Pre-orders for the most versatile laptop on the planet start today at authorized retailers, commercial resellers and on Microsoft Store
Microsoft, today, announced that the new Surface Pro and Surface Pro Signature Type Cover are now available for pre-orders in Thailand from the Microsoft Store at www.microsoft.com/th-th/store, local authorized retailers including IT City, Banana IT, Power Buy and Lazada, and commercial reseller Add In Business. Starting from 30,900 THB, the new Surface Pro will officially launch in market on 15 August 2017
Unveiled earlier in May, the new Surface Pro has been redesigned from the inside out to give people more performance with improved battery life. Everything has been streamlined and refined — from softer, rounded edges to cameras built to fade into the bezel. At just 8.5mm thin and starting at 767 grams,1 the new Surface Pro packs the power of a 7th generation Intel® Core™ processor into a new fanless,2 whisper-quiet design.
The Surface Pro delivers the most performance and battery life in a laptop that is this thin, light and quiet. It features up to 13.5 hours of battery life,3 making it more than 2.5 times faster than Surface Pro 3, and providing unmatched versatility and mobility in a lighter, more refined design.
“With Surface Pro, we created a new category and challenged the status quo of the laptop,” said Tatiana Marushevskaya, Marketing & Operations Director, Microsoft Thailand “With every release since we have continued to push boundaries — redefining the ultimate laptop with Surface Book and making the classic laptop feel fresh again with Surface Laptop. With the introduction of the new Surface Pro we are once again advancing the category by delivering the versatility of a powerhouse laptop and a mobile creative studio in one thin, lightweight device.”
The Surface Pro is not only a powerhouse laptop, but also a mobile creative studio with a high-resolution 12.3” PixelSense™ touch display that supports the new Surface Pen,4 the fastest pen ever, both on- and off-screen. The Surface Pro takes the immersive experience of creating on Surface Studio and brings it to life in a highly portable form factor. With a new hinge that adjusts to 165 degrees, people can now put Surface Pro into Studio Mode, creating the optimal position to write or sketch. Inking in applications across Windows 10 and Microsoft Office 365, including the new Microsoft Whiteboard app, will unlock ways for people to use digital ink to be more creative, collaborative and productive.
The new Surface Pro Signature Type Cover delivers a high-quality scissor mechanism and 1.3 mm of key travel for faster and more accurate typing. A full-size glass trackpad with five-finger multi-touch capabilities allows for ultimate precision, and the entire keyboard is wrapped in soft yet durable Alcantara® material, creating a comfortable palm rest and beautiful aesthetic. The Signature Type Cover will be available in Platinum and Black to match your personal style.
