are there any other options?
One with a pen?
As the title suggests, I am overall very happy with this. As some others suggest here, the price tag was a bit too large, but it's finally a tablet that has completely replaced my laptop. I use Visual Studio for coding, and do the other regular stuff on it (i.e. browsing, opening office docs, etc.) and it can handle all of them with no issues. Also, the stylus is awesome (did a screen-sharing through skype and the other side was able to follow my talk through the on-screen drawing). The keyboard is rather comfortable too.
On the negative side, I guess the battery-life could be improved and the price is a bit steep. Oh the track-pad fees a bit too slippery (but I suppose the trackpad is really not part of the Surface so I'm not sure if it fits within the review)
I have been working with computers since the 1980s, so I have seen a lot of changes in computer hardware. The surface pro 4 has an excellent design; I love the resolution of the tablet/screen and the backlit keyboard. I purchased the i5 processor model and it does what I need. The stylus is great for drawing pictures or writing but it is not a replacement for a mouse! I would rather use my finger to navigate on the screen then the stylus! The stylus is frustrating and should function "click wise " like a mouse.
The battery life is definitely not 9+ hours so I'm not sure where that number came from. I found the battery lasts 5 or 6 hours.
Overall a nice computer and portable for travel
I got a Surface Pro 4 a few weeks ago, but it had several issues that I decided to return it. To name the issues:
1- It randomly wouldn't wake up when I pressed the power button. It was really annoying as I had to keep the power button and wait for a restart.
2- The battery life was about 2-3 hours for a normal tasks of the tablet such as watching youtube videos.. not even multi-functioning.
3- It would freeze frequently during the normal tasks such as using google chrome.
4- The pen would not do some of the functions that it was supposed to do such as the "flicks".
not so good as you wish.
Overall a good notebook. I have had many in my life and my favourite was always the Sony Vio but they don't make them any more.
The tablet plus keyboard is excellent, but it is a bit heavy as I use it only for travel
the stylus pen is very useful in school. The start up of the comp is really fast. Everything loads fast. don't buy this if you're looking to play games aswell. It isn't intended for that.
One thing I can recommend microsoft to do is improve their sound recording and video recording. No one seems to mention that. It has a terrible mic quality. oh and i wish the keyboard could be strapped on instead of magnetic.
other than that it's a fantastic hybrid tablet/laptop.
Website doesn't show the magnetic snap keyboard...why? Nor does it offer it in black.. the dock is expensive but leaves room for expansion.
I didn't know if I was going to wait for the iPad pro but on seeing the price of the Apple product decided to go with this machine - I'm so glad I made the right decision! It looks like the iPad pro 128 GB and this are about the same price, but this comes with a stylus AND it's a full PC.
Instead of downloading movies and trying to figure out how to transfer them to the iPad I can download and view directly on this device. And why wouldn't I? The screen is gorgeous - perfect for showing friends movies and photos.
The stylus feels great, and combined with one note turns the machine into a do-everything device, from a full blown database editing tablet to a look up a recipe kitchen helper.
I can sit on an airplane and run the full version of Fruity Loops and Ableton - miles ahead of Garageband. I can run full Photoshop and Premier, I can run Sony Vegas.
Downsides are storage - you WILL need an external hard drive but no tablet manufacturer has got around this. You also will need to shell out for the keyboard - but it's great.
I have no regrets, I'm sure if you do your homework you won't either!
My 1st Surface - does many things very well, is light weight, very fast, resolution is high - very very clear.
The drawbacks I've experienced:
- the battery seems to lose charge when the Surface is turned off - lost 12% battery life over 40 hours
- when connected to a projector for presentations, sometimes it gets a little flaky - once mouse stopped working entirely, another time the mouse wouldn't grab what I was trying to click on, another time I had to manually tell it that it was connected to a projector.
This is my third Surface Pro...and coming from the Surface Pro 3, the question was always: will it be worth the upgrade because the Pro 3 was amazing! The answer...yes. I love this device...they took a great product and made it better, much better!
