Alongside the Surface Pro 6, Microsoft this week unveiled the Surface Laptop 2, another modest refresh that still manages to bring a significant speed boost to the table.
From the outside, the Surface Laptop 2 looks exactly like the original Surface Laptop, albeit with a new matte black color option. On the inside, however, the laptop is now powered by Intel's 8th Gen processors, making it up to 85 percent faster than the original, Microsoft says. The typing experience has also been improved with a quieter keyboard, and Microsoft has revamped the cooling system so that the fan only kicks on at around 90 percent CPU usage.
