All About... the Surface Pro 7+

Published by at

Not strictly mobile, but there's an LTE version and this is certainly a device to embrace when physically 'mobile'! Newly launched is the upgradeable Microsoft Surface Pro 7+, with swappable SSD main drive, plus microSD (or SIM slot on the LTE version), plus spec improvements all round. Oddly, this is aimed at just businesses and education, so you may have to hunt around channels if you want one. Nice piece of kit though, and the one to get if you're buying a new Surface device?
