Although there is nothing huge to mention about the Microsoft Surface Pro 5, definitely one can not afford to keep his or her eyes off what has been revealed.
Previous reports have claimed that there will be no Surface Book 2 at the event, this is the high-end laptop that Microsoft sells to fight the MacBook Pro. Longtime Microsoft pundit Paul Thurrott has some news about the Surface Pro 5, an update he says will change "nothing dramatic" about the convertible. As always, take this with a grain of salt, because even if this is what Microsoft is planning right now, the composition of the Surface Pro 5 could very well change by the time we get to release.
The next iterations of Surface Pro and Surface Book are both expected to sport a host of important upgrades, compared to their current predecessor offerings, such as faster processing and more efficient use of the battery power. It's now spring and technology blogger Paul Thurrott has revealed what could be the first details for the Surface Pro 5.
Previously, Microsoft has said that it would ensure that the Surface Pro 3 power adapters, Type Covers and docks will be fully compatible with the Pro 4. It's hard to imagine that Microsoft wouldn't be making the switch to USB Type-C with the SP5, regardless of what type of power connector is used.
When it comes to the new Surface Phone, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said that the rumored device could be "the ultimate mobile device". As it turned out, the Surface Pro 5 made no appearance, although the Surface Studio all-in-one PC and a Surface Book refresh were announced.
Predecessors Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and the first Book are already almost two years old.
