The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is a clear winner in our opinion.  In business, we personally prefer Microsoft products over Apple and Android.  Microsoft is time tested and secure!  For the first time, one can have a truly experience working from a desktop and then going mobile and having access to all of the information available at your desktop.  Windows based means there is no new learning of an operating system.  The device itself, is absolutely beautiful.  Lightweight and Fast!  Solid State Drives make things blazing!  If your deciding between a laptop and /or a tablet - get the Surface Pro 4.  It does both... beautifully! *NOTE - The Surface DOES NOT come with a Free Keyboard.

Pros

  • 30 days in and very satisfied. Worked perfectly out of the box.
  • Quick and quiet and as powerful as I needed!
  • I love this ..Best of both worlds computer and tablet... I have have no issues with this - Michele
  • This is a great laptop replacement. If has surpassed my expectations. This is a great machine to use as a drawing tablet. The best part of it is that it runs full versions of windows and subsequently Adobe Creative Cloud Products. - Emilio
  • Fabulous machine. Quick, powerful, versatile. Moved up to Surface from Android based tablets and never looked back.
  • The Basic Machine (Intel Core M, 4GB RAM, 128GB) is about $700

Cons

  • The pen that comes with the tablet would keep cutting in and out of connection with the tablet ruining the experience that I had with the tablet, also I couldn't run virtual machines on the i7 version. - Sahill
  • Windows 10 starts fast but sometimes as much 30 seconds to login is much worse than always less than a second which is iPad experience
  • Keyboard IS NOT INCLUDED... there's no point in buying this device without it
  • Battery Life is about 4 hours vs about 10 hours with iPad or Other Tablet
  • You cannot use ANY programs that are not enhanced for the high resolution required on the Surface Pro. So any old programs you have will not work well at all. You have to purchase new!
  • To upgrade to the best processor i7, 1TB of Storage will run you close to $2,000
