Microsoft Surface Pro 5 might be less of an upgrade than expected
Those of you excited about the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 may want to temper your expectations just a bit.
If the latest rumor is any indication, the Surface Pro 5 will be less of an upgrade and more of a slight revision. The information comes via a tweet, recently posted by tech journalist Paul Thurrott, which states that the upcoming device is "nothing dramatic." Thurrott claims that the Surface Pro 5 will feature a seventh-generation Kaby Lake processor but no other notable changes.
In a later tweet, Thurrott mentions "someone who has seen [the Surface Pro 5]" as the source for his claim. He offers no other details, but does go so far as to call the new Surface Pro a "Surface Pro 4.5."
Microsoft has an event planned for this spring, but it is not known if the company will announce any details on the Surface Pro 5 or other devices. If it does, it should confirm whether this newly revealed info is correct. Until then, today's report should be treated as just another rumor.
