And it could be a nightmare for all PC makers.

If the advertisement surface book has gone, you'll want to know. Killer, guts reachedthe maximum output, a hinge fresh, and upper thread that emerges, as the dish of theUSS Enterprise, into a thick, powerful tablet is a 13.5 inch screen notebook. Replace the screen face up, and the surface of book enters "draw mode", which brings all the power of a discrete GPU Nvidia to influence based on similar applications and pencil sketches. It is a beauty, is a beast, and $1,500, which is expensive, but not ridiculouslyso.
Sounds good? It should. In fact, it is difficult to appoint another laptop hybrid of highrange that is so attractive. That puts all those who make portable Windows known asOEMs, in trade lingo - in a curious position: what to do when the partner that suppliesthe brains of your product releases a upper body?
"It's a shot of warning from Microsoft OEM partners," says Forrester Research principalanalyst of JP Gownder. The message is clear. If the Dells and World Health BBS will notinnovate, Microsoft will do.
A collision like this was, if not inevitable, then at least very probable since Redmondannounced the first Pro Surface in 2012. After all, that was certainly a case ofMicrosoft making its own hardware, giving customers a homegrown alternative to itsallies of hardware of all life.
The Surface Pro, however, not competed directly with OEMs, if only because it wasvery strange. It was a Tablet, a ultrabook, and above all, a source of great confusion.Microsoft was competing against 2030 laptops, perhaps not the Lenovos from 2013.
Surface book takes any kind of ambiguities.
"It positions itself as a laptop, very full on the MacBook Pro as an example. But thatcould also be extended to a Dell XPS 13, or a 360 HP x ", said Patrick Moorhead,President and founder of Moor Insights & Strategy. Further consolidating the differenttenor of notes Surface and Surface Pro book, Gownder, Microsoft announced ago justa few weeks than HP and Dell would begin resale Surface Pro devices for thecompany. The book of fairly explicit surface was not mentioned as part of thatagreement.
And should I? While Microsoft, obviously, runs the risk of alienating its partners, whois doing the same with a much bigger in mind fight.
"At this time Microsoft actually believes that it should be a combined hardware,software and services from play to go up against the likes of Apple" says Moorhead."That is why he is doing this. That's why it is taking a stance so aggressively now,moving to laptops "."
In addition, it is not as if PC makers can do much about it, even if they are burningwith the fury of thousand suns red-hot.
Nowhere to Runtime
This lack of impact may have emboldened more Microsoft. PC makers have anotherplace where to go, at least in regards to laptops.
Before shouting "Chrome OS", remember that almost all of these manufacturersalready beat out Chromebooks to the varied success, and that Chromebooks are notyet full-fledged PCs substitutes. In terms of a position of relative weakness, whichmore than commerce is also paving the Chromebook Pixel and Pixel c book Andbefore yelling "Linux", please skip to the bottom to leave a comment angered byderogatory form this piece is Linux, while the rest of us proceed.
The only other option would be to look for a new operating system. That's not socrazy in that may sound in mobile; When Google flirted with the production of theirown smart phones through its purchase of failed Motorola, Samsung coughed "Tizen"strong enough to make Google sells his potential conflict of interest to Lenovo. Thereare no Tizen for desktops that are not designed in Cupertino. There are only inWindows.
"Look at what Dell is doing. They are diversifying strongly out of the PC business. ",Said Gownder, citing the last Entrenchments of that company in TI and securityservices." Some OEMs may have to diversify to other areas, or some of them may haveto assume the wearables category.
