Microsoft Surface Pro Series

Microsoft Surface Pro 8, i7-1185G7

Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) is the fifth generation in the Surface Pro family. The Surface Pro is solid as a rock and exudes a sense of futuristic quality. It’s also well-designed, with a look and feels that, while minimally changed from the Surface Pro 4, is still an improvement. The corners are more rounded, and the exhaust vents along the edges are less pronounced.  There aren’t many moving parts in the Surface Pro itself. The power and volume buttons along the top are easy to find by feel, and have a crisp action, while the kickstand is smooth and reliably holds the tablet at chosen angle. It now opens up to 165 degrees, an increase from the Surface Pro 4, which opened 150 degrees. Fully flexed, the kickstand can turn Surface Pro into a nearly-flat slate. If a user decides to flip into tablet mode for a moment and fold back the Type Cover, the keyboard will turn off when the cover is tucked back. It can even switch Windows 10 into tablet mode if desired. It attaches to the tablet with strong magnets and connects via a physical port, meaning there’s zero lag when typing. The Surface Pro sports two front-firing speakers on each side of the display. There are small cutouts in the glass to let the sound through, and the design provides impressive sound for a tablet. Music is great, with surprising range, and there’s even a hint of bass. The speakers also get surprisingly loud and can fill a decent sized room without distorting.

The Surface Pro features up to a seventh-generation Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD. It is seen that the Surface Pro offers a cutting-edge CPU, solid RAM and SSD options, and full support for all of Microsoft’s most innovative Windows 10 technologies. All that will keep the machine relevant for years to come. The Surface Pro is refreshingly light on bloatware. While it’s stocked with the usual Microsoft Windows 10 apps and a handful of casual games, it’s otherwise unencumbered with junk software. The Surface utility is also a nice app that offers the ability to configure the Surface Pen and get some useful information about your machine. Microsoft is using a 45-watt-hour battery in the Surface Pro, which is an increase from the 38 watt-hour battery that was packed into the Surface Pro 4. The Surface Pro also uses more efficient seventh-generation Intel Core processors. Taken together, the new model offers improved battery life over its predecessor. The Surface Pro is eminently portable, at 0.33 inches thick and 1.73 pounds. Even with the Signature Type Cover attached, the machine is easy to carry around and slip into a bag. It might not be quite as thin and light as the iPad Pro, but it’s also a much more powerful machine that can run real PC applications. The Surface Pro bring a whole new meaning to the word tablet. It is a iPad like device but is actually a real computer.

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 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.

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.

Olden but golden. Without a USB Type-C or Thunderbolt 3, the 2017 model of Microsoft's Surface Pro seems kind of dowdy. The fanless operation we have already seen in Acer's Alpha 12, and unfortunately the device throttles noticeably. Is the only benefit left really its decent battery life?

The Microsoft Surface Pro is an innovative and flexible device that's great for doodling and jotting down notes all day long while looking up half a dozen reference pages on a browser and blasting music on the side. Living with one poses some challenges because it's still very much a tablet first and a laptop second, in terms of design and performance. You'll have to shell out a hefty amount on accessories to make this tablet a laptop and an electronic scribble pad at the same time.

The New Surface Pro certainly is a natural progression from the Surface Pro 4, rather than a massive leap forward. The seventh-gen Kaby Lake processors and extra battery life are well worthwhile, but to be expected. The additional flexibility of the kickstand is fairly slight, albeit not unwelcome. Hopefully the new Type Covers and Surface Pen will similarly offer some improvements.

Close, but not quite close enough. We were happy to learn that the Iris graphics card is awake and alert despite SoC-throttling. The Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) cannot be considered a "gamer" however, nor is it a full laptop replacement: Just like in the i5 version, there is significant throttling.

Be warned, though: it doesn't come cheap. The Surface Pro starts at £800, and tops out at well over two and a half grand for the most expensive model. It's a lot of money, admittedly, but on the other hand, you're getting one of the most capable machines on the planet for your investment.

Microsoft's Surface family is usually best-of-breed, but the Surface Pro is spectacular even by Microsoft's lofty standards. Raw speed, a gorgeous screen and one of the best keyboards in the business - Microsoft has packed it all into one slim, sexy package. The Surface Pro is, hands down, the best business hybrid out there.

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.

The Surface Book can adapt to almost any workflow, thanks to its versatile design and powerful performance. And with its dedicated GPU in tow, the machine is powerful enough to handle even the most demanding tasks, offering the kind of graphical punch that even Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro can't match.

Ultimately, while the Microsoft Surface Pro is a welcome hybrid device which may no doubt feel like a step up for many people looking to be more creative, I find that I can’t really recommend it for professional artists drawing and painting by hand. We expect, and need to have full control over the marks we make, and don’t have time to wait to see whether we can work with what we’ve actually drawn.

90% Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) Review
Source: Toptenreviews English
We weren’t thrilled with the high temps and throttling of our test model’s Core i7 CPU (which is apparently still a little too much chip for a thin tablet form factor), and we’re hoping the problem doesn’t extend to the Core i5 units, but since the latter ditches the fans altogether, we’re expecting they don’t. We’ve requested a Core i5 review unit, so hopefully we’ll be able to confirm that in an upcoming issue. All things considered, the Surface Pro is an exceptionally powerful device in a uniquely versatile and compact form factor. If you don’t want or need the touchscreen, you can likely find better value in a laptop, but if you’re after a terrifically ultraportable Windows device with a stylus, then there’s still no better alternative to the Surface Pro.

The new Surface Pro is a superb 2-in-1. It’s beautifully built and performs well. The screen is excellent and even the speakers sound good. However, it’s very expensive, especially when you add the cost of the Type Cover and – if you need one – the Surface Pen. Few will opt for the base model, and you’ll pay a heck of a lot more for a Core i7. Ultimately, while a fantastic device, it’s hard to recommend the Surface Pro unless money is no object.

The iterative nature of the 2017 Surface Pro doesn't detract from the fact that this is an excellent 2-in-1 and a worthy update on 2015's Surface Pro 4.

However, I think Microsoft is still playing it a bit too safe in a few areas. While improved, the Surface Pro's battery life still lags behind those of other ultraportable laptops, and the lack of a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port are strange omissions for a premium flagship device. And after three years in which the Surface Pro has had essentially the same aesthetics, I find myself wanting a bit more excitement out of this machine's design. But if you want the best detachable out there, the Surface Pro is still the one to get.

The Surface Pro lineup has always been one of the most powerful tablet class devices around. Microsoft is no longer marketing it as a tablet that can replace your laptop anymore though, and they’ve acknowledged that most of the customers who buy and use the Surface Pro are looking for an ultraportable laptop. That makes a lot of sense, since the Surface Pro weighs only 786 grams / 1.73 lbs for the Core i5 and i7 models, and the Signature Type Cover only adds another 310 grams / 0.68 lbs. As a complete package, it’s only 1.096 Kg / 2.41 lbs. It’s not the lightest device around, but it’s still very light and easy transport.

Even in 2017, there are just far too few compelling apps that take advantage of the Surface Pro's versatility. It used to be that you couldn't do much about that if you wanted a Surface device. However, in the past two years, the Surface family has greatly expanded. Unless you really need and want that tablet functionality, I think the Surface Laptop is a much better fit for most people.

Microsoft's new Surface Pro is a powerful machine with a slight drawback
Source: Yahoo English
This time around, the Surface team improved the device’s display to work better with the new Surface Pen stylus. According to Microsoft, the Pen is more sensitive than its predecessor and suffers from less latency. The company says it cut down the response time for the Pen to 21 milliseconds. Microsoft also added a tilt feature to the Pen so you can create wide strokes with the stylus when you tilt it.

