In celebration of the Surface tablet’s tenth anniversary, Microsoft revealed three Surface laptops on Wednesday.
Microsoft unveiled the Surface Laptop 5, Surface Pro 9 convertible tablet, and Surface Studio 2+ all-in-one PC during an event in New York.
Starting at $1,000 are the Surface Pro 9 and the 13.5-inch Surface Laptop 5, while the Surface Studio 2+ costs $4,300. The three come with Windows 11, Microsoft’s newest operating system, released last year.
According to Microsoft, all new Surface models will be accessible in a few regions starting on October 25 and in other markets over the next several months.
These are the new gadgets’ primary characteristics.
Surface Pro 9
Microsoft’s attempt to combine a tablet with a laptop is the Surface Pro 9. It utilities an Intel with an optional 5G connection and a 12th-generation CPU. The Pro 8 was powered by an Intel 11th-generation CPU, which should be significantly slower than the 12th generation.
A 13-inch, 120Hz display is included with the Surface Pro 9. It’s sad that the 5G Pro 9 variant lacks a Thunderbolt connector, which enables quicker video file transfers.
Compared to the Surface Pro 8, the 5G model’s battery life can last up to 19 hours. The Surface Pro 9 with Intel chips has a battery life of up to 15.5 hours.
Depending on storage, the price ranges from $1,000 to $1,900.
Surface Laptop 5
Intel Core CPUs from the 12th generation are present in the Surface Laptop 5. Both the 13.5-inch and 15-inch touchscreen variants are readily accessible.
According to Microsoft, it boasts a new, improved camera for face-to-face conversations and a battery life of 17 hours. A Thunderbolt 4 connector is available for the first time on the Surface Laptop 5. It charges the laptop, provides quick data transfer for huge video files, and links it to a 4K monitor.
The Laptop 5 also boasts Dolby Vision IQ visual quality and Dolby Atmos for improved audio quality for streaming movies and TV shows.
Price ranges for the Surface Laptop 5 vary on storage and range from $1,000 to $2,400.
Surface Studio 2+
Microsoft’s all-in-one desktop PC, the Surface Studio 2+, will take the place of the Surface Studio 2 as of 2018. A zero-gravity hinge on the new 28-inch touchscreen gadget allows users to lift and lower the display. It utilities an Intel Core H-35 Processor from the 11th generation.
Users may simultaneously divide the display into four separate app windows. It has a Thunderbolt port and a USB-C port. With better audio quality provided by Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision IQ, the streaming viewing experience is also improved.
With a starting price of $4,300, the Surface Studio 2+ is more expensive than its predecessor from 2018, which has a $3,500 price tag.
