However, Microsoft has not shown much about what to expect, besides that there will be at least one Surface product there too as"experiences."

The company invited the media to New York on Oct. 2, and while there's nothing confirmed just yet, we've quite a few expectations regarding what will show up.

Surface Pro 7

You will find Surface Pro 7 rumors coming every which way from the woodwork, but awarded the launch date of the previous Surface Experts, we may not see the Surface Guru 7 before mid-2020. Obviously, that does not automatically indicate that Microsoft will skimp on that announcement onstage.

Regarding pricing, signs point to the beginning model building a jump to $999, as the other versions slowly increased $100 more than time. We are hoping that the new Surface Guru will eventually arrive with a keyboard and pen, but we're not holding our breath.

We have seen many patents around a possible new Type Cover and Stylus, which might cause a sleeker, more exciting Surface Pro 7 using a USB Type-C interface together with a modular pen. We have also seen an FCC filing that signals that the pen may have charging. As far as specs go, we're expecting a 10th Gen Intel Core processor, although the following Surface has been rumored to arrive with an ARM-based variant running on Qualcomm 8cx SoC. It's well worth noting that German tech website WinFuture claimed to have discovered all Surface Guru configurations, which includes a Core i3 version.

But what we would like to see is a USB Type-C port, or even a Thunderbolt 3 port, and that, if the patent isn't any indication, is coated. We are in need of a quicker SSD, particularly since the last 256GB SSD hit just 327 MBps to get a $300 cost leap. A discrete GPU would be nice for founders on the go; nothing crazy, but possibly a variant with an Nvidia MX230 or MX250. And as it stands, those Surface bezels are thick by 2019 criteria, so we need them as slim as the distance between two keys on a keyboard.

Surface laptops news 3

As with the Surface Pro 7, there is a Great Deal of buzz around the Surface Laptop 3. Interestingly, the Surface Notebook line has had a similar release pattern as the Surface Guru lineup, so while it is possible that it'll appear at the October event, indications point to mid-2020. But we're hopeful we'll see it sooner.

If Microsoft is pitting the Surface Notebook 3 against Apple's MacBook Air, we could anticipate a starting price around $999.

Talking of space, we're anticipating the Surface Notebook 3 will boast 10th Gen Intel Core processors, particularly since a possible Surface merchandise was benchmarked with that. About the layout, a WinFuture reported that there will be a 15-inch version of the Surface Laptop 3 with a 3:2 aspect ratio, which sounds badass.

What we want from the Surface Notebook 3 is not far away from what we need from the Surface Pro 7, since they have similar issues. We want some USB Type-C action, a quicker SSD and a few thinner bezels. Cheaper updates are fine. As mentioned with the Surface Pro 7, it's a $300 upgrade from a 128GB to 256GB SSD, and that's on both machines.

Surface Book 3

Unfortunately, it is unlikely that the Surface Novel 3 will appear in Microsoft's occasion, especially since the rumors are scant. Considering that WinFuture's report left out the Surface Book 3 entirely, we might not see it.

But if it surprises us all, we're forecasting that the pricing of this Surface Book 3 will be in accord with the purchase price of the current Surface Book 2. So that means a beginning price of $1,499 on a 13-inch model and also a max price of $2,299 about the 15-inch version.

Though there have not been any rumors specs, we envision that the Surface Novel 3 will make the jump to 10th Gen Intel Core chips. And since the Surface Book 2 boasted a GTX 1050 and 1060, we forecast that the upgrade will land somewhere between a GTX 1650 and RTX 2060. It would be nice to find the Surface Book expand into a full on 2-in-1 with a lighter and thinner design.
