Microsoft just added the new member to their Surface Pro lineup. The company has decided to drop the numbering scheme with this new device. As a result, Microsoft’s new hybrid computer just called as the ‘Surface Pro’ instead of the expected Surface Pro 5. The new Surface Pro weighs around 770g, has a 12.3-inch screen and starts at $799.
It comes with the latest generation Intel Kaby Lake processors. The core m3 and core i5 variants feature a new fan-less design while the Intel Core i7 variant still includes a fan. Microsoft’s Surface head Panos Panay said, “This isn’t just a processor change, We did take Kaby Lake, it’s the latest generation, of course. But it’s the integrated SSD on the motherboard. It’s the fundamental architecture changes that we do in Windows and Surface. It brings 13.5 hours of battery. It’s lighter than the previous generation product, and it’s more powerful with no fan.”
Design wise the new Surface Pro looks very identical to its predecessor. It comes with premium Alcantara Platinum, burgundy, and cobalt blue Surface Pro Type Covers. The regular type cover is available at $129 whereas the premium covers will cost you $159. The port selection is below average with the Surface connector, USB, and mini DisplayPort. There are no USB-C ports on the Surface Pro ( come on Microsoft).
Introducing the new Surface Pro
Microsoft will also launch their first ever Surface Pro model with the added LTE connectivity. It will cost more than the standard variants with the exact pricing structure yet to be announced. It will support micro SIM and eSIM.
The Surface Pro is currently available to pre-order starting at $799. Microsoft will start shipping the devices starting June 26. Stay tuned for the updates.
