Yesterday Microsoft announced a new Surface Pro, offering some improvements to weight and noise output but the improvements don’t stop there.
The new Surface Pro now comes with Intel m3/i5/i7 processors. The m3 being of particular note as it allows for a fully fanless design. The fanless design also applies to the i5, no small feat of engineering. The i7 comes with a hybrid cooling design “so you can work or stream your favourite shows in peace”.
There are also improvements to battery life (up to 50% more than Surface Pro 4) and performance (up to 2.5x more than Surface Pro 3). It also works with the Surface Pen and the Surface Dial which was introduced with the Surface desktop.
As before, the type cover is finished with Alcantara and is available in a selection of colours.
The new Surface Pro starts at £799 for m3 / 4GB RAM / 128GB storage option, with the i5 model starting at £979 with 4GB RAM / 128GB storage and a version with 256 GB / 8GB RAM for £1249.
The i7 version comes in three variants, with the cheapest being £1549 (256 GB storage / 8 GB RAM), the next model with 512 GB storage and 16GB RAM for £2149 and the highest model coming with 1TB storage and 16GB RAM for £2699.
