Commercial Surface Laptop with Windows 10 Pro now available

Commercial Surface Laptop with Windows 10 Pro now available

The Surface Laptop, love it or hate it, comes with a big restriction: Windows 10 S. This version of Windows 10 is designed to provide a secure experience, but in providing that security Microsoft introduced a big restriction. Users are only able to download software from the Microsoft Store on Windows 10 S; they can't grab a download from any given website. A new Surface Laptop option changes that.

Surface Book 2 15-inch goes up for pre-order in 17 new markets

Surface Book 2 15-inch goes up for pre-order in 17 new markets

The Surface Book 2 is a pretty solid piece of hardware, assuming you've got the money to put down for one. The device is still relatively young, having only launched back in November, and thus far, only its 13-inch models have been available in most regions. That all changes today, as Microsoft has announced that it's bringing the 15-inch Surface Book 2 to 17 new markets.

Microsoft Andromeda folding tablet would be an Android dream

Microsoft Andromeda folding tablet would be an Android dream

A set of renders of the Microsoft Andromeda tablet appeared this morning, and it looks amazing. The wallpaper the designer used got me thinking: what would it be like to have this device running iOS? And more realistically, what would it be like to have a device like this running Android?

NFL renews Microsoft Surface deal for another year

NFL renews Microsoft Surface deal for another year

It's hard to believe five years have passed since Microsoft struck a deal with the NFL over its Surface tablet, but that is indeed the case. The contract wasn't without its problems -- the Surface was called an iPad on more than one occasion -- but that hasn't prevented a contract renewal between the two companies.

Chuwi SurBook Mini to fill the Surface-shaped hole in your heart

Chuwi SurBook Mini to fill the Surface-shaped hole in your heart

There were rumors that Microsoft would soon be axing the Surface line, which were debunked by the unveiling of the Surface Book 2. But for one line of Surface devices, the end came quite some time ago. The non-Pro Surface 2-in-1 tablet never got a version 4, even while the Surface Pro now has its 5th “not Surface Pro 5” generation. It’s unlikely Microsoft will ever go down that road ever again, but if you’re really looking for Surface 3 successor, then you might want to consider Chuwi’s SurBook successor, the unsurprisingly named SurBook Mini.

Microsoft fires back at Consumer Reports’ Surface slight

Microsoft fires back at Consumer Reports’ Surface slight

Microsoft has pushed back at Consumer Reports' decision to strip the Surface range of its "recommended" award, arguing that its actual reliability is much better than was claimed. Consumer Reports had previously granted both the Surface Laptop and the Surface Book its coveted recommendation, based on factors such as performance and design. However, it backtracked after surveys of existing Surface owners reported significantly higher problems with their laptops and tablets compared to the rest of the industry.

Microsoft Surface vs Consumer Reports: What you need to know

Microsoft Surface vs Consumer Reports: What you need to know

Microsoft might be reconsidering its Consumer Reports subscription today, with the news that the Surface Laptop and Surface Book have both been stripped of their "recommended" status. Concerns about reliability of the Surface line-up as a whole have prompted the review organization to backtrack on its awards, in addition to suggesting that the Surface Pro shouldn't be among your top considerations for a 2-in-1 hybrid, either. Microsoft is suitably outraged, as you'd expect, and indeed there are some big questions around just what Consumer Reports is testing and how they're doing that.

However, Consumer Reports says it also applies to the Surface Pro released earlier in the year.
