Microsoft Surface Pro

At its Surface and Windows AI event on Monday, 20 May, Microsoft revealed the new Surface Pro (11th edition) and Surface Laptop (7th edition) to the general public. These gadgets come after the tech giant's Surface Pro 10 and Surface Laptop 6, unveiled in March of this year and geared towards business. The Windows manufacturer incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities into the consumer-oriented machines, which also become the company's first Copilot+ PCs. Interestingly, the Snapdragon X series chipsets from Qualcomm power these PCs rather than the Intel Core Ultra chipsets used in the Surface devices targeted for corporate users.
