Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 will launch in South Africa on July 29. Announced earlier this year, the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 are among Microsoft’s latest additions to the Surface lineup. The Surface Pro 7 starts at R17,999 and the Surface Laptop 3 starts at R22,999.
Surface Pro 7 is the latest 2-in-1 from Microsoft. Its external design is similar to the Surface Pro 6, but it has a USB-C port rather than a Mini DisplayPort. The larger differences are on the insides. The Surface Pro 7 features Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, and has Intel wireless technology inside. It earned a rare five out of five in our executive editor Daniel Rubino’s review.
The Surface Laptop 3 brings more modern internals to a traditional clamshell laptop. It’s available in either 13-inch or 15-inch variants and features either AMD or Intel processors depending on the model you choose. The Surface Laptop 3 features 10th Gen Intel CPUs and has a more modern USB-C port on its side.
The latest Surface devices might also launch in Mexico soon. Microsoft sent out a save the date invite to people with what appears to be a Surface Pro 7.
