posted on

Microsoft unveils the Surface Pro, the much-awaited upgrade to the Surface Pro 4 laptop-tablet combination. However, Microsoft doesn't want to call the new Surface Pro a hybrid or a tablet as it is a laptop and comes with a Type Cover in the same color fabric as the Surface Laptop: Platinum, Burgundy and Cobalt Blue. It also has the same 12.3-inch screen which supports touch and pen.

It is the lightest Surface Pro ever at just 1.7lbs and 8.5mm thin but equipped with a powerful 7th generation Intel Core processor. Memory options range from 4G up to 16 GB of RAM and storage ranges from 128 GB SSD up to a 1024GB option. There's still an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera for video conferences and Windows Hello facial recognition to log in. In addition, there's a micro SD slot for storage expansion.

Surface Pro's resolution is a 12.3" PixelSense Display with 267ppi and 3:2 aspect ratio. According to the website, they've developed a custom silicon to enhance the colors to make it more vibrant, precise and impactful than ever before. It also claims to have 50% more pixels than a 12" MacBook.
