    On the most recent Windows Central podcast Daniel Rubino speculated that the October event will not be live-streamed. This further dampens my enthusiasm.

    And I was praying Panos was going to pull a fast one on us, like the Surface Book reveal and trot out those rumored all new design Surface Pro's...sigh...

    OK - so now here I sit waiting for October for what - a rehash of the SPro 17 LTE with an 8th Gen processor and "maybe" a USB-C to replace the mini-DP, why shouldn't I just go with the HP Elite 2X 1031?

    Because a week later you'll change your mind?

    First OLED introduced with 2019 iPad Pro and maybe-maybe 2021-2022 Surface lines and even then I really doubt.

    We are 2018 and even next month we won’t see thunderbolt type C.
    We are 2018 and even today MS is selling 128gb version of Surface Pro/Book/Surface Laptop.

    Seriously???

    128gb should had been eliminated 2-3 years now for even basic selling hardware configuration.

    MS rules

    Over production perhaps? Samsung, Toshiba and their uncles are producing so many that they offer them att basement prices to get rid of stock and Microsoft can't refuse a good bargain?

    But I too think that 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD should be some minimum configuration (said the gal who just purchased a 4 GB 64 GB eMMC Surface Go. Yes, I'm a hypocrite and I feel entitled to it.)

    128gb is fine for a secondary computer but if msft is aiming at your every day machine, I agree, 128gb is too low.

    OLED will probably be in the ipad this year as will usb-c which should scare msft some. I hope msft does TB3 because an external gpu dock is something a surface pro could really benefit from.

    @Kumabjorn - you KNOW it won't take a week to change my mind...

    @alextrela182 - it worked for MS' godfather Apple - look how long the base iPhone only had 16gb...

    @MSGaldenzi - the rumored USB-C and near bezel-less design of iPad Pro may be killer.

    It is a farce that it will be 2019 before a Surface laptop or tablet gets TB3 - and if they don't add it to the Surface Studio 2, it will be an embarrassing disgrace (much like putting a hybrid drive in the original Studio).

    No reason. But then, that was my recommendation a week ago. ;)
