The Surface Book is receiving good reviews from the consumers. Because of the fastest growing technology, Microsoft is expected to release an updated and improved laptop model, the Surface Book 2.

Surface Book 2 is highly anticipated by fans that some are already fabricating leaks. However, the company has not released any confirmation or announcement for this new laptop.

The Surface Book 2 is speculated to be an improved model of the first Surface Book, which has a detachable screen, Surface Pen support, Intel Skylake dual-core processors and Windows 10 Professional. Despite an intimidating list of hardware specs, the 2-in-1 laptop didn't arrive without a few hiccups.

There were some complaints surrounding the Dynamic Fulcrum Hinge including a gap that formed when the laptop is closed. The Clipboard portion of the device has a low battery life and the pricing is rather costly at the higher end.

It is safe to say that many technology fans are already clamoring for Microsoft to improve on an already promising formula. The original launched just over a year ago and now it is already time for a better model, the Surface Book 2.

On the other point, during the Microsoft's October 26 Windows 10 event, the company revealed Surface Book i7, a later upgrade to the current Surface Book with twice the graphical capabilities and a longer 16-hour battery life. The latest iteration of Surface Book was announced alongside the Windows 10 Creators Update, slated for spring of 2017.

Still, we can assume that a true Surface Book successor, Surface Book 2, will be shown as we inch closer to the next major Windows update. It would make sense with the release frame to launch the new model with Intel's next-generation Kaby Lake processors.

Surface Book 2 might still have no confirmation, but it is surely one of the top laptops when it is released to market. This improvised laptop is expectedto launch in the fall of 2017.
