Reviews for the Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) m3

80% One Tablet to Rule Them All: The Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 Review
Source: Make Use Of English
Which brings us to an interesting argument against buying it. Given the closeness to its predecessor, it might be more cost effective to buy last year’s model. There simply isn’t enough new with this model to justify the $1000-$3000 price tag. The Surface Studio mode is certainly an advantage, but will appeal purely to artists. Of course, the lack of a Surface Pen with this model might equally discourage the digital artists among you.

Microsoft's flagship Surface Pro gets an extremely conservative update, but better battery life keeps it the gold standard of Windows hybrid PCs -- for now.

Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) Review Roundup: Not Bad, Still Expensive
Source: Extreme Tech English
Ultimately, that’s the conclusion most reviewers have come to. If you have an older first or second-generation Surface Pro or haven’t owned one at all, the Surface Pro can make a great option, provided you understand some of the tradeoffs inherent to the system. But if you’re still rocking a Surface Pro 4 (or maybe even 3), the battery life gains are going to be your only major reason to upgrade, assuming you aren’t an artist in need of Surface Pen.

Microsoft Surface Pro (2017): Everything you need to know
Source: PC World English
The Surface Pro (2017) is a Surface Pro, plain and simple: tablet, magnetically-attached Type Cover keyboard, kickstand. If you were to put a Surface Pro next to a Surface Pro 4, about the only way to tell the difference would be to look at the attached Surface Pen, which lacks the clip of its predecessor.

Microsoft Surface Pro (2017)
Source: PC Mag English
It's just called the Microsoft Surface Pro now, but the 2017 iteration continues to be the 2-in-1 detachable-hybrid tablet that other PC makers will strive to emulate. A processor bump, longer battery life, and new peripherals are the big improvements.

Comment

Intel HD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Kaby Lake Y-series processors (4.5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
7Y32: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.0 - 3 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter and is manufactured in a 14 nm process. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
12.3":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
0.766 kg:

This weight is typical for small tablets.


Microsoft:

Microsoft smartphones and tablets have been tested since 2012. There are many reviews with average ratings. The reader's interest is quite given, but the market share is not big enough for the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers (as of 2016).


79.14%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
