Microsoft Surface has slowly, but steadily gaining a fan following of its own, especially when it comes to the Surface Laptop. The Surface Laptop is the company’s ultra-portable laptop with a unique finish and great battery life. On October 2, it would appear that Microsoft may be seriously augmenting the Surface Laptop portfolio with a slew of new devices.

According to a report by WinFuture, this year’s Surface event on October 2 may see far more than just the regular 13-inch refresh. Amongst the notable new additions could be a new 15-inch Surface Laptop, with the same 3:2 aspect ratio display found on the Surface Book. The report also states that there may be an AMD Ryzen powered Surface Laptop as well and there is a likelihood that the Ryzen chip would power the new 15-inch model.

If Microsoft does indeed release a 15-inch variant of the Surface Laptop 3, consumers will have more choice and flexibility from the Microsoft stable. Currently, Microsoft only offers the Surface Book and the Surface in 15-inch variants, both devices catering to a class of consumers that differs in various ways from the typical Surface Laptop buyer.

While we look forward to whatever Microsoft may (or may not) announce, what we do hope for is that Microsoft update the I/O on the Surface lineup to a more modern, adequate set. The current Surface Laptop 2 (Review) comes with a single USB-A (3.0) port and a display port. All competing laptops, in comparison, feature multiple Type-C ports, if not Thunderbolt 3. Given that Intel recently announced that Thunderbolt 3.0 would now be royalty-free, we hope that the new Surface Laptop 3 would feature atleast Type-C ports, if not Thunderbolt 3.0.

Microsoft may also announce a new Surface 7.0, again with an updated I/O configuration and hopefully, upgrade to the newest processors from both Intel and AMD. As far as an update to the Surface Book goes, there’s not a lot of information out there. However, the powerful, two-piece laptop from Microsoft could also use an update to the newest GPUs from Nvidia, but that’s something we’re not going to be holding our breaths for.
