What's the best Surface Pro

The best Windows tablets (2-in-1 tablets)

The appearance of the Surface Pro 7 [here in the test] has not changed much. The tablet from Microsoft is still very valuable and the device sits comfortably in the hand. The manufacturer has given the Surface Pro 7 a CPU and GPU upgrade. Due to the passive cooling, the SoC throttles in the long-term test, but even larger devices cannot deliver better values ​​here.

In terms of battery life, the Surface Pro 7 is a bit better than its predecessor and lasted almost ten hours in the test. That is enough for a working day and there is currently no competition in this performance class.

Microsoft remains true to its line and is also presenting the 2019 Surface in the familiar design. The look, feel and design are convincing and the Surface Pro 7 offers a very good performance. A USB Type-C port including Thunderbolt 3 would be future-proof. We cannot understand why users will not be granted this luxury in 2019 either.

For the top equipment with i7 CPU and 1 TB SSD, Microsoft charges a high price of more than 2,000 euros. But the HP Elite x2 fits into this price range, so Microsoft does not act outrageously here.

The Surface Pro 7 combines a lot of positive features and made a very good impression in the test. On the positive side, the Surface Pen is now part of the scope of delivery. However, the type cover must be purchased separately, which is an additional burden on the wallet when purchasing a new one. We also miss a Type-C connection. This should not be missing for a device in this price range.

In the meantime we were able to test the Surface Pro 7 with the Intel Core i7-1065G7 [here in the test]. In the internal duel, however, the faster device could not prevail.
