    Dale's Top Ten:

    1 - 5. Full 4-lane Thunderbolt 3 on ALL Surface devices. This is the only thing standing between excellence and perfection - I can't even name another modern powerful laptop/tablet that DOESN'T have Thunderbolt 3.

    6. Surface Courier (folding tablet the size of Galaxy Note 8 but 50% thicker)

    7. Wacom EMR (I know, dreaming like the guy in Armageddon who wants to bring back 8 track tapes)

    8. A siloed pen!

    9. Optional keyboard for Surface Book that is ALL BATTERY

    10. No bezels!

    There was a comment on the sub-reddit that really caught my eye - merger of the Surface Pro and Surface Book lines. Surface Pro gets a performance base option; Surface Book Clipboard gets a kickstand and Type Cover option, so it is basically a line of laptops from 12.3-15.

    Yeah, Microsoft can extend their partnership with Samsung and license the S Pen! Hey, if I'm going to dream I might as well dream big!

    But I would be perfectly fine with the new Surface Pen. If it wasn't bugged. :D

    Never understood why this wasn't done out of the gate. Yoga or 360 hinge.

    You speak to my heart!

    I definitely like this idea! though I know it's never gonna happen

    Other things i'm interested in
    1. Better QA
    2. More options for Microsoft Complete (which really would be negated if they worked on # 1)
    3. Replaceable battery (doesn't have to be user replaceable, if they offered the service I could live with that
    4. Repair options for the screen/ HD upgrading etc. (HP has managed to do this in the x2, and if memory serves correct so has Dell in the 7000 series)
