  • New Surface Book 2 model comes with 128GB storage for $1199

Microsoft's hybrid laptop features an Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage that should suit the needs of most users just fine. The i7 models also come with a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU, and while those models start at $1,999, there's a significant performance increase.

The news comes after "Consumer Report" removed its badge of recommendation from Microsoft's entire suite of Surface PCs having found its software is less reliable than other brands.

Of course, you may have to move some of that content out of the 13.5-incher's internal storage if you opt for the newest "budget-friendly" variant, although the rest of the specifications will make the $1,200 purchase totally worth it.

It will also be accompanied by 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, Intel's HD Graphics 615, but for the most part it isn't too drastically different. The price for the Surface Laptop go all the way up to $2199.

He concluded: "The Surface Book 2 is a great convertible for power users with cash to burn". As reported by Windows Central, the tech giant is now selling a stripped down version of the laptop with an Intel Core m3 processor inside.




Microsoft is introducing cheaper models of its Surface Laptop and Surface Book 2.

While the specs are nothing to get overly excited about, you can still bag yourself a more than reasonable computer for the asking price - and if the Surface name is something that particularly appeals, the value skyrockets.

The Surface Book 2 received an 8/10 score from TrustedReviews during our test drive past year.

The version with a 256GB SSD is obviously still available in exchange for $1,499, and you don't get anything else extra compared to the $1,199 128 gig model.
