I got a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 last week – the plan being to replace my main computer and my tablet. It’s a great machine – essentially a tablet that works like a laptop. Its noticeably faster than the desktop it replaces. Using it as a tablet takes some getting used to – because it seems weird to have a tablet that is a full featured computer. For example, I have apps on my Android tablet that my first inclination is to get for the Surface – but then I realize that the app isn’t needed when you are using a computer.
The high resolution display makes things like Flipboard content, magazines and video look better than I’ve ever seen on a tablet or laptop.
The biggest headache has been getting the document management software we use at HP to work. It just isn’t designed to scale properly on a high resolution display, and took a lot of work by our IT department to make it useable. Unfortunately specialty software like that often lags behind current tech and operating systems.
