The Surface Book 2 is Microsoft’s latest wonder of industrial design, and I believe their most impressive device of 2017, improving by leaps and bounds on the original Surface Book 2 and setting new industry benchmarks for battery life and performance.
The team responsible for the creation of the hybrid tablet/laptop have now spoken about the creation experience and design goals, and Microsoft has posted their interviews on the Surface channel.
The interviews feature Ralf Groene, Head of Industrial Design, who talks about Surface inspiration, the creative process, and the importance of fan feedback. Then we have Jeff Stewart, Senior Director and Product Line Manager at Microsoft, who talks about some of the ins and outs behind the production of the most powerful Surface Book Microsoft has created to date.
