Review lengkap microsoft surface pro 4


Microsoft has really hammered trang chính the whole "Surface tablets can replace your laptop" mantra for a long time now, so much so that it"s sort of lost most of its meaning. Sure, the statement is largely, Surface Pro"s are wonderful machines, if rather pricey, but I feel lượt thích Microsoft needs to lớn get the hint that we know this already. The thing is, the lademo Surface Pro 4 not only replaces your laptop, but your desktop and notepad too, it"s one hell of an device.

This might be the only device you"ll ever need then, that is of, until the Surface Pro 5 finally shows itself to the world. Currently slated for a Spring 2017 release, we won"t quite be seeing it just yet, but it"s worth bearing in mind that if you"re planning on picking up a Surface Pro 4, you might be best waiting for the imminent reduction in price.

Surface Pro 4 review: Pricing

Before I get down lớn the Đánh Giá, we have sầu lớn talk about options. The Surface Pro 4 is expensive sầu, no doubt, but how austere your Surface Pro 4 life will be depends on the specification you choose. I had a mid-range Surface Pro 4, with a 256GB SSD, an Intel i5-6300U processor & 8GB of RAM. The price for the tablet alone (including the Surface Pen stylus) is £1,079, but this is not a credible work device unless you buy the £110 Type

If you want to lớn cheap out on a but keep the i5, half the RAM và half the storage, your tablet subtotal will be £849. Can"t stomach that? Switch out the Chip i5 for a fanless (and 20g lighter) bộ vi xử lý m3 for a base price of £749. Step up to lớn a bộ vi xử lý i7 và you"ll pay either £1,499 or £1,799 if you want 16GB of RAM và 512GB of storage.

I have sầu the middle-of-the-road choice, so can"t on the performance of the low-power m3; if Microsoft makes these available for reviews I"ll see how big the performance drop is.

Surface Pro 4 review: Display

By itself, the Surface Pro 4 is a light, if slightly thick tablet with a 12.3in screen. Despite having the same footprint as last year"s Surface Pro 3, thinner bezels mean the screen is 0.3in larger diagonally. Screen resolution has also increased, up to lớn 2,736 x 1,824 from 2,160x1,440 on the Surface Pro 3. This takes px density from 216ppi up to lớn a huge 267ppi - narrowly beating the 12.9in iPad tablet Pro"s 264ppi, if you"re


It"s sharp. Really sharp. Lines drawn with the Surface Pen are so smooth you can hardly tell they"re on a screen at all. Text looks great, too, with no jagged edges in sight. To get anything done with great effect you will need to lớn ensure Windows 10"s display scaling options are mix khổng lồ 200%; 100% is laughably difficult lớn read. If you hook the Surface Pro 4 up lớn an external monitor, you"ll be happy lớn know that Windows 10 now supports per-display scaling, meaning you won"t over up with giant windows and text a 24in Full HD monitor - one of the biggest gripes we had with every version of Windows before 10.

The numbers add up, too. Our calibrator measured the Surface Pro 4"s screen capable of displaying 97.5% of the sRGB gamut, meaning it"s just a fraction off total At maximum brightness, the Surface Pro 4 pumps out 400cd/mét vuông, which is far too bright for indoor use. Thankfully, automatic brightness is effective sầu but subtle; it doesn"t wantonly flick between modes and always seemed perfectly adjusted for my liking. Blacks are well-served, with the screen letting just 0.3cd/mét vuông of light through on pure blacks, even on maximum brightness. This gives the Surface Pro 4 an overall figure of 1,316:1, which is very credible. accuracy is similarly impressive sầu, with an average delta-E figure of just 1.61. What this means in real terms is the screen produces that are, for the most part, indistinguishable from the "perfect" version of that This is great for graphic designers, artists & photographers who dem& accuracy, as they won"t have sầu to invest in an expensive sầu monitor. Particularly important are greys, which were all accurate. The weakest area, as is the case with many screens, was bright red and bright orange, with the latter producing a rather high delta-E of 4.05 and looking a shade paler than it should.