Microsoft Surface Pro (2018) review: A capable workhorse with major improvements, but justifying the cost is still tricky
Source: Tech2 English
If you are on a strict budget, but want to invest in a Surface Pro, then you can get your hands on the Core m3 processor sporting variant which is priced at Rs 64,999 or a Core i5 processor with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant priced at Rs 79,999. Of course, both of these variants will have lower performance numbers. If you want to go all out on the Surface Pro, then the Core i7 variant with 16 GB RAM and 512 GB SSD is priced at Rs 1,82,999.

Surface Pro with LTE Advanced Review

All things considered, busy professionals and workaholics will appreciate the sheer convenience of a consistently connected Surface Pro, making the $150 price premium and additional costs worth it, provided they have a the money to spare. If you're the typical small business user, the stock Surface Pro will do the trick, especially if you can use your phone as a hot spot without incurring additional charges.

Microsoft Surface Pro LTE (2018) Review Roundup: Flexible, Expensive
Source: Extreme Tech English
The white elephant in the room, at least as far as the Surface Pro 2017 is concerned, is the advent of Intel’s Coffee Lake CPU family and the expected launch of new desktop and mobile SKUs in the very near future. Microsoft has historically refreshed the Surface Pro family every 12-20 months, which means there could be a new Surface Pro launching later this year. With Coffee Lake expected to succeed Kaby Lake in mobile devices, it’s hard to see how MS could avoid the need for new SKUs, unless it intends to keep selling 2C/4T products against 4C/4T or 4C/8T devices from its competitors.

Microsoft has updated to the Surface Pro series with quad-core Kaby Lake Refresh processors, but how well will these chips cope within an 8.5-mm thick tablet? Will these more powerful processors affect the battery life, and has Microsoft finally added more ports? Find out all this and more in our detailed review.
80% Microsoft Surface Pro 6 review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Surface Pro 6 is a familiar refresh, with few changes of note besides an upgrade to Intel's 8th generation processor. This certainly provides a good performance boost, making the cheaper models a more viable choice. It’s a shame there are still no bundle deals for the Type Cover as a keyboard is really an essential accessory for virtually everyone who buys a Surface Pro. But while this is effectively more of the same, the Surface Pro 6 remains an excellent choice if this is the type of PC you want. Most rivals can’t compete with its battery life, but it’s possible to get longer from some 2-in-1 laptops.

Raw speed, a gorgeous screen and one of the best keyboards in the business - Microsoft has packed it all into one slim, sexy package.

Microsoft has led the way in this laptop and tablet hybrid design, but it now risks competitors catching up. Apple is still selling the same MacBook Air design, years after most PC makers have caught up and surpassed a laptop design that changed the industry 10 years ago. The Surface Pro 6 might look a little familiar and lack modern ports, but it’s still the portable laptop and tablet hybrid to beat. For now.

Microsoft Surface Pro 6, Core i5, 128 GB

The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is a 2-in-1 laptop with the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processor. From office to home, airport to open road, a user can certainly power their life on the Surface Pro 6. Users can unplug, pack light, and get productive all day with the Surface Pro 6. The Surface Pro 6 can be adjusted to three modes, which are laptop mode, studio mode and tablet mode. It has a quality-feeling magnesium body with slightly rounded edges for hand-held comfort. Users can adjust to the modes with the innovative, built-in Kickstand and Type Cover. Microsoft went for matte over glossy for the finish, so fingerprints are minimized on the device. Starting at just 711 g (1.7 lb), a user can work virtually anywhere with the Surface Pro 6, an ultra-light and portable touchscreen laptop with the creative versatility of touch and pen. The device measures at 11.5” x 7.9” x 0.33” (292 mm x 201 mm x 8.5 mm). As for the display, the Surface Pro 6 comes with a 12.3” PixelSense display with 2,736 x 1,824 (267 PPI) resolution, 3:2 aspect ratio, and 10 point multi-touch. It is slightly improved from the predecessor. The Surface Pro 6's display now has a stronger contrast ratio of 1,500:1 compared to the previous model’s 1,300:1 figure. The display is nice and bright with plenty of color vibrancy, especially in the ‘enhanced' display mode. The Surface Pro 6 starts with a Core i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of storage. It can go up to a Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and 512 GB of storage. There's no discrete GPU and again no USB-C connection which means no access to external graphics cards. The Surface Pro 6 has 13.5 hours of battery life on local video playback. The battery life will be enough for a day of work, or to play Netflix videos and some games. Like most Surface Pro devices, a user won’t be playing high-end games on this due to the built-in Intel graphics. For connectivity, it comes with a USB 3.0 port, 3.5 mm Headphone jack, microSDXC card reader, a mini DisplayPort, a Surface Type Cover port and a Surface Connect port. There’s no USB-C here, and no ThunderBolt 3 support. That means users can’t charge their phone with the same charger as the Surface Pro 6. As a conclusion, the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 has slight improvement compared to its predecessor. It is a minor refresh of the Surface Pro series which is lightweight and convenient, especially for users who work on the go. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Regrettably, the Surface Pro 6 carries on the repair, or un-repairability tradition scoring 1-out-of-10. While that is not good, it is due to copious amounts of hot melt glue and almost everything inside being surface mounted. While batteries are replaceable, the path to get there is fraught with danger.

Microsoft’s Surface Pro 6 is faster, longer lasting and now comes in a sleek, new black shell but … that’s about it. This is no doubt a better product than last year, but it might not be the generational leap some were hoping for. If you already own a Surface Pro 2017, this upgrade isn’t worth the cost. Otherwise, it’s the best Windows tablet money can buy.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 Review: More Than A Color
Source: AnandTech English
Microsoft’s Surface lineup has always been about a premium device, and to showcase their software, and the Surface Pro 6 delivers on that front. Despite the somewhat questionable update cadence, and even the lack of USB-C, the changes that are here are all very welcome. No one is going to complain about more color options, and the improvements to performance and especially battery life are a boon to all Surface Pro users. These changes bring it to a level that Surface Pro has never been to before. Microsoft is being safe with the Surface Pro, but it was already the class leader, so it’s hard to fault them on that. The Surface Pro 6 is a much bigger update than just a new color.

84.4% Microsoft Surface Pro X Review - Microsoft's ARM-based tablet with poor compatibility | Notebookcheck
The Surface Pro X comes with an ARM-based processor and an integrated LTE modem, which is why it is an interesting device for those who appreciate portability. However, in everyday use, the combination of an ARM SoC and Windows 10 results in a lot of limitations, and the battery life is also quite poor.
80% Microsoft Surface Pro X review: Better battery life for the coolest Surface
Source: CNet English
Last year, when Microsoft launched the original Surface Pro X, the idea of a premium Arm-based PC was a fanciful one. There had been a handful of lower-cost models from HP, Asus and others, but they generally failed to impress. The Surface Pro X was a bold move to ditch the usual Intel (or AMD) chips and power a high-gloss, high-price two-in-one with a more smartphone-like processor. In that case it was the Microsoft SQ1, a collaboration between Microsoft and Qualcomm, based on the latter's Snapdragon chips.

Microsoft Surface Pro X review – Windows on ARM needs a bit more time to be perfect
Source: Laptop Media English
After a day with this device, we were convinced that this is more of a tablet, that can behave as a laptop, than the other way around. Its ARM processor barely opens 64-bit programs, and the lack of genuine ports makes it less versatile. On the bright side, however, the Surface Pro X features an NVMe SSD drive, and its memory comes in two options – 8GB and 16GB of LPDDRx RAM.

