In our Microsoft Surface Pro 8 review, we praise its gorgeous display and strong performance. We're also fond of its dual Thunderbolt 4 ports and excellent webcam. We give the Surface Pro 8 a rating of 4 of 5 stars and our esteemed Editor's Choice award. 

During performance tests, the Surface Pro handled everything we threw its way. In one test, we bombarded it with 24 Chrome browser tabs. Two streamed YouTube videos at 1080p and two ran Twitch streams. The Surface Pro 8 didn't even flinch. Our review unit had an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU and 16GB of RAM.

Weighing in at 1.96 pounds and 11.3 x 8.2 x 0.37 inches, the Surface Pro 8 is slightly heavier but narrower than the Surface Pro 7 (1.74 pounds, 11.5 x 7.9 x 0.33 inches). It's lighter and thinner than the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (2.9 pounds, 11.6 x 7.8 x 0.6 inches). 

Connectivity-wise, the Surface Pro 8 affords you two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a Surface Connect port and Microsoft’s excellent magnetic charging port. There's also a 3.5mm headphone jack on board and a Surface Type Cover port. 

If you're in the market for an ultra-portable, convertible tablet PC, the Surface Pro 8 is a solid buy.