Displays on thinner tablets are often by heavy backlight bleeding around the edges. This isn"t the case with the Surface Pro 4; if you look very closely you"ll find it, but only on a static, blaông xã screen. I even used the calibrator to lớn check for patchy brightness right at the extreme edges of the screen and it noted a mere 0.04cd/m2 brightness disparity on a blaông xã image.

Surface Pro 4 review: Design and build quality

The Surface Pro 4 weighs 786g, which is heavy for a tablet but perhaps forgivable when you both its kích thước and specification. I was perfectly happy carrying the tablet around the office, leaning it on my knee và balancing it on my arm when taking notes or doodling in meetings. I used it instead of a notepad thanks to lớn the excellent Surface Pen và had no issues sitting it in my lap on the sofa.


The kickstvà is superb. It"s strong enough lớn hold the Surface up but easy enough to lớn adjust with one h&. There are no notches, either: you simply tilt it to lớn whatever angle you want & leave it there.

It does look chunky, even though it"s only 9mm thiông chồng, but this is to the fans & the full-size USB3 port on the right edge. I"m happy Microsoft decided lớn keep the USB3 port và not replace it with a smaller USB-C; there aren"t enough USB-C peripherals yet và having lớn carry around an adapter would have sầu been a huge faff. Next to lớn the USB3 port is a Mini DisplayPort, which in very handy when you"re in máy tính mode. Finally, there"s a 3.5mm headphối jaông xã on the left side.

But first: notepad mode. The Surface Pro 4 is perhaps the best advertisement for Microsoft OneNote you wish for. More accurately, if you buy a Surface Pro 4 you"ll have almost no choice but to use OneNote. The Surface Pen, which is included in the price of the tablet, includes a button on the top dedicated to lớn opening Onelưu ý. Double tap it and you"ll open Onechú ý with a version of whatever you were just looking at that you can scribble on. It all happens in an instant, which is crucial for making this tablet"s transformation into lớn a notepad as seamless as possible. I bởi find it a little bit annoying that Microsoft doesn"t let you customise what the eraser button does, triggering those feelings of the inflexibility you get from Apple products. What if I find a note-taking tiện ích better than OneNote? Heaven forbid.


The Surface Pen is powered by a AAA battery, which Microsoft claims has an "all-year" battery life. There"s no way khổng lồ check the status of your pen"s battery, though, so you should keep a AAA handy khổng lồ avoid disappointment. The Pen has 1,024 degrees of pressure sensitivity, which make it a genuinely attractive propositions for digital artists who may be using a dedicated pad for drawing.

I"m no artist; most of my pen usage was in the form of notes, but it did feel incredibly responsive sầu và, more importantly, accurate. If I piông chồng a thin pen nib in Onelưu ý but press as hard as I can, the line I draw is satisfyingly thiông xã. If I draw a tiông xã or circle an object on screen, the pen trail thins as I lift it off the screen. It"s immensely satisfying more than anything else, and makes writing on the Surface a genuine joy. The palm rejection is as good as it gets and at no point was I able to trichồng the Surface inkhổng lồ thinking my finger was the pen or vica versa.

The primary button the Surface Pen is essentially a way to turn taps into lớn right-clicks. In Onechú ý, holding down this button performs a lasso select function, letting you draw around an object. The button at the top doubles as an eraser. Press it against the screen in Onechú ý and it"ll erase, either the entire line or part of it depending on your settings.

Storing the Pen when not in use is better than any previous Surface Pro. Microsoft has bowed to pressure and has placed strong magnets on the left edge of the tablet that, while perhaps not svào enough khổng lồ withst& abuse in a cluttered backpaông chồng, means I don"t feel like it"s at risk of getting lost.

In short, as a tablet the Surface Pro 4 is superb. But it"s far too expensive by itself và that means, perversely, you have sầu lớn spkết thúc more money khổng lồ get more bang for your buck. Enter the Type