Microsoft Surface Pro X review: A costly Windows 10 device from the future
Source: Business Standard English
The Microsoft Surface Pro X is an expensive tablet which seems to do what Apple did with its iPad Pro 2020 – add keyboard with touchpad support. It works flawlessly and delivers on most basic tasks you expect your Windows-based machine to do. But its expensive price tag (around Rs 1 lakh) makes it best suitable for enthusiasts wanting to experience the Windows future on the ARM processor, not the masses.

The Surface Pro X seemed at first like a slightly mad prospect; a Windows device that could only run certain apps felt far too close to the bad old days of Windows RT, and the spectre of compatibility issues looms large. However, this isn’t nearly as much of a problem in reality as we anticipated. Sure, there are some apps which aren’t available at all but, barring a few intermittent stability hiccups, our experience was untroubled by performance woes.

The Surface Pro X is a Windows 2-in-1 that's difficult to get your head around. So long as you're comfortable with its limitations, the only real sticking point is the price as you're going to need the keyboard and Surface Slim Pen as well as the tablet itself. But for many people, there's better value and fewer compatibility issues to be found elsewhere.

But as I said up top, the Surface Pro X’s success isn’t judged by traditional measures. I won’t recommend a $1,700 2-in-1 with limited compatibility to most people I know, but I can get behind a bold vision for a new Surface and an ARM-based future.

Surface Pro X review
Source: Fudzilla English
The overall performance of Surface X Pro is impressive, and a giant leap forward for the “always connected PC” and Qualcomm’s PC efforts. While there is more to be done, especially on the software front, Microsoft priced this Surface at the higher end of the spectrum. Once you spend the time with the machine, you can understand why they went for such pricing. The part that I find difficult to understand is why the storage option costs an ARM and leg, pardon the pun. Storage is not that expensive these days, yet Microsoft wants Apple margins for 256GB or, god forbid, 512GB of storage.

With the Surface Pro X, Microsoft has created a forward-thinking device that’s ahead of its time – but this isn't a good thing. While the Microsoft SQ1 ARM processor enables slightly improved battery life and facilitates the slimmer design, the device is hamstrung by consequential performance and compatibility issues. The Surface Pro X may well be what the future looks like for Surface devices and 2-in-1s across the board, but we're some way off right now.

60% Microsoft Surface Pro X review: This isn't the long-lasting tablet we were hoping for
Source: PC World English
The question that I hope Microsoft is asking itself is: What compelling reason has it given for customers to buy the Surface Pro X? Always-on connectivity? It’s not a unique argument, and one that Intel itself is gunning for. We haven’t tested Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7, but we’d assume that that’s its best tablet, not the Surface Pro X. With this tablet, we can’t see why Microsoft would use the term “Pro” at all.

Microsoft Surface Pro X review: This isn't the long-lasting tablet we were hoping for
Source: Good Gear Guide English
After years of cookie-cutter upgrades, the Surface Pro X delivers a well-thought-out physical redesign. Again, however—and this is getting tiring by now—app compatibility, performance issues and bugs complicate Microsoft’s effort. Calling it an “Edgebook” isn’t quite right, because the Surface Pro X runs Office and other Microsoft apps well. But it still feels somewhat short of an actual PC.

The Surface Pro X might be my favorite PC that I've reviewed this year. It's actually the fifth Windows on ARM PC that I've reviewed out of the seven that have existed, so I'm used to the ins and outs of them.

While we applaud the Surface Pro X for its slick and refined, thin and light design, and comfy typing experience, the Surface Pro X is difficult to recommend for most people. It ends up being an ideal device for a very small group of users, thanks to the lack of a headphone jack and no support for a variety of apps.

I'll start with the good. The Surface Pro X nails three of the four main tenets of any good laptop: it has a gorgeous display; a premium, portable design; and long battery life. The fourth, performance, is a problem. ARM might be the future of computing but Microsoft jumped the gun with the SQ1, which offers middling performance on top of app-compatibility issues.

73% Surface Pro X review: Gorgeous hardware marred by buggy software
Source: Engadget English
Fair enough, but asking people to pay $1,140 (including the keyboard case) for something that might not run all the apps they need is outrageous. Especially since Chromebooks are just as good at handling browser-based applications and generally cost $500 or less. If you're in the sliver of the population that needs access to a small handful of Windows apps, then maybe the Pro X is sufficient. But bear in mind you'll be paying a hefty premium for Windows, an LTE connection and gorgeous hardware.

You should never buy a gadget today based on the hope that the software will come tomorrow. That rule applies to the Surface Pro X more than usual because the investment is so large. For the near $1,800 you’d have to spend to get the Pro X model I reviewed, you would be able to buy a Surface Pro 7 kitted out with equivalent RAM, storage, keyboard, stylus, and an Intel Core i7 processor that would be loads faster and also be compatible with all Windows apps.

Overall, if the performance promised (3 x that of a Surface Pro 6) is actually delivered, then the Surface Pro X could be a pretty impressive evolution of the Surface Pro and renders the Surface Pro 7 a little redundant.

The Surface Pro X is undeniably a pleasant bit of kit to use, but having used one side by side with the Surface Pro 7, we're not sure the premium demanded by the slimmer chassis, larger screen and Qualcomm-inspired tech is worthwhile compared to its stablemate, particularly if ever called on for more intensive work.

Surface Pro X review: hands-on with Microsoft's first true iPad Pro rival
Source: Digital Arts English
The Surface Pro X is thinner and lighter than the Pro 7, and has a high-end consumer/pro styling that’s distinctly different from the older design’s more corporate feel. It has a slightly larger screen with a thinner bezel (13-inch vs the 7’s 12.3-inch) with a slightly higher resolution (2,880 x 1,920 vs 2,736 x 1,824). Asleep and without the keyboard, you’d probably mistake it for the current 12.9-inch iPad Pro – unless you spot the Surface Pro X’s additional USB-C port.

There’s a lot to like about the new Surface Pro X over the conventional Surface Pro devices. In fact, its starting price of US$999 is only a little more than the asking price of the Surface Pro 7 that starts from US$749. Having said that, the Surface Pro X is ideal if you’re looking for the most modern Surface device ever, intend to stay away from a power socket for extended hours and appreciate the instant-on, ever-ready traits of the Surface Pro X. The new Signature Keyboard and Slim Pen sound like excellent options to complement the Surface Pro X, but beware those will add to the base cost of the product. For a higher level of computing power, the Surface Pro 7 will be the better choice with more varied configuration options.

Since those are still a year away before consumers can purchase one, without a doubt, the most controversial and arguably the sexiest device that you can get your hands on soon is the Surface Pro X.

The Surface Pro X is a really interesting device, and proof that Microsoft isn't messing around when it comes to expanding its line of first-party hardware. Aside from looking like the kind of aesthetically and mechanically polished 2-in-1 that we've come to expect from Microsoft, it's also one of the first real outings for ARM-based Windows laptops. This means it's got a lot of proving to do, but it also makes it somewhat difficult to predict how it will perform under pressure.

75% Microsoft Surface Pro 7 review: This or a convertible notebook?
Source: Hardware Zone English
However, if you are not set on a detachable notebook, it would be foolish not to at least check out convertible notebooks like the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 and HP Spectre x360. Granted, their tablet modes are compromised, but their built-in keyboards offer a better typing experience. If you type a lot, this is something to bear in mind. Moreover, the current crop of convertible notebooks is much more comfortable to be used as tablets, because they have never been this compact or light.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7 review: Still the best Windows tablet you can buy
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The Surface Pro design retains some advantages. For many, the inclusion of a USB-C and an older USB Type-A port represents an ideal compromise, even if we'd have preferred Thunderbolt. The kickstand is overlooked as an absolute necessity for desk work. Even the chunky bezels make the tablet easier to tote from room to room while playing Spotify or Netflix.

