Microsoft announces new Surface Precision Mouse

Microsoft Expands Surface Family with 15in Surface Book 2

Microsoft launched several new Surface devices in the previous year or so - the $2999 Surface Studio all-in-one PC, the $999 Surface Laptop for students, and a revamped $799 Surface Pro.

That's a bold claim, but one that's well backed up by numbers.

Surface Book 2 is based around the eighth generation Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 and 1060 graphic options.

The PC maker said that the Surface Book 2's specs make it around five times faster than its predecessor - and twice as powerful as the newest MacBook Pro (though Microsoft didn't specify which configuration it was comparing to).

But the biggest new feature is that the new Surface Book 2 comes in two sizes, 13.5-inch and 15-inch.

SLC had earlier announced that one squad would be picked to play all three T20Is versus Pakistan . It seems like we will be there in Lahore for only for 24 hours.

Certainly the device has a lot going for it on that front, including the 3240 x 2160 touchscreen display on the 15-inch version.

For those having trouble keeping track of the increasingly crowded Surface line (can't say I blame you), the Book is the company's first full-fledged laptop (whereas other models have been positioned as convertible tablets). Having said that, Microsoft, with this laptop, aims to bring the power of mixed reality, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and immersive gaming to you. This versatile system seeks to satisfy artists, design fans, gamers, STEM scholars, and premium-hardware enthusiasts who want a larger, more powerful 2-in-1 than the original smaller-screen Surface Book.

Now, Microsoft wants its Surface Book to be that device.

Microsoft has also finally seen the light and added a USB-C port to one of its Surface devices, in addition to a SD card reader and two USB 3.0 ports. According to Microsoft, you can expect up to 17 hours of battery life (video playback) between charges.

Microsoft hasn't introduced any new design with the Surface Book 2, it is still the same original Surface Book but Microsoft has improved the design and it looks much better than ever before.

Ontario college staff on strike
The CEC, in a public statement, has calculated the cost of the union's proposals at more than $400 million annually. Faculty at 24 Ontario colleges went on strike late Sunday, affecting more than 500,000 students.

In 2016, Microsoft showed that it wanted to double down on the power of the Surface Book by releasing a (sloppily-named) update to i7 processors called the Surface Book With Performance Base.

Surface Book 2 (13.5-inch) with 7th Generation Intel Core i5, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, and integrated graphics.

With the Surface Book 2, long transpacific flights can also be productive ones. While most professional-level laptops weight eight to ten pounds, the 13-inch Surface Book 2 weighs only 3.38 pounds and the 15-inch model weighs just 4.2 pounds. Thanks to the powerful GPU inside, the Surface Book 2 can easily handle most games at 1080p resolution.

Pricing starts at at $1499 for a 13-inch, while quad-core 15-inch versions will cost from $2499. The Surface Book 2 15-inch model will be available to purchase on November 16 through Microsoft Stores, MicrosoftStore.com, and select retailers in the United States.
