Microsoft Surface Pro, Surface Laptop Introduced As Company’s First Copilot+ PCs: Price, Features

Microsoft unveiled the new Surface Pro (11th edition) and Surface Laptop (7th edition) for consumers on Monday (May 20) at its Surface and Windows AI event. These devices follow after the tech giant’s business-focused Surface Pro 10 and Surface Laptop 6 which were introduced in March this year. The consumer-focused devices also become the company’s first Copilot+ PCs, as the Windows maker integrates artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities in them. Notably, these PCs are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X series chipsets instead of Intel Core Ultra chipsets seen in the business-focused Surface devices.

Microsoft Surface Pro and Surface Laptop price, availability

The Microsoft Surface Pro starts at $999 (roughly Rs. 83,000) for the 16GB RAM and 256GB SSD inbuilt storage variant with an LCD display. This variant is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon X Plus chipset. Similarly, the Microsoft Surface Laptop also starts at $999 (Roughly Rs. 83,000) for the 13.8-inch display variant along with Snapdragon X Plus chipset paired with 16GB RAM and 256GB SSD inbuilt storage. Both devices will be available in Black, Dune, Platinum, and Sapphire.

Both the Surface devices will go on sale starting June 18. Interested people can pre-order on the Microsoft website now.

The Microsoft Surface Pro (11th edition) is a 2-in-1 PC that features a 13-inch display with options in both LCD and OLED screens with a 120Hz refresh rate.
