Microsoft announces Surface Pro 7 with a USB Type-C port

Microsoft is holding its special event today, and among the announcements is the already-expected Surface Pro 7. It looks a lot like previous Surface Pro models, and overall, stays in line with what we've seen from this lineup in the past.

The Surface Pro 7 is powered by 10th-generation Intel Core, specifically the 10nm Ice Lake processors. It has up to 1TB of storage and 16GB RAM. That display is also the same resolution and aspect ratio as before, so you're getting 2736x1824 pixels in the 3:2 aspect ratio, with 267 PPI. In terms of design, as we mentioned above, it's a lot like previous Surface Pro models, with the same thick bezels around the display and flat lines around the edges.

For ports and connectivity, we're once again looking at something similar to what we've seen before. The only major change is that the DisplayPort connector is been replaced by a USB Type-C port which can also carry video. Otherwise, there's still the Surface Connect port, a USB Type-A port, and a slot for a microSD card. Being that it's powered by Intel's 10th-generation processors, it also supports Wi-Fi 6.

The Surface Pro 7 will be available on October 22, with pre-orders starting today. It starts at $749.
