Microsoft has rolled out its latest Surface Pro (their 2-in-1 laptop) follow up just weeks after it unveiled a new set of Surface laptops earlier this month. First unveiled in 2013, Microsoft has managed to keep the laptop-tablet market alive by blending its Windows software and other services with a unique hardware spec. Let’s take a look at what the new Surface Pro packs together;
Processor: 7th generation Intel® Core™ processor into a new fanless,5 whisper-quiet design
Battery life: up to 13.5 hours for video playback which is 50 percent more than the previous
RAM: 8 GB RAM
Keyboard: as Microsoft puts it, this is their best keyboard ever. It features the Signature Pro Type Covers which delivers a more accurate typing and better sound. Typing is faster on it as it comes with a 1.3 mm of key travel. Built using Alcantara material, it enhances the natural allure and warmth of Surface Pro.
Resolution: 12.3” PixelSense designed to work with new Surface Pen
Chassis: 8.5mm thin and weighs 0.7Kg
Surface Pen: Surface Pen tilt functionality (detects the angle of the Surface Pen to enable more natural shading) is currently available with the new Surface Pro.
Connectivity: LTE option for more mobile connection options and sadly no USB-C ports on the Surface Pro just like its predecessor.
Pricing: from $799
Availability: June 15th in 25 countries including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Korea, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and the United States;.
