Microsoft combines the portability of a tablet and the performance of a laptop with the 2017 version of the Surface Pro 12.3″ 256GB Multi-Touch Tablet. Weighing just 1.73 pounds and measuring just 0.33″ thin, the Surface Pro packs a 7th-Gen (Kaby Lake) 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-7660U processor into a magnesium casing with a silver finish. Use the multi-position Kickstand and the Surface Pro Type Cover (sold separately) to turn the Surface Pro into a laptop. The updated Surface Pen (sold separately) provides up to 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.
The Surface Pro features a 12.3″ PixelSense display with a 2736 x 1824 screen resolution (267 ppi) and a 3:2 aspect ratio. The display is also a 10-point touch support, so you can take full advantage of the multi-touch gestures incorporated into Windows 10 Pro. If you want to play video on an external display, you can do so using the Mini DisplayPort output.
The Intel Core i7-7660U processor has a base clock of 2.5 GHz but can boost up to 4.0 GHz when performing demanding tasks. It also has integrated Intel Iris plus Graphics 640. The Surface Pro has 8GB of RAM, a 256GB solid state drive, a microSD media card slot, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a 5MP front-facing camera, an 8MP rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video recording, and dual integrated microphones. There are also built-in stereo speakers with Dolby audio.
Windows 10 Pro is the installed operating system. The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for businesses users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
Transform Surface Pro into Laptop Mode by opening the built-in Kickstand and adding a removable Surface Pro Signature Type Cover.
Lower the Kickstand – now featuring a deeper, next-generation hinge – to place Surface Pro in Studio Mode for the perfect writing and drawing angle.
Close the Kickstand, and remove or fold Surface Pro Signature Type Cover back for a powerful, stand-alone Intel tablet.
