A LEAN AND MEAN MACHINE
The latest Microsoft Surface Pro 4 tablet has a refined 12.3-inch PIxelSense display, an improved Type Cover keyboard, brand new Windows Ink and the Windows 10 Pro operating system.
tried out the tablet and says the Surface Pro 4 measures up to Microsoft’s claim that it can replace a laptop. The keys on the Type Cover are separated, allowing for a faster and smoother typing experience. The keyboard can be removed from and attached to the tablet with ease due to its magnetic feature. The other addition of the Surface Pen with the Windows Ink is an excellent tool for artists and designers for digital painting and sketching. The palm-detection technology is pretty cool, only allowing input from the pen’s touch, so you can easily rest your palm on the screen for better wrist mobility. The Windows Ink gives you full control of the tablet’s operating system with a single click of the pen, beneficial for when you need to quickly jot down notes, pull up a document or send an email. The only downside is that the Type Cover has to be purchased separately, which could put off the customer as the tablet itself costs Dhs3,299. Acer’s Aspire S13 laptop comes with a textured nano-imprint cover and has curved design that stands out from the other laptops. Weighing 1.27kg, S13 is thin and lightweight. Among the key features, the laptop offers a long battery life of almost 10 hours, great performance with sixth generation i7 processor, HD webcam and offers modern ports – USB, HDMI, mic/headphone and SD card. The laptop’s touchpad is a bit fussy and takes time to get around, though. However, this is still a top class ultraportable laptop. Price, Dhs2,499.
