Microsoft Surface Pro(2017) Now For Sale in India

Microsoft Surface Pro feat

"The new Surface Pro delivers the versatility of a laptop and a creative studio in one thin, lightweight device", said Vineet Durani, Director - Windows and Devices, Microsoft India. The costliest model comes with Intel Core i7, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640, 16GB RAM, 512 GB SSD and is labeled at Rs. 182,999. Microsoft promises a battery life of 13.5 hours but that can vary dramatically depending on your use as we've noticed with previous generations.

The Surface Pro is an iterative upgrade for the Surface Pro 4 and the build, including the hinge and the connectors, bear a striking resemblance to its predecessor. Accessories including the Surface Pro Type Cover, Signature Type Cover, Surface Pen, and Surface Arc Mouse have also been announced in India. For the uninitiated, the Surface range is a flagship tablet and laptop lineup from Microsoft. The Surface Pro (2017) is powered by 7th generation Intel Core series processors.

The Surface Pro comes with 2736 x 1824 pixels of screen resolution with an aspect ratio of 3:2.

Coming to performance, the tablet is equipped with three processor and graphics options. The higher-end variants of the laptop with Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB RAM+128GB SSD and 16GB RAM+256GB SSD will cost Rs. 1,33,999 and Rs. 1,82,999, respectively. Microsoft claims it has not been given the name "Surface Pro 5" as the company wanted to hold out on launching a completely new product until they had achieved "meaningful change" to warrant launching it. You can also pay $ 1100 and take the model with the same CPU, but with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of ROM. It can turn into a full-fledged computer with a keyboard cover accessory, which you need to purchase separately.

After applying the discount, the current pricing of these variants are down to $799 for the 4GB RAM variants and $1,099 for the 8GB RAM variant of the Surface Pro laptop. You can add a Surface Pro Type Cover, which comes in a regular black colour and a signature platinum edition as well. The Surface Pro, launched globally in May a year ago, will be available starting February 22. Furthermore, there is a new tilt functionality for detecting the Surface Pen angle to encourage incremented natural shading.
