Microsoft has launched two new AI-enabled Surface devices, the Surface Pro 10 and Surface Laptop 6, but is keeping them only for business customers for now. This means that you won’t be able to buy one directly from Microsoft without corporate account access.

Internally, the new surface devices have received an upgrade, with up to Intel Core Ultra 7 processors, up to Intel Arc Graphics, up to 64GB of DDR5 RAM, and up to 1TB of storage. In terms of performance, Microsoft claims that the Surface Laptop 6 is twice as fast as the Laptop 5, and the Surface Pro 10 is up to 53% faster than the Pro 9.

In terms of screen sizes, the Surface Laptop 6 goes up to a 15-inch PixelSense touchscreen display that comes with anti-reflective and adaptive colour technology that helps users to see content on the screen in almost any lighting conditions with reduced reflections by up to 50%.

Microsoft says that the Surface Pro 10 is the first Windows PC with a 114° field of view and supports a 1440p Quad HD webcam that can be used for Windows Hello face authentication. Additionally, the display on the Surface Pro 10 is 33% brighter and comes with a higher contrast ratio than the Pro 9.

Microsoft also joins the ranks of notebook manufacturers who have released new devices with a Copilot button to call up Microsoft’s generative AI assistant. Both the Surface Pro 10 and Surface Laptop 6 feature it. Microsoft says that when paired with the new Surface Pro Keyboard, the new devices offer the best AI experiences available at the push of a button. Microsoft added that if Copilot for Windows is not enabled, pressing the Copilot key will launch Windows Search
