Previously, the bigger and beefier 15-inch convertible had only been launched in the US, but the good people of the UK can now get their mitts on one.
Surface Book 2 15-inch
The 15-inch model features an 8th-gen Core i7 processor alongside a more powerful GPU than you’ll get in the 13.5-inch Surface Book 2 – it runs with a GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of video memory (as opposed to a GTX 1050 with 2GB of video RAM).
So there’s more pixel-shifting power here. That’s just as well as the 15-inch PixelSense detachable display has a resolution of 3,240 x 2,160. This is pretty neat when compared to the smaller Surface Book 2’s 3,000 x 2,000. The brain boxes out there will have realised that, as it’s a bigger screen, it actually has a slightly lower pixel density. However, this is a very minor difference and nothing you’d actually notice.
Another benefit of the bigger Surface Book 2 is a beefier battery. This boasts up to 17 hours of stamina.
