Surface Book 2016 improvements

USB-C on tablet, GPS, GSM/LTE version, MicroSD on tablet, 2 USB-C on keyboard + 1 USB, deeper SC card slot (so SD fully fits into it), kickstand, additional SSD drive in keyboard part.
 
how about just making the surface pro tablet with the option to buy THAT keyboard for extra battery life and superior typing experience, one with gpu and one without. Bump surface pro screen to 13.3 inches, this would also solve the kickstand on the tablet portion since surface pro already has it...this could push battery life to insane levels but obviously weight will come into play.

It's not that the SP5 and SB2 couldn't be redesigned/reengineered to make that possible although it may not be that practical. The Type Cover and Surface Book Keyboard have different connectors and they are currently in the same place. The weird size differential between SP and SB would not be aesthetically appealing when the two were connected to there'd be extreme derision online and in the media. If pigs could fly this still wouldn't.

I fear then as you say weight will cripple it. The top half would be too heavy for it to be stable. The whole reason for the 'fulcrum' hinge with its unique unrolling nature is to compensate for the weight of the clipboard section, and that's even with the lower feature set. Imagine adding in the Kickstand, 4x battery size and ports. I can't see it working.
