microsoft’s surface pro restyled as a laptop

M icrosoft’s Surface Pro line-up has remained largely unchanged for the past two generations. Now you can make that three: the new Surface Pro (2017) – no, not the Surface Pro 5 – features substantial internal improvements, but otherwise refuses to mess with a good thing. Ranging in price from just £799 to a whopping £2,699, the Surface Pro is slightly more expensive than its Surface Pro 4 predecessor, which has been discounted from £749 to £636 at fave.co/2rkruqb. The new Surface Pros are available to purchase from fave.co/2swwDMH now. Perhaps the biggest change is semantic: Microsoft has decided to call the Surface Pro a ‘laptop’ rather than a 2-in-1.

how to: get past smartscreen filter

W e’ve all been there. You read about a great little traditional desktop application or utility that you think will be a great help. once it’s downloaded Windows 10 blocks it thanks to Windows Defender SmartScreen, a feature that prevents unrecognized apps from running. It’s a helpful security feature that can sometimes be annoying. Here’s how to get past it. Are you sure you want to do this?

surface laptop is microsoft’s macbook air

Two things will immediately strike you about the new Surface Laptop: it’s amazingly light and sturdy, and it borrows a lot of its look and feel from the Surface Pro 4. Think of the Surface Laptop as Microsoft’s answer to the MacBook Air: pricey, thin and with battery life that goes on and on and on. It’s not a Chromebook competitor, but a far more premium experience. It does, however, run the new Windows 10 S: essentially Windows 10, but limited to apps from the Windows Store. Microsoft’s Surface Laptop is available to buy from fave.co/2tagfhF. Prices are as follows: £949: 128GB SSD, Intel Core i5, 4GB RAM £1,249: 256GB SSD, Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM £1,549: 256GB SSD, Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM £2,149: 512GB SSD, Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM Bear in mind that those…
