One of the core highlights of Surface Pro 7 is the USB-C port that opens up charging, external displays, and even more bandwidth. The Surface Pro 7 is also more affordable thanks to the base model packing an Intel Core i3 at $749 compared to the Surface Pro 6’s base model at $899.
This year, Microsoft focused more on the Surface Pro 7’s Pen aside from its specs. About two-thirds of the Surface Pro 7’s keynote highlighted the Surface Pen’s integration with Windows apps such as Edge, Word, and Excel. The Surface Pen lets you take notes and snippets when using edge and can easily be exported to Microsoft Word. Using Word, the pen lets you add drawn comments and provides in-line editing. As for Excel, the Pen can now be used to edit letters or words in a cell just without having to select the cell first to enter editing.

The full spec and price list of the Surface Pro 7 haven’t been unveiled yet. We only know that it’ll come in the variants listed above.

The base model has an i3 processor, 4GB Ram and 128GB SSD starts at $749 and will be available on October 22, 2019. Expect more details once Microsoft launches the Surface Pro 7’s product page.
