Microsoft has announced the Surface Pro family of notebooks with the same Windows 10 Pro refresh as the Surface Laptop and Surface Pro 2, but it’s the Surface 4 that’s going to be the next flagship laptop.
The company has unveiled a new 12.5-inch model that comes with a 1.6GHz Intel Core i7-5820HK processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD.
The Surface Pro Pro 4 is going to sell for $2.99 more than the Surface 3 with its same specs and an upgraded Intel Core M3-1215U processor.
The specs include a 1TB SSD, 16MP camera, a 15.6-inch display, and the same 256GB SSD as the 3-in-1.
The new Surface Pro is going for $1,299, and we’ll be able to get a hands-on with the device for ourselves in just a few days.
In addition to the refresh, Microsoft also updated the Surface Book, which will be released in November.
That’s the same year as the current Surface Book is expected to launch.
The latest version of the Surface book will have the same keyboard as the new Surface 4, a USB Type-C port, a new touchpad, and an Intel Core m3 processor, with a 256GB RAM upgrade.
The updated version will be available for pre-order starting in January.
There’s also an updated Surface Book Pro with a 13.3-inch screen, a 4K touchscreen, and 128GB RAM.
This is the only new Surface Book in the lineup, and it comes with the latest Intel CoreM3-8100U processor and a 1 TB PCIe SSD.
It’s also the only Surface Book that supports Windows 10 Home, which Microsoft calls the “next-generation” Windows 10 operating system.
We’re still waiting for Windows 10 for the first time, so we’re hoping Microsoft will let us know when we get to the new operating system when we’re able to buy a new Surfacebook.
