Surface Book 2 Might Be a Traditional Laptop
According to Digitimes the next Surface Book will look more like a traditional clamshell laptop. The Surface Book 2 will look more like the laptops that we’ve come to love than the tablet/notebook combos we’ve seen from Microsoft. The 2-in-1 device is beloved by everyone who owns one, but the high price has deterred a lot of customers from buying the Surface Book. Microsoft cut the price of the Surface from $1,499 to $1,299, to help clean out the original Surface Book. If you want the 2-in-1 designed Surface Book, you should buy one now!
The Surface Book 2 will also include a lower price, which will help the device compete against other premium laptops. A favorite competitor has been the Dell XPS which has been a cheaper laptop style option for the Surface Book. It’ll help customers choose between the Surface 4 and the Surface Book.
Surface Book 2 will look more like a clamshell laptop than a 2-in-1
The Surface Book has been marketed primarily as a laptop, but the Surface line of devices are mostly related to a 2-in-1 device. Customers had a hard time choosing between a Surface tablet device and a Surface Book device. Having to choose between the two devices was hard when both devices were tablets with a keyboard, but the Surface Book looked more like a laptop than a tablet.
The Surface Book tablet was powerful, but in the keyboard, there was a Nvidia graphics card to boost the performance of the device. The hot swapping caused a lot of problems at launch, but Microsoft started issues patches to fix all the problems. The first generation device deserved a successor to the device, but sadly we won’t see one this year.
