Exactly what I was thinking. I'm glad you articulated it.  I'm not much for gold, but the rose gold looks very good, in part because it does resemble copper a bit. 
The Surface is tractionless, unfortunately. All Apple had to do was do it a little better, smack their logo on it, and BOOM... Microsoft is pushed even further back into the Wndows/Office rehash corner.  It was inevitable, the moment Apple decided to do an iPad Pro. Apple is essentially pulling the rug out from under a duck that was already dead.  Microsoft doesn't even care about their devices.
