One of the biggest differences between the two notebooks in our comparison is on the display. Apart from the use of LCD in both of the laptop's displays, there's not much they have in common. For starters, the Surface Book 2 will come in two display sizes -- a 13.5-inch model and a 15-inch model. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon falls in between the two sizes, at 14 inches.

The Surface Book 2 screen sports higher resolution than the X1 Carbon on both of its models -- 3,000 x 2,000 for the 13.5-inch version, and 3,240 x 2,160 for the 15-inch model. The X1 Carbon is noticeably lower-res at 1,920 x 1,080 in the standard configuration. The X1 Carbon does have a 2,560 x 1,440 configuration available, though.

Perhaps the biggest difference between the displays is that the Surface Book 2 display is a touchscreen that can detach for use as a tablet, while the X1 Carbon display is non-touch.
