Microsoft officially updated the Surface Pro 3 at its NYC hardware event, announcing the new Surface Pro 4. The new Surface Pro 4 offers what you liked about its predecessor, but it’s a lot better this time in a 8.2mm thick body.
The Surface Pro 4 features a 12.3-inch PixelSense screen with 267ppi, making it the highest screen resolution available on any Surface device yet.
Plus, there’s a keyboard integrated with fingerprint sensor and scissor keys, as well as four USB 3.0 ports and two 4K display ports.
Under the hood is Intel’s fifth-generation Skylake processor, which the company touts to be 50-percent faster than the MacBook Air and 30-percent than the Surface Pro 3.
Not a Pencil, but Microsoft has added Surface Pen to accompany the device. The Surface Pen can hold on up to 1024 points of pressure sensitivity, and you can also activate Cortana with it – just push and hold on the pen’s eraser on the back. The peripheral magnetically attaches to the edge of the Surface Pro 4; a hassle-free gig indeed.
With up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB SSD storage onboard, the new Surface Pro 4 will be available starting October 26 for $899. Pre-orders are open now.
