Here's how to get a free Microsoft Surface Pro power cord replacement

Microsoft to Replace Surface Pro Power Cords Due to Overheating Concerns Surface Pro Power Cords to be Recalled Due to Overheating Concerns

As such, Microsoft has said it will replace the cords of any owners who believe they are affected by the issue. But if you want a keyboard for the Surface Pro tablet you'll need to buy one separately. The Surface Book is a notebook that can become a tablet. The Surface Book costs a steep $1499.

The Surface Book has clearly seen some success as Microsoft doubles down on the line-up. Neither configuration is geared towards penny pinchers, as the top Surface Pro 4 SKU is priced at $2,699, while the most expensive Surface Book is an eye-watering $3,199.

Microsoft is recalling Surface Pro power cords worldwide due to overheating concerns related to the cable's design.

My System Pro 3 shows two updates: "Intel Corporation driver update for Intel® HD Graphics Family" and "System Firmware Update - 1/19/2016".

Microsoft has issued a voluntary product component recall affecting those who have purchased a Surface Pro, Surface Pro 2 or Surface Pro 3. You might want to keep a close eye on it the next time you plug it in - the power adaptors could be a fire risk.

While the company did reveal that 1TB versions were on the cards, they have hitherto been restricted to pre-order only.

Both Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 come with a Surface Pen that allows users to navigate Windows, draw and take notes.

With the Surface Pro lineup from Microsoft becoming hugely popular over the past few years, it appears that most of its problems have been ironed out.

In addition to its new laptop configurations, Microsoft is also launching a brand-new Surface Pen.
