So what do you do you make minor design tweaks and make it more powerful and just bring it up to date, but is it worth it? In 2022, though, lets find out the surface. Pro 8 is one of the best and fastest windows tablet or hybrid laptop on the market. Right now, microsoft has bumped its processor added the latest windows 11. The bezels are thinner, something ive been waiting for and the rounded corners make it look slicker and comfortable to hold when using it in tablet mode lets get the specs out the way, though just like before you can spec it up to suit what youd be using It for, however, the one here has the 11th gen intel core i7 processor, 16 gig of ram and 256 gigabytes of internal storage, design wise. It looks very similar, even with the subtle upgrades you get. A larger 13 inch pixel sense display with a resolution of 2880 by 1920 and 120 hertz refresh rate, which is not on by default. So the first thing you need to do is go into settings and changed it from the default 60 hertz and bump it up. The display also offers 103 of the srgb spectrum and has a peak brightness of 467 nits. All that, combined together gives you a really sharp display, thats, just a pure joy to use for watching movies, editing, content and general day to day use in the box. You get everything you need apart from a type cover or the latest surface pen, so the surface slim pen too, i would have loved to have a type cover bonded in here, but if you have the one for the pro x, you can still use it as Its compatible with the pro 8.

, perhaps microsoft, still wants the surface pro line to be a tablet first device, so they can still sell their laptop lineup around the surface. Pro 8. You have two thunderbolt 4 ports, yes, thunderbolt 4., something that was missing before and now opens up the prorate to a world of external accessories, especially an external gpu, for those that need that extra power for editing and creative work, theres also a 3.5 mil headphone jack And the surface connect port. As always, i love the surface connect charger which comes with a usb port for charging other devices, so you can free up your ports. Having said that, though, we do lose that usb 3.0 type, a port, that the surface pro 7. Had you also have two watt stereo speakers with dolby atmos speakers that are great, but if you really want to enjoy it, youre better off, just pairing up with your pair of headphones and you can have a better immersive experience, as this is still a surface pro Tablet, you still have that built in kickstand which allows you to use it in different form, factor or different angle to suit your needs, so you can lay it flat. You can have it on your lap, you can have it standing up, you can do whatever you want with the hinge. The hinge is so sturdy and can be adjusted to any angle without any concerns it just holds very still under that kickstand. You also gain access to the removable, solid state drive with 128 gigabytes or 256 gigabytes storage options elsewhere.

We have two cameras on this laptop. So on the front we have a five megapixel shooter that can do full hd videos so 1080p and also supports windows, hello. So you can easily log in just using your face and you also have a 10 megapixel camera on the back rear facing camera. So you can take photos record videos at 1080p and it also does 4k videos and in a world where were doing working from home. You know video calls zoom and all that kind of stuff and microsoft teams. We also have a dual far field studio microphones on there, so people can hear you clearly with no issues at all. For the most part, the surface pro 8 is a solid device when it comes to design it feels premium and does definitely correlates with the price tag, all well and good, with the design and how its fully versatile. But how about performance for performance? You can have a maximum configuration of three gigahertz intel: core i7 1185 g7 quad core processor, 12 megabytes intel, smart, cache up to 4.8 gigahertz with turbo boost, intel, iris, xc, graphics and up to 32 gigs of lp ddr4 x ram and a one terabyte ssd price Starts from 999 pounds for the i5 version, 8 gigabyte ram and 128 gigabytes ssd to the maxed out spec at 2459. Pounds before you begin to add accessories like type cover and the new slim pen too configurations aside the surface pro 8 in the real world, is more than capable.

I loaded some games on there and it loads and plays with no issues at all, including xbox game. Pass games then, i also use my usual setup with adobe lightroom and again it just bridges through that with ease, i shoot all my content, including this one in 4k, using my sony, a7s 3 in log format and loading it straight into adobe premiere. It also has no issues at all. In fact, the sporadic lag i get. I put down to adobe premiere itself as its not the most stable of applications. Windows 11 is also a joy to use with some new user friendly updates. That makes it a little easier to use. For example, you can have multiple desktops open. So if you want to have a work space you can have in one desk. If you want your medium one, you can have it in another one. If you have a gaming one, you can have it in another desk and so on. You can also easily arrange windows in whichever way you wish to do so. The loaded, intel, xe, graphics, ive, used on various machines and this one doesnt disappoint either with the intel evo platform, microsoft is able to have a powerful laptop whilst keeping it slim slick and lightweight for battery life. Microsoft claims an all day battery life which theyre not lying, but they also claim you can have up to 16 hours of typical device usage. But during my test i was having around eight to nine hours on average of use.

If youre always on adobe premiere, then you will see the battery drain faster or gaming, but youd normally do those things whilst plugged in most of the time anyway, where a force short is cooling under every load, editing, 4k videos and switching between that and maybe browsing Web and sending large files will soon see the surface pro gets slightly warmer, but not that hot that becomes worrying. In conclusion, if you want a pure windows, 11 experience and the ultimate two in one laptop that is capable for creatives and even everyday user, then this is definitely one to consider. The display is excellent. Speakers sounds great. You can edit videos photos with no issues, and if you get the slim pen too, you can even design some graphics on the move. The addition of thunderbolt 4 ports is also very much welcomed, as it opens the service pro up to more accessories, where relax is that temperature on the every load battery life and also the price tag for the price point, you probably want to check out other laptops Out there as well thats, probably a little bit more capable than this one for maybe less of the price, but this is still great and he offers excellent specs, so thats it for the microsoft surface pro 8 guys.
