According to Windows Central, Surface Laptop 6 and Surface Pro 10 will be available in two types: Intel model and Arm model. Both the Intel model and the Arm model are equipped with an AI-specific processor NPU, but Microsoft is said to be particularly focused on the Arm model of both models.

The Arm model is being developed under the code name 'CADMUS', is equipped with a Qualcomm chip, and is built exclusively for the next generation Windows called Hudson Valley . By adopting an Arm chip and optimizing the software, the Arm model is said to achieve processing performance and battery life comparable to Apple Silicon-equipped Macs. Additionally, Windows Central speculates that CADMUS will be equipped with Qualcomm's SoC ' Snapdragon X ' series.

The appearance of the Surface Laptop series has not changed from the initial version, but it seems that the appearance of Surface Laptop 6 will change significantly. Specifically, the bezels will be thinner, the corners of the display will be rounded, and the number of I/O ports will increase. In addition, a 'Copilot key' will be added to the keyboard that will give you instant access to AI tools. Furthermore, Windows Central reports that ``Surface Laptop 6 will be available in two sizes, a 13.8-inch version and a 15-inch version,'' and ``It is designed to compete head-on with the MacBook Air.''

According to Windows Central, Surface Laptop 6 and Surface Pro 10 are scheduled to be released in 2024, with 'more significant updates' to the Surface Pro series planned for late 2025.
