A new 15in model to join the 13in would bring the Microsoft Laptop 3 in line with the MacBook Pro. But a larger laptop from Microsoft would also mirror the 13in and 15in Surface Book 2 line up and it could look a little confusing for buyers given that product’s laptop form factor.

The Surface Book 2 is a more powerful machine than the Surface Laptop 2 and The Verge has reported that Microsoft will not update the former at the 2 October Surface event. These rumours suggest the company wants to push its Laptop brand more aggressively.

The event might also see the launch of the Surface Pro 7, the next generation of the device that forged a path for 2-in-1s in the computing industry. Whatever Microsoft launches, it continues to struggle against the dominance of the MacBook in the consumer market and the cheaper laptops running its own Windows 10 software.
