Microsoft just launched a new entry-level Surface Book 2 in UK and more locations in Europe. The device is much cheaper than the previous models, and you’ll be able to get it for £1,149. This is more affordable compared to the previous entry-level model which was priced at £1,499.

If you’re wondering what the difference between the two models, the previous one had more storage space. This cheaper model comes with 128GB, and the pricier model had 256GB. Other specs remained the same: 13.5-inch display, a Core i5 CPU, and 8GB RAM.

An entry-level Surface Laptop is also expected

There will definitely be a lot of users who will consider that sacrificing storage space for less money is worthwhile because we’re looking at £350. Microsoft did the same thing in the US as well before bringing its more affordable entry-level device in the UK, France, and Germany.

The company brought a new entry-level Surface Laptop in the US in February that is priced $200 less than the previous one. The cheaper model of Surface Laptop comes with a downgrade regarding the CPU – Intel Core m3-7Y30. The more expensive model was sporting a Core i5 CPU. This device did not make it in the UK yet, but Microsoft will probably bring it there as well, especially considering the fact that it just bought the cheaper Surface Book 2. The more affordable Surface Laptop should follow.

Main reasons to get the Surface Book 2

The Microsoft Surface Book 2 is a great device and users rated it as one of the most powerful 2-in-1 devices that can currently be found on the market. The premium design, great specs, and excellent features make it ideal for Windows 10. The Surface Book 2’s best features include its fanless design, powerful performance, extraordinary battery life and an overall pleasant feeling to use it as a tablet.
