Keeping connected, anywhere

MS October updates

Introducing new Microsoft Surface updates

The idea of working and learning from home, which at one point felt temporary, has for many of us started to feel more permanent.

Even as some people in cities around the world return to work and school in person, many others have found themselves reorganising homes to create makeshift offices and classrooms. 

Whether your commute is across the house or across town, the PC continues to play an integral role in keeping all of us connected to our work, school, and everyday life – and each person in the household needs one.

Microsoft is bringing the features most loved by their Surface laptop customers in the Surface Laptop Go with a smaller, more affordable design. 

For people who need to stay connected and want the versatility of a 2:1 with an edge-to-edge screen, they are bringing new updates to Surface Pro X including new app experiences, enhanced performance and a new platinum finish.
