One of the newest "AI laptops" to enter the market is the Microsoft Surface Pro 10, which looks to be the most potent Surface Pro device to yet. This device offers us a sneak peek at the consumer model that will be released later this year, although Microsoft just revealed the business model today (along with the Surface Laptop 6).

The Intel Core Ultra CPU that powers the Surface Pro 10 ($1,199) is its most noteworthy feature. The Neural Processing Unit (NPU) in "Meteor Lake" processors makes AI-driven operations easier, which is why Microsoft is referring to its new Surface tablets as "AI PCs." In order to make Microsoft's AI chatbot easier to use, a Windows Copilot key has been added to the keyboard of one Surface Pro 10 model.

An additional addition is a 1440p ultrawide camera that is "AI-enhanced" (up from 1080p) and compatible with Windows Studio Effects. These effects include blurring of the backdrop, eye contact, and automated framing. Microsoft says that the camera's 114-degree field of vision is the broadest ever included in a Windows PC. A 10.5MP UHD rear-facing camera is also included.

The Surface Pro 10 shares the same design as its predecessor. As previously, the gadget weighs 1.94 pounds and has dimensions of 1.3 x 8.2 x 0.37 inches. Its anodized aluminum body incorporates a magnetic keyboard connection and a kickstand on the rear. There are two Surface Connect connectors, a Surface Keyboard port, and two Thunderbolt 4/USB4 interfaces.

Platinum and Black are the two color options available for this company type. Expect Platinum, Graphite, Sapphire, and Forest colors if the consumer version you'll see in shops matches the Surface Pro 9; the last three will be available only on Wi-Fi versions (if there's a 5G version like previously).

The Surface Pro 10 has a 13.2-inch touch screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, and a resolution of 2,880 x 1,920 pixels. Since these specifications are the same as those of the previous generation, you can expect a functional display that is suitable for both work and viewing films. Based on these specifications, brightness, color saturation, and color accuracy should also be comparable to the Surface Pro 9.

According to Microsoft, the Surface Pro 10 has a 19-hour battery life rating. If this is accurate, it may last just as long as some of the greatest MacBooks. To find out if Microsoft is telling the truth about the Surface Pro 10's battery life, we'll need to bring it into our testing lab.


It appears that the Microsoft Surface Pro 10 is a minor upgrade. If AI functions ever become more effective, an improved camera should make you seem better on calls, and the Meteor Lake processor may be helpful. Apart than that, it's pretty much the same gadget as before, which isn't too awful.

Similar to its predecessor, this gadget may find its way onto our list of the best Windows laptops. But after using the Microsoft Surface Pro 10 firsthand, we'll see if that's the case.
