Surface Book 2 Offers Upgrades, But Storage Comes at a High Price

11_Surface Book 2The reviews are in: Microsoft’s new Surface Book 2 is one of the most powerful, impressive computers on the market.

The Surface Book 2 builds on the design of the previous Surface Book, with its trademark laptop-to-tablet detachable screen. While it looks a lot like its predecessor on the outside, updates to the screen and hardware give this model a significant bump.

The Surface Book 2 boasts an almost 4K display measuring up to 3240 X 2160 pixels (260 ppi). The super-fast, super-responsive touchscreen with great color reproduction and viewing angles will delight creators and innovators of all stripes.

You’ll find some of the most exciting improvements in the hardware, with quad-core processors and the addition of a proper discrete graphics chip. The 15-inch model features Nvidia’s GTX 1060, which supports VR gaming. You’re sure to notice the processor bump whether you’re gaming, editing videos, or performing other CPU-heavy tasks.

But, these upgrades come at a price. There are many configuration options, but the 13.5-inch model starts at $1,500, and the 15-inch starts at $2,500. For anyone who wants or needs bigger storage—and let’s face it, that’s most of us—the 15-inch with 1TB will set you back a whopping $3,300. That’s about $100 more than a comparable MacBook Pro, for anyone keeping score.

So, what to do? If you spring for the storage, know that it has a frustratingly brief shelf life. When your computer inevitably dies, you’ll have to pay heavily for storage all over again.

Yet, with an ultra-portable, high-capacity LINK, you can stop worrying about paying a premium for the laptop or smartphone with the most storage. LINK can act as an extended memory solution for any laptop, tablet or phone as it comes with a 2TB SSD. Storing all your files in one place becomes a clearer reality and you don’t have to pay for a cloud service just because you want to transfer to a new device.

So, if you’re dying for that new Surface Book 2, go for it! Just know there are less expensive solutions available instead of buying the top-of-the-line storage model.

With up to 2TB of SSD storage, the pocket-sized LINK can handle a sea of data, boasting greater storage capacity than your laptop, phone and tablet combined. Better still, as a common memory solution, LINK lives beyond the limited lifespan of any laptop, saving money and frustration over time.
