Microsoft Surface Book 2, Surface Pro 5 might skip April event

Microsoft Surface Book 2, Surface Pro 5 might skip April event

Forget the Surface Phone, there might not even be a new Surface Book or Surface Pro. At least not in Microsoft's Spring event next month. Given what the Surface Book 2 is rumored to be, which is quite different from its predecessor, there might be no tears shed. Microsoft does have a new Surface device prepared, however, though what exactly that will be is still anyone's guess.

Microsoft Surface Book 2 might just be a regular notebook

Microsoft Surface Book 2 might just be a regular notebook

If you were planning on someday trading in your Surface Book for its successor, better hang on to that 2-in-1 computer. It might become a piece of history now. Although the quirky notebook has its fair share of critics, the Microsoft Surface Book was still generally received with thumbs up. It, however, didn’t exactly sell as well because of its high price tag. And so Microsoft will supposedly cut down costs with the Surface Book 2 and it does so by cutting out the device’s most distinctive feature.

Don’t buy this new Surface Book

Don’t buy this new Surface Book

Microsoft has quietly added a new Surface Book to its line-up, but even with higher performance it's hard to recommend the $3,000 2-in-1. Unlike the original Surface Book reveal - and, indeed, the addition of the Surface Book with Performance Base to the range back in October last year, this new iteration has raised nary a peep from Microsoft. That's despite it having some of the highest specifications we've seen from the hybrid 2-in-1 to-date.

Surface Pro 4, Surface Book get extended holiday price cut

Surface Pro 4, Surface Book get extended holiday price cut

Christmas may be over (at least for those who celebrated it), but the sales and promos live on. Case in point, Microsoft has just extended its holiday season price cut for its two most powerful portable "tablet that can replace your laptop", saving buyers as much as $400, depending on the model. That said, some models are already marked as out of stock, with no replenishments in sight. This gives the promo a bit of a "clearance sale" feel, perhaps hinting that a new gen model is just around the corner.

Sorry Apple, Microsoft is stealing your MacBook users

Sorry Apple, Microsoft is stealing your MacBook users

Microsoft would like nothing more than to poach MacBook owners from Apple, and according to the company it's doing that in greater numbers than ever. Coming on the heels of a campaign intended to get MacBook owners away from macOS and onto a new Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book, Microsoft now says that "more people are switching from Macs to Surface than ever before." Why so many? The company says it's down to two big things.

Surface Book with Performance Base Review

Surface Book with Performance Base Review

The Surface Book was one of Microsoft's best-kept secrets last year, but the company isn't holding back when it comes to talking up its Performance Base upgrade. Landing in time for the holidays, the new model is actually only 50-percent changed: while the screen-turned-tablet is the same as before, the keyboard section has been squeezed full of extra graphics potency and more battery life. That doesn't come cheap, mind, with this newest model starting at $2,399.

Sales have managed to outpace not only Apple's competitors, but also the previous 12-inch MacBook.

Surface Dial support coming to Surface Pro 4, Surface Book

As interesting as the Surface Studio is, especially for artists, it is made even more interesting by the Surface Dial accessory. But while the Surface Studio won’t be shipping until December, the Dial will actually be available starting November 10. Why the advance party, you might ask? Because you can actually use it with any Windows 10. But even better, if you already have a Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book, you will even be able to use it on those two’s displays.

Surface Book packing Core i5, 128GB SSD and NVIDIA graphics returns

Surface Book packing Core i5, 128GB SSD and NVIDIA graphics returns

Back when the Surface Book first launched Microsoft was offering a model that had an Intel Core i5 processor, 128GB SSD, and the discrete NVIDIA graphics card. That particular model was the lowest priced version of the Surface Book to bring that NVIDIA dGPU and as such, it turned out to be very popular. Microsoft said at the time that it had only made a limited number of that model and it sold out quickly. Undoubtedly, Microsoft was hoping that people would instead opt for a more expensive version of the Surface Book with dGPU.
