Engadget Review

The Surface Book 2 is one of the most powerful and well-designed Windows laptops on the market. And thanks to its improved hinge, it doesn’t feel any different than a traditional notebook. It’s the best MacBook Pro competitor we’ve seen yet.

Pros
  • Hinge is stronger than before
  • Better CPU and graphics
  • 15-inch screen can fully compete with the MacBook Pro
  • Works well as a tablet
Cons
  • Expensive if you need more storage
  • Doesn’t come with Surface Pen
