If you set out to design a laptop with creators in mind, it would probably look like the Microsoft Surface Book 2. Described in a PopSci review as a “fantastic laptop” with a “beautiful and impressive” touchscreen display, this portable beast is ideal for illustration, photo editing, design, and more. It originally retailed for $2,499.99, but you can currently pick up a fully refurbished and recertified version now for just $1,199.99 at the PopSci Shop.

Powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM, the Surface 2 Book runs powerful software with ease. You can multi-task all you like, and the device offers an impressive 15 hours of battery life. You also get 256GB of solid-state storage and full wireless connectivity.

However, the main event is the 13.5-inch LED display. When you want to draw, or touch up your photos, you can remove the keyboard and use the Surface Book 2 as a tablet. With a resolution of 2256 x 1504, you can see every detail.

The recertified tag means that these laptops have been inspected and fully restored by the manufacturer.
