8.width

323.6mm

292mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
9.volume

1236.11cm³

498.88cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

Performance

1.RAM

16GB

32GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
3.Uses flash storage

Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Plus 12.3” Intel Core i7-1165G7 2.8GHz / 32GB RAM / 1TB SSD
Flash-based storage devices such as SSDs have no mechanical components. Due to this, they are typically faster, run silently, and are more shock resistant than traditional HDDs.
The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
