If you had your eye on the Surface Pro 4, but wanted something a little less Microsoft-branded, Samsung's got an alternative just for you. The company's Galaxy TabPro S is available to order in the US and UK as of today for $899 and £849, respectively. Originally unveiled at CES in January, the hybrid Windows 10 tablet packs a 12-inch Super AMOLED display (2,160 x 1,440) into a lightweight, magnesium alloy frame. It's certainly a more premium build than Samsung's typically known for, as we noted when we first set eyes (and hands) on the device earlier this year.

For the money, you get an Intel 6th generation dual-core Core M clocked at 2.2GHz, 4GB RAM and a 128GB solid state drive. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be an option on either online store to beef storage up to 256GB nor is there an available LTE model (that's still TBD), meaning it's WiFi-only for now. Powering the entire affair is a 5,200mAh battery rated for over ten hours that you'll have to recharge using the slate's USB Type-C port. Oh, and it comes with a pack-in keyboard so you're at least spared that extra expense. We'll have a review coming soon, so stay tuned and try to hold off on that impulse purchase.
