Microsoft to get upper hand over MacBook Pro by delaying laptop?

Packed with an array of awe-inspiring features, the latest Surface Pro 5 has always been rumored to arrive this year. Instead, the company might just be refreshing the Surface Pro 4 with upgraded specs. Also, Surface Pro 5 is tipped to incorporate an upgraded Surface Pen, which is created to charge through the dock built into the Surface Pro 5.

Microsoft has an event happening on October 26, and it is widely believed that Microsoft Surface Book 2 and Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be presented.

There is no doubting the fact that the current generation Surface Pro is possibly the best performing 2-in-1 hybrid device now available in the market. The display would offer two options to users: a 2K screen and a 4K screen. This isn't actually a shocking move for Microsoft considering the success of the Surface Pro 4.

Due to this, the Pro 5 may not come out until 2017. However, others suggest that the upcoming event, which is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, October 26 in New York City starting 10 am ET, will mainly focus on Windows 10 software updates, Xbox related updates, Microsoft Surface device news and OEM devices. There will be multiple versions of the Surface Book 2 each with its unique set of features.

Since the Surface Pro 4 is pretty much flawless all in all, there isn't a lot that Microsoft can do to improve it.

The Surface Pro is also not far behind of these killer specs.

Battery life is the long-standing issue with both the devices.

The Microsoft Surface Book 2 shall reportedly come with the latest Windows 10 update called as the Redstone 2.

Some critics also believe that if ever the head-to-head match-up between the two flagship laptops happen in the near future, the competition would not be even close as the Microsoft Surface Book 2 would dominate the Apple MacBook Pro outright. The battery performance on the Surface Pro 4 is possibly the biggest downfall of the device but its successor device is tipped to overcome this by incorporating a more efficient processing chipset.

The short answer here is "maybe". It's safe to say that the company is working hard to live up to fans expectations when it comes to Surface Pro 4's successor. we can just hope that when the Pro 5 gets launched, it would come with some happy additions.
