Microsoft Surface Book 2 And New Surface Precision Mouse Announced

After rolling out final version of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Microsoft has announced Surface Book 2 into the mix of new notebook computers and a new mouse alongside. The latter of those two could perhaps go missing when unveiled along with a whole computer, it’s definitely worth noting.

And yes, Microsoft introduced the Surface Book 2, and of course, the Surface Precision Mouse. Here’s what this two hardware bring to the table.

Surface Book 2

This is Microsoft’s new Surface Book 2 of a thing, which comes in two flavors. Available in 13.5-inch and also with 15.5-inch models, and also comes with a slew of different configurations to choose from. As far as big changes are concerned, the main one is the inclusion of eighth-generation Intel Core processors, meaning there is now a quad-core option for those who require a bit extra grunt.

The 13.5-inch Surface Book 2 shipping with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics processor with 2GB of memory.

While the 15-inch Surface Book 2 has a GTX 1060 with 6GB of GPU memory, but rather this being a full-fledged notebook computer there are plenty of configuration options to be had so you can tailor everything to your needs.

Externally, it’s now stronger and smaller, allowing both to take up less space on the chassis while still doing the important job of keeping the screen attached to the notebook’s body. This holds the slightly tweaked keyboard design, though, you may be hard-pressed to notice the visual changes.

Price wise, expect the 13.5-inch model to start at $1,499, and you’ll have to hand over $2,499 for the 15″ version.

For Surface Book 2 Pre-orders, which is available to do so starting November 9th, and availability is expected by 16th.

Surface Precision Mouse

This is one thing that should be considered, the new Surface Precision Mouse – a pointer that looks distinctly Microsoft while also having an appearance that looks fresh at the same time. This mouse can work in both wired and wireless models via a micro-USB connection. There are three sides that can be customized in the usual manner.

What is new?

The mouse can also be paired with up to three devices at once, to a Smart TV, Windows 10 PC and it can be used across your notebooks without having to re-pair things constantly. Want to pick one up? Living in the United States or Canada can just grab it from the Microsoft Store and Best Buy for $99 USD, and it will ship on November 16.
