90% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 for Business review: Still in love

After a few months of the Surface Pro 8 sitting on a shelf, I have gone back to using it as my main device. I'm once again enjoying using multiple windows for multitasking, not having to worry about any extra workarounds, and I still have complete and total portability. So, iPad or Surface Pro 8? With so much uncertainty over the future of iPadOS, I'm no longer as confident as I was once about the future of Apple's high-end tablets. That said, Apple continues to make the best tablet-specific devices you can buy. If you're on the fence about whether to go with the Surface Pro 8 or an iPad Pro, I'll say this: you can't go wrong with either device, as long as you know what you're getting yourself into. The iPad Pro can do a lot of things, but only a few things really well. Whereas the Surface Pro 8 can do a lot of things really well, but it has its fair share of hiccups and gotchas as well. At the end of the day, however, you're getting a full computer in the Surface Pro 8 and, currently, 80% of one in the iPad Pro.

The Surface Pro 8 could be old news, folks: the Microsoft Surface live event is taking place on October 12, and all current leaks point towards us seeing our first glimpse of the hotly-anticipated Surface Pro 9. Still, you can read out original review of the current-gen model right here - we loved it when it came out in 2021, and we still love it today. With the Surface Pro 8, Microsoft finally took the aging design of the Surface Pro lineup and completely modernized it. This is the biggest change we’ve seen on this flagship device in years, rolling out some long-overdue design improvements like thinner bezels, rounded edges, and the inclusion of the Thunderbolt 4. The Surface Pro 8 is still very much recognizable as part of Microsoft's core line of Windows devices, a one-time candidate for our best tablets list. At the same time, it truly feels like a new generation with these design changes and some of the fastest hardware that's ever been seen in a Windows tablet. And, although we are lamenting the loss of some legacy ports, this is the best Surface Pro we’ve got in years.

As the latest in Microsoft's 2-in-1 lineup, the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 feels like a next-gen device. Its exceptional display quality makes watching videos a delight. The powerful CPU ensures you won’t experience significant slowdown when browsing the web, video chatting or performing other everyday tasks.

Having said all that, the Surface Pro 8 is a very hard act to beat for sheer versatility. Used solo, it’s an excellent tablet, but when combined with the Surface Pro Signature keyboard it’s a thoroughly competent and powerful laptop replacement, while the Surface Slim Pen 2 turns it into a handy graphics tool. Some will bemoan the absence of an affordable Core i3 entry model but, if you only have room for one Windows device in your life and expect to be carrying it around with you a lot, then the new Surface Pro 8 has to be top of the list of devices to look at.

After a few weeks of my iPad Pro sitting on a shelf, I have gone back to using it as my main device. But I'm already missing some of the features and things I could do on the Surface Pro 8 that I can't on the iPad Pro -- like hook up a webcam to live stream an event over LTE (something I actually did recently for family members that couldn't attend a funeral). So, iPad or Surface Pro 8? For me, it'll come down to what iPadOS 16 does or doesn't add to the iPad. But for everyone else, if you're on the fence about whether to go with the Surface Pro 8 or an iPad Pro, I'll say this: you can't go wrong with either device. They're both fantastic in their own right. At the end of the day, however, you're getting a full computer in the Surface Pro 8 and, currently, 80% of one in the iPad Pro.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 review - A premium and portable 2-in-1 powerhouse for professionals
Source: Tech Nave English
Since its debut back in 2013, the Microsoft Surface Pro lineup has pretty much changed the way we see 2-in-1 devices. While not perfect, the original Surface Pro proved that it is possible to have a full Windows desktop experience on a compact tablet form factor. Now some 9 years later, Microsoft has refined the lineup with the release of the Surface Pro 8 - the tech giant's most powerful 2-in-1 device yet. However, at a hefty starting price of RM4950, and up to RM8750 for its most specced out variant (without the keyboard case and stylus), is the Surface Pro 8 worth it? Well, let's find out together, shall we?

