Microsoft Silently Updates Surface Book 2 13.5 With Quad-Core i5 Option



Microsoft is a bit of an enigma in the PC space. There's little doubt that they offer some stunning hardware, but after being the first PC maker to jump on Intel's Skylake platform, and then being burned by power management issues that chipset had, they've been more cautious with their offerings ever since. Thanks to their somewhat unusual launch windows, that can mean that they use older hardware for longer. The Core i7 model shipped with the 8th generation Intel Core, meaning Kaby Lake Refresh, which means quad-core over dual-core in Kaby Lake. But the Core i5 model shipped with a dual-core Kaby Lake i5-7300U processor, meaning it had a sizeable performance delta to the top tier model – far more than we typically see in a Core i5 to Core i7 comparison.

Without any fanfare at all, Microsoft has started offering a quad-core Intel Core i5-8350U in the 13.5-inch Surface Book 2 option, taking the pricing bracket that the dual-core i5-7300U used to fill. For the moment, the dual-core is still available, and gets a discount of $ 200 to $ 1299. In addition, the dual-core model can also be equipped with a 128 GB SSD, cutting the price again to $ 1,199.

The Surface Book 2 is one of the best laptops on the market, offering a combination of utility and performance that is not really matched by any other device.

The updated Surface Book 2 is available on the Microsoft Store.
