Sigh, no sign of a SP5 yet I see. Come on MS, don't discard us like your phone users.
At least they said "Adios" to phone users, this is abandonment by neglect...
Kaby Lake is very marginal of an improvement which may be the reason for this hold out. I am of the opinion they are waiting for a processor equally superior to the groundbreaking design they will use to become available.
However ,they neglected to say neglect. So, what's that called?lol.
I'm sure they wouldn't want customers to say adios to them.
Hold your hats! There is another (likely) Surface event. Next stop... China?! The cryptic tagline "will show the world what's next" likely means cutting edge and innovation. Time to get hype, folks, and wait and hope just that little bit longer.
China's a bit....odd....but that is where all the Surface Products are manufactured....so maybe that will play some part in it....like an assembly line theme or something. Or maybe they chose a new manufacturer like Foxconn. just picture the unveiling...."We're jumping for joy over the new Pro 5.....right into the suicide nets!"

This is most likely a global release of Surface hardware and their various versions (thus 'showing the world what's next'), with Surface Pro 5 as the only new hardware. Microsoft seems ready to release its latest hardware (SP5, SL, SB 2GB, Surface Studio, HaloLens, Xbox etc) in China through public records on China's CCC website (Chinese Compulsory Certificate). It would be exciting to see Surface Studio in more markets, I think @Azzart would love to hear that. I wonder whether a consumer Hololens or mixed reality headset from Microsoft is also around the corner.
Too late for that, I just spent €2200 for a Surface Book + Dock and I love it. I simply can't justify another 3000 bucks for another computer.
I'd expect one of two things at this event. Either a refresh of the Surface Pro 4 with Kabylake, or a new Surface Pro 5. Panos was just interviewed and stated the Surface Pro 5 would only be released when there was a good reason to do so i.e. it can be made significantly lighter, have improved battery life, etc.
Also, a VP for Microsoft was interviewed by Bloomberg and basically stated a new release was imminent for the Surface Pro line. It wasn't exactly a cryptic message, either. So I think it's safe to say SOMETHING Surface Pro will be released at this event.
