    Consumer Reports Withholds Recommendation for Microsoft Surface Book 2


    Microsoft Corporation MSFT is back with a new model of its Surface Book after Consumer Reports rebuffed the original, but it still isn’t winning approval.

    “We will evaluate the performance of the Microsoft Surface Book 2 once we get it into our labs next month for testing, but we will not be able to recommend it,” Consumer Reports spokesperson James McQueen told Benzinga. “Our decision to withhold our recommendation of all Microsoft laptops and tablets is still in effect.”

    Microsoft is adopting the trend of creating an almost disposable devices with shelve life of 2 years before an upgrade becomes eminent , this is sort of acceptable with mobile devices (ex: IPhone) judging their upgrade-ability isn't a hassle process like that of a Microsoft laptop/tablet (Double to Triple the price , Disk spaces are enormous and backup/sync solutions aren't free, They are oftenly used for work purposes yet reliability and upgrade time are questionable) so it is quite logical to not be recommended , guys either copy google/apple or just stick to PC ancient standards both trends are incompatible , thumbs up for CR .
