Surface Pro 8 was completely redesigned inside and out for the next level of performance and productivity. Its 13" display combines tactile feedback enabled through Windows 11 and the Surface Slim Pen 2 with a 120Hz refresh rate to give the best Surface inking experience to date. It now has two Thunderbolt 4 ports and the latest 11th Gen Intel Core processors. Commercial models now have the option of built-in LTE Advanced with Intel Core i7, i5 or i3 processors.

Beyond the updates to Surface Pro 8, we introduce updates to the rest of the Surface 2-in-1 lineup.

Surface Pro X is now available with a new WiFi-only option with Windows 11 on ARM, which now supports 64-bit emulation.
