Microsoft Surface Pro Unveiled: ‘Mechanically Re-engineered’ Successor Of Popular Surface Pro 4

It has been approximately 2 years since the launch of the popular Surface Pro 4, and now Microsoft has launched a successor, the brand new Microsoft Surface Pro. Although it is not called the Surface Pro 5, technically this is the fifth Surface Pro. It is very well known that every time Microsoft launches any new machines, it makes subtle and some important upgrades in few areas.

According to Digital Trends, if the specs are taken into consideration for Microsoft Surface Pro, it can be seen that this device is an incremental update, not only a radical design. Microsoft refreshed the Surface Pro's CPU line-up to incorporate Intel's most recent seventh era "Kaby Lake" processors, however, there's a whole other world to the new Microsoft Surface Pro than meets the eye.

Inside, Microsoft has patched up the cooling framework to make the inner fans calmer, and for one Microsoft Surface Pro model, eliminate them totally. Truth is stranger than fiction: The Intel Core i3 and Intel Core i5 models are really fan-less, depending just on clever thermal management to keep cool. With the Surface Pro 4, that was genuine just for the m3 variant.

Forbes reported that the battery life has also been improved as compared to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 version. For Surface Pro 4, the battery life was up to 9 hours and for the brand new Microsoft Surface Pro, it has a battery backup of 13.5 hours. The display, storage as well as RAM options are same as it was in Surface Pro 4.

The new Microsoft Surface Pro is refined and refreshed. Microsoft claims to have the device 'mechanically re-engineered', as internally the device has some updated internal components, but in the case of the exterior, the device is somewhat similar to the previous Surface Pro 4. Dimensions being changed, the weight has a slight difference. But if looked together, both the devices will look identical. The price tag of the new Microsoft Surface Pro is also similar to the Surface Pro 4. Surface Pro 4 comes with a price tag of $700 and the new Microsoft Surface Pro is launched at a price tag of $800.
