Here's all the new Surface hardware Microsoft unveiled this afternoon

As for the new Surface Laptop 2, there isn't a ton of things to get excited about. Unfortunately, the device won't get USB Type-C ports will supposedly incorporate a mini-Display port, the Surface Connector, and the normal USB-A port.

Microsoft is expected to unveil its next Surface Pro tablet and Surface Laptop tomorrow, 2 October, during a dedicated hardware announcement event in NY. Just like the Surface Pro 6, the Surface Laptop doesn't come with an USB-C port, which is a bit disappointing.

Microsoft is most likely to unveil the new Windows 10 October 2018 update at its event later tonight.

Surface Laptop 2 will retain the form factor of the predecessor but will improve in terms of specifications. The odd part is that the Surface Book 2 and Surface Go devices both have USB-C ports and not offering them on the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop would be a unusual omission.

Microsoft's Panos Panay at the company's Surface Event. Today, Surface Pro is now Surface Pro 6, meaning they've made a decision to go back to numbering. Also, there will be other variants with 16GB of RAM, paired with 512GB or 1TB of SSD storage. If you have not checked out several videos on YouTube, Intel's eight-generation processors outfitted in notebooks are capable of carrying out video rendering and on a portable device like the Surface Pro 6, that is going to be a killer combination.

Then again, ditching the Surface Connect port wouldn't let MS sell the giant adapter version of a USB-C to Surface Connect port for $80, which probably explains why the system hasn't changed.

We're also anticipating Microsoft opening the floodgates for Windows 10 October 2018 Update downloads at the same time, considering how the Insider Preview build is officially RTM (ready to manufacture) and October 2 is technically a "Patch Tuesday" for Microsoft, when updates to Windows 10 generally occur. Users will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 Home for free, but not to Windows 10 Professional. However, Microsoft has used the opportunity to update the 12.3-inch PixelSense display - it now offers the highest level of contrast ever seen on a Surface Pro tablet.
