Microsoft Surface Pro 4 review | Design:
Since Surface Pro 3, iPad Pro, IdeaPad Miix 700 and Satellite Radius 12 were giving real hard time to this hybrid laptop. So designers of Microsoft have to deliver something incredible and exceptional. The main focus was to make use of accessories used by Surface Pro 3. The device team leader Panos and his crew have to be utterly creative about the improved design. The team is greatly intelligent and they let go things that were not necessary for the design.
The original footprint of the device is intact. Designers removed the capacitive Windows button to gain area for screen space. The bezels are thinner than last time, so screen size can be stretched to 12.3 inches. Woaaahhh! That’s a pretty big number.
In previous version, the resolution was 216 ppi with 2,160 x 1,440 pixels. Microsoft has maintained the aspect ratio of 3:2 with a weird resolution of 267 ppi with 2,736 x 1,824 pixels for boosting display quality.
New flashier back with Windows logo and has a thickness of 8.4mm( 9.1 mm in Surface 3), the difference is not that much.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4 review | Performance:
When you buy a tech gadget, don’t compromise performance over design. Surface Pro 3 tried hard to thrive with “Haswell” gen 4 chip. While rivals were equipped with gen 5 chips and i7 core. Microsoft made a leap jump over its rivals, presented the device with Intel’s newest Skylake gen 6 chip. This way it will perform faster than its competitors like MacBook Air. Some versions of the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 are gonna come with i7 core which is the fastest mainstream chip from Intel. Storage drive technology was also improvised with PCIe 3.0, so faster data transfer now.

The Keyboard is the most intrinsic component of Microsoft Surface Pro 4. That keyboard made Microsoft tout “ The Tablet that can replace laptop”. We are aware of detachable keyboard. The type cover of this hybrid laptop is thinner than its last version. Key spacing is improved for providing a better typing experience. Track-pad is made up of glass and 40 percent larger for giving more freedom to move a cursor. But yeah, still not lap friendly! That’s why Microsoft built Surface Book.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4 review | Pen:
Top notch Pen of Surface Pro is the leading Stylus in the market now. No more stylus loop, it can be attached to one side of laptop with magnetic strip. There two buttons, one near to the tip and other on upper end. Second button now functions as eraser when you need to.
