Believe it or not, India didn’t get the latest Surface devices until recently. We’re talking about the Surface Pro X, Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3, that are only now on sale in the second most populous country in the world. These devices were announced late last year in USA.
Surface Pro X is a combo, a 2 in 1 laptop and tablet with a 13 inch narrow bezel PixelSense display. Inside we find a custom ARM processor, the Microsoft SQi, based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon design. There’s also 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, plus 4G LTE connectivity and dual 4K output via USB-C. There’s also an Alcantara covered keyboard as an accessory, which also houses the Surface Slim Pen. Microsoft promises up to 13 hours of battery life and fast charging (80% in an hour). The Pro X is priced at around $1308 and it only comes in matte black.
Surface Pro 7 relies on a more powerful Intel Core 10th gen CPU, plus a smaller 12.3 inch PixelSense screen and a variety of USB-C and USB-A and Surface Connect ports. The starting price is $965 in this case and it gives you a Core i3 CPU, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. If you want the top of the line model with Core i7 and 16 GB of RAM, you’re going to spend $1877 on it. That one comes in matte black and platinum.
Meanwhile, the Surface Laptop 3 comes in two diagonal sizes: 13.5 inch and 15 inches. The smaller one relies on a 10th gen Intel Core CPU, while the bigger one curiously opts for a custom AMD CPU, tailor made for Microsoft. This time the starting price is $1307 for the small unit and $1547 for the big model.
