I bought a new Surface with the Surface Plus program | On MSFT

Surface Plus

I purchased the Surface Type Cover and pre-ordered the Surface Pen separately, so those items are not included in my monthly payments. I am a Surface Pro fan and I look forward to being able to get the next new Surface Pro device when it comes out. I may choose to get the next iteration of the Surface Book or maybe the next Surface Laptop, but the point is, I have options with the Surface Plus Program. The Surface Plus Program gives you a way to get what you want.

Check out the official website for more information about the Surface Plus program.

Microsoft Surface Book 2 and all there is to know about it

The technology giant is reportedly working on launching its latest Surface Book 2 device towards the end of this year.

If reports are believed to be true, then the upcoming device will most probably sport a 13.5-inch display with 3,840 x 2,160-pixel resolution and support for 4K-viewing as well. Microsoft is also apparently working on a technology that will enable its fans to experience different trends such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and others. The upcoming device won’t fall anywhere under the $1,000 price-tag for sure. The next big highlight in Microsoft’s upcoming Surface Book 2 is its motherboard. It appears like the device will be powered by the latest version of #Kaby Lake processor. Moreover, the Kaby Lake architecture will necessarily be based on quad-core processors as well.

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

Microsoft Surface Book with Performance Base

Microsoft Surface Book with Performance Base

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.

The Surface Book and the Surface Pro 4, which both launched at the same time, is over a year old. In the fast-paced, high turnover age of devices today, that’s already way too old. Since Microsoft announced the Surface Studio late last year instead, there was a bit of hope that it would announce new tablets at its Spring hardware event next month. Emphasis on “was”.

Sources are supposedly silent on both the Surface Book 2 and the Surface Pro 5. Or  to be more specific, sources are saying that the Surface Book 2 is not yet ready for Spring. But Microsoft is also expected to announce new devices that will showcase the upcoming major update to Windows 10, a.k.a. the Creators Update. The Surface Studio, which is as creator-oriented as you can get, is already out of the question. So what else could it be?
