Although the 13- and 15-inch models of the new Surface Book 2 has been available since November 2017, only in the United States was possible to get the one with larger screen. Starting January 17, 2018, Microsoft is making available the Surface Book 2 15-inch available in 17 more countries, including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

The larger model features Intel’s eighth-generation with an Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics with more than enough power to handle the latest PC game titles without a power cord. Also, Surface Book 2 integrates support to connect any Xbox controller.

You can get the laptop with up to 16GB of memory, 1TB of storage, and Microsoft claims up to 17 hours of battery life. (You can learn more details about Surface Book 2 here.)
