The Surface Pro has the same ports as its predecessor: mini-DisplayPort, USB, and the Surface connector for power.
The Surface Dial is a very cool idea, and one that we are excited to see expanded upon in the future. Because, inevitably, you'll sneeze or cough or shout at the dog and then the whole thing will tilt forward and you'll get slapped with two pounds of tablet in the face.
Once you get past these flaws, the Surface Pro is a beautifully designed thing.
Covering nearly 95% of the sRGB colour spectrum, this display should be ideal for photo editing and the gorgeous 2736 x 1824 screen means that both pictures and video will look pin-sharp and packed with detail. I will say that the pen is better than ever and I do know many photographers who enjoy using the Surface Pro and pen for their retouching. I wouldn't jump on it, or sit on it, but it's robust. The older Dell XPS 15 was able to render the project out in around 3:30, The new Apple Macbook Pro 15 was able to export the project in 6:04, and the new Surface Pro could export this same project in 8:30. This means you get a much more pencil-like experience when doing things like shading.

Microsoft's Surface Laptop entertained its biggest launch in the world history yesterday.
The reviews of the Surface Laptop hit the interwebs a few days ago and while most reviews have been positive, some downright glowing, the majority of privileged testers only focused their attention to the hardware and battery life.
To that end, the hinge looks markedly different, clearly incorporating new parts to make this more dramatic angle possible, but operates in exactly the same way.
Remember that once you upgrade, you will not be allowed to go back. Can a very powerful Windows laptop be turned into a tablet? Although, it should be noted that the test unit was an Intel Core i7 model with 512GB of SSD storage and 16GB of RAM priced at $2,199, just one rung down from the range-topping Core i7 model with a full terabyte (TB) of storage with a $2,699 price tag. Microsoft has made a genuine all-day machine, here, which is great. Because virtually all of your printers, cameras, external hard drives, and podcasting mics still use it. Microsoft made a pragmatic decision: The Surface Laptop makes life easier and more dongle-free now, and potentially a little harder in a couple of years when you own more USB-C gear. It makes the laptop you might want four years from now. Yes, if you want this machine fully-loaded, you're going to pay £2,397, which is a lot of money. The pen experience is much more responsive and improved over past versions. The company did come up with the new iPad Pro with some functionalities of a 2-in-1 product, but it doesn't run desktop software like the Surface devices. It's not that I disliked Apple (not by a long shot), but I was excited to see Microsoft eyeing the arts so distinctly.
Is it, though? Surface Pro was never positioned as a laptop-first.
After lunch we met with my good friend, and incredible designer, Jessie Shroyer. And as you would expect, Windows 10 runs well with no hiccups to note at this time.
Apple is very proud of its iPad line-up, which is believed to be state-of-the-art and innovative, but Microsoft does not think it is unique. The tool makes it easier for existing desktop apps to move over to Microsoft's universal platform and many - including Evernote, PhotoScape, SQL Pro and more - have been using it to bring their apps into the store since late previous year.
