Specifications And Price
A highly responsive 12.3″ touchscreen with a presion-sensitive surface pen allows note-taking and drawing in Microsoft Surface Pro7 (R22,000) which landed in South Africa last year. Inside, it has an Intel Core i7 quad-core processor of 10th generation with up to 16GB of RAM and is thus one of the most powerful 2-in-1 laptops on the market. It also looks good because of an unboxing experience which competes with some of the cooler brands and colour combinations that enhance the aesthetics of a working environment.
Review of MS Surface Pro 7
The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 was meant to be the triumphal lap of Microsoft – or at least the chance to correct the shortcomings its predecessor, Microsoft Surface Pro 6, has had. Again, the Surface Pro line has not been the generational jump many of us have wished for, and what the crucial changes needed to continue are nothing but an iteration.
Not the lack of updates on the unit. New impressive internals are available in the Microsoft Surface Pro 7. However, these power increases have influenced his lifespan. And they are not enough, especially if Microsoft can make up for the underlying power and battery life of the new Surface Pro X.
Not to mention that Microsoft had plenty of possibilities to do more in this area. A better USB-C implementation was a major addition. It would have sufficed even slimmer screen bezels.
Rather, the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 seems calmer before an innovation storm, but it’s hard to recommend. One can only hope, however, for more exciting products like the Surface New to come in the near future, and the imminent Surface Pro 8, Microsoft is saving most of their hardware and software developments.
