    What I found interesting is the rumor that it might come as a clamshell model instead of the hybrid. I definitely like the clamshell models more than hybrids, since I don´t use that functionality. I doubt very much that they will drop the hybrid model completely, if there is any truth to the rumor then perhaps they might offer a clamshell at a cheaper price.

    Hope it will still be a convertible with active digitizer, otherwise that's just stupid IMO.

    Surface series imo is the best experience of mobile computing that one can buy into.

    As mentioned elsewhere, I hope the new book keeps the detachable screen etc, but uses the hinges from the new laptop instead of the rollie hinge of the current model.
