What to expect from today’s Surface event

Microsoft Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2 Leak Tips Specifications and Price Ahead of Launch

The base Surface Pro 6 is expected to feature 4GB of RAM and an Intel Core m3 CPU.

Microsoft is expected to unveil newer versions of the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop on Tuesday. As a means for both the Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Pro 6 to both connect to external displays, and to charge them.

Frankly, I'm not sure if such minimal changes warrant giving the name Surface Pro 6 to. Interestingly, none of the devices will reportedly be equipped with USB Type-C ports. Having been criticized roundly in 2017 for offering a minor update to the Surface Pro 4 with the Surface Pro (2017), Microsoft is more-or-less doing exactly the same thing again, at least as far as the physical chassis and design are concerned. However, popular tipster Ronald Quandt has in a tweet predicted that the Surface Pro 6 will carry the same price as the Surface Pro, which was launched past year. Instead, Laptop 2 and Pro 6 will retain the mini DisplayPort, Surface Connector, and USB-A ports found on previous models. As per a WinFuture report, Microsoft will launch the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 with some specification bumps. The original model which launched in December 2016 received some criticism for its high price and underpowered specs, and we hope to see a new version today with the latest Intel processors and more powerful GPUs. This rumor would confirm what was seen in the leaked images of the Surface Laptop 2 from MySmartPrice last month showing no USB-C port. Hopefully, however, this is all prelude to some price cuts that bring the Surface Laptop down to a price worth paying for.

SC lifts ban on women entering Sabarimala
Religion, it must be remembered, has been used far too long as a tool to deny women an equal footing in society. The Supreme Court today allowed entry of women of all ages into Sabarimala temple in Kerala .

The lack of ports is something you're either willing to live with or not, but the ongoing lack of USB-C support is just laziness at this point.

We've not seen any significant leaks of the Surface Studio 2 just yet, but the time is right for an update. It will happen on October 16th, and Microsoft says Surface is going "back to black". This version of the device will also likely come in black.

Microsoft already had a black Surface years ago, but for the past five years it only offered silver models.
