    If for a younger audience does the Surface laptop need additional colours to capture a greater audience?
    for a younger audience and for a greater audience in general. there are multiple options for potential customers to buy, which is great because if one person is bored of gray laptops (*cough* macbooks *cough*) and wants something with color there are other choices available.

    With alcantara being the go to material on tje Surface Laptop and mouse. Would a pen in a **** material not be a nice visual offering from the surface brand?
    microsoft sold whats called a pen loop for the surface type cover for the surface pro 3 but that type cover wasnt alcantara material. i can see why they sold it as an option instead of include it on the keyboard as not everyone uses the pen so it wouldnt be aesthetically pleasing to see an empty pen holder. i wonder if microsoft will sell something like that pen loop for the new surface pro line. i know the surface pro has a magnetic edge but something about that i dont trust. anyone with experience care to share their thoughts?

    The more I look at these laptops the more I feel Microsoft should have added a little more to it. First the 4GB should not exist, also why not have the screen fold all the way back so you can use it like other 2-in-1, I know they wanted strictly a laptop, but then why add the touchscreen.

    At lastly why not add 1 USB-C port, I heard their explanation and I still do not get it.

    Look at what HP did with the HP Spectre x360
    HP Spectre x360 | HP® Official Store
    they have their on charger, but added a USB-C port for charging and connections. Also the screen folds all the way back.

    I love the design of the Surface Laptops, but I feel like they didn't take full advantage of the capabilities a modern laptop should be.

    hey there. my reasoning for why microsoft doesnt sell the surface laptop with the screen folding all the way back (or convertible notebook) is because thats what the surface book can do. the surface laptop is the "happy medium" between the surface pro and surface book, so if youd like something with a reversible screen or even a detachable screen then go with the surface book, if you want a tablet that you can attach a keyboard then go with the surface pro, but if you just want a laptop then go with the surface laptop.

    i had also addressed the touch feature on the surface laptop in another thread but heres why i think microsoft included it: if you think about all of the non-accessory surface products (surface pro, surface laptop, surface book, surface studio, and often-forgotten surface hub) each product incorporates touch. a surface product without touch just doesnt fit in the "family" of products. it wasnt a choice to add touch capability in the surface laptop, it was pretty much mandatory.

    A little late to the party :( so only one post from me ^^

    First great with a World wide giveaway ^^ THANKS!!!

    Think the laptop looks great, and I like that they kept the standard USB instead of a USB-C, cause I have a ton of external drives on the old standard.
    Also like the new windows version, its lite and for most laptop oriented work the apps in the store will suffice. And if not, you can up-great for free. No downside to it at all.

    So hope I can win it, so I can finally put my 10+ year old brick to rest.

    welcome galka_dk! wow a 10+ year old computer. i dont think me or my family has had a computer for that long. this would be a sweet upgrade for you! i dont think microsoft would pull an apple and completely remove usb-a so its great that usb-a is included. some people in here have expressed concern about having just 1 usb-a port which i can understand, but in my case its perfectly fine for my needs. welcome again, good luck, and who knows; this one entry you have could be the winning ticket haha. :P

    hey johnny. im surprised this hasnt hit 1000 posts yet too considering theres over 1000 comments in the contest announcement article in windows central. the number on the top right signifies what number the post was in the thread, so your post is number 739 out of currently 742 and this reply to you is number 742 of 742.

    hey surapathi. i think this thread is fine although i can see your frustration (post once in here instead of contributing in one of the other threads, most of which have legitimate questions asked, and the person who posted once wins). however, thats not true. rule 3 states 1 post equals 1 entry in the surface laptop forum but spam posts wont count so as long as you contribute as much as you can in the surface laptop forums (not only this thread) with responses that are thought out your chance of winning goes up. ive seen your posts in other threads so youre doing the right thing by contributing to the forums instead of posting "i want a laptop!" then dont say anything again.

    So I will look for the answer to this in one of the dedicated forums too but does anyone know if the power brick will finally transfer data? That's a way to add an extra port to the surface without having to build it in the body since MS hasn't done that yet-and I know the Surface Connect port can transfer data because when connected to the dock it transfers the ethernet data. I know currently the brick only supplies usb power though. Has anyone heard anything about this amongst all the other news?

    Thanks k1s23,
    To clarify only my laptop is that old (but even my gaming PC is nearing its 5th year, but has a GTX 690 so still works fine) but my laptop has mainly been for browsing, and write/reading, so it hasn't been warranted to splurge on an upgreate :(

    What are the extensions in particular that you are looking for. I use chromes but not much of extension user so no aware. Would be interesting to see what else is there and its use case.
    Well I'm a programmer I use Postman and others like it it. Also Chrome has some great Parental Controls for youtube like Bloksi and several others. As a power user I like having the options of different Extensions

    Hi K1s23,

    I don't disagree with any of what you stated, but I think the Surface Book is not a "Happy Medium" its just a bad compromise. I know the Surface Book can fold over but it also detaches and when closed it has a bump that many of us don't like. So my point if you are going to add a touchscreen, make it usable where you can fold the screen back. I feel that Microsoft leaves these functionalities out to added to future models.
    Same thing goes for USB-C it something that the industry is making standard and yet its still not added to the current surface products


    i had also addressed the touch feature on the surface laptop in another thread but heres why i think microsoft included it: if you think about all of the non-accessory surface products (surface pro, surface laptop, surface book, surface studio, and often-forgotten surface hub) each product incorporates touch. a surface product without touch just doesnt fit in the "family" of products. it wasnt a choice to add touch capability in the surface laptop, it was pretty much mandatory
