Consumer Reports is a US-based not for profit service that gives people recommendations on whether consumer products are worth buying and live up to vendor claims. Getting a tick from them is a big deal, especially in US markets. And a black mark can be a massive cause for concern which is why there will be a bunch of people at Microsoft HQ panicking at Consumer Reports' dumping the Surface from its recommended product list.

The new Surface Pro gets an extremely minor upgrade to the Surface Pro 4 -- apart from dropping the number at the end, it's minor under-the-hood changes at best, as well as a more versatile kickstand. Not much is different to tempt existing owners. But that doesn't change the fact that it's still the best 2-in-1 tablet-laptop hybrid you can buy today.

The Surface Laptop is one of my very favourite ultraportable notebooks of the last few years. It's a MacBook Air, but built for 2017: a beautiful screen, great speakers, gorgeous design and a slim profile. And now, a la Apple's iPhones, you can pre-order it in some gorgeous colour variants which will land in Australia at the end of next month.

Come with me, and you'll be in a world of pure imagination.

I'm not joking when I say the Microsoft Surface Studio makes this sentence -- pulled from the incredible video that Microsoft wrote to promote its new super-luxury, all-in-one PC, in the words of Willy Wonka's fantasies -- come true. When you get face to face with the Surface Studio, and when you see what it can do, you can't help but think of all the possibilities of what you can do with it. It's incredible.

Microsoft's Surface laptop-tablet hybrid has gone through a huge number of small, often unnoticeable tweaks in its journey from the original Surface Pro of 2013 to the current Surface Pro 4. While the tablet itself gets a lot of attention for the evolution of its kickstand and touchscreen and angular slate design, the humble Type Cover, a nearly mandatory accessory, doesn't get as much love. Microsoft went to pains, though, in the creation of the Signature Edition version of the Type Cover -- a slim, slick, refined piece of hardware that represents the best of Surface and of Microsoft itself.

There's an optional discrete graphics card available in higher-spec variants of Microsoft's brand new Surface Book laptop; it'll make the thin and light laptop powerful enough for a bit of casual gaming as well as demanding graphics applications like Adobe Photoshop. Probably, at least -- we don't actually know anything about it, and Microsoft and Nvidia are staying pretty quiet on the topic.
