Welcome to the 11th episode of Ask Windows Central, a show where we answer our community's most asked questions around Microsoft, Windows, Surface, Xbox, and the general tech industry. In today's episode, we answer questions about Windows 11, future Surface devices, and more!

This week's episode features the following questions:

  • What are your predictions for features and fixes for "Sun Valley 3"/23H2?
  • Looking to upgrade my original Surface Laptop. When can we expect Laptop 5 and will there be a redesign?
  • Is there going to be a new touch first Surface device this year to take advantage of the new touch features in Sun Valley 2?
  • What is the future of Surface now that surface neo is cancelled?

If you have a question you'd like us to answer on the show, be sure to submit them in the comments below, or email with "Ask Windows Central" in the subject line! You can also join the Windows Central Discord and ask questions in the dedicated #ask-wc channel.

If you're on Twitter, you can tweet your question with the #AskWindowsCentral tag included, and make sure you tag either @daniel_rubino or @zacbowden so we can see it.
