I think so. HP is now offering an i7 ultrabook with a 15.6" 1080p IPS touch screen and 500 gb HDD with 32 gb mSSD for $30 less than a 64gb SP with keyboard and $139 less than the 128 gb model. That is how they say in the PC marketplace, pricing pressure. I predict a $200 price drop in the SP (probably in the form of an included keyboard or maybe a year of Office 365) between now and the holidays. We have already seen SP's at giveaway prices at these conferences. I do not believe there will be a Surface Pro II. Why not? Better question is why does the marketplace need one? Cheaper and smaller Surface RTs, yes, Surface Pro II? No. The SP was a nice early adopter (best athlete) device at the time it came out, but can it really compete with the ultra-slim, ultra fast, ultra HD hybrid devices coming out from MS's hardware partners in the next 6 months? Unless the SP is going to have a 4k HD screen, Haswell, much better battery life and a backlit keyboard, MS better just save their time and money. The future for the Surface is 8" RT devices or maybe at best, Atom devices running Windows 8.
