Man at His Best

Why The Microsoft Surface Pro Is Not A One-Hit Wonder

Exceeds expectations.

There are a lot of things that we like about the Surface Pro so we’ll break it down to the few that stand out. First, the design is slightly more refined, the edges are softer, with the cameras blending into the bezel, but it is what’s inside that counts—at 8.5MM thin, the device houses a seventh-generation Intel Core processor. We installed Cuphead into the Surface Pro and the chip didn’t cave under its processing load. 

Second, we’re impressed with the Surface Pen. It’s a great improvement from the last version, with no lag time and a sensitivity that allows for more refined writing/drawing. Angle the pen to shade like a pencil, which allows for dimensionality to the penis artwork that we’ve casually drawn. 

Third, the Alcantara fabric of the Type Covers feels great to use. It makes those clicky sounds that give the impression we’re working when all we are really doing is writing a limerick to accompany the penis drawing.

Microsoft’s Surface Pro retails from SGD1,188, and is available at the Microsoft Store and authorised retailers including Best Denki, Challenger and Courts.
