Microsoft launched the Surface Book, its 2-in-1 laptop, in 2015, and decided not to upgrade it last year. Instead, it concentrated on making the laptop available in many regions gradually. However, a fresh report claims that the successor is finally coming and has even entered mass production. The Surface Book 2 is expected to launch as soon as the end of this month or in April.
DigiTimes reports that the Surface Book 2 has entered into mass production, and one of the big change from the predecessor is the ditching of the 2-in-1 design. Apparently, the Surface Book 2 will be a regular laptop with no detachable or 360-degree hinge that can transform the laptop into a tablet, prop it up in tent mode and also be able to use it flat on a table top. Design wise, that’s quite disappointing, but the Surface Book 2 will be cheaper starting at $1,000 (roughly Rs. 65,500).
Lastly, the report also claims that the Surface Book 2 will continue to sport a 13.5-inch display, and a body made of magnesium-aluminium alloy.
