It is also the most lightweight Surface the company has designed, weighing just 768g and is 8.5mm slim. The device as well provides 8GB RAM and 256GB internal.

The new hinge on the Microsoft Surface Pro adjusts to 165 degrees so that the Surface Pro can be put into Studio Mode, an optimal position for writing and sketching.

There is a Signature Type Cover offering qualitative scissor mechanism and "1.3 mm of key travel for faster and more accurate typing".

The New Surface Pro is a productivity-oriented device for professionals looking for a compact and small-screen notebook that can be used as a tablet when required. A full-size glass trackpad with five-finger multi-touch capabilities allows for ultimate precision, and the entire keyboard is wrapped in soft yet durable Alcantara material, creating a comfortable palm rest and handsome aesthetic.
