Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is a fifth-generation device, a formidable one that speaks of artificial intelligence's present and future. Also known as Surface Pro 2017, the device is a detachable hybrid that melds the qualities of a notebook and computer.
To capture its hybrid title, Microsoft equips the Surface Pro 5 with an integrated touchscreen keyboard, 7th generation Intel Core Processor options, and optional LTE connectivity. It also sports a kickstand that opens at 165 degrees, allowing the notebook to lay flatter – an ability Microsoft calls 'Studio Mode'.
If you are well informed about the Surface Series, you will know that Microsoft Surface devices always come in different memory configurations, and they are all worth buying.

Design Info: Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and 5 have a similar design; however, Surface pro 5 looks smoother. It has a redesigned hinge, which makes it more comfortable for you to draw on the display with the stylus, among other things. It has visible buttons for volume and power and a magnetic connector to attach the keyboard. Also, there are ports for headset jack, Windows Hello with face sign-in, and a front-facing camera.
The device has clean lines with rounded edges. It has a bright 12.3 inches screen display wide enough to show any media comfortably.
Unlike the Pro 4, the magnesium-aluminium alloy frame of the Pro 5 is now rounder at the edges. Microsoft improved on the thermal design, which, unlike before, is now fanless.
Still speaking about upgrades, Microsoft upgraded the Surface Pen to 4,096 levels, and this gives creators (users) more control and direction over the lines they draw in designs and illustrations. The lines now have varied width and intensity than before. Also, the pen has lower latency.

It has dual microphones, 1.6W stereo speakers with Dolby® Audio™ Premium. The connection of the device is brilliant, with 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. This connection has improved bandwidth, and it is more flexible for navigating through simultaneous connection support. It provides greater performance, covers more range, and the device is more reliable.
Capacity Info: Microsoft Surface Pro 5 comes with more than enough space as it has RAM options of 4, 8, 16 GB, and the SSD storage is available in 128, 256, 512 GB and 1 TB. However, the RAM options are not all available for all SSD options. As expected, the higher the storage capacity, the higher the RAM and pricing. For a truly seamless performance, opt for the 16GB and 1 TB variant.
Size and Weight Info: The device measures 292 mm × 201 mm × 8.5 mm and weighs 768 g. At this size, the Surface Pro 5 is very compact; however, bigger than the average tablet and weighs more than the regular tablets.
Display Info: It has a screen of 12.3 inches PixelSense™, and the display resolution is 267 PPI. The screen supports 10-point multi-touch, which allows for easy and fast navigation/touch on the screen. You can easily zoom, rotate, swipe, drag, double-tap and so on with up to ten fingers on the screen simultaneously.
The Surface pen comes with 4,096 pressure sensitivity and tilt sensing. These are very important features of the device, most especially for drawing styles.
Camera Info: This notebook has 5.0 megapixels front camera with 1080 pixels of Skype HD video. The rear-facing camera is 8.0 megapixels with 1080 pixels Full HD video. There is also a Windows Hello face authentication camera for eye/face recognition to authenticate and unlock your device.
Videography: As stated above, you can record 1080p videos with the front and back camera. The quality is good but nowhere near a mobile device or dedicated camera.
Water Resistance Info: Microsoft introduced a new texture called Alcantara. Microsoft Surface Pro 5 has a soft and durable Alcantara-covered keyboard that is waterproof. It is also resistant to stains. The main device isn't waterproof, but it is durable enough to survive an accidental drop in water.
Chip Info: The Surface Pro 5 sports a multicore processor, making it fast and easy to run multiple applications concurrently. The base frequency is 1.00 GHz, and Max Turbo frequency is 2.60 GHz, and Thermal Design Power is 4.5 watt.
Battery Info: This hybrid device uses an internal lithium-ion battery. Lithium-ion batteries have very high voltage and charge storage; they are more stable, and the self-discharge rate is very low. The battery life lasts up to 13.5 hours with Wi-Fi and 12.5 hours with a 4G connection. That means the Pro 5's battery has 50% more life than Microsoft Surface Pro 4. To preserve the battery, you are advised to run on the battery (not plugged in) at least once every thirty days.
