It's believed Microsoft will make the change to increase Surface Book sales and better differentiate the device from the Surface Pro. The cheapest Surface Pro 4, for example, is $899 down from its original $999 asking price. The problem is that it's now overpriced and that early adopters got burnt with a nightmare "Sleep of Death" bug that all but killed any sales momentum dead in its tracks.

Fans are eagerly anticipating the release of Microsoft Surface Phone which will be powered by Snapdragon 835 CPU with a 5.7-inch screen display according to a report by Trusted Reviews. The Japan-based news site cited sources from the company's upstream supply chain.

Microsoft's Surface Book is definitely one of the most unique looking Windows machine out there in the market.

Along with a new Surface Book, Microsoft is also thought to be working on a new version of its Surface Pro device. The company recently released a Microsoft Surface Book 2 update in the press even starring the Surface Studio all-in-one desktop.

The next-generation notebook features a 13.5-inch display and a magnesium-aluminum chassis.

When Microsoft launched the first edition of their Surface Book laptop, it was a premiere in the area of portable computers, at least when it came to design. The clamshell design is expected to return because of issues with positioning the Surface Books within Microsoft's full product lineup.

The complex hinge design - which includes a dedicated button on the keyboard to release the display before it can be detached - undoubtedly adds to the considerable cost of the Surface Book. In fact, given the April to June spread for the Surface Pro 3, June might be one month worth keeping an eye on. It would expose Microsoft's confidence in itself for hardware as being paper thin.

Microsoft has done a good job of refreshing its Surface Book product line.
