5 reasons we love the Microsoft Surface Pro
Default reason to love it: It's so beautiful
1. It's really versatile
The newly launched Microsoft Surface Pro is essentially a tablet, but for all intents and purposes, it works like your dream compact computer. Most of us work on the go nowadays, so our gadgets have got to be up to speed in terms of design and capacity. That's where the Surface Pro comes in. You can use it in laptop mode, studio mode and tablet mode. The laptop mode lets you open up the built-in kickstand which you can prop your device on and utilise the Alcantara-made keyboard (sold separately), while studio mode lets you lower the kickstand to make it easier for writing and drawing with the Surface Pen. So you choose how you want to use it, where you want to use it.
2. It's powerful
The Surface Pro comes with three Intel Core processor options: m3, i5, and i7. The m3 and i5 models feature a fan-less cooling system while the i7 has an improved hybrid cooling built-in. You no longer have to worry about overheating while you Netflix and chill, or run any big programmes for work. For all your artistic needs, the Surface Pro keeps up with its 12.3 Pixel Sense Display (267 PPI resolution) and 3D creation tools, which translates to beautiful, crisp images onscreen.
3. It's light and slim
Unlike Microsoft's previous Surface models, the Surface Pro is noticeably lighter. Even the heaviest version (i7) weighs only 784g, making it easy to carry around with you. At only 8.5mm thick (or thin, depending on how you look at it), fitting the tablet into your bag won't be an issue, either.
4. It lasts all day
The Surface Pro has a battery life of 13.5 hours of video playback. It's also got up to 16GB of RAM and comes in the options of 128GB, 256GB, 512GB or 1TB SSD hard drive. Again, it reinforces its ability to accommodate your needs on-the-go.
5. It looks really good
Besides the luxurious Alcantara keyboard, you can also customise your Surface Pro. Choose from colours like burgundy, cobalt blue and platinum for both the device as well as its accompanying gadgets like the Surface Arc Mouse, Surface Pro Signature Type Cover, Surface Pen and Surface Dial (each sold separately).
