Microsoft Is Working On Its Own AIO Desktop Surface PC

A report from DigiTimes claims that Microsoft is hard at work creating a new surface tablet which is going to be entirely different from its predecessors as it is going to be an AIO desktop machine instead of a portable machine. Microsoft known for either making notebooks or tablets will venture into the AIO market for the first time with this Surface Desktop.

This step by Microsoft shouldn’t be very surprising as the demand for a computer and monitor to become part of the same unit is on the rise. Apple has already established itself as a front runner in this market with its iMac which is an AIO.

Apple and Microsoft have often indulged in healthy competition and Microsoft has already given Apple a bit of a tough time in the notebook and tablet PC market. Seeing the rising demand and the history between these two companies it seems quite reasonable that Microsoft has chosen to proceed with creating its own AIO.

But we must review this story with caution as DigiTimes does not have a reputation of always being on the mark and therefore we shouldn’t bet a 100% on the authenticity of this report. If this turns out to be true then we shall have to wait till the third quarter of 2016 to hear the announcement for the Desktop Surface PC as Microsoft is awaiting the release of the Kaby Lake processors which are still under guard by Intel.

The Kaby Lake chips will replace Skylake CPU’s but aren’t ready for production at the time being. Microsoft is first in line to get its hand on the chips but its plans may be thwarted if Apple decided to integrate the chip in its own machines.
