Just like its predecessor, the Microsoft Surface Book 2 features a display that can be popped off the keyboard base to become a thin, light, and powerful tablet with active pen support. This allows it to be used in four different modes. In laptop mode, you get a full keyboard and large trackpad that you can use alongside the interactive touchscreen. Detaching the PixelSense display transforms it into a tablet you can take anywhere. You can also fold it into studio mode for a more comfortable and natural drawing position. And when you need to share content or presentations, you can detach the display and turn it around before reattaching to get a screen you can control with voice commands.
The tablet is the Microsoft Surface Book 2’s main computer component. Inside it is the latest quad-core Intel processor which has enough power to run professional-grade software. Docking it in its keyboard base lets you tap into the built-in NVIDIA GeForce GPUs for improved graphics performance. Most of the battery is also in the base. The combined batteries of the tablet and the keyboard can last you for up to 17 hours — almost double the normal working day.
