Our Verdict

Its Microsoft Surface Pro 8 is suitable for business purposes. It features a sleek aluminum chassis with top design and builds quality. It also has a light slim profile, making it extremely portable. Its type cover keyboard feels great to type on. It does not tire your fingers out over extended periods.

Additionally, it effortlessly manages medium-heavy multitasking, which helps you work efficiently and clearly. Its microphone and webcam are ideal when it comes to video chats.

Unfortunately, it has only two USB-C ports. So you’ll need adapters or a Surface Connect port to attach to a dock if you plan to use it with several peripherals.

The battery can’t last 8 hours of work, and you’ll need to remain connected.
