Microsoft Introduces Refreshed Surface Lineup, With Black Editions

Microsoft is looking to breathe new life into their Surface line-up this year, as evidenced by today's Surface-focused event. Having been criticized roundly in 2017 for offering a minor update to the Surface Pro 4 with the Surface Pro (2017), Microsoft is more-or-less doing exactly the same thing again, at least as far as the physical chassis and design are concerned.
Microsoft has announced the all-new Surface Pro 6 and it is packing a lot more performance than its predecessor and it thanks to the new quad-core processor from Intel. Just like the Surface Pro 6, the Surface Laptop doesn't come with an USB-C port, which is a bit disappointing. These days, it's a true laptop alternative, and as you'd expect, the Surface Pro 6 is the most powerful version yet. The company may also bring the successor to the Surface Laptop that debuted in May previous year and was launched in India last month. It will be interesting to see how a black Surface will compare to the silver ones. The odd part is that the Surface Book 2 and Surface Go devices both have USB-C ports and not offering them on the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop would be a unusual omission. Notably, there will be no 4GB RAM variant in the new lineup, as per the report. As for the Surface Pro 6, it will start at $899 for the model with a Core i5 processor.
It is also claimed that storage will be provided by an SSD with 128GB on-board. Its successor, the Surface Studio 2, offers improved graphics performance and Microsoft says it's the fastest Surface device ever made. Meanwhile, there are some changes in terms of the operating system. Like the Surface Laptop 2, the device will be available with the consumer version of Windows 10 in S-Mode. Users will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 Home for free, but not to Windows 10 Professional.
According to sources, it's highly likely that Microsoft will simply be using its proprietary DisplayPort and Surface Connector combo.
The Surface Laptop 2 starts at $999, and will be available from the 16th October. This 2-in-1 format is aimed at people like doctors, pilots and students who need tablets for note-taking or reading, but a laptop for full functionality.
