Don't expect the Surface Book 2, Surface Pro 5, or even a Surface Phone at Microsoft's event this week, but do expect its answer to Google's Chromebook. Anticipation for what the software giant will do next with its premium Surface range has never been higher, not least because it was a disappointing glitch in an otherwise healthy financial quarter.
