The Surface Pro 7 is one of the best hybrid devices currently on the market due to its premium design, comfortable keyboard, and bright display. It will complement your work-from-home routine nicely or assist with remote learning. Read more about it below.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7: Pricing and Configurations
Microsoft offers several configuration options of the Surface Pro 7, ranging in price from $750 to $2,300. For the processor, users can choose between 3 options: dual-core 10th gen Intel Core i3-1005G1, quad-core 10th gen Intel Core i5-1035G4, or quad-core 10th Gen Intel Core i7-1065G7. In terms of graphics, it could be either Intel UHD Graphics (for the i3 option) or Intel Iris Plus Graphics (for the i5 and i7 options).
The device comes with 4 storage options: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB. For the memory, users can pick between 4GB, 8GB, or 16GB LPDDR4x RAM. So, the most expensive model will come equipped with Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and 1TB storage. Keyboard and special stylus would have to be purchased separately.
Design and Key Features
Microsoft Surface Pro 7 retained the aesthetic design of its predecessors. The device comes in two stylish finishes: Platinum and Black, with a shiny Microsoft logo on the rear surface. The kickstand extends 165 degrees and users can prop the Surface Pro 7 into laptop or studio mode. The Type Cover keyboard can be seamlessly attached to the hybrid’s underside, and the optional Surface Pen can attach magnetically to the side. The Type Cover doubles as a protective soft fabric covering when closed up.
The Surface Pro 7 is equipped with enough ports and this generation finally received a USB-C port. Additionally, you will find one USB-A port, 3.5 mm headphone jack, Surface Connect port, MicroSDXC card reader, and Surface Type Cover port. The laptop/tablet features 12.3-inch, 2736 x 1824-resolution PixelSense touch screen that is highly responsive. The display automatically adjusts to lighting conditions.
The dual front-firing speakers on the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 deliver decent quality audio, however, consider investing into a good pair of headphones for a deeper sound.
For $99, you can get an optional Surface Pen. This tool is quite useful if you need to take hand-written notes, draw pictures, or perform detailed video or photo-editing. Surface Pro 7 also features a 5-megapixel front-facing webcam that delivers sharp, detailed images. The front-facing camera supports Windows Hello login using facial recognition for faster access to the device. Lastly, the convertible is also Wi-Fi 6 compatible.
