Surface Pro & Surface Laptop specs
Microsoft’s latest line of devices builds on what made their original devices so beloved in the first place. The Surface Pro 7 now gets power from 10th Generation Intel Core processors and has a battery life of up to 10.5 hours. On top of that, they’ve also included a USB-C port which is always something people look forward to. Besides that, it features a 12.3″ PixelSense display that pushes a resolution of 2736×1824. It also weighs in at 775g without the keyboard.
If you’re not a fan of the detachable form-factor and don’t want to have to fork up extra for a keyboard, you can get the Surface with its keyboard permanently attached–the Surface Laptop 3. This device now comes in two sizes: 13.5″ and 15″. While the smaller Surface Laptop 3 also gets 10th Generation Intel Core processors, the 15″ Surface Laptop 3 is powered by AMD’s Ryzen. The 13.5″ device weigh in at just under 1.3kg, while the 15″ laptop is just under 1.55kg.
Unfortunately, there’s no news on the Surface Pro X laptop or any of the Duo and Neo “smartphones”.