80% Microsoft Surface Pro 7 review: Still the best Windows tablet you can buy
Source: PC World English
Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7, the latest in the company’s excellent Surface Pro series, continues the tradition of being a durable, dependable tablet for the ages. It’s measurably better this time around, too, with an internal upgrade to Intel’s 10th-gen, 10nm Ice Lake chip and a nod to the future, a USB-C port. There are many good reasons why the Surface Pro 7 won our Editor’s Choice award, as you’ll see in our review.

90% Microsoft Surface Pro 7 review: the perfect tablet for Illustrators
Source: Digital Arts English
There are circumstances where the near-unique nature of the Surface Pro 7 means that it really is the best creative device on the market. If you’re a creative director running between client meetings and need a combination of a digital Moleskine and a way to keep your admin and email under control. If you want the thinnest, lightest device you can run the full version of Photoshop or Illustrator or XD on, it’s a no-brainer. Artists looking for the best drawing and painting experience are still better off with an iPad Pro and Procreate – but if you need to create vector art as well, then Illustrator on the Surface Pro covers both bases much better (sorry Affinity Publisher).

The Pro 7 is multipurpose. It might not do anything the best - cheaper laptops can comfortably outpace it in terms of raw performance - but it does just about everything pretty well. If you’re looking for a flexible tablet for work or pleasure, the Surface Pro 7 is definitely worth a look.

Despite all this, though, the latest Surface Pro is still an outstanding device. Performance is more than adequate, it's got the most attractive form-factor going, and it's the best showcase for the power of Windows 10. It's a great machine - it just doesn't stand out amongst the competition as much as it used to.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 initial review: More power and a new 15-inch version, too
Source: Pocket Lint English
Overall, this is an expected upgrade but one Surface Laptop fans will appreciate. One of the best Windows 10 alternatives to the MacBook Air and Pro 13, though the likes of the Dell XPS 13 also do a good job at filling that spot. The Surface Laptop 3 15 is a proper MacBook Pro rival and a top addition to the Surface family; a few more ports and an SD card reader would have been ideal though, mind you, not in keeping with the clean aesthetic Microsft is going for.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Hands-on Review
Source: Tom's Guide English
The Surface Pro 7 isn't the most exciting upgrade, but if the Surface Pro X's $999 starting price is too steep, this 2-in-1 should satisfy at $799. You get faster performance, dual far-field mics and a USB-C port in the same overall package. I just wish Microsoft trimmed the bezels and offered the same pen garage as the Surface Pro X's keyboard.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7 hands-on review: The best 2-in-1 ever?
Source: It Pro English
In many ways, the Surface Pro 7 feels like an indication that Microsoft has reached the limits of what it can do with the traditional Surface Pro design. While Intel's 10th-gen processors could offer a substantial performance boost, outside of the internal hardware, the iterative changes are getting smaller and less impactful with each successive generation. With the introduction of USB-C, Microsoft has fixed the Surface Pro's only real flaw, which begs the question - where is there to go?

We expected a bit more in advancements from the seventh Surface Pro tablet. USB-C is nice, but for a device at this price, its should be Thunderbolt 3.

The Surface Pro 7 is pretty much the same as the Surface Pro 6, with one important difference: USB-C. You’ll also get improved performance and microphones, but at the expense of battery life. The Pro 7 is a good hybrid PC, especially for those who’ve been waiting for the new port, but it’s otherwise not worth spending $750 to upgrade.

The Surface Pro X looks like it’s now attempting to set the stage in terms of raw hardware for competitors to catch up to, and we’ll now need to see if the Pro X can even come close to matching the performance of the Surface Pro 7. That’s highly unlikely, which will leave the Surface Pro 7 needing to catch up to the design of the Surface Pro X next year.

Frankly, the new Surface Pro 7 has us scratching our heads. For all intents and purposes, this is a spec update to the preceding Surface Pro 6. We will definitely see a sizeable boost in performance but battery life seems to take a massive hit as well, with little to no explanation. It charges much faster, but how much good is that when the device’s lasting power has dropped 30%? The Surface Pro 7 is a baffling upgrade to the existing model. It has virtually zero tangible design changes short of a new port, while performance takes a weird turn that's arguably for the worst. We'll save our full judgments for a full review, of course. Still, consider us apprehensive.

On the other hand, the Surface Pro 7 at the same price is a speedy little 2-in-1 convertible, especially if you can live with 128 GB of storage. At $899 the Core i5 with 8 GB of memory and 128 GB of storage is extremely reasonable. The upcharge for more storage is more palatable when the performance is excellent like it is here.

The Pro 7 starts at $749, and that will get you a Core i3-1005G1, 4GB RAM, and a 128GB SSD. I wouldn't get that one, since the Core i3-1005G1 is a dual-core chip without Iris Plus Graphics. I'd recommend going for at least the model that Microsoft sent me, with a Core i5, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD. It's actually $200 off right now for $999. You can check it out here.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 feels more like a Surface Pro 6.5 than an actual new product. The only significant changes are the addition of a USB-C input and a move to Intel’s newer 10th-gen family of laptop CPUs. However, it remains a solid convertible and great choice for those looking for a flexible machine that works equally well as an office laptop as it does as a personal tablet.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 feels more like a Surface Pro 6.5 than an actual new product. The only significant changes are the addition of a USB-C input and a move to Intel’s newer 10th-gen family of laptop CPUs. However, it remains a solid convertible and great choice for those looking for a flexible machine that works equally well as an office laptop as it does as a personal tablet.

We expected a bit more in advancements from the seventh Surface Pro tablet. USB-C is nice, but for a device at this price, its should be Thunderbolt 3. Plus, the display bezels are awfully thick for a tablet in 2019. The Surface Pro 7 isn’t big enough of a leap over the Pro 6 for us to recommend it to either upgraders or folks just getting into Microsoft’s tablet.

The Surface Pro 7 delivers big on performance and display quality, complete with a responsive screen for note-taking and drawing and a convertible design that really shines with the excellent Type Cover keyboard. The introduction of USB-C is a much-needed change, and the Pro 7's design remains as travel-friendly as ever.

Microsoft's convertible remains the best option on the market for those who want the portability of a tablet combined with the convenience of a laptop. But the Surface Pro 7 does little to move the needle. The few new things it brings to the table -- USB-C and 10th Gen processors -- are certainly welcome but not enough to make the Surface Pro 7 a required upgrade if you already own the Surface Pro 6.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7

Microsoft has to be applauded for its bold move of releasing two Surface Pro tablets together, namely the Pro X and Pro 7. However, it should be noted that the two serve different markets altogether. While the Pro X is a higher-priced, sleeker professional tablet, the Pro 7 is a more affordable version of the Surface Pro variants, bearing some similarities with its earlier releases. 

