Back in November 2017, Microsoft unveiled the Surface Book 2, a groundbreaking 2-in-1 laptop that captured the attention of tech enthusiasts worldwide. After almost six years of providing users with exceptional performance and versatility, the Surface Book 2 has now reached its end of life (servicing date) on May 30, 2023, as we’ve noted from the tech giant’s firmware lifecycle document.

Build for Windows 10, the Surface Book 2 boasts a 15-inch/13-inch display, an eighth-gen Intel Quad-Core i7, 16GB RAM, and a variety of storage from 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB SSD. The price started at $1,499 for the 13-inch model and $2,499 for the 15-inch one.

At the time of its release, Surface Book 2 was a testament to Microsoft’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of technology. With its sleek design, detachable display, and powerful hardware, it quickly garnered a reputation as a game-changer in the laptop industry. The device boasted impressive features, including high-resolution touchscreens, detachable keyboards, and a range of configurations to cater to various user needs.

What does ‘End of Servicing’ mean for Surface Book 2?

The end of servicing date for the Surface Book 2 means that Microsoft will no longer release software updates or provide technical support specific to this device. However, it is important to note that the Surface Book 2 will still function as a reliable device even after the end of servicing, with users able to continue using their devices with the existing software.

Not too long ago, other products like Windows 10 20H2, also faced the end of its servicing cycle. The Home and Pro 21H2 version of the operating system is also coming to an end in June 2023, followed by Outlook and PowerPoint 2019 for Mac in October.
