The report also claimed that the said laptop is likely to be officially released by the end of March or sometime in April. It is expected to be priced at around $1,000, which is much lower than Microsoft's current Surface Book model that ranges from $1,499-3,199.
The same sources said the new Surface 2 notebook will be retailed at a USD1,000 price tag, which is significantly lower than the price of the older products, which fetches at USD1,499 to USD3,199 per unit. Microsoft will also stick with high quality materials in the construction of the Surface Book 2-like its predecessor, the Surface Book 2 will be constructed from a magnesium aluminum alloy.

The Surface Book has been marketed primarily as a laptop, but the Surface line of devices are mostly related to a 2-in-1 device.
In October 2015 Microsoft's Corporate VP for Surface, Panos Panay, launched "Surface Book" at a special event in his typically excitable way to say that it was 2X more powerful than Apple's MacBook Pro.

According to a recent DigiTimes report, the Surface Book 2 has already entered pre-production.
Fans are eagerly anticipating the release of Microsoft Surface Phone which will be powered by Snapdragon 835 CPU with a 5.7-inch screen display. There is no word on specs just yet, though we'd be surprised if Microsoft didn't build the Surface Book 2 around Intel's Kaby Lake processors. It would expose Microsoft's confidence in itself for hardware as being paper thin. Quoting an anonymous source, the report stated that for the 2017 iteration of the flagship laptop, Microsoft would be adopting a series of changes to the device's design and pricing. Instead, Microsoft apparently adopted the traditional clamshell design for the device instead. As a result of using a more traditional design, the engineering will be simpler.More news: Petition calls on Tatton MP George Osborne to 'pick one job'
