Microsoft now selling Surface Book 2 with 128GB storage for $1199

Some Surface Pro 4 owners put their slate in the ice box to stop screen from flickering

The new spin on the Surface Laptop, which is now on sale in the United States, does come with a compromise to knock that price down, unsurprisingly - it runs with an Intel Core m3-7Y30 processor (1GHz base clock, capable of Turbo up to 2.6GHz). The Surface laptop now has a base model which is equipped with an Intel Core m3 processor with Intel HD Graphics 615 with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. With the price reductions, areas of the world where people have fewer resources may be able to buy the laptop, although the Surface Book 2 price still puts it solidly in the high-end market. 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. Microsoft, undoubtedly, would rather you look to OneDrive for your storage needs, though cloud capacity won't work so well if you're expecting to use the new Surface Book 2 for video editing and such.

For a comparison between the quality of the games and audience size, " TNF " on NBC 13.583 million total viewers this season. The joint announcement was made by Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner and Peter Rice , President of 21st Century Fox.

So it's probably not a great sign that Microsoft is introducing a lower-priced version of the Surface Book 2 with less storage. "Featuring a super-swish design, cutting-edge hardware and a pleasingly bloatware-free Windows install, it's hard to fault the Surface Book 2 for most tasks". 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. Price starts at $2,499 for the base variant.
