On Monday (May 20), Microsoft introduced the latest offerings for consumers, the Surface Pro (11th edition) and Surface Laptop (7th edition), during its Surface and Windows AI event. These devices succeed the business-oriented Surface Pro 10 and Surface Laptop 6, unveiled in March of the same year. Notably, these consumer-centric devices mark Microsoft’s debut in the realm of Copilot+ PCs, integrating artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities. Unlike their business counterparts, these PCs are driven by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X series chipsets rather than the Intel Core Ultra chipsets.

The Microsoft Surface Pro, featuring a 16GB RAM and 256GB SSD internal storage configuration with an LCD display, kicks off at $999 (approximately Rs. 83,000).
