    Both stories posted TODAY. Which is credible? Perhaps the first article is referring to ARM based RT Surface, even though it doesn't state such in the article.

    In particular with Microsoft Surface Pro 3 we are now offering an enterprise-class device that can deliver great end user productivity. Microsoft is putting its full and sustained support behind the ongoing Surface program as one of a number of great hardware choices for businesses large and small.” – Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO

    In answer to your title question, what you're missing is this: the original source of this rumor was DigiTimes.

    'nuff said.

    Makes sense, wasn't aware they are a poor source.

    Possibly jumping to conclusions from other information. like someone reported their store was no longer carrying Surface Pro 2. Ergo, the whole Surface line is toast. That probably only took passing hearsay information from the source to the third person. :)

    DigiTimes is the National Enquirer of the Tech Press....they get just enough correct to keep people going back but 98% they are wrong...
