Microsoft has always been at the forefront of computer technology, especially in the corporate world. Every year they release newer, better technology and cleaner designed appearances.
In more recent years the collection of Surface computers and tablets has been introduced to the tech world. Each model has different benefits that may be more compatible with certain roles. For this reason, we’ve gathered the best Microsoft computers and tablets that suit the world of business.
All things new and powerful, the Surface Laptop 3 has been decked out with style and speed. To start things off, this laptop is a lightweight and has the second longest-lasting battery out of all the Surfaces, delivering 11.5 hours. If you know you’ll be travelling or using it in coffee shops then this may be the perfect laptop for you because it fails to compromise on any of its specs to get that longer-lasting battery. It also comes with a fast-charging function that pours power back into your device for when you need to be on the move.
The standout design is minimalistic but still has some customisable features. With two sizes to choose from, 13.5-inch and 15-inch, and rich tone-on-tone colours such as Platinum, Cobalt Blue, Matte Black and new Sandstone, also choose between two keyboard finishes, warm Alcantara material or cool new metal.
The latest 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor, up to 32GB RAM and 1TB of storage will provide you with everything you need to run the programmes your business depends on.
Weighing just 1.29kg for a well-rounded business computer, this computer won’t weigh down your pockets much but will be a great investment in the years to come.
Surface Pro 7 is a powerful, yet versatile computer, with the option to switch from tablet to laptop to data studio, allowing the computer to be used in multiple ways. The appearance showcases a formal and professional look ideal for the office setting. Ultralight and now with USB-C, the new Surface Pro 7 gives you the opportunity to work efficiently and effectively.
The Surface Pro 7 can remain active with a battery life of up to 10.5 hours, plus features fast charging and instant on. It also features the latest 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and up to 16GB RAM and 1TB storage which is impressive.
To switch between the modes is an easy process: attach the keyboard and drop the kickstand at the back to use the device as a laptop – this is ideal if you’re writing emails, using it at a desk or want the full laptop work experience. Close the kickstand on the back of the laptop and remove the Surface Pro type cover to use it as a business tablet. Alternatively, if you want to get creative you can drop the kickstand to a lower level and use the 15-degree angle as leverage to write or draw, ideal for taking notes or sketching with the Surface pen.
Similar to Surface Pro 7, the Pro X is also versatile and can be used in more ways than just a laptop. It’s known for being the slimmest Surface 2-in-1 on the market at just 7.3 mm. The Pro X also features a ridiculously rapid LTE and the new pen which gets docked and charged in the cover. The screen measures at 13 inches and features touchscreen technology.
Perhaps one of the most impressive features across all the Surfaces is the battery life. The Pro X goes above and beyond with 13 hours of battery life.
If you need a computer for your home office or for work that is a powerful machine which you can’t quite get in a laptop, then look to the Surface Studio 2. Finely put together with a terabyte hard drive, 16GB Ram and an Intel Core i7, your computer will be chugging away with power, handling everything that you throw at it.
This desktop works extremely well for more creative businesses, whether that’s using Photoshop or other Adobe software on a daily basis or other power-hungry systems. If you do plan on using it creatively then the thing you look for is a great screen, which is exactly what the Surface Studio 2 has. It features the golden ratio of 3:2 which gives you the perfect width to height visibility, especially when on a 28” PixelSense™ Display.
