We expect the Surface Pro 5 to come with an Intel 6th Gen “Skylake” CPU and a rechargeable stylus when it is likely announced in June or October. We anticipate the Surface Pro 5 will feature 6th Generation Intel Skylake processors, and USB Type-C charging, simply because the hybrid would be outdated upon arrival without those incremental updates. The USB allows users to plug in an external drive for additional storage. If you have many full-length DVD movies to rip, in order to expand your data storage beyond the capacity of the internal SSD in the Surface Pro 5, you have many external storage options for Surface Pro 5 like hard disk drive (HDD), USB drives, MicroSD memory card, thumb drive, OneDrive (Cloud storage), etc.
