Microsoft has so far skipped the tablet thinning race for some time and therefore this new tablet is no exception , made out of a metal unibody with a kick stand that allows it to lay either in display mode and almost flat (studio mode) . The tablet which now uses a fanless design (hybrid cooling on the i7 version) is also said to be more quiet than the outgoing model , on the side , you can still find a full size USB 3.0 port , mini display and a microSzd expansion slot for further expansion . The sides also contain a magnetic edge which will allow you to paste the surface pen on to while you are on the desk .
Display wise , the new tablet features a 2736x1824 resolution IPS "Pixelsense"display . This is covered by a protective layer of glass which we believe is Gorilla Glass 5 . The 3:2 display touchscreen display also features 10 finger multitouch as well as support for the new Surface Pen which now supports 4096 pressure level points as well as the Surface Dial - the hockey puck seen on the surface studio allowing you to basically use this as a graphic tablet if need be .
