Microsoft Working On Surface All-In-One PC For Living Rooms

The company is expanding the Surface brand beyond the hybrid tablet with an AIO destined for the living room. Details are light thus far, but I would imagine it to be a much larger and more powerful Surface that, while not exactly portable, would be practical enough to carry from room to room.

آ…the timeframe for a Surface AIO will partially depend on availability for Intel's new Kaby Lake 14 nanometer processor, the successor to Skylake. We can also add to the original report that the company is positioning the Surface AIO for the living room. The device is evidently targeting a "modern and elegant" design and is meant to be something akin to a premium appliance or furniture. Unfortunately, any details about specifications and the Surface AIO design are not known at this time. Our last report claimed that Microsoft is aiming for an early 2017 launch of new Surface tablets, and a planned "Surface phone", all linked to Windows 10 Redstone 2 general availability. Bringing the Surface AIO into that launch window would seem to make sense.
