    A generous word is "aspirational". For business and the consumer there was somewhere between little and nothing in this. 

    Of course all of this is Apple-like cutting edge hyper expensive innovation. However for the average consumer they are not looking at a Surface AIO since other manufacturers do consumer solution much cheaper. If you are graphic artist you have traditionally gone to Apple so this may move Microsoft into that market. 

    Surface Book is a good update but I think many wanted a Surface Ultrabook all along. I wonder how business would like a "creator update". Business might be confused by what's in it for them.

    Usual Microsoft event where Windowsphone wasn't mentioned. No change there.

    It was great technology and the headline products sound wonderful. Great high end announcements. Possibly the strategy is a Apple like premium product idea where partners make the consumer and business PCs for most people.

    One less dongle: Apple is selling USB-C to Lightning cables (in 1 and 2 meter lengths) for plugging in your iPhone/iPad.
