Microsoft confirmed the date of its special event by publishing it on its special event webpage. The event is called New Era of Work and will take place on March 21, 2024, at 9 am PDT.

The event description for Microsoft’s March event says

Tune in here for the latest in scaling AI in your environment with Copilot, Windows, and Surface.

The Redmond tech giant will announce new Surface hardware, new features for Windows 11, and Microsoft Copilot, and the event is targeted at the company’s business customers.

In an earlier report, we informed you about Microsoft’s plans to refresh its hardware line with the new Surface Pro 10 and Laptop 6.

Surface Pro 10 will come with an OLED display, and the new Surface Laptop 6 will have thin display bezels, a haptic touchpad, rounded corners, one USB-A, and two USB-C ports.

These upcoming devices are expected to have improved CPU and NPU pairing and are supposed to perform better than their predecessors as they will come packed with Intel Core Ultra and Snapdragon X Elite-based processors.

With Copilot integrated into Windows 11 and superior hardware, Microsoft is planning to call them AI PCs. These devices will launch in the coming weeks.

The ones with Intel hardware will be available from the beginning of April, while the ones with ARM-powered hardware will be out in June. The prices for the new Surface devices are presently not mentioned anywhere, guess we have to wait for the event.

For the first time, both Microsoft Surface Pro 10 and Surface Laptop 6 will have the ARM. However, if you want to learn more about them, we need to wait a bit longer.

The company will also discuss new Copilot and Windows features, probably connecting them with the next-generation NPU found in the new devices. Rumor has it that Microsoft is also working on AI Explorer, which will act as an advanced Copilot, cataloging every action on your PC so that all of it becomes searchable with the help of natural language.

You can expect the company to announce the much anticipated Windows 11 update, Windows 11 version 24H2, and upcoming AI improvements and new features in the operating system.

Microsoft Surface fans have high expectations for this hardware event, as they have been waiting for a new Surface device for two years.

With new hardware and advanced technology emerging every year, Microsoft has to introduce exciting features and advanced hardware devices to ensure they remain competitive in the market.

We will keep tabs on the event and talk about the announcements more after the event. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to mention them in the comments section below.
