Review from TechRadar: With Microsoft so bullish on perfecting its vision of the tablet takeover, you better believe that the firm would stack it up against the inspiration for Ultrabooks, Apple's MacBook Air, yet again. (Though, Microsoft seems to have dropped the iPad comparison altogether this time around.) And unsurprisingly, as far as dimensions are concerned, the Surface Pro 4 is indeed more portable than the 13-inch MacBook Air, if only due to its smaller screen. Microsoft's slate comes in at 11.5 x 7.93 x 0.33 inches (W x D x H), or 292.10 x 201.42 x 8.4mm, meanwhile Apple's leading laptop measures 11.8 x 7.56 x 0.68 inches (32.5 x 22.7 x 1.7cm). Naturally, the Surface Pro 4's 1.73 pounds (786g) is far lighter than the 2.96-pound (1.35kg) MacBook Air's weight on your back. Now, how about how Microsoft's latest measures up against one of the best 2-in-1 laptops since, well, the Surface Pro 3? The 13.3-inch HP Spectre x360 measures a way beefier 12.79 x 8.6 x 0.63 inches (32.4 x 21.8 x 1.6cm) and weighs 3.26 pounds (1.47 kg). It's just one of the cons with hybrids that go into it laptop-first. Microsoft Surface Pro 4 review Now, let's see whether Surface Pro 4 can still play ball when it comes to value. Here's the Surface Pro 4 configuration that Microsoft provided techradar for review: Spec sheet CPU: 2.4GHz Intel Core i5-6300U (dual-core, 3MB cache, up to 3GHz with Turbo Boost) Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 520 RAM: 8GB LPDDR3 Screen: 12.3-inch, 2,736 x 1,824 PixelSense display (Contrast ratio: 1,300:1, 100% sRGB color, 10-point multi-touch, 3:2 aspect ratio) Storage: 256GB SSD (PCIe 3.0) Ports: 1x USB 3.0, mini DisplayPort, microSD card reader (UHS-I), headphone/mic jack Connectivity: 802.11ac Wi-Fi (2 x 2 MIMO), Bluetooth 4.0 (Low Energy) Cameras: 8MP rear-facing, auto-focus camera (1080p HD); 5MP front-facing, 1080p HD camera Weight: 1.73 pounds Size: 11.5 x 7.93 x 0.36 inches (W x D x H) What you see here is the slightly-higher-than-mid-range version of the Surface Pro 4, which will set you back a cool $1,299 (£1,079, AU$1,999) – and that's before picking up a $129 (£109, AU$199) Type Cover. That said, it would be smart to go with either this model or the one just below it, with the same Core i5 and half the RAM and storage, for $999 (£849, AU$1,499). The entry-level Surface Pro 4 comes housing an Intel Core m3 processor, rather than the undoubtedly snappier, updated Intel Core i3 (it ran Haswell-generation Core i3 last year), and the same amount of storage and memory. Plus, at $899 (£749, AU$1,349), asks for $100 more than the baseline Pro 3 did at launch. Frankly, it's not a great value, and – oddly enough – Microsoft hides the option to purchase the Core m3 version outright behind a "Configure Your Device" button on its US web store. But what about the Apple's notebook? For the same price as the Surface Pro 4 configuration listed out above, you could get a 13-inch MacBook Air with a dual-core, 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor with Intel HD Graphics 6000, 128GB of PCIe flash storage and 8GB of RAM. Microsoft Surface Pro 4 review It's by no means an apples to apples comparison, of course. The Pro 4 has a 12.3-inch, Retina-rivaling touchscreen, while the MacBook Air has a barely HD, 13.3-inch touch-free screen. Apple's laptop offers more ports and longer battery life, while Microsoft's tablet comes with a stylus and rivals most Ultrabooks once its Type Cover is attached. I could go on. Now, the Spectre x360 makes for an easier comparison, and on paper does seem to stretch your dollar a lot further. For the same price as the Surface Pro 4 unit in question, you could buy HP's leading Ultrabook complete with a current, dual-core Intel Core i7 chip – not i5 – with Intel HD Graphics 520. This package matches the Surface for RAM and storage, meanwhile tripling its USB ports and claiming to last two hours longer on a charge. Then again, it's thicker, it's heavier and is by no means could or should it be a tablet replacement in the way that the Surface Pro 4 can be a laptop replacement. As it turns out, the Surface Pro line still has so few, if any, worthy direct comparisons. Microsoft Surface Pro 4 review So, is the Surface Pro 4 worthy of opening your wallet? That's a more difficult question to answer, because – from the new keyboard cover to the stylus improvements – everything that you can't quantify about the device is exactly what makes it so worthwhile.
