Microsoft just unveiled their new refresh of the Surface Book lineup, along with the announcement of their Windows 10 Fall Creators update. But, we’re not here to talk about Windows, we’re here for the new Surface Book 2, right?

While now sporting discrete NVIDIA GPUs inside as well as new processors, the Surface Book 2 retains its predecessor’s design principle – elegant, yet powerful.

Meanwhile, Microsoft touts that their new Surface Book 2 is up to five times more powerful than the Surface Book, providing 70% battery life more than the latest MacBook Pro models. But still, this one remains vague and are just according to the company itself.

Being lightweight is also advertised with the 13-inch one model of the new Surface Book 2 weighing in at around 1.53kg while the 15-inch one weighing in at 1.9kg. Both models will also run the newly-announced Windows 10 Fall Creators update out of the box.

You can pre-order the new Surface Book 2 starting November 9th in the United States. It is priced around USD $1,499 (~PhP75K) for the 13-inch model, and USD $2,499 (~PhP127K) for the 15-inch model.
