The Surface Pro 7 is a competent upgrade with USB-C, refreshed processors, but little else that’s new

Source: The Surface Pro 7 is a competent upgrade with USB-C, refreshed processors, but little else that’s new I’ll be the first to admit that when the first generation Surface two-in-one launched, I wasn’t sure this was a device that people actually wanted to use. But Microsoft was clearly on to something, as the proliferation of Surface Pro’s among coffee shop dwellers clearly shows.

That means you’re not sharing any resources on that server with anybody else and you’ll get full control over everything that’s running on that machine. Previously, Azure already offered isolated Virtual Machine sizes for two very large virtual machine types. Those are still available, but their use cases are comparably limited to these new hosts, which offer far more flexibility. With ...