The Surface Pro 8 is the device many people have been waiting years for. Microsoft has finally updated its design, with a larger display and slimmer bezels bringing it closer to a traditional laptop than ever before. While not OLED, the gorgeous screen is now a buttery-smooth 120Hz, while performance from 11th-gen Intel chips is excellent. Other highlights include a great video calling experience, solid battery life and impressive speakers. The new Signature Keyboard and Slim Pen 2 are excellent accessories for the Pro 8, but they’re also symptomatic of its main issue. In addition to a higher starting price, Microsoft expects you to pay hundreds of pounds/dollars extra for the full experience. With that in mind, you have to be extremely confident that the Surface Pro 8 can rival the best laptops available right now. If it’s not going to be your primary productivity device, it’s worth considering more affordable options.

80% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 review: more of the (super) same
Source: Stuff TV English
The Surface Pro 8 is easily the most fun Surface Pro made to date. This series was already a top contender for those after a tablet-laptop combo that can do serious work, but Intel’s Xe graphics makes it feel like a miniature game console. Yes, the “real” gamers may laugh at that idea, but imagine how hyped everyone would be if iPads could suddenly play games like Control and Skyrim, without simply streaming them over a network. It does cost a lot, though. Our review Surface Pro 8 is priced at £1349 for just the tablet. The new Surface Slim Pen 2 is £120, the keyboard £160. But them as a bundle and you can save £20, but we’re still looking at £1610. Yikes. And it just won’t be suitable for some of you, with battery life that does not quite last a full day of work.

80% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 review: Surface perfection comes at a high price
Source: Hardware Zone English
The only major downside to Surface Pro 8 is the price. Just look at the table above. Furthermore, accessories are sold separately and easily cost a few hundred more. Prices start at S$1,649, but that unit has little memory and storage. The cheapest configuration with 16GB of memory is S$2,099 but that only has 256GB of storage. Though with cloud storage so affordable these days, I think most people can get by with that. If you want a unit with 16GB of memory and 512GB SSD, prepare to cough up S$2,859. If it’s any consolation that configuration comes with the Core i7-1185G7 processor. As tested, my system with a Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, and 256GB of storage is S$2,399. However, the keyboard and pen is an additional S$399. This brings the complete system price to S$2,798. No matter how you look at it, the Surface Pro 8 is considerably dearer than its rivals. All in all, it seems like Microsoft has finally perfected the template for a high-end Windows detachable notebook. And really, price is really the only major thing holding me back from giving the Surface Pro 8 a hearty recommendation

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 for Business review: Surprisingly snappy
Source: It Pro English
As always, the main question is whether or not the Surface Pro 8 is worth the price of admission. The answer boils down to how much you will use its undeniably attractive skills; it’s easy to rip off the keyboard and use this as a tablet, and the stylus works beautifully on that deluxe screen. Or, if you just want to use it as an ultra-portable laptop, it’s perfectly capable of filling that role. Performance is strong enough to handle everything the average office-based employee will need to accomplish, although we do have our gripes. We wish the battery life was longer, especially bearing in mind its weight when used as a tablet, and come to that, we wish Windows 11 could hold a candle to iPadOS as a tablet operating system. However, if you’re a Windows-based business and want maximum flexibility from your devices, then the Surface Pro 8 performs its multiple roles better than convertible rivals. The price sticks in the craw, especially considering the brief warranty and the meaty upsell for the keyboard and stylus, but there’s no arguing with the quality.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Review
Source: Reviewed.com English
The Surface Pro 8 strikes a nice balance between the Surface Pro X, which is sleek and light but doesn't work with a lot of apps, and the Surface Pro 7, which has a processor that's more compatible with x86 apps, but features a bulkier design. The Pro 8 has the same slim, rounded body that makes the Surface Pro X a better tablet than its predecessors, and it's more powerful than previous Surface Pros, making it a more suitable work device. You should consider its overall value before buying. You can get more powerful laptops for a few hundred bucks less, like the M1 MacBook Air or Dell XPS 13. There are also better and cheaper tablets out there, such as Apple's new M1 iPad Air, or the M1 iPad Pro from last year (though that requires a separate purchase for the Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil). Still, the Surface Pro 8 proves it's possible to make a tablet that's powerful enough to work well as a laptop, while being thin and light enough to work as a tablet, without making too many sacrifices.

