What's the battery life like?

According to Microsoft, the battery on the Surface Pro 7 is capable of lasting about ten and a half hours on a full charge based on "typical Surface device usage." This isn't bad; in fact, it's average, and in general, will be enough for most users. However, it's not great either, and people who are going to want to use the device for more intensive things like editing media will likely drain the device's battery at a quicker pace.

Thankfully, the Surface Pro 7 supports Microsoft's Fast Charging capabilities. With about an hour of charging, the device will be able to regain 80% of its battery. This means that if you can stay near an outlet for part of your day, you can extend the battery life significantly.

Why get a Surface Pro 7?

There are plenty of excellent reasons to get a Surface Pro 7. The 12.3-inch 2736x1824 display is sure to look sweet, and since the device has Intel's 10th Gen CPUs, it will have exceptional computing power and compatibility with Wi-Fi 6, the latest Wi-Fi standard. On top of that, it can be fitted with up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage space, which should be more than enough for any work or leisure you'd want to do on a 2-in-1 tablet. It has a Windows Hello-compatible camera, too, which means you'll be able to take advantage of Microsoft's biometric security. The icing on the cake is the addition of a USB-C port, which is something no other Surface Pro prior to the 7 had. This will allow for faster data and power transfer speeds between the Surface Pro 7 and other devices.
