One of the key selling points of Microsoft's first notebook was its modular design, where users could use it as a tablet or a laptop, depending on what they want to use it for. Unfortunately, Microsft is now rumoured that the successor to the original model won't sport the detachable design.
Instead, it will be a traditional laptop with a 13.5-inch display and a magnesium-aluminum alloy body. The rumour is coming out of "sources from the related upstream supply chain", and also reveal that the new Surface Book is already in mass production. The announcement is reportedly scheduled for April. The good news is that the new model will be cheaper than its predecessor, starting at $1,000.
