The new Surface Pro 4: the tablet to replace your laptop

The new Surface Pro 4: the tablet to replace your laptop

Yesterday saw Microsoft’s Windows 10 Devices Briefing and several new product launches. Here at Total, we wanted to update you on the exciting launch of Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 tablet.

It’s important to be clear that with the launch of the Surface Pro 4, the Surface Pro 3 will no longer be available. However the slimmed down Surface 3 (note the absence of ‘Pro’), aimed more at the education sector, has not been replaced and is still available.

The Surface Pro 4 aims to deliver the best Windows 10 experience, and runs all your desktop software, including Office. It’s truly a tablet that can replace a laptop, with a multi-position kickstand and improved keyboard.

So how does the Surface Pro 4 compare to the Surface Pro 3? Key features of the Surface Pro 4 include:

  • 30% faster performance than Surface Pro 3
  • New larger 12.3” screen with a resolution of 2736 x 1824
  • All-day battery life of up to 9 hours
  • Built for Windows 10, with improved security
  • Lighter, weighing just 800g, and only 8.45mm thick
  • New docking station, and Microsoft’s best ever Surface keyboard
  • High quality pen with eraser button and 1,024 levels of pressure. 

Microsoft announced several other products along with the Surface Pro 4, and in particular the Surface Book, the company’s first ever laptop, looks really interesting. The Surface Book is released in the UK sometime early in 2016, so we’ll have more details nearer then.

You can watch the full Windows 10 Devices Briefing here, but be warned it’s nearly two hours long.

We really see the Surface Pro 4 as moving tablet technology up a notch or two. The new device is available with 6th Gen Intel® Core™ m3, i5, and i7 processors, while three sizes of SSD can be specified – 128GB, 256GB and 512GB – and the memory options are 4GB, 8GB and 16GB.

The Surface Pro 4 is available to order next week with delivery from week commencing 9 November.
