    My Surface Book 2 just arrived...yippee :) awesome looking machine and can't wait to get started with it.

    I have hit on a slight issue though: for years I've been connecting my Surface Pro 4 to an external display using a standard HDMI to Mini Display port cable, which has worked just great.

    But the Surface Book 2 doesn't have a Mini Display port....ooops :P

    What sort of cable set up am I going to need to get my Book 2 talking to an external display?

    Cheers

    John

    I use the Surface Dock to connect two external monitors to my SB2, and it works well. It's not exactly cheap, but it's reliable.

    I'd get the dock or USBC to HDMI cable or adapter

    I can testify that the Microsoft Surface USB-C to HDMI adapter works fine with my SB2 15" and my Dell Ultrasharp 4K display. I get 4K @60Hz, and it looks very nice.

    I'll note, though, that I've not yet been able to get Netflix to play in 4K on the external display, which I would think it should be able to do (note the post I made on the topic). An Acer 2-in-1 plugged in with the same adapter, cable, and display does play Netflix at 4K. So, that's a mystery so far.