The Surface Pro models are known for their halfway-house combination between a tablet and laptop. The 2-in-1 criterion had always set these models apart from other Microsoft products. The Surface Pro 7 certainly propels the legacy forward. Despite sharing the same screen size of 12.3 inches, which is similar to its predecessor, the Pro 6, the Pro 7 does have more to offer. One of the notable differences would be the added feature of the Surface Pen, which can be directly used to write on Microsoft Office applications using the built-in hand-writing recognition function. The Surface Pro 7 also has much better far-field microphones for an improved user experience. While the Surface Pro 6 was powered by Intel’s 8th-gen processors, the Pro 7 was introduced with Intel’s new Ice-Lake 10th-gen chips. In comparison to the Pro 6, the newer processor of the Pro 7 offers a 20% performance improvement. It is definitely more competent in various areas, which includes but is not to limited to 3D rendering, video encoding and crunching equations. This will improve the overall general performance as compared to older processors. On top of that, it also comes equipped with Intel’s new Iris Plus integrated graphics. The new Iris Plus graphics make gaming in 1080p viable, though not at ultra-settings. However, it should be noted that this is not included with the Pro 7 version with the i3 processor. The Pro 7 model with an i3 processor and 4 GB of RAM may be a variant of the Pro 7 model, but it is probably only recommendable for users who run lighter applications.

The Surface Pro 7 comes with a MicroSDXC slot replacing the Surface Pro 6’s MicroSD slot. This simply means that the Pro 7 can accommodate higher-capacity SD cards, because MicroSD cards will work on MicroSDXC slots, but the reverse is not possible. Even though the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 does prove to have some notable differences from its Pro 6 variant, the similarities are quite obvious, too. For nearly three generations of Surface Pros, including the 5, 6 and 7, the box of the keyboard has been the same with no changes. Some also claim the Pro 7 has an undeniable similarity with its sibling, the Surface Pro 4. The Surface Pro 7 might not be able to fulfil the generational leap that was missing in the Pro 6, but Microsoft might be saving the majority of its hardware and innovations for products that will be unleashed in the near and distant horizons.

88.1% Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Review: An i7 Upgrade with Extra GPU Performance | Notebookcheck
The Surface Pro 7 features the best of what Microsoft has to offer. However, the Core i7 CPU might not be worth its price premium under all circumstances. In this particular case more CPU power also means more GPU power.
80% Microsoft Surface Pro 7 review: A 2-in-1 badly in need of an overhaul
Source: Expert Reviews English
Microsoft might well argue that it hasn’t neglected the Surface Pro 7. It’s added USB Type-C and upgraded the internals, too, but all the evidence points to a hybrid that’s badly in need of an update. The design is still nice, as ever, but it’s beginning to look dated. Meanwhile, the new silicone inside seems to be limited by the chassis. To cap it off, battery life is less impressive than I’d like it to be. Heck, Microsoft couldn’t even be bothered to borrow the neat docking system for the Surface Pen from the Surface Pro X – it still mounts magnetically to the side of the tablet whereas the Pro X has a handy pen-sized slot at the top of the keyboard. The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 is perfectly serviceable, don’t get me wrong, but it’s a marginal update that fails in any way to get the pulse racing.

The Surface Pro 7 is now $599, but should you buy one? (fanless i5 model, mini-review)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Lastly, I think 12.3″ is a bit small these days, honestly. I would like to see a more “professional” Surface Pro one day that brings back active cooling, gives us a 14″+ screen, and actually hits 8+ hours of battery life. When that happens, maybe I’ll give the SP lineup another go. For now, this one is going up on eBay.

While the Pro 7 is another fine entry in the line and tops among mainstream Windows tablets, I wouldn't tell Surface Pro 6 users to run out and get one. But if you're working with something older, or this type of device would make your working-at-home experience better, it's still one of the best 2-in-1s available. There hasn't been much worthy competition in the time since release, though the coming Lenovo ThinkPad X12 Detachable has our attention. The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is better all around as a laptop, if that's your primary concern, but the Surface Pro sets the bar for 2-in-1s in the Windows-tablet mode.

Spending a few weeks with the Surface Pro
Source: Tech Girl English
When it was time to pack the Surface Pro up and send it back I felt a twang of sadness. I’m used to using devices for a short while and returning them, but it isn’t often that I get attached. This time I did. I could easily see myself using the Surface Pro as my “work” device. While it is a tablet, it honestly felt just as good as a laptop and offered slightly more with its ability to turn into a notebook when I needed it for meetings or broadcast work. Its versatile and I think could easily look at it as a possible replacement for my MacBook with my desktop being my go to if needed for my heavy video editing.

When it was time to pack the Surface Pro up and send it back I felt a twang of sadness. I’m used to using devices for a short while and returning them, but it isn’t often that I get attached. This time I did. I could easily see myself using the Surface Pro as my “work” device. While it is a tablet, it honestly felt just as good as a laptop and offered slightly more with its ability to turn into a notebook when I needed it for meetings or broadcast work. Its versatile and I think could easily look at it as a possible replacement for my MacBook with my desktop being my go to if needed for my heavy video editing.

80% Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Review

Microsoft itself knows that the Surface Pro line is getting a little stale, which is why it launched the Surface Pro X alongside. This lighter, slicker model is based on an Arm CPU, not a traditional Intel/ x86 one, which means there might be some incompatibilities and adjustments in the near term, but it is a sign of things to come. The Surface Pro 7 thus serves a shrinking niche. It's still a great portable computer, but it isn't for everyone.

80% Surface Pro 7 review: Windows world has its own hybrid dream machine
Source: The Indian Express English
The Surface Pro 7 is ideal for those in the Windows ecosystem who need a device that is both powerful and mobile. But I am not sure you should look at this option if the portability is not something you really want. But the way Microsoft has made this, usability and convenience is not really an issue.

80% Microsoft Surface Pro 7: Still the best, still no Thunderbolt
Source: Pocket Lint English
Still the best Windows 2-in-1 around, but it remains ahead due to the lack of highly recommendable alternatives. The performance upgrade here is excellent, but design-wise the huge bezels now look dated and Microsoft's dedication to Surface Connect is somewhat puzzling.

We expected a bit more in advancements from the seventh Surface Pro tablet. USB-C is nice, but for a device at this price, its should be Thunderbolt 3. Plus, the display bezels are awfully thick for a tablet in 2019. The Surface Pro 7 isn’t big enough of a leap over the Pro 6 for us to recommend it to either upgraders or folks just getting into Microsoft’s tablet.

If you’re going to get the use out of the portability and flexible nature of the 2-in-1, the Surface Pro 7 is well worth considering, especially with the upgrades on offer compared to the Pro 6, but there are more powerful laptops at a similar price if processing power is key.

70% Microsoft Surface Pro X Review: An almost perfect laptop replacement! Almost!
Source: The Times of India English
The Surface Pro X is not a tablet meant for professionals. As long as you keep this in mind, this is a stellar tablet to use. A desktop-grade operating system on an iPad-like tablet is exactly what the WFH doctor ordered. You can do your light office work at one moment and quickly undock it to catch up with the latest Netflix show when done. The battery life is good enough and so is the 3:2 display. And, with that blessing-in-disguise kickstand, I cannot recommend any other tablet that is as comfortable to use as the Surface Pro X. In fact, I can now finally say – Yes, you can replace your laptop with a tablet. And that tablet is not an iPad; it is a Windows 11-toting Surface Pro X – a tablet that you attach your mouse and keyboard to use just like your laptop. That said, if you are seeking a proper professional tablet that can do video and photo editing with ease, you have the iPad Pro M1. If you are seeking a reliable productivity tablet, the Surface Pro 8 is worth checking out.

