The Microsoft Surface Pro 9 (starting at $999) is somewhat of a frustrating machine to review. Aside from updated processors, this is virtually the same as the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 I reviewed last year. I don’t have a problem with iterative releases, but I hoped Microsoft would do something to make the latest edition of their flagship Windows 11 2-in-1 more appealing. Sadly, that isn’t the case.

The most interesting thing about the Surface Pro 9 is that it comes in two distinct flavors. There’s a version packing a 12th-gen Intel Core CPU and another with the new Microsoft SQ3 ARM processor. That latter model also offers 5G connectivity, which is a first for the Surface line. And, at least based on what Microsoft showed at its Microsoft Surface event, the 5G model is the only one taking advantage of new neural processing unit (NPU) features.
