Pre-Order Your Microsoft Surface Book 2 in Singapore Now

Thinking of changing your laptop? Here is one that might interest you. Check out the Microsoft Surface Book 2. It is the latest edition from Microsoft and in my opinion, the most expensive one. It is now available for pre-order and will only be available in March 2018.

I love the unique hinge and the fact that it can be dislodged and use in a tablet form. Not sure why Microsoft did not want to add in cellular feature in this model. Check out the specs of the Microsoft Surface Book 2.
