The teardown expert from iFixit claims that it's a nightmare to fix the new Surface Book 2 and the team has given the Microsoft's ultimate laptop a repairability score of just one. iFixit had a look at what's inside the Surface Book 2 and performed several tests to calculate the repairability score. It is mostly the same as the original Surface Book. Here is everything that the critics are saying about Microsoft's latest flagship Surface device. Furthermore, the Nvidia graphics pre-installed on the Surface Book 2 offers power and visuals that definitely better than its predecessor.

Surface Book 2's keyboard will provide you a joyful experience than smaller laptops as its spacing just feels solid.

So far, so good for the Microsoft Surface Book 2.

"This is the Microsoft Surface Book 2, and just like every Surface device we've done a teardown on this year, it scored horribly on our repairability scale".

Business Insider's Matt Weinberger had few caveats for the Surface Book 2, calling it "probably the best computer I've ever used". Moreover, Microsoft's claims that they have reduced the wobble when users touch the display seems to persist.

Microsoft has added the new USB-C which makes the Surface Book 2 unique as it is the first Surface product featuring USB-C.

Meanwhile, Tech Radar cited that the Microsoft Surface Book 2offers great battery life for daily work use. The fanless design is also one of the definite pros of the laptop, as it is a quiet worker while also ensuring no overheat. "For the first time ever, the Surface Book 2 is available in two size options: "a classic 13.5" model which is now available to purchase, and a new 15" model which is currently USA only and will start shipping on November 30. The Stylus Pen, which was highly advertised with the laptop, is also being sold separately.

You can play games like Overwatch, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and Destiny 2 on the Surface Book 2 and it will handle all three very well.
