    I hope it’s a substantial refresh

    So almost definitely we have

    Surface Pro X 2
    Surface Laptop “Economy Edition”

    leaving potentially

    Surface Pro 8 (redesign or yet another mouse fart refresh)
    Surface Laptop 4
    Surface Go X
    Surface Studio 3
    Surface Neo

    Pleas don't encourage MS to do a Surface Go X - leave the WOA abomination for the Surface Pro X and give us one REAL Windows iPad...

    I don't see a go x at this point, away too soon after the G0 2 which it would nominally replace.

    Surface laptop 4 and Surface economy or whatever they call it, almost certainly.

    The Studio is way overdue for at least a spec bump.

    Unclear on a Pro X2. With the pro X we saw hints of it coming in Qualcomms dev channel months before it appeared . So far nothing like that yet, but its possible MS did considerably more customization of the 8cx platform this time and is keeping it under wraps this time.

    OTOH, nothing in the preview releases of support for non existent chip chipsets, again unlike with the Pro X where some code appeared for the existing WOA devices prior to release

    Whatever happened to this Surface Book thingy? Is that not due for a refresh? d'Oh!

    Personally I'd love to have a Surface Studio, but good grief, even the gen 1's don't really come down in price all that much in eBay. The cheapest one that doesn't have a cracked screen is still over $2000 :eek: Which is to say, even if they announce a refresh, I can tell I won't be buying one!

    I thought the Book refreshed with the Go2?

    Totally, it's even called the Surface Book 3. I guess given that we didn't get TB3 or a kickstand, my brain just denied that the refresh even happened.

    Well you should. Our Studio 2 is now about two years old and it's still spectacular to work on. Too bad I can't...!

    It is a bit too soon after the Go2, but you can't ignore the success and sales of the Go line. For as much trouble Microsoft has been having getting Windows on Arm to launch, an affordable focused Go X might be a far wiser course of action then a Pro X2.

    No GO X - just say NO! Sorry to beat the dead horse, but don't encourage MS to spoil the best Windows tablet out there by switching to WOA - to what purpose? Since MS obviously thinks WOA is a "Pro" device let them stay deluded and leave us the Surface Go for no compromise computing.

    When the original Go was released, one of MS' engineers, Cindy Martinez, did an introduction and she explained why they went with Pentium - at the 4:00 minute mark - they chose to stick with Intel for a no compromise device - that's now more true than ever with the M3 Go2!
