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.

Cons
  • Mediocre battery life
  • Type Cover is an additional $130
