Microsoft held a big Surface event in Shanghai this morning. While the event was basically impossible to watch in America, with a broken liveblog and zero English livestreams, savvy viewers (and those fluent in Chinese) might have caught the big news: There’s a new Surface Pro. It’s been more than sixteen months since…
Microsoft’s looking to shrug off some of this week’s bad Surface Pro PR by finally releasing its promised crazy-powerful Surface configs, including a $3,200 Surface Book with 1TB of storage, 16GB of RAM, an Intel Core i7, and a discreet GPU.
Think of all the hardware Microsoft makes that’s not a peripheral. What you’re thinking is probably getting some kind of update on Today. That includes the wonderful Surface Pro laptop/tablet, but also the Microsoft Band and two new Lumias (finally). And maybe even a surprise or two, just to keep us guessing.
The LaVie Z is the newest ultrabook from Lenovo. At just 2 lbs, it’s the lightest in its class. Does that make it the perfect adventure-travel companion? We’ve been carrying it everywhere to find out.
The new Lenovo Miix 700 is pretty much a straight-up clone of the Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3. Same size, same weight, same idea. I don’t care. The Surface was pretty great—minus a bunch of annoying flaws—and I can’t wait for someone to perfect it.
Tonight, when the New York Giants face off against the Buffalo Bills in the first NFL preseason game of the year, something will be different. The game itself will still be the 11-person smash-em-up affair that we all know and love, but the sidelines will be seeing a significant upgrade—the Sideline Viewing System,…
Microsoft's Surface Pro has sized up, embracing its laptop side in an attempt to unseat the MacBook Air as your computer of choice. The Surface Pro 3 won't succeed, but it's a damn good effort.
The Surface Pro has never been a bad idea. One device that's both your laptop and your tablet! Sounds great! The problem was that it was just never quite either; it was awkward on both counts. The new, bigger Surface Pro 3 though, might have actually found a way to walk the line.
A Microsoft update for Windows 8.1 mentions that it "adds support to the Surface Pro 3 camera." That's either a typo, or a big hint that a new tablet is on the way...
The original Surface Pro was many things, but chief among them was strange. Not only did it deftly—if not quite perfectly—straddle the line between tablet and laptop, but it also straddled the line between futurist ideal and problematic product. This time around the Surface Pro 2 is packing plenty of practical…
The first thing to notice about the actual Surface tablets is how similar they are both to each other and to last year's models. Aside from the Surface 2's eye-catching coat of white, the tablets both feel almost physically identical to their predecessors. That's a good thing; the well-angled bezels and overall…
About this time last year, Microsoft made some major promises about ushering in the future of computing. One year and two Surface tablets, later the future Microsoft's been dreaming of isn't quite here. Maybe the second time's the charm.
Microsoft just sent out invitations for an event in New York City on Monday September 23rd, two weeks from today. It will be showing off the new Surface. Which is to say, it's going to be showing us the future of Microsoft.
Photoshop users rejoice: Thanks to software developed by Wacom, Microsfot's Surface Pro now has the abilty to support a pressure-sensitive stylus.
Microsoft's Surface Pro may only have been released last week, but iFixit has already torn it apart. Perhaps unsurprisingly, you don't wanna think about repairing or upgrading this thing, period.
Today is the Surface Pro's big day in the sun. And if you want a good launch, you've got to make sure you've got the things you're selling and they're in places where people can buy them. So far, it looks like that's not the case when it comes to the Surface Pro.
