Microsoft Surface Pro : Review And Specs

Microsoft Surface Pro

Microsoft Surface Pro is the one pf the best 2 in 1 laptop right now in the market. It is the fifth-generation surface pro.  It hasn’t been completely redesign nor does it have any new revolutionary features. But it does have some small but important updates in this review. I’m going to talk about what’s new? , is it worth it or not?

It improves the 165 degree kickstand which allows the surface to get closer well to the actual surface. And of course is a stronger magnet for the surface pen it still weighs. So it comes with USB 3.0 port a mini display port and a micro SD card slot. It seems that Microsoft still doesn’t think USB type-c is ready. But the lack of port is frustrating and having a third port using USB type-c would have been a nice compromise. The Surface Pro is technically a tablet on its own. It transform into full laptop experience with the given keyboard accessories. The new clock-like extra looks keyboard fels slightly improved from the last model with satisfying amount of depth of every key press. The keyboard are still sold separately for about $130 though.

Microsoft unveiled a new pen to go alongside the Surface Pro. It’s no  longer including the box and is more expensive than before at $100. The new pen feature 4096 levels of pressure double the previous version and it’s even more useful for artists. Since you can tilt  it to the side shade in your drawings. Performance-wise the Surface Pro feels on par with most other ultra portables including the Surface Laptop.

The Surface Pro starts at $799 with a core I3 processor and paltry amount of RAM storage. But if you are going to get one I suggest saving up for the $12.99 Core I5 processor with 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB  SSD.
