    If you Dale'd a device it means returned.

    Go through @dsrauss postings and you'll soon realize that his "disease"is chronic.

    Yes, I'm happy to see you and that is a Sony Xperia in my pocket

    They varied from the Surface Connector for the Surface 3, which uses a micro-USB connector, with an added power indicator. So there is precedent for them doing so. I suspect that standard connections cost less, so I hope there is a business case for the change.

    I mean from an engineering standpoint USB-C should allow the device to be thinner. If they don't include TB3, I just don't know what to think of MS devices anymore.

    I tried Skyping the other day but the person on the other end couldn't hear me. I did the echo microphone test and it seemed to work fine. The person on the other end says their speakers were working fine.
    Could there be some bug on my end?

    I'd bet big that we'll see usb-c on the next upgrade. I think the current connector is there because they needed that functionality, didn't have the time to add it and promised the S4 to work with S3 accessories. Be nice if they removed the current three connectors and gave use three usb-c.

    Since SP5 shouldn't see the light of day until Christmas (at soonest) it would be a colossal failure to not go USB-C (preferably Thunderbolt 3) for everything, and throw a USB-A adapter in the box (along with a coupon for a free keyboard of the owners's color choice - hint hint).

    And how about Surface Complete to boot; hey, a guy can dream, can't he...(or is this pure fantasy)...

    And, since I am so deep in fantasy land, cull the herd to:

    Surface 5 - 11" with Core M or i3
    Surface Pro 5 - 13" (no bezels) Core i5 & i7 (15W)
    Surface Book II - 15" (no bezels) Core i5 15W up to full power i7; dGPU

    I know Microsoft wants to keep current Pro items compatible so I would like to see a Surface Pro connector to USB-C adapter so you could keep using the current dock if they move to only USB-C connectors on the Surface Pro 5.

    Not surprisingly, the 1TB SP4 blows my previous 512GB SP4 out of the water ...

    In real life experience, I probably woundn't feel any faster though
