Microsoft Unveils New Surface Pro With 13.5-hour Battery Life

Microsoft Unveils New Surface Pro With 13.5-hour Battery Life Microsoft Unveils New Surface Pro With 13.5-hour Battery Life

Microsoft redesigned the Surface Pro with curved edges to make it easier to hold, and it has a kickstand that now tilts nearly flat. "There are about 800 new custom parts in the new Pro", said Panay. The Surface Pro gets you 13.5 hours of battery life versus the iPad Pro's 10 hours.

Surface Pro 4 is ultrathin, fast, and versatile, the flawless balance of portability and power.

As widely expected, the new 2017 Surface Pro isn't a major change from the current model - and it could be argued that since the Surface Pro 4 hit the sweet spot, you wouldn't want change for the sake of it.

On May 23, Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) announced an updated version of its relatively successful Surface Pro line of laptop/tablet hybrids. Before the company unveiled its newest tablet, executives were quick to point out that there "isn't a Surface Pro 5", which made many guess that there wouldn't be a whole suite of changes and upgrades in the latest hardware. Requiring just 9 grams of activation force and 21 milliseconds of latency, Panay stated that it "feels like writing or drawing on paper".

Microsoft says it plans to release additional models that include 4G LTE functionality later in the year. Over two times more accurate, with four times more pressure sensitivity than the original Surface Pen, we engineered Surface Pen to be the fastest pen ever*****. However, the new Surface Pro doesn't have a USB Type-C port, something that's common on nearly all high-end computers now.

If you're still allowed to use your laptops on the plane by the time the Surface Pro come out on June 15, it could be one of the greatest travel computers of all time. It is powered by 6th generation Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM.

Apple will also be coming out with new MacBooks and iPads. And, fortunately for Microsoft's Surface business, updates to both product lines have now been announced (though the "Surface Book" has now become the "Surface Laptop"). For better or worse, this stands in contrast to many competitor devices which have made the switch, at least partially, to the new USB-C standard. Future versions of Surface Pro, once the market is more flooded with USB-C products, I think we'll see a shrinking in size of the new Surface Pro with less outputs and maybe a large dongle with a plethora of outputs on it - an optional accessory, of course. While it's not yet widely available for all to use, Microsoft has opened a private preview for Surface Hub and education customers. Apple's iPad Pro, for instance, commands a $130 premium for its WiFi + Cellular versions.

The new model looks exactly like the Surface Pro 4 in nearly every way, but it has a wealth of new features under the hood. All settings were default except: Wi-Fi was associated with a network and Auto-Brightness disabled.
