The Microsoft Surface Pro 9 is officially here. If you were expecting a major overhaul,

you’ll be disappointed to hear that this year’s model hasn’t received any significant design changes.

In fact, it looks virtually identical to its predecessor, the Microsoft Surface Pro 8.

However, Microsoft’s new 2-in-1 device features processors that provide it with more power

Yes, we said processors because the Surface Pro 9 offers two variants: one with an Intel CPU and another with a Microsoft SQ3 processor powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon.

The latter brings 5G connectivity, which is a first for the Surface line.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 is one of the best 2-in-1 laptops you can buy, but it certainly had room for improvement.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 9 will be available for purchase October 25th at a starting price of $999 for the Intel version

$1,299 for the model powered by Microsoft's Qualcomm-powered SQ3 SoC (System on Chip).