80% Microsoft Surface Pro X review: A peek into the future but one that throws up new questions
Source: The Indian Express English
The Surface Pro X is Microsoft’s bet on ARM processors that might be the future of Windows laptops. The Pro X is the first step in that direction – in fact, a bold one. The Surface Pro X is exciting but also frustrating at the same time. For Microsoft with the Surface Pro X and Apple with the iPad Pro, the end goal is to create a new type of computer but both devices feel less complete than a traditional Windows laptop or a MacBook running macOS. Right now, the Surface Pro X is a bit of a complicated device but has a lot of potential in the future. The success of a device like the Pro X is tied to how developers react to the ARM platform on Windows. Until that happens, I’d recommend you to get a Surface Pro 8 which has the same design as the Pro X but comes with an Intel processor inside.

Source: Make Use Of English
Overall, I recommend the Surface Pro X to those that live in the browser, or in other words, have the majority of their workflow based within web apps. The Surface Pro X is great for that, but if you're looking for a more well-rounded device, you're better off looking elsewhere. Considering the Surface Pro X is $1600 and doesn't include its main accessories, Apple's M1 Macs still offer the best value for ulta-portable all-round performance.

If you're looking for a buy or don't buy, obviously don't buy if you've got a Surface Pro X with an SQ1. But if you're looking for a slim, ultra-portable tablet that's stylish and is frankly a lot of fun, definitely have a look at the Surface Pro X.

What problems I had with the original Surface Pro X still remains on the new model, just to a lesser degree. App compatibility will be a problem for some users, although there is light at the end of the tunnel. More pressingly, the SQ2 chip in the Surface Pro X can't compete with Intel equivalents, and Apple's M1 in the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro simply does ARM better.

70% Microsoft Surface Pro X (2020) Review: All dressed up with no where to go
Source: Mobile Syrup English
The Surface Pro X (2020) with an SQ2 processor is available starting at $2,079 in Canada with 256GB of storage and 16GB of RAM. The Pro X (2019) with the SQ1 is also still available, starting at $1,349 for 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. However, keep in mind that the storage is upgradeable in the Pro X line and that the Signature Keyboard and Surface Slim Pen are sold separately. The Signature Keyboard costs $189.99 and the Slim Pen is $199.99. There’s a bundle with both for $369.99. Either way, it’s a lot of extra money on top of the already expensive Pro X (2020).

Microsoft Surface 7 Pro+ Review: Still the Leader
Source: Unbox English
Our Microsoft Surface 7 Pro+ review for the Philippines reveals that it deserves its premium price tag. While it is expensive for a computer rocking a Core i5 processor AND has no included keyboard out of the box, the main selling point of the Surface Pro 7+ is its built-in LTE-A connectivity for keeping you productive even in places where there is no WiFi, along with an upgradable SSD. There may be mixed thoughts on the latter given its caveats, but we will still take an upgradable SSD any time of the day. Being one of the pioneers of 2-in-1 laptops, the Surface Pro 7+ is still a leader, especially with how its optional Type Cover balances both form and function–with Apple’s expensive Magic Keyboard for iPad only rivaling it.

The Surface Pro 7+’s minor upgrades make it the best Microsoft tablet to date. But the changes aren't enough to justify the price rises, and with the keyboard, it becomes very expensive unless you opt for an entry-level model.

80% Microsoft Surface Pro 7+ review: More minus than plus
Source: It Pro English
Having taken stock of the changes Microsoft has made to the Surface Pro 7+, we’re really not sure why it merited launching as an entirely separate device. At its core, the only differences between this device and the Surface Pro 7 are a faster processor, a removable SSD and the option for mobile internet - none of which really feel like they’re worth all this fanfare.

The Surface Pro 7+ is a fine tablet that addresses some of the problems we had with the consumer model. Its 11th Gen Intel chips deliver faster speeds and much better graphics performance, and the tablet lasts about an hour longer on a charge than before. Those enhancements join a bright, vivid display, excellent keyboard accessory, and good cameras.

I’m still a big fan of the Surface Pro, despite the lack of design changes. Microsoft is clearly catering to a specific audience here, and the Surface Pro 7 Plus has been built for businesses. I hope that means we’ll soon see a consumer-focused Surface Pro that mixes everything that’s great about the Surface Pro X with the power and performance of Intel’s chips.

80% Surface Pro 7+ review: Iris Xe graphics and 4G LTE make a big difference
Source: Neowin English
One of my biggest issues with the Surface Pro is that it still hangs onto all of that legacy stuff. It's still got the massive bezels, and it still has the Surface Connect port instead of going all-in on USB Type-C. But of course, these things are exactly what businesses want. They want the old chargers they have lying around to work in the new model, and they want their Type Covers to work so they don't have to buy new ones. It all makes sense for a business audience.

We still don’t know why this tablet wasn’t called the Surface Pro 8. That’s how much the Surface Pro 7+ has improved over the Surface Pro 7. Because the new Tiger Lake CPU appears to have played a major role in this upgrade, we’ll be interested to see how the Surface Pro 7+ compares to other Tiger Lake-based tablets coming down the pike. If you’d like to wait to shop the alternatives, we understand.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7+ for Business
Source: PC Mag English
The Surface line always brings a bit of a price premium along with it, so it’s not the most budget-friendly option, but you do get what you pay for in design and build quality. This isn’t the next big thing in Surface Pro design. (We’ll see what happens when the Pro 8, or whatever the successor is called, comes along.) But it is a solid iteration on what's still the best detachable 2-in-1 around, one we can easily recommend to entrepreneurs and IT buyers alike shopping for a new business-friendly convertible.

The new Surface Pro Plus has a few extra features to appeal to the business and education crowds. IT departments will appreciate the new emphasis on remote deployment. With Windows Autopilot, for example, devices can ship directly from Microsoft to employees, already configured with your company's security settings and software, so an IT person won't have to unbox each Surface, image it, rebox it and send it on to the employee. The new surface 7 Pro Plus also has a removable SSD drive for extra data security.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8, i7-1185G7

The latest to join the Microsoft family is the Microsoft Surface Pro 8. Microsoft has finally taken the aging design of the Surface Pro line-up and completely modernized it with this latest model. This is the biggest change which has been seen on this flagship device in years, rolling out some long-overdue design improvements like thinner bezels, rounded edges, and the inclusion of the Thunderbolt 4. In terms of its design, the Surface Pro 8 brings some much-needed design improvements to the table. The easiest one to notice has to be the new graphite colour, which definitely looks incredible. While it may seem like Microsoft has been focusing on lighter shades for its devices in recent years, the darker colours with this year's line-up looks awesome.

Apart from that, the chassis is also refined, with more rounded edges, that seem much more comfortable to be held for longer periods of time, rather than the flat sides with sharper corners. In addition, the bezels are also smaller, and this is that final thing that makes the Surface Pro 8 look like an all-new device, rather than a relic from the early 2010s. This is because this feature makes the screen look so much bigger, and makes the device look more premium than ever, which is definitely a good thing.

As for its display, the Surface Pro 8 has been incorporated with a 13-inch PixelSense display with a resolution of 2,880 x 1,920. Well, the thing that makes this display even better is that along with the bigger size, it also has a 120Hz refresh rate. While it is definitely not a gaming device, even for everyday computing, this is a great feature to rely on. It is worth mentioning that the display is configured to 60Hz out of the box, mainly in the interest of boosting battery life, but it can be enabled at any time by going into the display settings. Overall, the Surface Pro 8’s display hits 103% of the sRGB spectrum and has a peak brightness of 467 nits, which makes it an incredibly gorgeous display.

In terms of its battery, the Surface Pro 8 knocks comes in with 8 hours and 15 minutes lifespan, making this a device that can be totally used to work all day without needing a charger. As for its performance, this device has been equipped with the Intel Core i7-1185G7 processor paired with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The GPU for this model is Intel Iris Xe Graphics. Apart from that, this laptop too has a great 1080p webcam and microphone which would be a great feature for zoom calls. This is definitely a feature needed in this work-from-home era. In a nutshell, it is a great device to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.

100% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 review: The king of Windows tablets
Source: Expert Reviews English
Having said all that, the Surface Pro 8 is a very hard act to beat for sheer versatility. Used solo, it’s an excellent tablet, but when combined with the Surface Pro Signature keyboard it’s a thoroughly competent and powerful laptop replacement, while the Surface Slim Pen 2 turns it into a handy graphics tool. Some will bemoan the absence of an affordable Core i3 entry model but, if you only have room for one Windows device in your life and expect to be carrying it around with you a lot, then the new Surface Pro 8 has to be top of the list of devices to look at.

80% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 review: still leading the way in 2-in-1 laptops
Source: T3 English
The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 improves on what came before it in a few big ways whilst maintaining the essence of the Surface Pro series. This is one of the best 2-in-1 laptops for those who plan to use it in each form equally, it switches between laptop and tablet without any fuss. If you don’t intend to use it much as a laptop, this is one of the most powerful tablets you can buy. It’ll be great for note-taking and drawing too. Not everything about it is perfect, the battery life could use a boost and it’s a shame there’s no MicroSD card slot. But when it comes down to it the only reasons I would say not to buy this is if you already own the Surface Pro 7 or if you’re only planning to use it as a laptop because you can get more power for your money elsewhere and the design of the keyboard means it’s not going to be quite comfortable enough to use on the go.

As the latest in Microsoft's 2-in-1 lineup, the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 feels like a next-gen device. Its exceptional display quality makes watching videos a delight. The powerful CPU ensures you won’t experience significant slowdown when browsing the web, video chatting or performing other everyday tasks. Windows 11 also feels like it was tailor-made for the device. Gaming on the Surface 8 Pro leaves much to be desired, and the battery life doesn’t last as long as Microsoft claims. The Surface Slim Pen 2 and Surface Pro accessories pair brilliantly with the device but you have to spend additional money for them. While not perfect, the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 is a solid 2-in-1 Windows 11 tablet that's a satisfying upgrade over the Surface Pro 7.

Ultimately, the Surface Pro 8 is an excellent improvement on the Surface Pro formula. That’s great news if you like the 2-in-1 form factor with a kickstand and detachable keyboard. If you don’t like that, I don’t think the Pro 8 does anything that will win you over. If you’ve got an older Surface Pro model and really like it, but are in the market for something newer and faster, the Pro 8 is a great choice. There are alternate 2-in-1s from other PC manufacturers that offer a similar form factor and experience, but I find they often don’t stack up to Microsoft’s Surface Pro line when it comes to features, build quality and other aspects.

Unfortunately, all those much-needed improvements come with a price increase. With its price of entry at $1,099 / £999 / AU$1,649, the Surface Pro 8 is also the most expensive – a lot more than its predecessor, the Surface Pro 7, that started at $749 / £799 / AU$1,249 – and that makes it harder to sell.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 isn’t a huge step forward for Microsoft’s tablet line, but it’s a definite move in the right direction. The device fixes a number of niggling flaws in past Surface Pro’s designs and offers key performance upgrades thanks to the inclusion of Thunderbolt connectivity, an Intel 11th Gen CPU and 120Hz refresh rate screen. This makes it a better option for buyers that want a laptop first and tablet second, if you invest in the optional keyboard cover. But it’s desktop-focussed Windows 11 software makes it a poor choice for anyone that just wants a tablet first and foremost.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Review
Source: Toptenreviews English
One of the biggest downfalls of the Surface Pro 7 was its battery life, lasting a paltry 3 hours and 12 minutes in the PCMark 8 battery test. We’ve since graduated to PCMark 10, but the Surface Pro 8 knocks that number out of the park with 8 hours and 15 minutes, making this a device you can totally use to work all day without needing a charger. This is probably largely due to Microsoft’s decision to adhere to the Intel Evo program and to limit the refresh rate of the display to 60Hz by default. With how portable the Surface Pro 8 is, it’s nice to know it’s not going to run out of battery within a couple of hours, as the charger can add extra bulk. The numbers are slightly less impressive with our video playback test, where the Surface Pro 8 lasts just 6 hours and 32 minutes, but that’s still a pretty nice little Netflix binge. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably realised that video conferencing is more important now than it has ever been, and having a laptop (or tablet) with a decent webcam is a godsend, as we all want to look good in our morning meetings.

We’ve since graduated to PCMark 10, but the Surface Pro 8 knocks that number out of the park with 8 hours and 15 minutes, making this a device you can totally use to work all day without needing a charger. This is probably largely due to Microsoft’s decision to adhere to the Intel Evo program and to limit the refresh rate of the display to 60Hz by default. With how portable the Surface Pro 8 is, it’s nice to know it’s not going to run out of battery within a couple of hours, as the charger can add extra bulk. The numbers are slightly less impressive with our video playback test, where the Surface Pro 8 lasts just 6 hours and 32 minutes, but that’s still a pretty nice little Netflix binge. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably realised that video conferencing is more important now than it has ever been, and having a laptop (or tablet) with a decent webcam is a godsend, as we all want to look good in our morning meetings.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Review: Still the King of the detachable - 8 generations later
Source: On MSFT English
The Surface Pro 8 now offers support for Thunderbolt 4, better GPU performance, a faster but hungrier Core i7 chip and big bright 13-inch screen. There are some downsides to the upgrade but not enough to not recommend the Pro 8 to anyone with older Pro models, moving away from the iPad Pro or pricing out the competition from Dell and Lenovo at the moment with the Latitude 13, 7320 and ThinkPad X12 here in the states. The Surface Pro 8 can run heavier, louder and hotter than some older models, but it also out performs most detachable in the market while also doubling as a dedicate workstation and ultra-portable do-everything device.

86% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 — Australian Review: A premium design, with premium price too

Microsoft's Surface line has come a long way, and nothing demonstrates that more than the new design shown off in the Surface Pro 8. A pleasing design, stylish to boot, offering incredible productivity, but there's a downside: this is very expensive, and - without spending up on accessories - you get a device that doesn't do too much.

Since the launch of the Surface Pro series, Microsoft has become more and more sophisticated, with top performance and quality, and it can be said to be a golden sign in the industry. Surface Pro 8 is as good as ever on the screen, especially after replacing the ancestral mold, it also uses a narrow bezel design, the screen display area is larger, the field of view is wider, and the overall is more refined. This new stylus is a highlight. It supports 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and tilt detection, and there is almost no delay when writing. With a 99% sRGB color gamut screen, Surface Pro 8 is also adequate as a professional drawing tool. If you want to get a more complete experience on Microsoft Surface Pro 8, the combination of the new Surface Pro special professional keyboard and the second-generation ultra-thin stylus is indispensable, especially this pen, with it, Whether you want to write, paint or code words, Surface Pro 8 will have a wider range of application scenarios.

