Does the Surface Pro 7 come with the new Surface Slim Pen?

Best answer: No, Microsoft does not bundle the new Surface Slim Pen with the Surface Pro 7, requiring you to purchase it separately.

Should you buy the Surface Slim Pen?

The new Surface Slim Pen is a redesigned stylus with wireless charging (Surface Pro X only, for now) and a flat side to aid it fitting into a cradle charger. If you enjoy drawing on your tablets and plan to take advantage of what a stylus brings to the table in terms of functionality, the price may be worth it.

You could always buy the Surface Pro 7 without one to start with and see how you go.

Microsoft’s refreshed Surface Pro

Microsoft unveiled the Surface Pro 7 as the next step in the Pro line, taking everything that made the previous Windows-based tablets so good — including the familiar Surface 2-in-1 design — and adding a few notable improvements.

The USB Type-A port has been replaced with USB Type-C, something Surface fans have been hoping would make an appearance for some time now. That’s in addition to a single USB-A like previous Surface Pros. It’s a necessary compromise, allowing you to continue hooking up all your accessories and other devices that support the older connector.

For specifications, you’re getting a 12.3-inch Pixelsense display and options of 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB of LPDDR4x RAM. The RAM type, in particular, should represent a decent performance increase over the LPDDR3 RAM included in the previous Surface Pro. Additionally, Microsoft went with Intel’s latest 10th Gen CPUs, with Core i3, i5, and i7 options available. It’s quite the Windows tablet.
