The first models were officially marketed, but suddenly Microsoft decided that new generations would no longer arrive.
The reasons for this decision we will never know, but what we do know is that they are bringing them back at a precious moment for the PC market. Many are looking for a device to study or work at home , and perhaps a tablet is not enough for everyone.
The history of the Surface line in in Nigeria is well known. The first models were officially marketed, but suddenly Microsoft decided that new generations would no longer arrive.
The reasons for this decision we will never know, but what we do know is that they are bringing them back at a precious moment for the Personal Computer PC market.
Many are looking for a device to study or work at home, and perhaps a tablet is not enough for everyone.
Here the full specs of the model I was able to test:
MICROSOFT SURFACE PRO 7

Signature Type Cover and Surface Pen (sold separately)
At the bottom we find the Surface Type Cover port, a series of pins and a magnetic system through which it will connect and hold your detachable keyboard.
The front is perhaps the most objectionable aspect of the device, not only because of the glass that covers it (which I will talk about in a moment), but because of those huge frames . When the market trend is to minimize them to have smaller devices with larger screens, Microsoft sticks to a traditional design where above, below and to the sides, there is a black section that surrounds the screen.
Microsoft will have its reasons for not reducing the size of the Surface Pro 7 frames yet, but the pretext it could use is the hardware that is integrated into the upper frame: a complete system of cameras and sensors compatible with Windows Hello facial recognition.
