    Do you think an ARM-powered 10" Surface is likely to be released next year or it will be replaced by Microsoft's new foldable device?

    I hope it will be available in the first months of 2018, but since no one is talking about it, I'm starting to have doubts about it.
    I don't think it would be a good idea to do this on a Microsoft branded device. It will be slow and not a premium device and will give people the impression that Surface sucks and Windows sucks. My daughters' school has these cheapo Lenovo laptops and they are slow and miserable to use and the kids all think that Windows sucks now as a result. My daughter is amazed when she sees how well my HP Specter laptop runs.

    Let the bottom feeders makes such a device while Microsoft makes the premium halo devices. Or else they risk damaging their brand again.

    My Surface3 is great, need a refresh, would like it to be a 8" or so device that folds down to a smaller mobile, not a phone but like one, form factor

    I think windows on arm hit a major snag when intel said they wanted royalties for emulation.

    So long as it will perform at-least as good as a mid-range x64 pc/laptop, I don't see why not. I would, in-fact, go so far as to recommend they even use a custom SOC from qualcomm if needed to meet that performance requirement.

    Yes, and Microsoft really cannot afford to lose partners as entrenched and big as Intel at this point.

    The only solution might be the probably intel ARM chip with 100million transistors per node soon. The I can see intel playing ball and Microsoft having one of the best arm chips

    Sure, why not. Then they can discontinue it in 2020 at the latest.
