In the past week, since the Surface Laptop got released, I keep seeing reviews directly and indirectly about Windows 10 S, and it is just painful to see how clueless these so called tech bloggers are about the topic they are writing about, so let me try to clean this mess up.
As we are getting closer to possibly the biggest gaming event of the year, E3, I was thinking a bit about what I’d like to see, and I can tell it in advance, that it’s not going to be an article about games to look forward to.
Yesterday Microsoft announced yet another new Surface, the new Surface Pro in the family, still without an USB-C port, even though Apple already went all-in on the standard and most of the OEMs at least provide the port for those who want to use it.
I’d like to talk about some of the aspects of it with the hope of cleaning up the topic a little bit.
Tomorrow Microsoft is holding an event in Shanghai where they will most likely unveil a refreshed Surface Pro with Intel’s 7th gen Kaby Lake CPU and a set of accessories (Pen and Touch Cover) that will likely match the colors introduced by the Surface Laptop.
