New & Improved

Well the Surface Pro gets internally updated, not much in the way of eternal changes. The pen and keyboard also get updated. And while many people have written about Microsoft's hate of USB-C, they plan a dongle that will connect to the Surface Connect port to provide access to the new style port. Multiple Office apps have been updated to take advantage of the pen in many new ways.

This means your personalized inking tools stay handy wherever you work." Read more at: ars technica:
