Rumors surrounding a new Surface Book and Surface Book 2 have been circulating for a little while, and now there appears to be some validity to the rumor too.
Digitimes is quoting sources who says that the Surface Book 2 will be released in April 2017, after seeing its originally intended 2016 launch delayed, simply because the upcoming new 14nm Intel Kaby Lake processor that the Surface Book 2 is rumored to utilize won’t become available before the end of 2016.
The same sources also claims that before the Surface Book 2 is launched next year, an upgraded original 13.5-inch Surface Book with improved processor performance will be launched in Q3 2016.
In spite of this, we can’t expect prices to drop very much on the Surface Book, since the components are expensive. Though an occasional Surface Book sale from Microsoft on their flagship Windows 10 tablet have been witnessed.
