“We are in Surface to create new categories of computing, and you see that with the Surface Book, Surface Studio, and even the original Surface Pro.

If you look at the last year, we’ve grown share in large parts because of the pioneering work in Surface. This last year it’s true we’ve seen more price competition from OEMs that have kind of impacted [Surface’s revenue]. The Surface Laptop is new today, and you might expect to see an update to Surface Pro 4 coming soon”, Mehdi explained.
