    I am debating getting a surface book 2, or laptop. Then a go for travelling. Hard to make up my mind on what way to go. Pardon the pun.

    No gaming here. Photo, video and graphics creation.

    Well would the 3000 x 2000 pixels make a difference to your editing? You get a fair bit more vertical real estate.

    Would be surprised if you needed a nvidia GPU though

    Both surface books and laptop have the same resolution and screen real estate. So, I don't get what you are asking?

    They have the same 3 x 2 aspect ratio.

    But the Surface Book 2 has more pixels:
    • Surface laptop 2 screen resolution: 2256 x 1504
    • Surface Book 2 (13 inch) screen resolution: 3000 x 2000
    • Surface Book 2 (15 inch) screen resolution: 3260 x 2160

    Oh, Got ya now. I thought the old one had 3000x2000 as well. Yes, the book 2 is what I would be buying.
