Microsoft Surface Pro 8

Microsoft has recently released their most powerful Pro ever: the Surface Pro 8. The device is more than just a standard incremental update, however. Microsoft’s flagship tablet has been updated and modernized in the Pro 8.


The newly updated Pro is more modern than ever, boasting an Intel 11th Gen quad-core processor and up to 32GB of RAM. It also features a large 13-inch screen, up from 12.3-inch Pro 7, with higher resolution and thinner bezels. Additional upgrades include Thunderbird 4 USB-C ports, improved cameras, longer-lasting battery life, enhanced accessories, and more.


Rugged xCase for Surface

The Surface Pro 8 is an investment, and that’s where the ultra-rugged xCase comes in. Designed to extend the life of your Surface, the xCase provides peace of mind by protecting the device from drops, spills, shock, and more. The xCase touts many features, but what do these mean for the user?


Designed for Surface Certified

Microsoft's Designed for Surface (DfS) program certifies that products used alongside Surface devices are of the highest quality and the most reliable solution. The DfS team rigorously tests partner products, validating quality and compatibility for devices like the xCase for the Pro 8. Users can rest easy knowing the xCase offers the highest levels of protection for your device.


6-foot Drop Test – Passed

Engineered for extreme durability, the xCase endured drop (shock) tests as specified by MIL-STD-810H, Method 516.6, Procedure IV, a 26-drop sequence from 72’’ on 2’’ plywood surface backed by concrete to pass our rugged standards. The shock absorbing rubber corner bumpers and ridged shell combine with sealed buttons and ports to offer ultimate protection, even in the harshest and most demanding environments.


Enhanced Convenience

Several features come standard with each xCase, including an easy carry briefcase handle and back hand strap for added convenience and enhanced mobility. Also included is the removable bottom rail, which provides the flexibility to fully seal the device or allow for compatibility with the detachable keyboard, instantly transforming the tablet into a rugged laptop. Premium accessories include easel and stylus holder with tether.


Patented Snap Mount System

From delivery drivers mounting in vehicles to self-serve kiosks for quick-serve restaurants, the Pro 8 enables fast and easy mounting options nearly anywhere, thanks to the exclusive snap plate, included with each xCase, used in conjunction with the patented quick release Snap Mount System.


While the device may have gone through a significant redesign, our xCase still has all the features you know and love. Contact us or call 319-363-4121 to learn more about the ruggedized Surface Pro 8, also available as a complete bundled solution, or our entire line of DfS certified solutions.
