A recent report claims Microsoft has already entered mass production for the new Surface Book 2.
There are a couple of reasons given for this abrupt turnaround.
Samsung announced the Galaxy Book at the Mobile World Congress 2017, it is a Windows 10 tablet that is set to take on the Microsoft Surface Pro 4.
The Surface Book 2 will also include a lower price, which will help the device compete against other premium laptops.
Microsoft Surface Pro 5 speculation remains fairly cold with regard to actual leaks, but the general consensus among tech enthusiasts is that the Surface Pro 4 successor's debut will tie in to the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update.
The Microsoft Surface Book was one of the most successful PC devices of a year ago. The new Surface Book 2 price will start at $1,000 on release. Customers had a hard time choosing between a Surface tablet device and a Surface Book device.
According to BGR, Microsoft Company is planning to announce the new Microsoft Surface Book 2 at the end of March or April. Though magnetic as well, the current Surface Pen is only powered by a single AAAA battery.
However, customers might be surprised as it was not the Microsoft Surface Book 2 that they were expecting. Microsoft recently slashed the entry price down to $1,299, as it's looking to clear inventory.
One more morsel of information from the Surface sources was that the Surface Pro is still attractive to portable PC buyers, with a year-on-year shipment growth of 20 per cent. It will likely feature a 13.5-inch display and chassis made of magnesium-aluminum alloy.
You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that consumers and Businesses alike hate flaky companies constantly shifting strategies like season-to-season fashion. Instead, Microsoft apparently adopted the traditional clamshell design for the device instead. And yes, it's the question of the day. However, it will be interesting to see what kind of hinge Microsoft employs in the new machine design, and if it will afford "yoga-like" flexibility, for example.
