Introducing the New Microsoft Surface Pro; Up to 13.5 Hours Battery Life
At a launch event in Kuala Lumpur, Microsoft Malaysia has unveiled the brand new Microsoft Surface Pro. Check out what’s new with this versatile machine.
Introducing the New Microsoft Surface Pro
Microsoft has reinvented the modern workplace concept with the launch of Microsoft’s brand-new Surface Pro. Tagged as Microsoft’s “most versatile laptop” the device which is the latest generation of its iconic Surface product line, has been redesigned from the inside out to deliver better performance and battery life than ever.
The Surface Pro, together with Microsoft 365, is a complete, intelligent, and collaborative modern workplace solution that enables everyone to be creative and work together, taking productivity to the next level.
A Versatile Machine
The new Surface Pro has been redesigned from the inside out to give people more performance and fifty percent more battery life than the Surface Pro 4. 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 0.766 kg the new Surface Pro is lighter than the bag it will be carried in, and packs the power of a 7th-gen Intel Core processor into a new fanless, 2 whisper-quiet design.
The Surface Pro brings creativity to live in a highly portable form factor. The high-resolution 12.3” PixelSense Display is engineered to work with the new Surface Pen, the fastest digital pen ever, to deliver an amazing inking experience 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.
Make the world your workplace
With technology evolving at a rapid pace, people are no longer bounded by a set space or an office. Mobility is key. The three critical aspects in the new world of work are people, place and technology. Employees in the new world of work have the capabilities to work flexibly and productively in the digital modern work place, they are empowered with technology and their offices support a collaborative, dynamic workplace design.
The new Surface Pro is the ultimate work companion to allow the world to work in new ways within the modern workplace. With its long-lasting battery life, Microsoft’s new Surface Pro takes on a whole new meaning of a true companion.
Our recent Workplace 2020 study revealed that mobile professionals are seeking the ability to access information and data on mobile devices, cloud-based productivity tools and realtime collaboration capabilities for better collaboration and productivity.
It has been said that Malaysian employees feel the most important way to improve collaboration and increase their level of productivity is through better PCs (55%) and better mobile devices (34%).
Michal Golebiewski, Chief Marketing & Operations Officer, Microsoft Malaysia, said:
At Microsoft, we believe nothing should stand in our customers ways to bring their ideas to life. We built the Surface Pro because we believe the right technology can help people push the limits of what’s possible.
Modeled after whether it be a student or an employee, the Surface Pro and Microsoft 365 present businesses with an opportunity to create a new culture of work that unlocks creativity and enhances teamwork while also delivering simple management and intelligent security. Together, it’s a solution that makes your modern workplace a reality.
Noticeably absent in the new Microsoft Surface Pro is Thunderbolt port. Microsoft Malaysia has gone on record saying that the reason behind the absence is due to the fact that Thunderbolt is still not widely adopted yet and they’re focused more on following the industry standard in order to maximize consumer satisfaction.
