Meet Surface Pro – Biggest Update Yet
In June 2012, Microsoft announced its first Surface hybrid tablet. Not only was it the first of its kind, but the first hardware designed, built and sold by Microsoft to work perfectly with the software giant’s Windows operation system. Since then the company has built out its Surface hardware lineup to meet the needs of students, home and professional users.The new Microsoft Surface Pro is clearly benchmarked for the world’s tablet market and doing a great job with every improved version.

Surface Pen, Mouse and Keyboard
The 4,096 pressure points on the pen respond to the lightest touch, making it easier to sketch, shade and paint. The new pen has a Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity and weighs around 20 gm. The arc mouse, has a sleek design. Its surface has a rubbery coating and there’s a button used for multi-tasking – scrolling, right click, etc. Meanwhile, with magnetic attachments to the tablet, the keyboard easily snaps and stays firm onto the device. Unfortunately, the Surface Pro comes prepped out of the box for tablet mode only, leaving it up to you whether or not to spend extra money to get a mouse and keyboard.
Design and Battery
It has an impressive hinge for better ‘studio mode’ that bends as much as 165 degrees, giving a perfect stand for drawing. Once placed at a particular angle, the kickstand is sturdy and gives proper support.
However, as a successor to the very successful Microsoft Surface Pro 4, does it succeed? The Microsoft Surface Pro may look like its predecessor, but it really is differentiated in its own space. Not only does it feature longer battery life, its design also embodies what the best Windows tablets should be. At first glance, the new Surface Pro looks very much similar with the last Surface Pro 4, but a sharp pair of eyes would notice the magnesium-aluminium alloy frame is more rounded at the edges than before. The new Surface Pro comes in at 0.33 inches (8.4mm) of thickness with its 1.73 pounds (786g). Considering there’s a 20% larger battery, it’s an amazing feat.
The Microsoft Surface Pro has a high-quality display, with great viewing angles. Its 12.3-inch PixelSense display, with a resolution of 2736 x 1824 pixels, makes colours vibrant on the screen.The IPS LCD display has soothing colours – not too saturated – unlike the AMOLED displays. Generally, the maximum brightness on the screen is acceptable so you can easily enjoy watching movies anytime you wish.
With or without the Type Cover, the Surface Pro runs Windows 10 Pro and is ready for your apps and games with full compatibility with x86 and x64 apps. The Surface Pro is said to be comparable with high-end laptops like Dell, Hewlett-Packett and Acer without being bulky and huge.It’s also a great 2-in-1 for web browsing, light video editing, and productivity work if you buy the Microsoft Surface Type Cover too.
