Surface Pro 4

With those kind of specs, you’re basically carrying a laptop….. in tablet form. The Surface Pro 4’s stylus has 1,024 touch levels  and an “all-year” battery life, which is something of a double-edged sword since you can’t actually recharge it. The Surface Pen also has a tail eraser for manual erasing, and a selection of interchangeable tips for different tasks that change how the Pen feels and responds.


When we talk about productivity, I doubt there are other tablets in the market that can compare to the Surface Pro 4. It runs full Windows 10 so you can basically take your office with you wherever you go. If Microsoft does this right, I do think that the Surface Pro 4 is the future when it comes to Next Gen tablets. With Apple releasing the iPad Pro this year, we can’t help but compare the two. Given that you’re about to drop $1000 on hardware, a lot of people might find the iPad Pro a little limited. It runs iOS, not OS X, and while powerful guts and a robust app ecosystem go a long way, it’s not a full-blown system.  The Surface Pro 4, on the other hand, has a fully-fledged version of Windows 10. You’re better off comparing the Surface Pro with a Laptop than a Tablet.
