According to the foreign media Microsoft Windowscentral, at CES 2021, Microsoft did not launch Surface Pro 8 for consumers, but launched a new Surface Pro 7+ for the enterprise and education markets.
Naijatechnews learned that the most exciting change in Surface Pro 7 + is SSD. Following Surface Pro X and Surface Laptop 3, Microsoft has introduced a replaceable SSD design for Surface Pro 7 +.
Just like Surface Pro X, users can replace the hard drive with a Torx T3 screw.
In terms of configuration, the Surface Pro 7+ is equipped with Intel’s 11th-generation processor. Microsoft claims that the Surface Pro 7+ is now “2.1 times faster” than the previous model. Surface Pro 7 + can choose 11th generation Core i3 (no fan), Core i5 (no fan) and Core i7. In addition to performance improvements, Intel’s 11th generation also brings significantly better battery life. Microsoft now claims that the Surface Pro+ can reach 15 hours of battery life and can charge 80% in less than an hour. In contrast, the Surface Pro 7 based on Intel’s 10th-generation Core has a battery life of only 10.5 hours.
For the first time, Surface Pro 7 + has an optional 32GB memory, with Core i7 and 1TB internal storage, and the price will reach 2,800 US dollars. Surface Pro 7 + is also available with 4G LTE. You should know that Microsoft’s last Surface Pro equipped with LTE technology was released in 2017 (but it was not shipped until early 2018).
The following is the price information of Surface Pro 7 +:
