 Bangkok – August 29, 2017 Microsoft Thailand today announced that the new Surface Pro is now ready and available for home and business users across Thailand. The latest generation of the iconic product line, the most versatile laptop on the planet has been redesigned from the inside out to deliver better performance and battery life than ever. Together with Microsoft 365, a complete, intelligent, and secure solution that securely empowers everyone to be creative and work together, the new Surface Pro promises to take business productivity to the next level.

“With Surface Pro, we created a new category and challenged the status quo of the laptop,” said Tatiana Marushevskaya, Marketing & Operations Director, Microsoft Thailand “With every release since we have continued to push boundaries of existing categories — bringing more power, more pixels and more versatility to help people work how they want, where they want. The new Surface Pro’s perfect balance of versatility and performance is testament to our commitment to make technology that truly conforms to the needs and preferences of customers.”

The most versatile laptop

The new Surface Pro has been redesigned from the inside out to give people more performance and 50 percent more battery life than the Surface Pro 4. Everything has been streamlined and refined — from softer, rounded edges to cameras built to fade into the bezel. At just 8.5mm thin and starting at 0.766 kg1 the new Surface Pro is lighter than the bag it will be carried in, and packs the power of a 7th generation Intel® Core™ processor into a new fanless,2 whisper-quiet design.

A mobile creative studio

The Surface Pro takes the immersive experience of creating on Surface Studio and brings it to life in a highly portable form factor. With a new hinge that adjusts to 165 degrees, people can now put Surface Pro into Studio Mode, creating the optimal position to write or sketch. The high-resolution 12.3” PixelSense™ Display is engineered to work with the new Surface Pen, the fastest digital pen ever, to deliver an amazing inking experience.

When used with the new Surface Pro, the new Surface Pen is twice as responsive as the previous version with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity for increased accuracy and responsiveness. New tilt functionality detects the angle of the Surface Pen to enable more natural shading. Inking in applications across Windows 10 and Microsoft Office 365, including the new Microsoft Whiteboard app, will unlock ways for people to use digital ink to be more creative, collaborative and productive.

Full keyboard experience

The new Surface Pro Signature Type Cover delivers a high-quality scissor mechanism and 1.3 mm of key travel for faster and more accurate typing. A full-size glass trackpad with five-finger multi-touch capabilities allows for ultimate precision, and the entire keyboard is wrapped in soft yet durable Alcantara® material, creating a comfortable palm rest and beautiful aesthetic.

Snap into action

Designed without the bulk of traditional mice, Surface Arc Mouse is the ideal, ultra-portable companion for the new Surface Pro. This slim, light, and travel-ready Bluetooth mouse is designed to conform to your hand. Simply snap the mouse into the curved position to power up, then snap again to flatten and power down.

Achieve more together with Surface Pro and Microsoft 365

A complete, intelligent, and secure solution for businesses, Microsoft 365 is ready to help organizations foster a new culture of work that empowers everyone to be creative and work together, securely. It brings together the best of Microsoft with Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security, delivering an integrated solution that drives digital transformation by putting people at the center.

The workplace is transforming—from changing employee expectations, to more diverse and globally distributed teams, to an increasingly complex threat landscape. From these trends, we are seeing a new culture of work emerging. Our customers are telling us they are looking to empower their people with innovative technology to embrace this modern culture of work.

“Microsoft 365 can help companies offer their employees greater flexibility work where and how they want and collaborate in new ways — all while protecting company data,” added Vissut Medhisuvakul, Office BG Lead, Microsoft Thailand. “With Microsoft 365, traditional and modern IT infrastructure can coexist as your company makes its transition to the cloud at your own pace, and the best way to experience this journey is with a Microsoft 365-powered device like the new Surface Pro, which delivers intelligent built-in security, easy deployment and management, and proactive insights for addressing issues before they happen.”

To address commercial needs from the largest enterprise to the smallest business, Microsoft 365 is available in two major editions: Microsoft 365 Enterprise for large organizations and Microsoft 365 Business for small- to medium-sized businesses with up to 300 users.
