Microsoft Surface Pro 128 GB is one of the latest smart products that run on Windows 8. This device, in its tablet form, was launched to evolve the world of mobile computing – and it does offer genuine computing power.
Although its product description says it is a tablet, the Microsoft Surface Pro 128 could also be called a “tiny ultra-book” due to its powerful hardware and built-in keyboard. Due to these features, however, its package isn't as portable as it was supposed to be. Fighting with iPad and Nexus 10 in terms of its thinness and lightness, this tablet is on the bulkier edge and counts with only a moderately good battery life. On the other hand, it has a number of features in its overall design that can make it a more attractive option than both these major rivals for the right costumer.
Microsoft Surface Pro appears to be a different and somewhat of a hybrid device. It comes with a design that gives the appearance of a tablet – and it can be used pretty successfully just like that, due to the great touchscreen support offered by Windows 8. Moreover, it could also replace one's current ultrabook or even Macbook Air due to the raw processing power of its components. This flexibility is one of the biggest drawings of the product. In comparison to its predecessor, it is actually lighter in weight and smaller in dimensions. When compared to traditional tablet models, however, it still comes across as big and heavy. If you use a kick stand and involve yourself in a touch-and-type feature, it will actually appear like a tiny laptop on the go.
The product comes with Core i5 processor, which is actually quite a lot for a technical user, and yet is marketed as a tablet. It has near silent fans that work to reduce heat and work perfectly well. Also, it comes with an aesthetic appeal that will make you forget that it weights almost a kilogram. The typing keyboard clicks and provides a nostalgic feeling of using a computer – a feature that will be most-welcome by those who don’t get along with digital keyboards. A minor flaw in its external design is the gap between the back and top of the body, which appears to be for air flow and does not add to the visual appeal of this product.
Microsoft Surface Pro 128 GB offers a screen resolution of 1920x1080 pixels which work well on its 10.6 inch screen. The screen is decent for a tablet and offers good viewing angles from the side, but since it is pretty reflective, you might find it difficult to use in sunlight. This Pro comes with 128 GB of memory of which 83 GB is usable. It also supports USB 3.0 and can be an excellent external drive. When it comes to performance, the product offers the average performance of a high end ultra-book. Battery life is decent and it comes with 42 watt hour battery that lasts for at least 5 hours on video run down test. It also comes with a pen for drawing and writing input. If you are looking for a decent product that can transform itself into an ultra-book from a tablet, then this is the product for you.
