    Based on some things I have read lately, just because it has a mobile version of Skylake that doesn't automatically mean no fan. It seems some other portable devices also have Skylake with a fan.

    Fan or no Fan is dependent on power. An i5U, i7U is going to be 15W and needs a fan. Core m3-6y30 will be 3.5-7W and wont require a fan although some vendors still might use one.

      Contrast ratio: 1300:1
      Aspect Ratio: 3:2

    Also according to Cnet
    The new Surface Pro 4 also includes two cameras:
    a front-facing 5-megapixel camera with Windows Hello facial recognition, and
    an 8-megapixel rear camera.
    Ports include a reversible USB-C connector for power and docking,
    a Mini DisplayPort,
    a headset jack,
    a full-size USB 3.0 port, and
    a microSD card reader.
    Microsoft will also offer an optional docking station with four USB 3.0 ports, two 4K-capable DisplayPorts, and an Ethernet jack that can all be added to the tablet using a single USB-C cable.

    WAIT WHAT Ports include a reversible USB-C connector for power and docking
    This is unconfirmed but that's a significant departure if true... how would this work with the SP3 dock?

    Appears CNet is wrong Anadtech indicates no USB-C

    The pictures on the Microsoft site certainly show no sign of a usb-c port, nor do the tech specs.

    You have to do a custom build. The 1TB option is insanely expensive, but for businesses who want it, it won't matter.
