Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8 Professional 2-in-1 tablet isn’t a regular device for everyone.

At a hefty price of RM9,399, it is one of the most expensive laptop tablets on the market, but at this price, its ‘specialised’ users are sure to get the many features they need to perform their tasks.

It features a quad-core 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, storage of 256GB, a bright 13-inch PixelSense Flow Display, and Intel Iris Xe Graphics that all embedded into the Intel Evo platform.

At 891 grams, it’s lightweight, making the word “portable” more appropriate for a tablet.

While Microsoft is known for its lighter colour palette, the tablet’s aluminium casing pairs perfectly with the Alcantara-covered Surface Pro Signature keyboard and Surface Slim Pen 2, making the set look like a solid business laptop workstation. The keyboard is responsive and attaches magnetically to the tablet.

The edges of the screen are rounded and the bezels are smaller, providing users with a larger display. You’ll also see two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports and a Surface Connect port on the right, while the left has a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The speaker sits at the top of the display, and there’s a 5MP front-facing camera and the 10MP rear camera which you won’t be disappointed with both cameras.

The Text 13-inch PixelSense Flow Display has an 1880 x 1920 resolution with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz (60Hz by default) at the same time the view has a comforting 3:2 aspect ratio for a seamless work experience.

With a display with 267 ppi and 467 nits of brightness, content creators will get more detailed images, accurate colours, smoother lines and better all-around quality.

It also uses Dolby Vision and Adaptive Colour High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology.

With a quad-core 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1185G7 processor and onboard Iris Xe integrated graphics, the tablet or laptop can switch between work and leisure applications very smoothly.

The battery in Surface Pro 8 lasts a long time where Microsoft claims the device can run for up to 16 hours with light usage on a single charge.
