Microsoft can prepare to return to a black color for the upcoming Surface hardware. While the software giant originally launched its Surface RT in a black "VaporMg" magnesium alloy, the company quickly switched to a silver color for Surface 2. The German site Windows United initially announced that Microsoft will launch a new black version for Surface hardware and now Thurrott reports this will include both Surface Laptop 2 and updated Surface Pro.
Microsoft is expected to uncover updates from both Surface Laptop and Surface Pro at an event in New York City on October 2. The new models will probably include Intel's latest processors, a USB-C switch, and a possible new black color variant. If the reports are real, this will be the first time a modern Surface Pro has a new color across the device, and not just the Type Cover. Microsoft has stained its entire Surface Laptop, but retained a silver body on the latest Surface Pro.
