The new Surface Pro debuted in Shanghai China this morning during a Microsoft Event Keynote. Microsoft continues to position their latest tablet as "the most versatile laptop" because it uses next-gen Intel Core processors (i5 and i7).
Microsoft states that their new Surface Pro ships with Windows 10 Creators Update and is fully compatible with the programs you need to be productive. Optimized for Windows Hello, Skype9 and Microsoft Office 3653 with new inking features in Word, Excel and PowerPoint coming first to Windows touch-enabled devices and designed to work best with the new Surface Pen on Surface Pro. Now you can work, connect and create even more in the most widely used productivity suite.
Of course a Surface product keynote could never pass taking a dig at a comparable Apple product and today was no different. Microsoft notes "You can leave your charger at home because Surface Pro is packed with up to 13.5 hours of battery life. That's 50% more than Surface Pro 4 and 35% more battery life than an iPad Pro.
This is a powerhouse laptop with 2.5 times more computing performance than the Surface Pro 3 and 1.7 times the compute of iPad Pro. The improved Surface Pro hinge has a full 165-degree range of motion, letting you immerse yourself in "Studio Mode", an angle inspired by the Surface Studio, perfect for writing, sketching, and drawing on the go.
Surface Pro starts at US$799.99.
