Microsoft today made preorders available for the latest addition to the Surface PC family, the powerful Surface Book 2. It's expected be available on November 16, 2017.{.intro}

The Surface Book 2 is aimed mostly at professionals, or people who simply want the best Windows experience available today, and it does not come cheap, with prices starting at $1,499 and shooting up to $2,999.

But you get what you pay for, and the Surface Book 2 sure looks like one impressive machine with top-of-the-line specs, power (and GPU) enough for Windows Mixed Reality and legit gaming, and the ability to blow through many resource-intensive tasks without hesitation.

Still, it may be a hard sell for folks who don't really need a new PC or who simply don't have the cash to drop on a pricey new Surface. (I just bought the new Surface Pro a few months ago, but that Surface Book 2 has my name all over it, and I just might have to sell the Pro to get me a Book)

Cyber Monday is here! Shop nearly 200 of the BEST deals now!

We want to hear from you, though. So vote in our poll below and let the Windows Central community know. Surface Book 2 is expensive … but, damn, it's also slick, right? (I already ordered mine ... )
