TABLET-FIRST VS. LAP­TOP-FIRST

HWM (Malaysia) - - LEARN -

The Sur­face Pro 4, pow­ered by the 6th gen­er­a­tion In­tel ‘Sky­lake' m3, Core i5, and Core i7 pro­ces­sors, is pri­mar­ily a tablet-first de­vice. But with a 12.3-inch, 2,736 x 1,824-pixel Pix­elSense dis­play, up to 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD, Sur­face Pen sup­port, and Win­dows 10 Pro, this pow­er­ful tablet is no mere con­tent con­sump­tion de­vice. Flip out the built-in kick­stand, snap on a key­board cover, and the Sur­face Pro 4 be­comes a tablet that can re­place your lap­top.

On the other hand, the Sur­face Book is built like a lap­top, with a screen at the top and a key­board at the bot­tom. Equipped with a big­ger 13.5-inch, 3,000 x 2,000-pixel Pix­elSense dis­play, it also has a more com­fort­able key­board than the Sur­face Pro 4 Type Cover. Like the tablet, it's pow­ered by the 6th gen­er­a­tion In­tel Core i5 and Core i7 pro­ces­sors, sup­ports up to 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD, works with the Sur­face Pen, and has an 8-megapixel rear cam­era with aut­o­fo­cus and a 5MP front-fac­ing cam­era. The de­tach­able screen is a bonus, for the few oc­ca­sions you need to show the screen to other peo­ple quickly.

If the Sur­face Book is the ul­ti­mate lap­top; then it’s no hy­per­bole to call the Sur­face Pro 4 the ul­ti­mate tablet.
