Microsoft is Taking a Bite Out of “the Apple”

Michael Bakshandeh, Technology Editor

Watch out iPad Pro! Microsoft’s latest creation, the Surface Pro 4, is the newest player in the tablet game. There are many cool features in the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is so versatile that it could replace your laptop. The Surface Pro 4 runs a full desktop OS in Windows 10 in a tablet size. This is different from the iPad Pro, which runs an abbreviated iOS software on it. Therefore, for its versatility alone, the Surface Pro is a better choice for a tablet.

However, the benefits don’t stop here. The Surface Pro also has a razor-sharp screen, a fantastic cooling system, an excellent performance, and more than 10 hours of battery life. Probably one of the best features of the new Surface Pro is that after teaching Windows 10 to recognize the user (just by staring at the screen for 20 seconds or so during initial setup), the Surface Pro 4 will automatically log in the user. This log-in method virtually eliminates the need for hard-to-remember passwords, annoying PINs, and even Touch ID. The Surface Pro’s awesome screen is the result of its 12.3” PixelSense display which has extremely high contrast and very little glare. The Surface Pro 4 also features a USB 3.0 port, a microSD card reader, and a MiniDisplay port. The user can hook up a mouse, a keyboard, or external storage without any problems. The Surface Pro 4 with 6th Generation Intel Core m3, i5, and i7 processors makes it extremely powerful, making the usability phenomenal. You might think that it’s ironic that the Surface Pro 4 is more powerful than ever at a mere 1.69 pounds, but it’s true!

Every Surface Pro 4 comes with a Surface Pen Stylus which can be attached to an edge of the tablet for added convenience. It has a kickstand that can be put in many positions and it has an improved Type Cover. The camera has been updated as well. Only the Surface Pro 4 can boast video conference in HD with the 5MP front-facing camera and 8MP autofocus rear-facing camera that takes superb pictures. The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is taking a huge bite of Apple and the consumers are reaping the benefits!
