Microsoft has announced the general availability of the Surface Laptop across UAE. The perfect productivity companion for everyone, from students to boardroom executives, the Surface Laptop is the optimal blend of all the features that Microsoft customers have been asking – combining form and function, power and portability, security and performance.

Powered by Windows 10, the Surface Laptop weighs in at just 2.76lbs, measures 14.47mm at its thickest point and comes with a 7th-generation Intel Core processor and more battery power allowing 14.5 continuous hours of video playback. Memory options extend to 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD storage.

The UAE government has placed education at the heart of its national economic vision and the Surface Laptop is the ideal choice for the student, whether in school or in college. For the business user, eager to compete in the nation’s growing economic climate, the Surface Laptop can play a key role in the intelligent edge of a computing environment.

“We are excited to bring the Surface Laptop to UAE for customers who are seeking a differentiated experience to do more on their own terms” said Onur Altintas, Senior Product Marketing Manager – Surface, Microsoft Middle East & Africa “We have spent years perfecting our popular and award-winning Surface family, listening to customers and learning from them. We poured all that experience into the Surface Laptop, to deliver a meticulously crafted device – thinner, quieter, more powerful and more personal – bringing the best of Windows and Office together for users to unleash their creative potential and achieve more.”

With a 13.5-inch PixelSense Display and composed of edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass 3, Surface laptop has the market’s thinnest LCD touch screen display, with 3.4m pixels, each colour-calibrated to give a vibrant, immersive canvas. And the Alcantara-coated keyboard with soft palm rest gives a new level of typing comfort during the school or a work day. The device comes in an array of striking colours and finishes including Platinum, Graphite Gold, Cobalt Blue and Burgundy.

Microsoft also announced the availability of Surface Pro with LTE Advanced, the most connected device in its class, for consumers and businesses in UAE. The CAT-9 modem delivers one of the fastest LTE-enabled experiences on the market, and with 12.5 hours of battery life, users can remain productive all day, every day. Surface Pro with LTE Advanced supports 20 LTE bands and cellular connectivity means users no longer need to worry about the security of public Wi-Fi networks.