Surface Pro 8 Long-Term Review: Finally, A Real Upgrade
Source: Make Use Of English
If you're looking for the highest-quality Windows laptop out there, you can't do much better than this. Unlike the Pro X, whose subpar performance made it difficult to recommend, the Pro 8 has excellent functionality wrapped in a stylish shell. Of course, you'll also pay a premium for that combination: there will be a lot of other laptops which are, in raw terms, better value for money. But no other device can imitate the ease with which the Surface Pro switches between self-contained tablet and a full-bodied laptop.

80% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 review: still leading the way in 2-in-1 laptops
Source: T3 English
The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 improves on what came before it in a few big ways whilst maintaining the essence of the Surface Pro series. This is one of the best 2-in-1 laptops for those who plan to use it in each form equally, it switches between laptop and tablet without any fuss. If you don’t intend to use it much as a laptop, this is one of the most powerful tablets you can buy. It’ll be great for note-taking and drawing too. Not everything about it is perfect, the battery life could use a boost and it’s a shame there’s no MicroSD card slot. But when it comes down to it the only reasons I would say not to buy this is if you already own the Surface Pro 7 or if you’re only planning to use it as a laptop because you can get more power for your money elsewhere and the design of the keyboard means it’s not going to be quite comfortable enough to use on the go.

Ultimately, the Surface Pro 8 is an excellent improvement on the Surface Pro formula. That’s great news if you like the 2-in-1 form factor with a kickstand and detachable keyboard. If you don’t like that, I don’t think the Pro 8 does anything that will win you over. If you’ve got an older Surface Pro model and really like it, but are in the market for something newer and faster, the Pro 8 is a great choice. There are alternate 2-in-1s from other PC manufacturers that offer a similar form factor and experience, but I find they often don’t stack up to Microsoft’s Surface Pro line when it comes to features, build quality and other aspects.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 isn’t a huge step forward for Microsoft’s tablet line, but it’s a definite move in the right direction. The device fixes a number of niggling flaws in past Surface Pro’s designs and offers key performance upgrades thanks to the inclusion of Thunderbolt connectivity, an Intel 11th Gen CPU and 120Hz refresh rate screen. This makes it a better option for buyers that want a laptop first and tablet second, if you invest in the optional keyboard cover. But it’s desktop-focussed Windows 11 software makes it a poor choice for anyone that just wants a tablet first and foremost.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Review
Source: Toptenreviews English
One of the biggest downfalls of the Surface Pro 7 was its battery life, lasting a paltry 3 hours and 12 minutes in the PCMark 8 battery test. We’ve since graduated to PCMark 10, but the Surface Pro 8 knocks that number out of the park with 8 hours and 15 minutes, making this a device you can totally use to work all day without needing a charger. This is probably largely due to Microsoft’s decision to adhere to the Intel Evo program and to limit the refresh rate of the display to 60Hz by default. With how portable the Surface Pro 8 is, it’s nice to know it’s not going to run out of battery within a couple of hours, as the charger can add extra bulk. The numbers are slightly less impressive with our video playback test, where the Surface Pro 8 lasts just 6 hours and 32 minutes, but that’s still a pretty nice little Netflix binge. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably realised that video conferencing is more important now than it has ever been, and having a laptop (or tablet) with a decent webcam is a godsend, as we all want to look good in our morning meetings.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Review: Still the King of the detachable - 8 generations later

The Surface Pro 8 now offers support for Thunderbolt 4, better GPU performance, a faster but hungrier Core i7 chip and big bright 13-inch screen. There are some downsides to the upgrade but not enough to not recommend the Pro 8 to anyone with older Pro models, moving away from the iPad Pro or pricing out the competition from Dell and Lenovo at the moment with the Latitude 13, 7320 and ThinkPad X12 here in the states. The Surface Pro 8 can run heavier, louder and hotter than some older models, but it also out performs most detachable in the market while also doubling as a dedicate workstation and ultra-portable do-everything device.

This new stylus is a highlight. It supports 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and tilt detection, and there is almost no delay when writing. With a 99% sRGB color gamut screen, Surface Pro 8 is also adequate as a professional drawing tool. If you want to get a more complete experience on Microsoft Surface Pro 8, the combination of the new Surface Pro special professional keyboard and the second-generation ultra-thin stylus is indispensable, especially this pen, with it, Whether you want to write, paint or code words, Surface Pro 8 will have a wider range of application scenarios.

90% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 review: A superior Windows 11 tablet
Source: PC World English
All of this presents a question: How well do we know the Surface Pro 8? From a hardware perspective, quite well: We can certainly see the value of the larger, superior display, and the tablet’s audio sounds great, too. Sure, the webcam appears to need a little work, but that’s a tweak it should be able to implement quickly. We’re not happy with how hastily Microsoft pushed this tablet into our hands, and our initial negative reaction is still justified. That was then, however. Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8 now offers leading-edge performance at a competitive price, plus a top-notch screen and inking experience. We think that the Surface Pro 8 is simply the best Windows tablet on the market right now.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
For 2021, Microsoft has finally fulfilled the dream of Surface Pro (mostly). The latest gen Surface Pro 8 features an updated design borrowed from Surface Pro X with smaller bezels and softly rounded thin sides. The display is larger now and close to a mainstream Ultrabook size at 13”, and as ever it supports pen and touch. The updated display digitizer combined with the new MS Slim Pen 2 make for a much improved writing and drawing experience. The convertible tablet that becomes a laptop with a kickstand runs Windows 11 on Intel 11th gen Core i5 and i7 processors, now with an upgradable SSD and still soldered RAM. Thunderbolt 4 replaces legacy ports. As ever, the Type Cover keyboard and pen are sold separately. Cellular options will arrive at a later date.

As the latest in Microsoft's 2-in-1 lineup, the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 feels like a next-gen device. Its exceptional display quality makes watching videos a delight. The powerful CPU ensures you won’t experience significant slowdown when browsing the web, video chatting, or performing other everyday tasks. Windows 11 also feels like it was tailor-made for the device. Gaming on the Surface 8 Pro leaves much to be desired, and the battery life doesn’t last as long as Microsoft claims. The Surface Slim Pen 2 and Surface Pro accessories pair brilliantly with the device but you have to spend additional money for them. While not perfect, the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 is a solid 2-in-1 Windows 11 tablet that's a satisfying upgrade over the Surface Pro 7.

70% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 review: A superior tablet with baffling quirks
Source: PC World English
All of this presents a question: how well do we know the Surface Pro 8? From a hardware perspective, quite well: we can certainly see the value of the larger, superior display, and the tablet's audio sounds great, too. Sure, the webcam appears to need a little work, but that's a tweak it should be able to implement quickly. The question that we can't answer is whether or not we're seeing a discrepancy in our particular benchmark software, or a driver issue, or Windows 11. Is the performance and battery life really this bad? We suspect not, but we can't say that for certain, either. We love what Microsoft has set out to do with the Surface Pro 8, but we'd be remiss if we recommended the tablet based on our findings right now.

The Surface Pro 8 is the biggest change to the Surface Pro lineup in years, bringing some design improvements we've been begging for along with much improved performance as well. It's still very much recognizable as part of Microsoft's core line of Windows tablets, but it truly feels like a new generation – just in time for the launch of Windows 11. The Surface Pro 8 is the best new Surface in years, with an all-new design and faster internals than ever. However, the higher price is going to get in the way for some.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 isn’t a quantum leap forward from its predecessors. Still, it makes enough crucial upgrades to an already excellent 2-in-1 tablet to once again put it among the top 2-in-1 laptops. The added screen size and reduced bezels make for a more modern look, while the rounded edges give it a much more tablet-friendly feel backed up by some of the new software touches in Windows 11. For creatives or prolific note-takers, the new Slim Pen 2 combined with the Type Cover gives you a built-in stylus with a tactile feel that makes for an improved inking experience. A bit more battery life would have been outstanding and the price jump may be hard for some to swallow. However, taken as a whole, the Surface Pro 8 is a solid addition to the Surface lineup and a compelling option for those looking to upgrade their laptop for the move to Windows 11.

