The new Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is the latest slate tablet produced by the technology giant. It has Windows 10 which Microsoft has designed to be a desktop and mobile-ready operating system. Sadly, this means it is found slightly wanting in both areas, but is still far better than Windows 8.
What you need to know
The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 costs a little more than the average 12-inch tablet, but Microsoft are promoting it as a laptop replacement which makes it cheaper by comparison. Many of their Microsoft Surface Pro 4 adverts show the device with its keyboard attachments, and it makes sense that they may try to promote it as a tablet/laptop since it runs on Windows 10, which is ideally more of desktop operating system anyway. Its dimensions are 11.5 in. x 7.93 in. x 0.33 inches.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4 battery
The battery life is 9 hours, which is 13% longer than the average tablet battery life; though the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 may go for longer depending upon what you have it doing. For example, reading e-books will take up less power than a GPS powered navigation system.
The screen and resolution of the Microsoft Surface Pro 4
The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 has a 12.3 inch screen, which is the length from one corner to the other corner diagonally. It has a 2,736 by 1,824 pixels resolution with 267 PPI, which makes it 57% sharper than the average tablet.
Data and RAM
The tablet has a whopping amount of RAM at 4GB, which is more than enough for any task your tablet will need to undertake. It can store 128GB of data, and there is a MicroSD card so you can expand the memory further. Also, do not forget that you can rely on cloud storage if needed. The internal storage options are 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 camera
The camera has a 5 mega pixel front camera and an 8 mega pixel back camera. It can capture 1080p HD video, which is the highest quality a tablet is able to record with. There is also plenty of software on the device to ensure your images come out clean and smooth.
