It’s expected the new Surface Book will have a traditional laptop design and a lower starting price than its predecessors.

The lower price and lack of a gimmicky removable screen should indeed help sell more units, but I don’t think it’s going to be nearly as popular as Microsoft wants it to be. I probably wouldn’t be interested in it myself unless I knew for a fact that I could reformat it, and load a GNU/Linux distro on it.
