    Engadget Review

    The Surface Pro 4 builds on the best parts of the Surface Pro 3, and it finally delivers a solid typing experience with the revamped Type Cover (which is unfortunately sold separately). It's the ideal hybrid tablet in practically every way -- it's as light as a tablet, but as productive as any laptop. The only problem is you're stuck with so-so battery life.

    Pros
    • Works well as both a tablet and a laptop
    • New Type Cover and Surface Pen are massive improvements
    • Still pretty thin and light for the equivalent of an ultraportable
    Cons
    • Mediocre battery life
    • Type Cover is an additional $130
