Review: 5 Things I Love About Microsoft's Surface Book 2

The notebook's strong battery life and terrific display make it one of the best all-around notebooks and a worthy rival to Apple's MacBook Pro.

Overall Design

Perhaps the riskiest move Microsoft that made with the Surface Book 2 is on the laptop's hinge. Because of the hinge's design, the notebook doesn't completely close the way that other laptops do; there's a gap between the display and the base section when the notebook is closed. While the unfamiliarity of the design was a bit surprising at first, it grew on me after using the Surface Book 2 for a while. And overall, the light silver metallic body has an appealing look. This is a notebook with the sort of style that you previously would only see in Apple's laptop line. While many people will be fine with the look of the Lenovo ThinkPad or Dell Latitude line, there's still something to be said for a laptop with a design that makes you want to use it -- it almost lures you in. That's the sort of laptop you can truly get productive on.
