Australian Review: Microsoft Surface Pro 4 – Fourth time’s the charm
Not quite notebooks and not quite tablets, Microsoft's family of Surface devices has typically featured well engineered hardware that made compromises in the pursuit of versatility. Last year's Surface Pro 3 brought the thunder and showed just how good hybrid could be, but still left a little to be desired.
The Surface Pro 4 is a much smaller step forward, but a very meaningful iteration. A lot of little changes push the Surface Pro 4 out of the niche and into the mainstream. There's still a few "ifs" and "buts", but it is now a device that's much easier to universally recommend.
Once again, the Surface Pro 4 is available in a plethora of configurations, varying in power and storage capacity. Mine review unit was kitted out as follows:
Intel Core i5 processor
This retails for AUD$1,999, excluding the TypeCover. A more with a Core m3 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSDs start at AUD$1,349, which the family maxes at at ADU$3,339 with a Core i7, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.
