About halfway through the video, Panay's daughter walks into the room in which he's filming. She joins the video, says hi, and says good-bye alongside Panay ending the video.
Panay often announces Surface devices with a bit more fanfare, but with the current health crisis Microsoft took a different approach to announcing the new Surface devices.
Small and portable
The new Surface Go 2 packs a larger 10.5-inch higher resolution display, thinner bezels, more power and storage for all your on-the-go computing tasks. Compatible with previous and new accessories.
Two in one
Power on the go
The refreshed Surface Book 3 for 2020 gets new Intel 10th Gen processors, more powerful GTX graphics, and much better Wi-Fi, SSD, and RAM options making this one powerful 2-in-1 convertible PC.
Back in black
Microsoft's Surface Headphones are back, and they're available in black. The Surface Headphones 2 also bring Bluetooth 5, up to 20 hours of battery life, aptX support, and more.
Microsoft's super smart earbuds
Now at a lower price, the Surface Earbuds will undoubtedly turn some heads when you're out wearing them, but you'll be able to make use of gesture support on your PC, iPhone, or Android smartphone.
Dock on demand
The Surface Dock 2 brings much-needed updates to the original, adding in four USB-C ports alongside the usual ethernet, USB-A, and 3.5mm jacks.
Ports on the go
For all modern PCs
The Microsoft USB-C Travel Hub lets you take more ports on the go, expanding all modern PCs with extra USB-A, VGA, HDMI, and VGA ports in a small package.
