According to Microsoft, the Surface Laptop 2 focus more on performance with a neat design compared to the previous iteration.

The Surface Laptop 2 is 85 percent faster than before thanks to the new quad-core Intel processor. Other than this, it features an all-day battery life, which means Microsoft is keeping up with the competition. the keyboard has also been revamped and features quieter typing experience. With the Instant On and Windows Hello combined, you will be kept into the flow seamlessly.
As for the design, the Surface Laptop features a similar design but in a brand-new color option which is my personal favorite - matte black. So if you like your laptop stealthier, you will enjoy the Surface Laptop's new color.
The display of the new Surface Laptop 2 seems to have received major attention with 3.8x more pixels than the MacBook Air 13 with 3.4 million pixels. the contrast ratio nears 1,500:1 and all of these numbers are cramped under the thinnest LCD on a traditional laptop.
