    LTE? Watching it without sound and Chinese subtitles. I saw 4G pop up a few times. Just guessing.

    So the new Surface Pro is official.
    Now with 13.5 h battery life, LTE option coming later this year, improved hinge, lighter weight, improved fan and better color display, Alcantara keyboards and most importantly a new pen with 4096 pressure levels

    Apparently there are fanless Core i5-Y and i7-Y versions along with fan powered i5/i7-U ?

    Besides 4096 pressure levels and tilt sensititivity , the pen has 21ms latency.

    At least the new dock gets USB-C.

    For a mid-term upgrade, this doesn't disappoint...

    Lots of questions; the edges are clearly more rounded / sculpted and they show the new pen magnetically stuck to the side. But two rounded shapes won't "hug" each other very well, so won't the pen be easily dislodged? Seems like a poor design choice...

    <<...Wow, the i5 version is fanless...>>

    ...I wonder about throttling, though. There are realities to thermal management that aren't easily overcome...

    So, they're finally starting to sell the Surface Studio outside US?
    Obviously, not in Italy! (Not that I care anymore... :D )