While the Surface Pro 8 doesn't revolutionize the Pro line to its core, it does deliver the most meaningful update to the product in years. The new design is more aesthetically pleasing, along with the more concrete, practical advantage of a larger display. All-around performance is solid, at least in our Core i7 configuration, especially when you consider thermal challenges in a build this size. That said, both the starting price and the configuration-uptick options are up there, so the Pro 8 doesn't offer the absolute most bang for your buck versus a more traditional laptop with nearly the same specs. Some premium clamshell models with close-size screens, like the classic Dell XPS 13 and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9, price out similarly. (The big price boosters, in their cases, are the options for higher-than-1080p touch screens.) But you can also find well-outfitted models with better specs for around the same price. We priced out another Intel Evo contender: the $1,799 MSI Summit Flip E13, for example, with 32GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD...but with a 1,920 by 1,200 touch screen.

85% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 review: A better but pricier hybrid
Source: Engadget English
The Surface Pro is incrementally better in its eighth generation, with a fast-refreshing screen, much-requested Thunderbolt 4 support and a return to long battery life. But it’s also more expensive than ever, with a $350 higher starting price that effectively wipes out any price advantage it once had over premium ultraportable laptops. The pricier the Surface Pro gets, the more caveats I have to append to my recommendation. The pen-on-tablet experience is lovely, but the most persuasive reason for me to recommend the Surface Pro is the 120Hz display. It truly makes a difference in everyday use. Microsoft needs to do a better job communicating the benefits to would-be buyers, though. I understand why it’s disabled out of the box (battery life, duh), but how will average users find it if they’re not in the know? And as of this writing, the 120Hz refresh rate doesn’t get a prominent mention on Microsoft’s product page. Meanwhile, as good as the typing experience and battery life are, they’re not necessarily superior to a comparably priced notebook.

85% Microsoft Surface Pro 8 Review: The Best Of Both Worlds
Source: The Verge English
Of course, the flip side of all this is that the Surface Pro isn’t cheap, even for what it offers. Models start at $1,099 — but that’s going to be $1,279 with the keyboard cover, and $1,379 with the Slim Pen 2. I also don’t expect too many people to buy that base model, which only has 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM — my test model, which has a faster processor, twice the RAM, and 256GB storage, nets $1,879 with the keyboard and stylus, is going to be more reasonable for many workloads. You can get any number of regular clamshell laptops with its specs for a few hundred dollars less, including the MacBook Pro and the Dell XPS 13. That doesn’t make the Surface Pro 8 a bad device. It just makes it a somewhat specific device. It’s really targeting enthusiasts for the Surface Pro form factor — people who need the most performance in the thinnest and lightest chassis possible. In the past, those people haven’t quite had a device that met all of their needs. For the past two years, you’ve had to compromise on performance to get a Windows tablet that looked this cool.

Hands on: Surface Pro 8 review
Source: Techradar English
We were expecting the Surface Pro 8 to be the most predictable and boring entry in Microsoft's 2021 Surface lineup, but we were pleasantly surprised. Microsoft has brought a lot of improvements that we were asking for, along with a much-needed boost to its internal components. That does come with a higher price tag, however, which will be a tough pill to swallow for some. It's going to be interesting to see it side-by-side against the iPad Pro with an M1, because that's going to be its toughest competition. Either way, though, it should still be a compelling product for artists that are more comfortable on a Windows platform.

Hands on: The Surface Pro 8 is the first major redesign of a Surface Pro since 2014
Source: XDA Developers English
When we talk about going hands on with the Surface Pro 8, there’s not that much to say. After all, it’s mostly a redesign, and this new design has been seen on the Surface Pro X. Other features, such as removable storage, Intel 11th-gen processors, and 4G LTE have been seen on the Surface Pro 7+. But this design finally modernizes the Intel-powered Surface Pro lineup. Seriously, if you looked at a Surface Pro 7 in a store and saw it sitting next to competing devices, you’d think that it was made in 2015. Of course, that’s because it essentially was. The dimensions haven’t changed in any meaningful way since the Surface Pro 4. This is the next generation of Surface, and it’s a lot sexier.

Comment

Model:

The latest to join the Microsoft family is the Microsoft Surface Pro 8. Microsoft has finally taken the aging design of the Surface Pro line-up and completely modernized it with this latest model. This is the biggest change which has been seen on this flagship device in years, rolling out some long-overdue design improvements like thinner bezels, rounded edges, and the inclusion of the Thunderbolt 4. In terms of its design, the Surface Pro 8 brings some much-needed design improvements to the table. The easiest one to notice has to be the new graphite colour, which definitely looks incredible. While it may seem like Microsoft has been focusing on lighter shades for its devices in recent years, the darker colours with this year's line-up looks awesome.

