It is possible Microsoft is working on a low-end variant of the Surface Book 2 for customers who don't want the 2-in-1 design - and that variant could likely be the $1,000 variant DigiTimes is talking about.

Microsoft Surface Book 2 is believed to priced at around $1000, which is 50% less than the starting price of the Microsoft Surface Book. The laptop will have the same 13.5-inch display and magnesium chassis as the current Surface Book.

During the Mobile World Congress 2017 held last month, Samsung revealed its Galaxy Book, a Windows 10 2-in-1 hybrid tablet that could rival Surface Pro 4 tablets from Microsoft. That is not really surprising-Microsoft has several generations of Surface Pro models under its belt, so why not keep the Surface Book line alive? As eye-catching and nifty as Surface Book's detachable tablet is, it's not actually supremely useful in real-life use. With the possibility of Microsoft coming up with the Surface Book 2 sometime next month, speculation is rife over the kind of features the new device would sport. Hence, Microsoft Surface Book 2 launch could coincide with the Windows 10 launch.

In October 2015 Microsoft's Corporate VP for Surface, Panos Panay, launched "Surface Book" at a special event in his typically excitable way to say that it was 2X more powerful than Apple's MacBook Pro.

US Supreme Court won't throw out Sen. Menendez charges
Menendez and Melgen have pleaded not guilty to the charges they faced in the 22-count indictment. The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear an appeal from New Jersey Sen.

Microsoft reportedly only sold half a million Surface Books in 2016 and this was caused by a the "catch 22" scenario of limited demand propping up prices by throttling any significant benefits that could have been harvested from production scaling.

The shipment is expected to start as early as April, sources from the upstream supply chain claim.

We are probably just a few weeks away from the release of Microsoft's upcoming Surface devices. It can not be charged by being placed on the side of Surface Studio display. It would expose Microsoft's confidence in itself for hardware as being paper thin. Check out more news about the Microsoft "Surface Book 2" in the video below. Instead of the 2-in-1 form factor, the device will now have a standard clamshell build. As a result of using a more traditional design, the engineering will be simpler.
