Microsoft said to release Surface AIO in the third quarter of 2016

    With its success from Surface 2-in-1 devices, Microsoft reportedly is cooperating with upstream supply chain players to develop an all-in-one (AIO) PC under the Surface brand and will launch the model in the third quarter of 2016 at the earliest, according to industry sources. However, Microsoft did not confirm the report.

    The Surface AIO PC is apparently an alternative for Microsoft's second-generation Surface Book, which will be delayed to the first half of 2017 instead of the original schedule set in the second half of 2016 due to delayed shipments of Intel's Kaby Lake CPUs, said the sources.

    The launch of the Surface AIO PC is believed to have a strong impact on the global AIO PC market, which has been diminishing amid declining demand for PC products, commented the sources, noting that Lenovo and Apple are currently the top-two AIO PC vendors globally.

    lobal shipments of AIO PCs are expected to drop to 12.6 million units in 2016, down from 14 million shipped a year earlier, according to data compiled by Digitimes Research.
