Clarification please. Are you referring to Classic or to Lightroom CC? Different programs now, you know.
Jim, good catch! I am referring to Lightroom Classic. I am still getting used to the name change I would be processing 24 megapixel raw images on the SB2.

Since you don't tell us the exact make and model of this Surface Book 2, we can only guess.
If it is this one
then I would say this CPU is wayyyyyy too slow for 24 megapixel images. If you are only going to do some basic image manipulation (like exposure and contrast) then maybe its fine (and maybe not), but as soon as you get into features of LR that are more CPU intensive (for example brushing, spot healing, lens corrections, panoramas, HDR), I'm very skeptical that you will get good performance. The fact that it has a 3000x2000 monitor (about 3 times more pixels than a standard HD screen at 1920x1080) will also cause additional slowness.
On the Surface Books 2's i5 is the make/model. There is only one processor option in the I5 line and you are correct it is the one linked above.
I love the idea of being able to use pressure sensitive pen for local adjustments but I think I will just stick with my current Macbook Pro. I really want to like the Surface concept and I could stand to get reacquainted with Windows but I will stick with what is already working well.
