Asus Transformer Mini Goes on Sales as an Affordable Microsoft Surface Clone


Also, one of the possible reasons why the Surface Pro 5 will not be released this year is the shipping of Intel's seventh generation processor, the Kaby Lake. Now that there are only a few months left for this year, the public is waiting for Microsoft's official announcement about the fate of its highly successful Surface devices. Microsoft fans can also save $260 when getting the Surface Pro 4 with 256 GB of space.

On the other hand, Tech Times believes that it is unlikely for the Surface Pro 5 to be unveiled at the coming October 26 event of Microsoft. As reported by Tech Times, huge price discounts are being offered by several retailers on the Surface Pro 4. Surface Pro 4 buyers can now save up to $585 Dollars if they choose to buy a Surface Pro 4 equipped with an Intel Core i7 chip coupled with 16 GB RAM and 1 TB of storage space, and up to $260 USD if they buy the lower storage capacity 256 GB Surface Pro 4 Variant. Previous reports suggested that the American tech giant is going to release multiple devices before the year ends, the Surface Pro 5, the Surface Book 2 and its new flagship handset the Surface Phone. Surface Pro fans can only wait and see.

Judging by their rumored specs, both Surface Book 2 and Surface Pro 5 promise to be substantial upgrades over their predecessor models, which makes it a bit tricky to pick a clear victor among the two upcoming hybrids.

As things stand, Microsoft is expected to roll out its next big update to Windows 10 Redstone by 2017, which is expected to incorporate a host of added upgrades compared to its predecessor OS.

Though it hasn't been confirmed if Microsoft will be announcing the next-generation Surface Pro, it is believed that the device will make its debut this year as a photo which made the rounds online hints that Microsoft is gearing up to launch one Surface device this year and three more devices in 2017.

Usually, the price discount promos for the older models indicate the arrival of the newer ones, but this might not be the case with the Surface Pro 4 and 5. Nonetheless, it is unlikely to be the Surface Pro 5 but, rather, the rumored Microsoft All-in-One (AIO) PC, which is meant to rival Apple's iMac.
