This comes out specifically for the 13-inch Surface Book 2 model. The revamped model will also include an i5-8350U that will boost the processor’s maximum speed up to 3.6GHz. Microsoft is pricing the upgraded models at $1,499.

There’s a major discount for the existing dual-core 7th Gen model, which are priced at $1,299. Apart from this, the mid-range Surface Book 2 will also include 256 GB of storage and 8GB of RAM.
