The Surface Pro 8’s display has an adaptive colour feature that adjusts the white balance to make viewing more comfortable, much like Apple’s MacBooks. The screen also has a dynamic refresh rate of up to 120Hz, which can help save battery life and makes scrolling smoother.


An optional $180 detachable keyboard has a spot to stow away and charge the new Slim Pen. Buyers can configure the new system with 11th-generation Intel Core chips and as much as 32GB of RAM. Microsoft claims Pro 8 gets as much as 16 hours of battery life, compared with up to 10.5 hours on the Pro 7.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 starts at CAD $1,399 and will be available in Canada on October 21, 2021 at 9:00 AM.
