touchpad make it easy to work on the move.

The most budget-friendly of the bunch, this 2-in-1 notebook still packs an Intel 6th gen (Skylake) dual-core processor and Intel HD Graphics 520 card for a seamless and immersive experience. The tactile keyboard and touchpad help you stay productive in your office, while you can disconnect from the dock to use the Surface Book as a tablet around the office, too. This 2016 model has 256GB of onboard storage and 8GB of RAM for consistently outstanding performance.

In reply to TEAMSWITCHER:"I simply cannot dismiss that having two devices, a thin-and-light notebook and a Desktop PC is a much better solution." You just need to add the words "for me" and your position will be unassailable. ;)

The lack of Thunderbolt 3 is a disappointment for me. I like the space between keyboard and screen when closed. I've noticed in Macs and other notebooks that you need to clean the screen frequently because the keyboard leaves a small film of dirt on the screen when closed. This doesn't happen in the SB2 because the keyboard and screen never touch.

Hi PaulThe Verge, and I believe Window Central though I haven't read their review, are reporting that the power supply that comes with the Surfacebook 2 isn't able to maintain its charge under heavy usage such as gaming. Apparently Microsoft have told them they think its a faulty charger, though this didn't convince them enough to delay publishing until it was confirmed one way or the other.Would you be able to test whether this is something you see as well?Cheers
