Microsoft’s new Surface Pro 8 tablet can actually go toe-to-toe with most ultraportables. It features a 13-inch PixelSense screen, a significant upgrade from the previous 12.3-inch display. Even better, it’s one of the first non-gaming notebooks we’ve seen that supports a 120Hz refresh rate, which makes scrolling through web pages and jotting down notes a lot smoother. And of course, it’s built with Windows 11 in mind.
Together with some of Intel’s latest 11th-gen processors, as well as long-awaited support for Thunderbolt 4, the Surface Pro 8 could tempt over potential buyers who were turned off by the limitations of previous models. As much as I’ve liked earlier Surface Pros, the last model made it clear that Microsoft seriously needed to change things up.