All of this presents a question: How well do we know the Surface Pro 8? From a hardware perspective, quite well: We can certainly see the value of the larger, superior display, and the tablet’s audio sounds great, too. Sure, the webcam appears to need a little work, but that’s a tweak it should be able to implement quickly. We’re not happy with how hastily Microsoft pushed this tablet into our hands, and our initial negative reaction is still justified. That was then, however. Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8 now offers leading-edge performance at a competitive price, plus a top-notch screen and inking experience. We think that the Surface Pro 8 is simply the best Windows tablet on the market right now.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
For 2021, Microsoft has finally fulfilled the dream of Surface Pro (mostly). The latest gen Surface Pro 8 features an updated design borrowed from Surface Pro X with smaller bezels and softly rounded thin sides. The display is larger now and close to a mainstream Ultrabook size at 13”, and as ever it supports pen and touch. The updated display digitizer combined with the new MS Slim Pen 2 make for a much improved writing and drawing experience. The convertible tablet that becomes a laptop with a kickstand runs Windows 11 on Intel 11th gen Core i5 and i7 processors, now with an upgradable SSD and still soldered RAM. Thunderbolt 4 replaces legacy ports. As ever, the Type Cover keyboard and pen are sold separately. Cellular options will arrive at a later date.

As the latest in Microsoft's 2-in-1 lineup, the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 feels like a next-gen device. Its exceptional display quality makes watching videos a delight. The powerful CPU ensures you won’t experience significant slowdown when browsing the web, video chatting, or performing other everyday tasks. Windows 11 also feels like it was tailor-made for the device. Gaming on the Surface 8 Pro leaves much to be desired, and the battery life doesn’t last as long as Microsoft claims. The Surface Slim Pen 2 and Surface Pro accessories pair brilliantly with the device but you have to spend additional money for them. While not perfect, the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 is a solid 2-in-1 Windows 11 tablet that's a satisfying upgrade over the Surface Pro 7.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 isn’t a quantum leap forward from its predecessors. Still, it makes enough crucial upgrades to an already excellent 2-in-1 tablet to once again put it among the top 2-in-1 laptops. The added screen size and reduced bezels make for a more modern look, while the rounded edges give it a much more tablet-friendly feel backed up by some of the new software touches in Windows 11. For creatives or prolific note-takers, the new Slim Pen 2 combined with the Type Cover gives you a built-in stylus with a tactile feel that makes for an improved inking experience. A bit more battery life would have been outstanding and the price jump may be hard for some to swallow. However, taken as a whole, the Surface Pro 8 is a solid addition to the Surface lineup and a compelling option for those looking to upgrade their laptop for the move to Windows 11.

While the Surface Pro 8 doesn't revolutionize the Pro line to its core, it does deliver the most meaningful update to the product in years. The new design is more aesthetically pleasing, along with the more concrete, practical advantage of a larger display. All-around performance is solid, at least in our Core i7 configuration, especially when you consider thermal challenges in a build this size. That said, both the starting price and the configuration-uptick options are up there, so the Pro 8 doesn't offer the absolute most bang for your buck versus a more traditional laptop with nearly the same specs. Some premium clamshell models with close-size screens, like the classic Dell XPS 13 and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9, price out similarly. (The big price boosters, in their cases, are the options for higher-than-1080p touch screens.) But you can also find well-outfitted models with better specs for around the same price. We priced out another Intel Evo contender: the $1,799 MSI Summit Flip E13, for example, with 32GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD...but with a 1,920 by 1,200 touch screen.

85% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 review: A better but pricier hybrid
Source: Engadget English
The Surface Pro is incrementally better in its eighth generation, with a fast-refreshing screen, much-requested Thunderbolt 4 support and a return to long battery life. But it’s also more expensive than ever, with a $350 higher starting price that effectively wipes out any price advantage it once had over premium ultraportable laptops. The pricier the Surface Pro gets, the more caveats I have to append to my recommendation. The pen-on-tablet experience is lovely, but the most persuasive reason for me to recommend the Surface Pro is the 120Hz display. It truly makes a difference in everyday use. Microsoft needs to do a better job communicating the benefits to would-be buyers, though. I understand why it’s disabled out of the box (battery life, duh), but how will average users find it if they’re not in the know? And as of this writing, the 120Hz refresh rate doesn’t get a prominent mention on Microsoft’s product page. Meanwhile, as good as the typing experience and battery life are, they’re not necessarily superior to a comparably priced notebook.

85% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Review: The Best Of Both Worlds
Source: The Verge English
Of course, the flip side of all this is that the Surface Pro isn’t cheap, even for what it offers. Models start at $1,099 — but that’s going to be $1,279 with the keyboard cover, and $1,379 with the Slim Pen 2. I also don’t expect too many people to buy that base model, which only has 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM — my test model, which has a faster processor, twice the RAM, and 256GB storage, nets $1,879 with the keyboard and stylus, is going to be more reasonable for many workloads. You can get any number of regular clamshell laptops with its specs for a few hundred dollars less, including the MacBook Pro and the Dell XPS 13. That doesn’t make the Surface Pro 8 a bad device. It just makes it a somewhat specific device. It’s really targeting enthusiasts for the Surface Pro form factor — people who need the most performance in the thinnest and lightest chassis possible. In the past, those people haven’t quite had a device that met all of their needs. For the past two years, you’ve had to compromise on performance to get a Windows tablet that looked this cool.

Hands on: Surface Pro 8 review
Source: Techradar English
We were expecting the Surface Pro 8 to be the most predictable and boring entry in Microsoft's 2021 Surface lineup, but we were pleasantly surprised. Microsoft has brought a lot of improvements that we were asking for, along with a much-needed boost to its internal components. That does come with a higher price tag, however, which will be a tough pill to swallow for some. It's going to be interesting to see it side-by-side against the iPad Pro with an M1, because that's going to be its toughest competition. Either way, though, it should still be a compelling product for artists that are more comfortable on a Windows platform.

When we talk about going hands on with the Surface Pro 8, there’s not that much to say. After all, it’s mostly a redesign, and this new design has been seen on the Surface Pro X. Other features, such as removable storage, Intel 11th-gen processors, and 4G LTE have been seen on the Surface Pro 7+. But this design finally modernizes the Intel-powered Surface Pro lineup. Seriously, if you looked at a Surface Pro 7 in a store and saw it sitting next to competing devices, you’d think that it was made in 2015. Of course, that’s because it essentially was. The dimensions haven’t changed in any meaningful way since the Surface Pro 4. This is the next generation of Surface, and it’s a lot sexier.

Comment

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).


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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. Clocks with Update to 1050 MHz depending on the CPU Model.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640: Integrated graphics card (GT3e), which is used for some Kaby Lake CPUs (ULV models, 15 Watts).

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Qualcomm Adreno 685: Integrated graphics card in the Microsoft SQ1 ARM SoC. Similar to the Adreno 680 in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx SoC for Windows laptops but higher clocked and therefore with a higher theoretical performance (2 versus 1.8 TFlops).

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 (Ice Lake 64 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G4 (Ice Lake 48 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 48 of the 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel produced.

Intel Iris Xe G7 80EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 80 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

Intel Iris Xe G7 96EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 96 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

SQ1: ARM based SoC for Windows laptops that is manufactured in 7 nm LPP at TSMC. It is based on the Snapdragon 8cx but with higher clocked CPU and GPU cores. The CPU cores clock with up to 3 GHz. Furthermore, a Qualcomm X24 LTE modem (2 Gbps download) is integrated in the chip.

Intel Ice Lake:

i7-1065G7: Ice Lake-based quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The four cores are clocked at 1.3 GHz to 3.9 GHz and should offer 18% more IPC (instructions per clock) than the previous generations (and therefore partly close the clock speed gap). Produced on first-gen 10 nm Intel process.

i5-1035G4: Ice-Lake based low power quad core processor for thin and light laptops. Integrated four Sunnycove cores clocked at 1.1 - 3.7 GHz that support Hyperthreading (8 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates a relatively fast Iris Plus G4 graphics card  and Wifi 6 / Thunderbolt partly integrated. The chip is manufactured in the modern 10nm process at Intel.
