Microsoft Surface Book 2 might launch next month
No matter the operating system or hardware platform they use, convertibles seem to be the way of the future for those who need a mobile computing platform that offers excellent flexibility for a good price. While the devices that form Microsoft's Surface family do not come for a low price, they are very popular in the mid-range and premium sectors of the market. Although this information still has to be officially confirmed, it looks like Microsoft's Surface Book will get a successor in June.
Obviously known as Microsoft Surface Book 2 for the time being, this upcoming device is expected to feature a 4K display. Next to this feature, insiders expect to see USB Type-C connectivity and a next-gen Intel processor from the Kaby Lake lineup. However, these new chips are only expected to come out in the last part of the year.
Microsoft Surface Book 2 should show up just in time to compete with the upcoming MacBook Pro 2016. Its features might also include an updated Surface Pen, while the amount of memory and storage could increase.
