Microsoft's next Surface Book laptop could abandon its most radical feature

Microsoft's next Surface Book laptop could abandon its most radical feature

Nonetheless, Surface Pro 5 is not only expected to boast of the Intel Kaby Lake processor as it will come with many other impressive specs and features that will further give it an upper hand over the iPad Pro 2.

As anticipation is gradually building up, a slew of rumors and reports tried to paint a picture of what to expect and the latest ones hint at an interesting twist. After all, it is alleged that the Surface Pro 5 will pack the latest Intel processor, the Kaby Lake, which, in turn, is considered to be much better than that of the iPad Pro 2's rumored A10X chipset. According to DigiTimes, who are not really that credible (although some of their reports have been accurate in the past), Microsoft might be introducing a lower starting price for the upcoming Surface Book 2.

It is also said that the Surface Pro 5 will provide its users with a full desktop experience as the Windows 10 update is said to introduce the Continuum feature that will enable mobile devices, such as the Surface Pro 5, to run desktop-like applications.

This presumption stems from a recent trailer for Alien: Covenant that seemingly shows a new Microsoft Surface device. There are also rumors that the Microsoft Surface Book 2 could roll out in March 2017, Tech Radar reported. After Intel's confirmation that their seventh-generation Kaby Lake chip is ready for production, the experts started speculating that Surface Book successor is just a month or two away from being launched.

Another Jewish center evacuated after bomb threat
West Hartford - Jewish community centers in CT and Kentucky were the latest targets of separate bomb threats this week. On Tuesday, bomb threats hit JCCs and day schools in Chicago, Milwaukee and New York's greater Rochester area.

As the fans wait impatiently about the Microsoft Surface Book 2 release date update, the company is not only keeping its launch information under tight wraps, but also its specs and price range.

Consequently, speculation is rife that the trailer is teasing the upcoming Surface Pro 5 with AMD Ryzen under the hood. Rumors also hinted at a Q1 release, which means that the Surface Pro 5 could make its debut as soon as this month.

Microsoft and Intel have had a long working relationship, with previous Surface Pro devices packing the latter's Core i3, i5 and i7 chips. A rechargeable Surface Pen and exciting new Keyboard base are to be part of the new Surface Pro 5. Of course, these are but speculations at this point, so do take these with a grain of salt. First, because the original Surface Book's premium price was turning people off.
