Microsoft has launched the new Surface Pro (2017), and the new Surface Laptop worldwide. Both devices debuted last month, ushering in Microsoft’s new Windows SKU (Windows 10 S), Office for the Windows Store, and a host of refinements to the Surface Pro.
The Surface Laptop starts at £979/$999 and is available in over 15 countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom. It has launched to rave reviews, with its build quality being rated highly and its battery life – while not as exceptional as Microsoft portrayed – being good for the average user.
The Surface Pro has yet to be reviewed but will be presumably the same as the Surface Pro 4 in terms of its reception. Microsoft has improved the battery life, the keyboard, pen and cameras, but if you’re an average user only the first one in this list will be of interest to you. The Surface Pro 4 was notorious for its battery life, and the Pro will presumably double that thanks to its Kaby Lake processors. It’ll set you back $799/£799 before taxes if you go for the bare minimum, but the device you really want to get will cost over $1000/£799 when you add the cost of the keyboard and pen.
If you’re into the inaccessible, Microsoft’s Surface Studio will open in 13 new markets today, including Austria, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the U.K.
