We're just a couple of hours away from Microsoft's Surface event in NY, and it's been quite a long time since the company held one. The company is holding a media event tomorrow in New York City that is expected to focus on the Surface Laptop 2, Surface Pro 6, Surface Studio 2, and upcoming Windows 10 features. A render of this new Surface family in black got leaked today ahead of its announcement, check it out above.

Microsoft has indicated that the new Surface devices will be made available in a new black colour option.

Microsoft's event will take place on October 2 at 4PM ET (1:30am IST, October 3). The base Surface Pro 6 is expected to feature 4GB of RAM and an Intel Core m3 CPU.

Elon Musk resigns, pays $20m fine in settlement with SEC
Likewise, Tesla will pay another $20 million due to its failure to check whether Musk's announcements complied with the law.

Microsoft's next-generation Surface Pro and Surface Laptop are both expected to be announced tomorrow, but the size of the update may disappoint those who were hoping for more than a minor refresh.

Surface Pro series has been a benchmark for the high-end mobile PCs. Even the design of the Surface Pro 6 is going to resemble last year's model. The new model will keep the same body and won't get an USB-C port like on the Surface Go or the Surface Book 2, although not everyone agrees.

Surface Laptop 2 will retain the form factor of the predecessor but will improve in terms of specifications.

Her allegations first appeared in the New Yorker. "It's about sinking Donald Trump and it's about politicizing the Supreme Court". Archila told the AP she was sexually assaulted when she was 5 years old by a teenager when she and her family lived in Colombia.

"With this update, we'll be bringing new features and enhancements to the almost 700 million devices running Windows 10 that help people make the most of their time", Roanne Sones, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft wrote in a blog post last month.

That's all for the existing family of Surface devices, but a brand new addition to the family isn't completely off the cards. This rumor would confirm what was seen in the leaked images of the Surface Laptop 2 from MySmartPrice last month showing no USB-C port.

When it comes to specs, the entry-level Surface Laptop 2 will pack an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM instead of 4GB, and 128GB of storage. Like the Surface Laptop 2, the device will be available with the consumer version of Windows 10 in S-Mode.

The divisions cut across party loyalties, with Labour's traditional leftwing working-class constituencies voting largely to leave. Labour could play a decisive role in whether any Brexit deal is approved by parliament.

Microsoft already had a black Surface years ago, but for the past five years it only offered silver models.
