By releasing a cheaper Surface model, Microsoft is trying to gain a bigger share of the low-priced tablet market, which Apple recently tapped into with its latest iPad version. The new tablets are expected to start at around $400, down from the $799 starting point of current Surface Pro models. Microsoft's effort of what a tablet can do is so far successful but the number of people using them would be a lot less as compared to iPad pro users. The report says that the new Surface will feature 10-inch screens, iPad-like rounded edges, and battery life closer to the iPad's promised 10 hours than the prior Surface claim of 13.5 hours.

Although low-powered devices often ship with ARMCPUs, the new tablets will reportedly sport Intel hardware, though chip specifics have yet to be detailed. The new device could be ready to hit the market as soon as the second half of 2018.
