Microsoft's rumored Surface desktop PC could debut in late October


Microsoft is set to reveal a brand new Surface device in late October event according to the latest rumors.

The report comes from ZDNet‘s Mary Jo Foley, who has a history of correctly reporting on Microsoft rumors. According to Foley, the new Surface device will be an all-in-one PC that’s destined for the living room.

We previously reported on rumors pointing to the mysterious device which could come with modular parts.

Foley expects rumored Surface device to come in three different screen sizes: 21″, 24″ and 27″ and could be the consumer version of the Surface Hub. If you don’t remember the Surface Hub, it was Microsoft’s TV-sized tablet for the living room. This newly rumored Surface all-in-one is much smaller and should be a more affordable version of the Surface Hub, which cost up to $21,999 (£14,850, AU$30,435).

Microsoft is keeping quiet about the existence of the Surface all-in-one and won’t even acknowledge that there will be an event in late October.

Foley expects other Surface tablets and laptops will get a minor refresh with the new Intel Kaby Lake processors, but doesn’t expect any major refreshes for the Surface or Surface Book until spring 2017.
