Surface Pro 4 Review – a laptop or tablet? Apparently, one can say that with one stone Microsoft is trying to kill two birds. Interestingly, at the same time, it doesn’t want to disappoint the desktop users whose appetite for power knows no limit, however, driven by circumstances they are forced to adopt mobility as well. Yes, you got it right. It’s trying to kill three birds (I beg apology from linguists). However, blending portability and power, Microsoft is trying to stay true to the expectation of one and all. Techvedic Technologies reviews the product to let you make the best decision.

Design and Hardware
From 13 mm to 8.4 mm—Surface Pro is getting slimmer and slimmer with time; however, the screen-size is following a reverse trend – getting larger and larger. In Surface Pro 2, the display size was 10.6 inch, in Surface Pro 3, 12-inch, and now in Surface Pro 4 it is 12.3 inch. In terms of weight, both the successive models measure the same as 1.69 pounds, i.e. 766 grams by themselves. However, including the keyboard cover and stylus, it reaches to 2.5 pounds (1.13 Kg). The kickstand is highly adjustable (from 22 to 150 degrees). The cover folds up or detaches entirely to turn into a laptop or tablet. The stylus or so-called pen sans the plastic loop. Now it has a flat edge along one side that can stick with the left or ridge edge of the tablet via a strong magnetic connection.
With 6th generation Intel core processor, 4GB RAM, up to 1TB solid state drive and 9 hours battery life, and Windows 10 – that serves almost as an icing on the cake, it would be hard to raise question on its performance. There is no dearth of accessories. Find Surface Dock, Surface Pro 4 Type Cover with Fingerprint, Surface Pen Tip Kit, Surface Pen, 65W power supply, Surface Mini DisplayPort to HDMI AV adapter, wireless display adapter (share your Surface content on HDTV or monitor), and more. Eraser-like button featuring at the other end point of the pen brings up OneNote. It can sync effortlessly with the user’s phone or tablet, provided the Microsoft cloud services are configured properly. Apart from drawing and sketching, the pen works with almost all apps and their respective areas – web browsers, pop-up box, emails, etc.
