    So after today's announcements does anyone feel that the Surface Pro line might be dying? I love my Surface Pro 3 and really don't want a Surface Book.

    Just asking the question as my system is running strong and I don't have plans on retiring any time soon.

    Not sure why you'd think that. We all knew there would be no SP5 at yesterdays event.

    Next version, I hope, will get a larger screen. I would like a SP5 to be the screen size of an iPad Pro / Surface Book, but the form factor of the Surface Pro...

    I think the Surface brand is doing better then ever right now. I would be extremely worried if I were Apple or Samsung.

    Even if they can get a larger screen into the current form factor, I really hope they don't. Bezels serve a very important purpose, and the current bezel size is perfect right now.

    I like the form of the SP4, lighter by a tad and more battery would be great. I know we hit a slowdown because the lack of chip-sets for the Pro form factor. I want to see USB C as well, i Know it is rarer.

    Really just threw this up for some healthy discussion. I love traveling with my SP3 and I am never going to the book if I can help it.

    I'm planning to buy a new Surface Pro next year and the rumour is new Pro/Book versions will be revealed 'early' 2017... so looking good for me, although I'm sure they will just be small improvements from here on in for a few years.

    Really tempted to get a Book, but I prefer a smaller device.