Apart from that, the chassis is also refined, with more rounded edges, that seem much more comfortable to be held for longer periods of time, rather than the flat sides with sharper corners. In addition, the bezels are also smaller, and this is that final thing that makes the Surface Pro 8 look like an all-new device, rather than a relic from the early 2010s. This is because this feature makes the screen look so much bigger, and makes the device look more premium than ever, which is definitely a good thing.

As for its display, the Surface Pro 8 has been incorporated with a 13-inch PixelSense display with a resolution of 2,880 x 1,920. Well, the thing that makes this display even better is that along with the bigger size, it also has a 120Hz refresh rate. While it is definitely not a gaming device, even for everyday computing, this is a great feature to rely on. It is worth mentioning that the display is configured to 60Hz out of the box, mainly in the interest of boosting battery life, but it can be enabled at any time by going into the display settings. Overall, the Surface Pro 8’s display hits 103% of the sRGB spectrum and has a peak brightness of 467 nits, which makes it an incredibly gorgeous display.

In terms of its battery, the Surface Pro 8 knocks comes in with 8 hours and 15 minutes lifespan, making this a device that can be totally used to work all day without needing a charger. As for its performance, this device has been equipped with the Intel Core i7-1185G7 processor paired with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The GPU for this model is Intel Iris Xe Graphics. Apart from that, this laptop too has a great 1080p webcam and microphone which would be a great feature for zoom calls. This is definitely a feature needed in this work-from-home era. In a nutshell, it is a great device to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.

Series:

Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) is the fifth generation in the Surface Pro family. The Surface Pro is solid as a rock and exudes a sense of futuristic quality. It’s also well-designed, with a look and feels that, while minimally changed from the Surface Pro 4, is still an improvement. The corners are more rounded, and the exhaust vents along the edges are less pronounced.  There aren’t many moving parts in the Surface Pro itself. The power and volume buttons along the top are easy to find by feel, and have a crisp action, while the kickstand is smooth and reliably holds the tablet at chosen angle. It now opens up to 165 degrees, an increase from the Surface Pro 4, which opened 150 degrees. Fully flexed, the kickstand can turn Surface Pro into a nearly-flat slate. If a user decides to flip into tablet mode for a moment and fold back the Type Cover, the keyboard will turn off when the cover is tucked back. It can even switch Windows 10 into tablet mode if desired. It attaches to the tablet with strong magnets and connects via a physical port, meaning there’s zero lag when typing. The Surface Pro sports two front-firing speakers on each side of the display. There are small cutouts in the glass to let the sound through, and the design provides impressive sound for a tablet. Music is great, with surprising range, and there’s even a hint of bass. The speakers also get surprisingly loud and can fill a decent sized room without distorting.

The Surface Pro features up to a seventh-generation Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD. It is seen that the Surface Pro offers a cutting-edge CPU, solid RAM and SSD options, and full support for all of Microsoft’s most innovative Windows 10 technologies. All that will keep the machine relevant for years to come. The Surface Pro is refreshingly light on bloatware. While it’s stocked with the usual Microsoft Windows 10 apps and a handful of casual games, it’s otherwise unencumbered with junk software. The Surface utility is also a nice app that offers the ability to configure the Surface Pen and get some useful information about your machine. Microsoft is using a 45-watt-hour battery in the Surface Pro, which is an increase from the 38 watt-hour battery that was packed into the Surface Pro 4. The Surface Pro also uses more efficient seventh-generation Intel Core processors. Taken together, the new model offers improved battery life over its predecessor. The Surface Pro is eminently portable, at 0.33 inches thick and 1.73 pounds. Even with the Signature Type Cover attached, the machine is easy to carry around and slip into a bag. It might not be quite as thin and light as the iPad Pro, but it’s also a much more powerful machine that can run real PC applications. The Surface Pro bring a whole new meaning to the word tablet. It is a iPad like device but is actually a real computer.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Microsoft:

Microsoft smartphones and tablets have been tested since 2012. There are many reviews with average ratings. The reader's interest is quite given, but the market share is not big enough for the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers (as of 2016).


84.14%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
