But it seems those plans may stretch beyond tablets, laptops, and even audio products, with Surface chief Panos Panay hinting there may be a lot more interesting releases planned for the future.

Microsoft Just Announced Great Upgrades to a Whole Bunch of Its Computers

Microsoft Surface Go Is a Cheap, Tiny Tablet That Might Just Beat the iPad

It’s really, really hard to find a good Microsoft Windows device for under £500. There are some diamonds in the rough — devices that sacrifice display quality or form or speed to get the price way down. Yet until today there was no clear winner. Microsoft’s new Surface Go could change that. Read More >>

Microsoft Surface Laptop, One Year Later

When the Surface Laptop was released a year ago, it immediately struck me as the Microsoft-built computer I’d been waiting for. You see, I’ve always admired the design of all of Microsoft’s Surface products, but at the same time felt that they weren’t exactly for me. The keyboard cover on the Surface Pro is just too crappy to write blog posts on; the SurfaceBook, while impressively designed with its fancy detachable hinge mechanism, is simply too bulky a machine for me to port around everywhere; and as for the Surface Studio — I don’t even know what the hell I would do with it besides play a very expensive game of touchscreen tic-tac-toe.

A Budget Surface Might Just Do the Trick

Microsoft’s Surface line of Windows 10 PCs have mostly been marketed as premium devices. But according to a new Bloomberg report, the company is planning to bring back a good ol’ fashioned cheap Surface, most likely to get in on some of that sweet sweet iPad money Apple’s been raking in (or to give us something to buy if we can’t afford its giant 4K touchscreen).

Microsoft’s Big Ideas Are Awesome, But When Does Reality Catch Up With the Tech?

Today, Microsoft announced the Surface Hub 2, and like many of the company’s previous Surface products, it offers a tantalising view into a future filled with glorious touchscreen devices and effortless workplace collaboration. It looks totally sweet, and I’d love to have one on my wall at home right now. But after seeing multiple Surface generations come and go, I’m still wondering when all this fantastic tech becomes something that living up to its promise. Read More >>

Finally, a Chrome Tablet Worth Getting Excited About

Companies keep trying to make tablets for education happen. Two weeks ago, Acer announced the Chromebook Tab 10, a confusingly named slate running Chrome OS that was designed with students and teachers in mind. Then Apple followed that up with a revamped iPad featuring some new education apps and Apple Pencil support. But to me, neither of these devices truly hit the spot, because they still lack the one feature you need for real productivity: a keyboard. Read More >>

Microsoft Is Going to Stop Cramming Windows 10S Down People’s Throats

When Microsoft introduced Windows 10S last year, I was deeply concerned. If you didn’t think too hard about it, it kind of sounded like a good idea: a lightweight version of regular Windows 10, designed for systems without a tonne horsepower, and a potentially competitive alternative to affordable Chromebooks, which have become a big hit and in the education market. Sounds OK so far, right? Read More >>

Microsoft Surface Books Join Brexit Price Pileup

Any tech mavericks looking to buy one of Microsoft's Surface Book tablet/laptop hybrids are the latest victims of the international currency market's reaction to the Brexit vote, with Microsoft confirming that it's added over 10 per cent to the RRP of the consumer hardware range because of that thing to do with men in suits and graphs.
