    P.s. Maybe Microsoft will release an updated Surface Pro 5.1 at their show with a quad core?

    They claim 5 hours of use, up from 3 hours. So a bit over 1.5 times longer than before. Not sure what real world battery life will be at moderate brightness, but at least it's improved quite a bit.

    So if anyone wants some pure entertainment, bop over to MacRumors and read the thread on the Surface Book 2 announcement. You will want to stock up on popcorn and some adult beverages and guarantee its entertaining. You just have to be prepared for every 5th post to be some form of "Windows sucks".

    Almost 90% are nopes.
    Well one thing is sure.
    MS don't give a damm to customer feedback despite all situasion with interwew at media saying the opposite in front of the camera.

    That's the only truth.

    WTF MS!!

    Really emparising.

    Well besides lack of Thunderbolt one think also bother me a lot is lack of Nvidia at i5/8/256 configouration

    Why MS Why.

    You don't need everyone i7 but 1050 would have been much much better choice than HD620 and huge advantage of having Pascal GPU.

    I was hoping for at least 1 usb C port at clipboard MS totaly disapointed me on that aspect.

    As for the price in Europe i don't give any hope would be tempting at all:p
