Microsoft's "all-in-one" Surface laptops have been all the rage in the gadgets arena lately, thanks to its ultracompetitive specs and high performance rate. No wonder the Surface range has been such a hot topic lately, especially as the upcoming Microsoft Surface Book 2 was a no-show during Microsoft's event during the last quarter of 2016.

Needless to say, Microsoft Surface Book 2 remains one of the most anticipated laptops out there. But what exactly is it that makes it so appealing to so many tech enthusiasts? Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming Microsoft Surface Book 2: specifications and features, new upgrades, price details, release dates and more.

Specifications and features

The Microsoft Surface Book 2, like its predecessor, is expected to go by its "ultimate laptop" title. Like all upcoming Surface devices, the Surface Book 2 is expected to pack the latest Intel Kaby Lake processors, 13.5-inch display with a 3,840 x 2,160 screen resolution to support 4k video capacity. It might also update to a more discrete, less power-hog GPU option, such as the GeForce GTX 980M.

The Microsoft Surface Book 2 is also expected to have VR support. While this remains mostly a wishlist from tech fans, it's still highly likely that Microsoft would eventually give in to the VR trend, especially as it now has a record of partnerships with HP, Dell and Lenovo, according to Tech Radar.

Price details and release dates

According to the International Business Times, the Microsoft Surface Book 2 is not expected to launch any time soon, especially since Microsoft had just recently done a refresh for the Surface Book i7 device. Moreover, its use of the Kaby Lake processors, which would not be available until next year, further bolstered reports that the Surface Book 2 will launch 2017. Stay tuned for more details on the Microsoft Surface Book 2.
