Why you can trust Windows Central Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

Whether you choose the 13-inch or 15-inch configuration, the Surface Book 2 delivers a beautiful touch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio. You're looking at a 3,000 x 2,000 resolution on the smaller display and a 3,240 x 2,160 resolution on the larger laptop, with both being compatible with Surface Pen and Surface Dial.

Thanks to the modular design, the display can be removed from the keyboard and touchpad for a tablet experience, and it can be replaced backwards in order to sit flat with screen facing out. An IR camera sits above the display for quick Windows Hello logins, and the battery will get you through more than a standard workday.

For maximum performance, you'll want to check out the 15-inch Surface Book 2 with NVIDIA GTX 1060 GPU, great for gaming and some specialized multimedia tasks. The eighth-gen quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU and 16GB of RAM won't bottleneck, giving you overall one of the most versatile laptops on the market. Oh, yeah, there's also a USB-C port.


More and more laptops are being redesigned to include USB-C ports, and choices aren't as limited as even a year ago (as you can see by the wide selection we have here). Still, your best bet for a laptop with USB-C is the Surface Book 2.

Updated April 6, 2018: This roundup has been completely overhauled with a bunch of new laptops to ensure you're still looking at the best devices with USB-C.
