Surface Pro 7 unboxing and first impressions

Announced in early October this year, Microsoft's Surface Pro 7 doesn't change much from last year's model. It still looks pretty much the same, built of magnesium and having a display with larger-than-necessary bezels.

There are a few key differences though. For one thing, it finally adds a USB Type-C port, something previously only seen in the Surface Book 2 and the Surface Go. It's USB 3.1 Gen 1 instead of Thunderbolt 3, but that makes all three ports equal, between Surface Connect, the USB Type-A port, and the USB Type-C port.

It also now includes Intel's 10th-generation 'Ice Lake' processors. The model that Microsoft sent me includes a Core i5-1035G4, which is the sort of mid-tier for the included Iris Plus graphics (note that if you get a Surface Laptop 3 with a Core i5, it's the Core i5-1035G7, which has better graphics). Iris Plus will make a real difference on a machine like this, so I'm excited to try it out.
