Typing at work on Microsoft's new 15-inch Surface Book 2, I can't shake the feeling that this thing's not for me. Don't get me wrong, it's a powerful laptop, it's beautiful, and the workspace its giant screen affords made me completely forget I wasn't seated at my desk with my usual 32-inch extra-wide display. So sure, the thing is for me, in the way that a very expensive sports car will most definitely sit in city traffic for hours right next to a yellow cab. But do I need the thing, and should I spend $US3,300 (expect upwards of $4,361 here) on it? Of course not.

There's a new Surface Book -- the Surface Book 2. It has the newest Intel processors under the hood, the newest Nvidia graphics, and a new 15-inch screen size along the original 13.5-inch version. All that comes with up to 17 hours of battery life, which Microsoft says is 70 per cent more than the latest MacBook Pro the Surface Book goes up against.
