Roll your eyes...it's OK. Surface pro 7 is fanless and imho gets too hot. I returned it fir a full refund. I will make do with my surface pro 3. 🤪 

The i5 version is fanless.  The i7 version still has a fan.

yes i know and the fanless one overheats.  I cant afford the I7 with fan.  Will wait and see what October brings.

I have a Pro7+ i7 with a fan. Heat is reasonable, but battery life could always be longer. Likely won't see much improvement with the 8 in these factors unless at a minimum Intel Alder lake chips are inside with promised lower power usage and big little core options (similar to what ARM does to get efficiency benefits). Even then this is untested technology for Intel so who knows how well the first generation of these chips will actually perform in these areas. Since these chips are set to be released later this year, it's questionable if a Pro 8 would include them since Microsoft often does not included very recently released chip generations in their hardware, but it's always possible!
