Microsoft details Surface Book 2, showing off new hinge and more

It was only last week that Microsoft debuted its latest computing product, the Surface Book 2. While the design on a whole remains similar to the first, the major difference this time around is the addition of a second model with a larger 15-inch display. In two weeks time, the products will be available for pre-order and it looks like the firm has released a new video that will educate those curious about the new Surface Book 2 models.

In the video, we get to see interviews with folks who worked on the product and get a feel for the process when it comes to working on creating a successor to the Surface Book. While there are many important details, the video offers a look at the newly re-engineered hinge, that will give users a more fluid experience. For example, the new hinge mechanism is now designed to reduce the bounce that occurs when a user taps the display. While this might not seem like a big deal, it's attention to details like this that will surprise touchscreen laptop users when they first experience the Surface Book 2.

The Microsoft Surface Book 2 will be available to pre-order starting on November 7. The firm has prepared a variety of different configurations for the 13-inch and 15-inch models.
