Microsoft announced today that pre-orders for the Surface Laptop 5 and Surface Pro 9 have started today November 15 in India. Microsoft recently shared their vision for the next generation of Windows PCs, in which the PC and cloud interact and AI unlocks new experiences.
Surface Pro 9
The device has a built-in kickstand and a 13″ PixelSense display with a 120Hz refresh rate and wide colour gamut. Under the display are an HD camera, omnisonic speakers, directional microphones, and Microsoft’s G6 chip for haptic inking. With Ink Focus in Microsoft OneNote or the new GoodNotes app for Windows 11, digital ink feels like pen and paper.
Surface Pro 9 has two processor options: 12th Gen Intel Core with Thunderbolt 4 or Microsoft SQ3 with 5G connectivity. In either instance, customers will enjoy the same classic Surface Pro design, performance, and Secured-Core capabilities.
Intel Core processors are extremely powerful. Built on the Intel Evo platform, it’s suitable for real-world multitasking, full desktop productivity, and heavy tasks. Thunderbolt 4 supports fast data transfer, multiple 4K displays, and eGPUs.
The Microsoft Surface 3 has a 5G connection and a battery life of 19 hours. It unlocks new AI features made possible by an entirely new Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that transforms how users connect with others in their lives.
Surface Laptop 5
Surface Laptop 5’s easy opening and fast log-in with Windows Hello, touchscreen, precision touchpad, and excellent typing experience help you accomplish your finest work. The Surface Laptop 5 has all-day battery life and Thunderbolt 4. Because of Intel Evo, the Surface Laptop 5 is 50% faster than its predecessor.
The Surface Laptop 5’s 13.5″ or 15″ 3:2 PixelSense display with Dolby Vision IQ provides the best picture, rich colours, and crisp contrast in any lighting. Perfectly tuned speakers with Dolby Atmos 3D spatial processing immerse users in the material. The front-facing HD camera and studio microphones capture accurate images in any lighting condition.
