Microsoft has now officially presented its new Surface Pro and renounced the numbering of the device. The Surface Pro represents the third generation of Microsoft’s own convertible device line with minor changes.

As already suspected in many places, the new Surface Pro with Intel’s “Kaby Lake” has received the current process generation. In addition, with the manageable hardware update the battery capacity was improved to 13.5 hours. The latency of the Surface Pen has also been improved, and there will also be new Type Cover keyboards for the Surface Pro, which are even downwards compatible. Conversely, this means that Microsoft has again refused to use USB-C type connectors as competitors like Porsche Design with the Book One Book or Wacom with the Mobile Study Pro last year. According to Microsoft, Surface Pro will be available from 9th June for a price (RRP) of 949, – Euro in Germany.

Surface Studio
Also Microsoft has announced its desktop PC, the Surface Studio for the German market, which is also available from June 15, 2017 in the trade. The Surface Studio features a 28-inch, 4.5K thin LCD screen, with 13.5 million pixels and touch. Thanks to its special “Zero Gravity” hinge, the monitor can be switched from desktop mode to the so-called studio mode, an identical 20 degree angle as on a drawing board. However, the Redmonder company has not yet commented on the sale price of Surface Studio.
