In the box you’ll get the Surface Pro 7, power supply, safety and warranty documents for one year limited hardware warranty.
This warranty includes 90 days of free tech phone support, a free training for performance optimization and data transfer and a no questions asked 30-day return policy. We like the tenth generation quad core performance of Intel processors, very quick Instant On resume, how it stays cool at all times, flexibility to use in different modes, connectivity options including a USB-C port. On the other hand the Solid State Drives are not removable, the design is still the same as previous Surface Pro’s- not as modern as the Surface Pro X and there is no Thunderbolt 3. In practice you can expect 7 to 8 hours of battery life depending on what you do on the computer. Despite the small flaws and high price, the value for money is still good with the brand new Surface Pro 7.
