Next month, Microsoft might be dashing the hopes of Surface fans. For one, its Surface Pro 5 might just be a small, incremental step up from the Surface Pro 4 launched nearly two years ago. For another, the Surface Book 2 might no longer be a convertible but a regular "Windows Cloud" clamshell laptop. Disheartening as those rumors might be, it will give Microsoft's competitors a chance to pick up where it left off, and in more varied, and perhaps creative, ways. Chuwi, who has been flooding the market with such devices, has just shown off its upcoming SurBooks at the Hong Kong Global Soruces Fair and, as the rather odd name implies, it will try to take on the Microsoft Surface Book.
