Microsoft held its Windows 10 device event today in NYC and announced the highly anticipated Surface Pro 4. The device, which has a slightly larger display size of 12.3inches, starts at $899 but for the top end, it will cost you $2199 and that gets you 512GB of storage and 16GB of RAM.
The device, which does feel thinner in your hand, has the same level of polish that the Surface Pro 3 does but also has fans too, which was rumored to not be included with this model.
One notable difference with this version is that there is no Windows key on the bezel like the older models. The slightly larger display likely made it not possible to include the button so Microsoft opted to remove the button from the device.
The new keyboards feature much better spacing and new mechanism to create a higher quality typing experience. While the spacing may not sound like a huge deal, it gives you more confidence in your keystroke and is a very welcomed addition to the Surface experience.
And as expected, the device features Windows Hello support which adds not only a new layer of security for logging in, but also makes logging in much faster as you do not need to type in a password.
The upgrades included in the Pro 4 are certainly evolutionary, but that’s not a big surprise as the Pro 3 was well received and there is no reason to change things up drastically from the prior iteration.
Paul and I will have a more in-depth preview on the Surface Pro 4 shortly.
