Surface Book 2 is a hybrid 2-in-1 laptop from Microsoft. The company released this computer in late 2017. Surface Book 2 retained the previous form-factor from the first-gen device but added a new 15-inch option. Both models are powered by Intel's 8th gen processors with Nvidia 10 series GPUs (except the base 13-model, which has no discreet GPU and works on a 7th gen CPU.)

Here what is new for Surface Book 2 owners in the latest firmware update:
