Tech News – Microsoft’s new Surface gear is out now – and showcases Windows at its best


When it comes to productivity, no operating system is better equipped to provide you with the tools you need to get the job done than Windows 10. And, with the arrival of Microsoft's newest Surface devices, the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3, those tools are now more powerful than ever.

Updated with new 10th-generation Intel Core processors and, for the first time, AMD’s impressive 3rd-generation Ryzen chips, the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 are up to twice as fast as their predecessors, ensuring that your work and creativity is never hampered by inferior performance.

Combined with Office 365, the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3s allow users to produce work without compromise, all while maintaining a level of security that businesses and individuals can rely on to keep themselves protected.

And, thanks to their increased accessibility, sleek design and remarkable portability, Microsoft's Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 will actually make you think twice about committing to a stationary desktop computer.

Here are just some of the reasons why Microsoft's Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3s showcase Windows at its very best.

Designed to suit your lifestyle 

Whether you're after a computer for business or to fulfil your bursting creativity, there's a wide variety of Surface devices that are designed to suit your unique needs.

The stylish and slim Surface Laptop 3 is available in an Intel-powered 13.5-inch model and a new 15-inch AMD Ryzen option, while the Surface Pro 7 is offered in a 12.3-inch Intel version. 

Both products' displays are presented in Microsoft's signature 3:2 aspect ratio, giving users a better view of their work and media. Nested right between 4:3 and the wider 16:9 aspect ratios, the unique 3:2 ratio lets users view their work without a lot of wasted space on either side of the display – perfect for sketching, reading or for use with spreadsheets and documents in Office 365.

In terms of aesthetics, the Surface Laptop 3 comes in two finishes and a variety of colours. The metal finish option gives the powerful notebook a slick aluminium sheen, but if you're after something a little more lush, the latest Surface Laptop is once again offered with an Alcantara finish, adorning the device's keyboard with the same suede-like synthetic textile that's used in high-end sports car interiors.

Meanwhile, the Surface Pro 7 offers more versatility than ever before, with a selection of accessories allowing users to tailor their device to their unique personality. Microsoft’s magnetic Signature Type Cover not only protects the Surface Pro 7’s display, it also provides a full keyboard experience, complete with LED backlighting on the keys and a large glass trackpad for superb responsiveness. Also available in several colours, the Signature Type Cover is complemented by the same luxurious Alcantara material that’s offered with the Surface Laptop 3.

To your specifications

When it comes to your productivity, nothing should get in your way – especially the performance of your device’s hardware. That is why the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 have been built to provide next-gen power, regardless of your chosen configuration.

Boasting the latest 10th-generation Intel Core processors, both the Surface Pro 7 and 13.5-inch Surface Laptop 3 utilise advanced intelligent performance features to deliver the most responsive experience possible. And, thanks to the inclusion of Intel-powered Wi-Fi 6 networking, your productivity can remain unhampered by bothersome wireless connection dropouts.

Despite its sleek dimensions, the Surface Pro 7 doesn’t skimp when it comes to speed. It can be configured with up to 16GB of RAM, with the option of dual-core Intel Core i3 or quad-core i5 and i7 processors.

Meanwhile, Microsoft’s new 15-inch Surface Laptop 3 is a true powerhouse, running on AMD’s powerful 3rd-generation Ryzen chips – a first for any Microsoft Surface product. This provides the larger Surface Laptop 3 model with a 15% increase in graphics performance and 10% more processor performance.

Accessibility is also very important, which is why the Surface Pro 7 and both the Surface Laptop 3s offer a combination of USB Type-A and USB Type-C ports, meaning you don’t need additional adapters to plug in your essential accessories.

Your work is secure with Windows 10 

We all know the importance of protecting your data, which is why Windows 10 Home has implemented a number of features that make it easy to keep your work safe and secure – particularly on the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3. 

With the exceptionally convenient and password-free Windows Hello sign-in, you can unlock both the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 instantly by simply facing your device. And of course, the option for more traditional password or PIN security is also provided.

Additionally, Surface devices with Windows 10 Home can optionally upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, should they need additional enterprise management and security tools specifically suited for the workplace. Best of all, Windows 10’s seamless Office 365 and OneDrive integration means all of your critical files are automatically backed up and kept safe in the cloud.

The Surface Laptop 3 and Surface Pro 7 are now available directly from the Microsoft Store.
