The computer’s detachable display and the adjoining hinge, come upgraded/redesigned for a convenient transformation from a Tablet to a full-blown Studio Mode. When detached, the Surface Book 2 becomes the world’s thinnest and lightest 8th Gen Intel Core i7 PC, complete with USB-A, USB-C and full-size SD card reader.
