Microsoft has released the Surface Pro 4 device which replaced the successful Surface Pro 3 that got released last year. However it seems that the tablet ecosystem has evolved a lot since the release of the Surface Pro 3 and there are many Surface “Clones” such as the Vaio Canvas or Lenovo Miix 700.
The Surface Pro 4 comes with a 12.3-inch display that supports a resolution of 2736×1824 pixels. Microsoft also brought a new Type Cover keyboard, which has a larger space between the keys. The new device comes with a sixth-generation Intel Skylake processor that improves the 3D performance by up to 81%.
It is good to know that heat is now distributed throughout the top portion of the rear panel which eliminates the hot spot and allowing the Core i7 and Core i5 chips to run at full speed.
When it comes to price we remind you that the Surface Pro 3 (with Core i3) had a starter price of 800 dollars while the new Surface Pro 3 that comes with the Core M CPU costs 899 dollars. However, if you want to get the best Surface Pro 4 device out there (that features Core i7 and 16GB of RAM), you will need to pay 1799 dollars for the 256GB internal memory variant or 2199 dollars for the 512GB internal memory variant.
We also remind you that the Type Cover keyboard is not included in the package and you will need to pay 130 dollars for it. When it comes to performance, we can clearly say that we can’t even compare the Surface Pro 4 with Apple’s iPad Pro, because it’s clearly the new Microsoft device is way powerful than the one that Apple just released.
