If you're in the market for a new Windows laptop, you're liking holding off until later this year to see what Microsoft has planned for its next generation Surface Book, unofficially known as the Surface Book 2. We don't really know much about the second generation Surface Book at this point, but Intel may have given us a first clue.
In Intel's recent promotion video for its new 8th Gen Core processors, the video appears to feature a never-before-seen black edition of the Microsoft Surface Book. There's no doubt about it, it's a Microsoft Surface Book — in black. Could this be a sign of things to come?

I did ask Microsoft about this, and they declined to comment. This is par for the course when it comes to talking about unannounced products, but if the Surface Book in Intel's video was nothing, then surely Microsoft could have said that, right?
Of course, it's entirely likely that Intel is using a custom render of the Surface Book, in which they simply decided to coat the device in black. Or, perhaps Intel knows something we don't and is giving us a little tease. We can only speculate at this time.
Regardless, the black Surface Book in Intel's new promo video looks cool as hell. In fact, it makes me want a stealth black Surface Book right now. We've still got a few months to wait before we officially know what Microsoft has planned for its next Surface Book, with rumors suggesting Microsoft is looking to hold another hardware event in October this year.
