“Is Microsoft Surface a Laptop?” This is a question which many people are asking. After all, it has a keyboard, comes with Windows 8, and features a USB port.
Given that the second-gen Surface tablets were released towards the later part of 2013, we guess this timeframe does sound about right. MSFTnerd also revealed that we can look forward to a (a smaller 7.5-inch version of the Surface tablets) and versions of the before the end of the year. Last but not least MSFTnerd revealed that Microsoft had put plans of a Surface notebook on hold for now. It is unclear what Microsoft would do with a Surface laptop since the Surface tablets in a way are almost like laptops, especially the Surface Pro 2. Perhaps it could be those reasons that Microsoft has put those plans on hold for now, but either way since none of this is official information from Microsoft, do take it with a grain of salt for now.
