Yet another leak has surfaced surrounding Microsoft's upcoming Surface Laptop 4, which is expected to launch with a design very similar to the Surface Laptop 3, as well as both Intel and AMD hardware options. According to the latest report, the Surface Laptop 4 option featuring AMD hardware will sport special 'Surface Edition' processors.

Surface Duo 2 could finally have upgrades it needed last year

Surface Duo 2 could finally have upgrades it needed last year

Some say that timing is everything and the Microsoft Surface Duo is perhaps a testament to that. Had it launched a year earlier than it did, some of its lapses wouldn't have been so glaring, especially in the hardware department. Those could be addressed by a Surface Duo 2 and, judging by some job listings, Microsoft might indeed be heading in that direction, though, again, its success will depend on when the Surface Duo 2 will hit the market.

Surface Duo Android 11 update coming just before Android 12 launch

Surface Duo Android 11 update coming just before Android 12 launch

Microsoft has had many hardware ambitions, few of which actually bore long-lasting fruits. It's quite reasonable, then, that some were cautiously optimistic about its most ambitious one yet, the dual-screen Surface Duo. It was also unsurprising when Microsoft's actual implementation and post-sales performance left much to be desired, like its promised regular updates for the Android device. Case in point is the Android 11 that is still fortunately coming but probably just a month before Android 12 becomes available.

Microsoft drops price on Surface Duo as foldable gets international launch

It's already been a fairly big week for the Surface Duo, as the dual-screen Android device saw its price drop significantly at places like Best Buy and Amazon. Next week will be an even bigger one for the Surface Duo, as Microsoft has confirmed that it'll finally be launching internationally. The Surface Duo is heading to a number of new countries next week, and here in the US, it looks like Microsoft has decided on its own price drop for the device.

Surface Duo gets a hefty discount this week

Surface Duo gets a hefty discount this week

The Surface Duo is an intriguing double-screen, tablet/smartphone hybrid, but its starting price of $1400 definitely puts it outside the realm of affordability for a lot of people. Those who are interested in a Surface Duo but don't want to shell out full price should check out Best Buy or Amazon, where the device is currently on offer at a hefty discount. This applies to both the 128GB and 256GB models, but of course, there's something of a catch if you want to get the full discount - at least in regards to Best Buy.

Surface Pro 7 ad throws shade at MacBook Pro, misses the point

Surface Pro 7 ad throws shade at MacBook Pro, misses the point

The Surface Pro 2-in-1 detachable tablet was arguably a stroke of genius and a gold mine for Microsoft but the company may have already milked the cow dry. The product line has seen very little significant innovation or upgrade in the past generations and the Surface Pro 8 doesn't sound like something terribly exciting either. Still, Microsoft seems quite insistent on pitting the current Surface Pro 7 against the MacBook Pro and while it does make some strong arguments, it might have also missed the point, especially with Apple's latest iteration.

Surface Pro 7+ revealed with solid upgrades that you (probably) can’t have

Surface Pro 7+ revealed with solid upgrades that you (probably) can’t have

Microsoft served up something of a surprise this morning by announcing the Surface Pro 7+. This new device has a lot of similarities with the previously-released Surface Pro 7, but Microsoft has made a few key upgrades with the Surface Pro 7+. Unfortunately, we regular consumers aren't going to be able to pick one of these up right away, as Microsoft has two distinct markets in mind for the Surface Pro 7+ and we're in neither of them.

Surface Pro 8 price leak reveals an important lineup change

Surface Pro 8 price leak reveals an important lineup change

It's CES 2021 this week, kicking off a flood of new product announcements both during the event as well as long after it. One of those that may be happening this month is Microsoft's debut of its next-gen Surface products, namely its pro tablets and laptops. Leaks about the Surface Pro 8 and Surface Laptop 4 haven't exactly been encouraging but this latest leak shows at least one change that could be a bit of a positive.

Microsoft Surface and servers may be next to dump Intel for in-house ARM chips

Microsoft Surface and servers may be next to dump Intel for in-house ARM chips

Intel's breakup with Apple may only be the start of the chip-maker's problems, with Microsoft rumored to be planning a similar strike out for independence with its own processor designs. While Intel's long-standing rivalry with AMD has given the computing world two main choices for the past decades, industry heavyweights are increasingly looking to Arm-based chips as an alternative.

Surface Pro 8 configuration options may have an LTE disappointment

Surface Pro 8 configuration options may have an LTE disappointment

Although it still enjoys some popularity as Microsoft's premier hardware product line, it has been quite a while since it has made a big change for its Surface products, especially the oldest of them all, the Surface Pro. It seems that 2021 won't be any different, at least during the early months when Microsoft is expected to launch its next line of portable computers. But while the next-gen Surface Pro 8 will likely see some welcome upgrades, a new leak hints that it won't be spread equally when it comes to LTE support.

Surface Duo availability expanding (for better or worse)

Surface Duo availability expanding (for better or worse)

Microsoft suggested today that they'd be increasing availability for Surface Duo in the year 2021. Back in October of 2019, Microsoft first revealed the Surface Duo (and the Surface Neo), and in August of 2020 the Surface Duo was released on a relatively limited basis. According to Microsoft Devices VP Pete Kyriacou, "since introducing Surface Duo in August of 2020, people have asked when we would make this product available outside the US."

Surface Pro 8, Surface Laptop 4 leaks hint at modest upgrades

Surface Pro 8, Surface Laptop 4 leaks hint at modest upgrades

With all that's happening in the Mac market the past weeks, it's almost too easy to forget other manufacturers have their own new wares to show. Intel is, of course, making sure no one forgets by making a lot of noise about its 11th-gen processors and new Intel Iris Xe graphics. One company that has been unusually silent, however, is Microsoft, whose line of Surface products used to be the talk of the PC town. Microsoft seems to be taking a more modest strategy if these leaked photos and information about its upcoming Surface computers are anything to go by.
