Microsoft comes with Surface Pro for business – News

Microsoft has announced a business version of its Surface Pro 7, the company’s two-in-one computer.

The new device will be named Surface Pro 7+, and is an update of the existing devices. For example, the plus version has a larger battery and more storage space in the form of an SSD component that you can remove. LTE support is also provided for the first time.

With the new device, Microsoft hopes to tap into the ‘working remotely’ trend. The company is specifically targeting schools and larger companies that now need to provide a range of employees and students with the necessary connectivity at home.

The Surface Pro series consists of hybrid devices and has been around for a while and has hardly changed in terms of appearance over the years. The tablets are equipped with a stand, and you can turn them into a laptop with the addition of a keyboard and optional mouse.

LTE and removable SSD

New in the 7+ is support for LTE Advanced network connection, so you don’t just have to rely on WiFi. The CPU also got an update. The device runs on eleventh generation Intel Core chips, and offers 32GB RAM and 1TB storage space. What is striking about the latter is that the device comes with a removable SSD. Microsoft calls that a security feature, but it seems especially useful for the IT department to easily recover company data if the device goes down.

Finally, the battery has also been improved, according to Microsoft. In what way, we don’t know, because specifications are not available at the moment. Surface Pro 7+ with Wi-Fi configuration is available in Belgium from €1,029. For the Surface Pro 7+ with LTE Advanced configuration you pay 1,329 euros.
