Our recommend configuration packs a 13-inch (2880 x 1920) touch screen, 12th Gen Intel Evo Core i5-1235U 10-core CPU, 16GB of RAM, Iris Xe Graphics and 256GB SSD.

We didn’t get our hands on the Surface Pro 9 for testing, however, we took its predecessor for a spin. In our Surface Pro 8 review, we found its gorgeous display, strong performance impressive and excellent webcam. We gave the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 a rating of 4 of 5 stars and our coveted Editor’s Choice award.
In one test, we gauged its performance by opening the usual 24 Chrome browser tabs. The Surface Pro 8’s 11th Gen Intel CPU didn’t even flinch with four tabs simultaneously streaming two 1080p YouTube videos and Twitch streams apiece. We expect no less from the Surface Pro 9, given its upgraded 12th Gen Intel CPU.
If you’re gift shopping or looking for a versatile 2-in-1 device for yourself, the Surface Pro 9 is a solid buy. Especially at $300 off!
