Design

At first glance the surface pro 7 features a sleek chassis, robust, and distinctive design, which are some of the things we want in a premium device. In truth, very little has changed over the last few years of Surface 2-1, the design still look the same with just little changes in some notable areas.  It still measures 11.5 x 7.9 x 0.33 inches (292 x 201 x 8.5mm) and weighs 1.7 pounds (770g).

The tablet’s touchscreen still comes in at 12.3 inches on the diagonal with a 2,736 x 1,824 resolution (267 pixels per inch) and 3:2 aspect ratio. However, Microsoft has improved the device’s studio microphones for stronger accuracy when using Cortana with your voice.  It also comes with an upgrade in the Keyboard type cover.

The solid metal body which has become an almost iconic look for Microsoft’s surface helps portrait the premium look.

Out of the box the Surface Pro 7 is effectively a tablet since there is no keyboard of stylus present in  the box.  However, with extra cash you can get these accessories for effective work flow. The detachable Surface Type Cover look great, with soft finishes proving supremely comfortable to use, but the key travel feels spot on for a truly laptop-like typing experience. The Surface Pen and Surface Arc Mouse helps to easily personalize Surface Pro 7
