What you need to know
- Microsoft announced the Surface Pro 7 at its October 2 Surface event.
- The 2-in-1 finally includes a USB-C port, Intel's 10th Gen processors, and still has the kickstand and keyboard design that the Surface Pro line is known for.
- The Surface Pro 7 is up for preorder starting at $749 and will be available on October 22, 2019.
Microsoft hit the stage at its Surface event today to unveil the refreshed Surface Pro 7. The latest version of Microsoft's flagship 2-in-1 tablet carries forward the design that we've become familiar with, but it brings some modern additions that should come as welcome improvements.
The most striking upgrade is the addition of a USB-C port — something the Surface fans have been hoping would make an appearance for some time now. That's in addition to a single USB-A like previous Surface Pros. It's a necessary compromise, with Microsoft taking a step forward in connectivity while still keeping one foot in place for legacy connectivity.
In terms of specs, you're getting a 12.3-inch Pixelsense display and options of 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB of LPDDR4x RAM. The RAM type, in particular, should represent a decent performance increase over the LPDDR3 RAM included in the previous model.
Microsoft has also gone with Intel's latest 10th Gen CPUs, with Core i3, i5, and i7 options available. In terms of storage, you're looking at 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB options.
The Surface Pro 7 will be availalbe on October 22, 2019 starting at $749.
