Build

The Microsoft Surface Pro 9 provides you with a high-quality metal design. The casing is made up of aluminum. Now the power button is up top by the volume buttons instead of on the side. I think many of us appreciate it because this is something that you grab and you put in the bag holding on to the size. You’re always hitting the power button.

Display

One of the Main features is that it provides you with a pretty big display of 13 inches size. The display is an IPS panel with pixel-sense technology. We have a 13-inch IPS pixel sense display still a lovely display very high resolution of 2880 by 1920, so it’s a three-by-two aspect ratio of 67 PPI. The Display is very vivid and bright.

The display supports Pen and Touch but unfortunately, the pen is not included and the keyboard is also not included in the box. These are to be purchased separately.

Performance and CPU

The Microsoft surface pro 9 comes with an Intel 12th gen CPU. Talking about the Intel version right now for these things that’s pretty impressive the amount of horsepower that you get. I like the type covers I leave that up to you you can always use external Bluetooth keyboards and all that sort of thing.

I like it, it works pretty well it’s got a good tactile feel they’ve tuned it over the years so it doesn’t make as much as it yakety yakity yaketa sound when you’re typing on it. The trackpad is decent enough it’s about as big as they could make it on a type cover of this size and Microsoft Precision obviously.

The display quality is very good on this now. I’d like to see them too in a little bit better. You get two color profiles out of the box now srgb and Vivid. We tested it on the Vivid mode and the blues are a little too high in the color calibration, and the gamma is a little bit too low. But it’s close enough.

It’s a delightful product if you’re going to be doing photo editing. You could obviously do video editing on this. I personally would pick something like a mobile workstation with dedicated graphics for them

I think it’s often cheaper just to get yourself a gaming laptop or something if you need something more powerful for video editing 3D rendering and all those things. But it’s possible when you’re talking about the processor though the Intel 12 generation processor might not be the best in terms of power and heat consumption because both Intel and AMD right now just like Nvidia are getting performance ramped up by increasing the Watts and the heat.
