More and more uncertainties are changed for insights when Microsoft updates their tablet.
Microsoft Surface-series has, apart from the RT-variants (which more was the entire operating system error rather than the hardware) has always been an interesting story. Although the first generation Surface today look hopelessly outdated out meant still something new when it came. That Microsoft really, really, want to do right in the premium segments of tablets running Windows as they are reasonably alone has appeared, not least on the design. The differences between Surface one, two and three are dramatic to say the least.
Precisely because it feels like Microsoft has been warm in the clothes and found the shape with the Surface 4. The look is more or less identical to the third version, although it’s been scaled some millimeters here and there and the screen has become a bit larger. In fact, it is so like the precursor to both docking station keyboard fit both models.
Just as before, it is about a gray machine in magnesium that actually leaves little to be desired in terms of design. The design can hardly be called clean, but at the same time include the reason all the time. The edges around the device are properly equipped with Displayport and USB connector along with other standard connectors. Here, we would have preferred more USB ports and maybe a USB port for future C-lite the fuse, however. The back is clean and neat in the starting position, and we fully understand that it does not look as clean when it is extended. Just like the previous models are of course an extendable set there, which can be set Steplessly from almost all types of landscape to portrait mode. Behind the place we find the Jack for the micro SD card. Here we had of course better yet seen a slot for regular SD cards to avoid having to fuss with adapters from cameras. At the same time seems all the tablets at least prefer micro SD instead of its full-sized ones, so it probably has more to do with an overall recommendation rather than design choice for this model.
Just that there are one of two things we love more and more the more we use it, and it keeps the plate remarkably steady regardless of location and after running Surface for a while, we become almost annoyed at those boards that do not have anything similar. The place has of course an excellent companion in the keyboard part sold as accessories (but that is almost a requirement that you buy into, so expect the extra 1500 Crowns when you shop Surface). Main news here is that it’s become a little firmer than the last, which is needed then this 2-in-1 construction of natural reasons aren’t as steady in one knee like a laptop. Experience on uneven surfaces is much better this time than in the past and we have, for the most part, no problems with stability during work.
On with the keyboard cover is a new and larger mouse pad belonging to one of the better we tested on Windows. We still do not understand exactly what Apple does with their touchpads that Microsoft and its partners can do, for it is still some way to go to the same precision and accuracy, especially when it comes to using multiple fingers.
An accessory that comes with the package is the pen, which is actually nice enough to use even if you are not a digital painting artist (which it of course works for also). To use it for some extra precision in the windows interface works really good and if you like One Note as note-taking program, there is a quick shortcut to the write section of the pen comes with a bunch of different tips, so you can experiment with what feels best. at the other end, you’ll find something so logical as an eraser works on screen. by using the pen button, you can not only launch One Note, but also bring a voice service Cortana or take a screen shot and finally, you can attach the pen on the side of the plate with a magnet. Even if the pen is not your main working tool, it actually really good in here, and gives really sensible Adders without feeling stuck.
Of course the Windows 10 we find pre-installed on the plate, which includes voice Assistant Cortana are included from the start. Then the Surface working as Microsoft’s variation on the Google Nexus-series and showcase the new features with WIndows is a little more advanced Web camera. It is used for facial recognition service Hello, which simply allows you to login using your face instead of code. It actually works far better than expected and it is just somewhere around one time out of ten as the login function and do not log sours us. Here it should be mentioned that there is also a variant of keyboard skin with fingerprint reader, but it is only released in the United States so far, but want more security capabilities, you can always hope that it will hit.
In the case of Microsoft Windows 10 found a lot more right in the combination of touch screen interface and traditional Windows. Much depends of course on that most parts of the horrendous Windows 8 interface removed, but still, now it feels actually reasonably well thought out.
When it comes to the plate, you get what you pay for. It is something that we normally use to excuse the budget machines, but it is also true here. All variations of Surface running on the same scale, build quality and the same features and included accessories. Here we can definitely mention your screen, that despite a rather unorthodox resolution is really good when it comes to blacks and colors.
What distinguishes all variations of Surface is instead processor (Intel Core i5 or i7), amount of RAM and the size of the hard drive. We may well find that the price tag runs off a little too fast when you start to look at the upgrades, but you see it as a premiumlaptop in the more mobile spectrum is hardly alone in this price class for the same hardware.
The version we tested was a little cross with half much storage and working memory and a i5 processor. Nevertheless, we should not say that we directly lacked performance right out of the box, without the machine passed by some half-baked game without fuss and most of it in the form of working software we threw at it (Photoshop and trackpad is, however, not recommended) without showing any major trends to become tired. Unless you do something intensely, but stick to Web surfing and Office jobs at lower screen brightness, you can almost run a full working day without getting nervous either.
Between two worlds
Surface pro 4 has grown into the role of standard bearer for the 2-in-1 system that lives in the borderland between tablets and laptops. It’s still a balancing act between the two segments, but it feels a bit like the borders become blurred some more here. A laptop is more stable on uneven surfaces, but few of them, on the other hand down in kilosstrecket, and thus a great portability. At the same time, Windows system for tablets which can hardly be called a mature, especially if you look at the amount of touch-enabled apps for the Ipad or Android tablets. At the same time, you don’t think about a balancing act between a machine apputbud for pleasure and relaxation and what you actually can do when it’s time to work because the trivialities that full applications, multitasking and the like were not even a question in the Windows world then type Windows 95.
As a premium machine is Surface 4. but at the same time, you also need to ask yourself the question if it’s double nature with the 2-in-1 device that you are looking for specifically. Do you have the money to spend on a computer, there are quite a few interesting options among ordinary laptops, and similarly in the other direction if you buy is hardly a pure tablet for its job opportunities (in Swedish: with Windows) but rather more for fun games and apps along with little slösurf. From that direction, it is possible to get significantly cheaper, so you may still consider a little if it’s just mellantinget you want. If you have made up your mind for just that, you can’t get much better than Surface 4.
Questions and answers
Has the 4 g?
No, you can use the dongle or wire via cell phone.
It will only in gray?
The plate well, but the keyboards are available in a plethora of colors.
It is not sold in packages with keyboard?
Nope, not by Microsoft themselves anyway. The ideal would have been at least one color combination was sold in packages, but Microsoft says it does not want to lock-in users on the way but would let them choose the color itself.
An alternative: Surface
Are you looking for something similar but may not have the wallet for it should you now do not have too big a problem finding the predecessor second-hand.
It is a Tablet as well, it works but is not to be used as vacation camera directly. However, the images are not to be ashamed of themselves.
