On Wednesday, September 22nd, Microsoft held an online event to announce the redesigned and upgraded Surface laptops and tablets. At its Surface 2021 event, Microsoft unveiled some portable computing devices, including the Surface Pro 8 and the Surface Go 3. The new Surface Pro 8 features Intel’s 11th generation chips, as well as the new Slim Pen 2 and minor design changes. The Surface Go 3 is also on the market, and it uses Intel’s 10th generation chips, which are said to provide 60% faster performance.
Pricing and Availability of the Microsoft Surface Pro 8, Surface Go 3
Starting on October 5, the all-new Microsoft Surface Go 3 will be available alongside Windows 11 for $399. The Surface Pro 8 costs $1,100 and is now available for pre-order in the United States. The keyboard and pen, however, are not included with the tablet and must be purchased separately.
Specifications of the Microsoft Surface Pro 8
The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 has a 13-inch PixelSense display with a 2,880×1,920-pixel resolution and a 120Hz high refresh rate screen that uses Windows 11’s new Dynamic Refresh Rate feature. The panel also supports Dolby Vision and Adaptive Color Technology. The built-in kickstand can be adjusted to a variety of angles to provide you with the ideal working angle. The Slim Pen 2, which promises more precise inking, is also housed in the new kickstand. For the first time, the pen is said to produce “tiny mechanical vibrations” that can be used to simulate dragging a pen across paper.
It runs Windows 11 and has Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors from the 11th generation. It can be equipped with up to 32GB of RAM and a 1TB NVMe SSD drive. A 10-megapixel rear-facing camera with 4K video recording support and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera that can record videos in up to 1080p resolution are included. Finally, Microsoft has retired the USB A port, which has been replaced by Thunderbolt 4. Two USB-C Thunderbolt 4 connectors are included, as well as the standard Surface Connect charging port. Connecting to 4K monitors, using high-speed external storage, and more is now possible thanks to Thunderbolt 4.
