New Surface Devices

Microsoft has held their Surface Event, bringing several new upgrades to the Surface lineup, including the Surface Pro 9 and the Surface Laptop 5. I’ve owned several Surface devices, with the Surface Pro 2, 3, and 4. I’m looking at an upgrade with the Surface Laptop 5 this coming year. I would love to see more available options for upgrading the hardware (RAM and hard drive), but in a form factor so small (similar to the Apple Macbook Air), it’s understandable.

The Surface Pro lineup has a few options, with a power efficient Microsoft processor powering one of the models.

Surface Pro 9:

  • 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-1235U processor
  • 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-1255U processor
  • Options with storage 256 GB and above built on the Intel® Evo™ platform

Surface Pro 9 with 5G:

  • Microsoft SQ® 3 processor

  • Neural Processing Unit (NPU)
