After using the new Surface Pen for the last week, I agree with Microsoft that this pen is the “fastest on the planet.” The new Surface Pen responsiveness and speed make it a dream to use. I use the Surface Pen to take notes when I am in meetings in OneNote, and use it when I color using my favorite Windows 10 coloring app, Zen: Coloring Book for Adults. I am by no means an artist, but when I use the new Surface Pen, I feel like one.
Why it matters to you: Microsoft is maintaining its pledge to keep updating its older products in the Surface Line, and this one adds new support for Type Covers. Microsoft’s latest firmware update for the Surface Pro 3 is focused entirely on bringing various systems in line with the Surface Pro Type Cover and Surface Pro Signature Type Covers. It doesn’t add anything revolutionary, but this update does improve compatibility and has no effect on battery life or security.
Of course, it’s perfectly possible that there’s no black Surface Book and that a video producer thought that a recolored Surface Book just looked cool without appreciating just how distinctive the Surface Book’s design is.
Sorry, Consumer Reports, but you don’t know the Surface like I do.

The Surface Plus Program gives you a way to get what you want.

The new Surface Pen has four times the sensitivity of its predecessors – 4096 points of pressure compared to 1024. Microsoft also reduced the amount of force required to activate the tip and increased the tilt angle to allow for a more natural experience when drawing and shading. One of the things Microsoft focused on with the new Surface Pen is latency. In order to accurately emulate a pen and paper, the Surface Pen has to “flow” as effortlessly as an old-fashioned pen. Microsoft claims, “The new Surfac

The technology giant is reportedly working on launching its latest Surface Book 2 device towards the end of this year.
If reports are believed to be true, then the upcoming device will most probably sport a 13.5-inch display with 3,840 x 2,160-pixel resolution and support for 4K-viewing as well. Microsoft is also apparently working on a technology that will enable its fans to experience different trends such as Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and others. The upcoming device won’t fall anywhere under the $1,000 price-tag for sure. The next big highlight in Microsoft’s upcoming Surface Book 2 is its motherboard. It appears like the device will be powered by the latest version of #Kaby Lake processor. Moreover, the Kaby Lake architecture will necessarily be based on quad-core processors as well.
