did a search, seems like it is an old version. Is there any big difference between the old model and the new one.

I think the main difference is the Intel processor between the Surface Laptop and Surface Laptop 2. The Surface Laptop 2 has the new 8th gen processors. The old model uses the 7th gen processors.

that doesn't seem a big difference for me. But the OS on the old one is 10s, not sure if I can upgrade to 10 for free now. It is said affordable, but not exactly how much. Did a little search, seems like it is free. Can any one confirm?

based on the video reviews I've seen the 8th gen processors are significantly better in performance. The 8th gen i5 performs just as well as the 7th gen i7.

Yes, Microsoft gives you a free upgrade from 10S to 10 for free, but you cannot revert back to 10S after that.

It's a huge difference my friend. Don't get me wrong, i7 7th get is a potent processor but 8th gen is miles away. It's like 2 to 3 gen difference

The 7th gen processors are dual-core while the 8th gen processors are quad-core. It is a huge difference in performance. Don't but the first gen surface laptop. Get the 2nd gen surface laptop. The i5-8525 of the 2nd gen performs almost the same as the i7-7660 in single core mode but in multi-core the i5-8525 outperforms the i7-7660 by a significant amount (doubles)

Not sure about this processor model. Have one i5 256 g. it doesn't get overheat except small heat on the battery charging side.

It is only a huge difference for people that use their processor at full performance... which very few people do. On a small ultrabook like this no one will notice the difference between 7th Gen and 8th Gen for everyday tasks.
