I bought a new Surface with the Surface Plus program | On MSFT

Surface Plus

I purchased the Surface Type Cover and pre-ordered the Surface Pen separately, so those items are not included in my monthly payments. I am a Surface Pro fan and I look forward to being able to get the next new Surface Pro device when it comes out. I may choose to get the next iteration of the Surface Book or maybe the next Surface Laptop, but the point is, I have options with the Surface Plus Program. The Surface Plus Program gives you a way to get what you want.

Check out the official website for more information about the Surface Plus program.

Why The New Surface Pen Finally Converted Me To Digital Ink

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.

2017 Microsoft Surface Pro Review  

Microsoft Surface Pro 2017

The original Surface Pro marked Microsoft’s entry into the tablet market and the 2-in-1 has been refined and improved over the years. We were impressed with the Surface Pro 4 and now, 18 months later, we’re just as bowled over by the Surface Pro.

This isn’t to suggest the new Surface Pro is in any way sub-par. Far from it: it takes a great product and makes it excellent.
