Microsoft is holding a special Surface event on October 2 and the first leaks have started emerged. The most notable is that the Surface Laptop will get a sequel, but will also come in a slick new black color

With Microsoft’s Surface event locked in for October 2, the rumor mill has started to kick in and the first points to a new Surface Laptop 2 in a new black color. This is said to replace the current Graphite Gold in the line up while the Platinum, Burgundy and Cobalt Blue color options will continue. The next-generation Surface Book is also tipped to pick up the new color option.

The Surface Laptop 2 will continue with the same fundamental design and overall dimensions. This includes, sadly, persisting without a USB-C port with Microsoft looking as though it will skip it for at least another 12 months. It will, however, get a refresh to Intel’s 8th gen silicon that should help to give it a decent boost in performance and battery life. RAM and storage options are also expected to remain at up to 16 GB and 1 TB, respectively.

One other feature that is expected to continue on the Surface Laptop 2 is Microsoft’s penchant for covering its keyboard surrounds with Alcantara fabric. Alcantara is widely used in car interiors and luxury products, but like any fabric, is prone to getting discolored if not regularly cleaned. There are plenty of images on the web of the Platinum colored models looking pretty putrid. The new black color should help mask this.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
