The manufacturer is preparing for us several new products that will interest customers looking for business equipment. Finally, we will see the construction with AMD Ryzen processors.
The #MicrosoftEvent conference will be held tomorrow, during which new devices from the Surface line will be presented. For the impatient we have the first unofficial details about Surface 2-in-1, Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3. What can we expect?
Surface 2-in-1 – laptop with Snapdragon processor
The least interesting novelty is to be Surface 2-in-1, so actually a 2-in-1 laptop – the manufacturer used here a touch screen with a detachable keyboard. It can be said that this will be the answer to the competitive Samsung Galaxy Book S.
The device is based on the Snapdragon 8cx processor (this is an ARM chip that was typically designed for laptops with Windows 10). Two USB type C ports are derived from the housing. There is also a new Surface Pen.
Surface Pro 7 with Intel Ice Lake processors
The new Surface Pro also belongs to 2-in-1 devices, but we are talking about a more efficient design – it is business equipment for customers expecting a good and mobile computer. The housing has a USB type C port (instead of mini-DisplayPort), standard USB 3.0 and a micro SD memory card reader.
The device will be available in configurations with Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors from the latest generation Ice Lake. In addition, 4 GB, 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM and SSD with a capacity of 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB.
Surface Laptop 3 for the first time with AMD processors
The Surface Laptop looks the most interesting – as previously announced, the device will be available in 13-inch and 15-inch versions. Importantly, the manufacturer gave up the cover of the Alcantara keyboard and instead used an aluminum-magnesium casing. More perceptive ones will probably also notice a larger touichpad.
Inside, apparently, there was an AMD Ryzen 5 3550U or Ryzen 7 3750U processor, up to 16 GB of RAM and an SSD with a capacity of up to 1 TB. There are also speculations about configurations with 6- and 8-core processors in the network, but it is difficult to confirm them yet.
New devices will be presented at tomorrow's conference. Then we should know the exact technical specification and details about availability. We can not wait!
