Microsoft has launched the latest Surface Pro device in the UAE, allowing consumers and professionals to take advantage of Windows 10 creativity and productivity.
The company said that with a longer battery life, enhanced performance and a superior display, the new Surface Pro has been re-engineered to suit the needs of everyone – from artists to architects.
The new Surface Pro’s battery allows users to keep working for up to 13.5 hours in front of a 12.3-inch PixelSense Display. Thanks to a fan-less design, the firm also claims it to be the “quietest Surface” it has ever produced. And the Surface Pro enjoys a hyper-slim profile, which means it weighs less than the bag it will be carried in.
The Surface Pro Signature Type Cover is designed for optimum portability and convenience, wrapped in Alcantara material that comes in various colours, including Platinum, Burgundy and Cobalt Blue. And the new Surface Pen enables creativity with enhanced responsiveness that allows drawing on the device’s screen as if it were paper, said the firm.
The device’s 7th-generation Intel Core m3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors work to bring the highest standards of performance. Users can choose from a range of configurations, from the Intel Core m3 with 4GB RAM and 128GB of SSD storage, to the Intel Core i7 with 16 GB RAM and 1TB of SSD storage. Each option is designed and priced for the demands of different use-cases, so consumers and businesses can choose the Surface that suits their needs.
The new Surface Pen now has 4,096 points of pressure sensitivity with tilt, and virtually imperceptible latency, making it responsive. Bench tests reveal that when used with the new Surface Pro, the Surface Pen is twice as responsive as the Apple Pencil, said the company.
The re-engineered Surface Pro ships with Windows 10 Creators Update and has been designed for the applications users need to be productive. The device has been optimised for Windows Hello and Microsoft Office 365, with new inking features in Word, Excel and PowerPoint designed to work best with the new Surface Pen on Surface Pro.
“Powered by Windows 10, the Surface Pro has been re-engineered from the bottom up, to deliver on Microsoft’s ongoing pledge – to help every individual and organisation on the planet to achieve more,” said Mohammed Arif, windows and devices business group lead, Microsoft Gulf. “Whether at work or at home, innovating or relaxing, the Surface Pro is there for whatever you need. It has the power to run the most resource-heavy professional applications, but also has the power to entertain. We have been encouraged and excited over the years by our customers’ warm response to the Surface family. From its potent Core processors to its broad, bright, densely pixelated display, the new Surface Pro exudes a best-in-class aura that we are confident will continue that success story.”
Beginning September 20th with prices starting at AED 4,499, the Surface Pro including the type cover will be available for consumers to buy from here or from major electronics retailers across the UAE, and for commercial customers from here.
