Surface Pro 4 laptop review
The laptop-tablet crossover is Microsoft’s product for the professional market. It is ultrathin, fast and versatile, and packs a premium balance between portability and power.
It is both a desktop and a tablet. it packs the screen alone with a detachable keyboard and a built-in Kickstand so users can set the screen at almost any angle.
One of its main features is the 12.3-inches PixelSense Display, a high-performance screen with 2160×1440 resolution, 216 Pixels per Inch, and 3.1 million total pixels.
The display also improved maximum brightness, contrast ratio, absolute color accuracy and viewing angle performance compared to previous Surface Pro 3. Additionally, the PixelSense Display comes to life with the Surface Pen and multitouch capabilities.
The Surface Pen, alongside Windows Ink, enables users to sketch and write on the Surface. The feature is ideal for designers, music producers, and video editors, but, for general users, there is a sticky notes app to write memos any time they want.
Another feature worth noting are backlit keys on the keyboard and the large trackpad with multi-touch and gesture recognition.
