Microsoft Surface Pro 4 vs. Apple iPad Pro: Both are great, though Pro 4 has massive edge

Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 has impressed almost everyone. The fourth generation tablet from Microsoft has been receiving accolades from critics and tablet mavens alike.

There is no denying the fact even Microsoft Surface Pro’s previous version was a great machine and had been praised by everyone. Nonetheless the latest iteration is not just an impressive improvement over the previous version, it is also a tablet that has no competition at all in the market at the moment.

There is no denying the fact that the sort of improvement that Redmond based company has made in the new tablet makes it a darling of enterprises. With the launch of the gleaming tablet from Microsoft, things don’t seem to be the same with Apple’s iPad Pro.

surface-pro-4 imageMicrosoft has been making steady improvements with its hardware. There is no denying the fact that it was the previous iteration of the Surface Pro 4 that established the Redmond based tech giant as a threat to Apple’s iPad tablets. The latest tablet from the company is all set to make a truly market leader.

There is no denying the fact that all the reviewers are full of praise for this impressive machine. TechRadar is all praise for Surface Pro 4. “Has Microsoft at last crafted a tablet that can reasonably, without considerable compromise, replace your laptop? Short of going back to the drawing board on the battery, this looks as close as it’s going to get,” the review says.

Others too are not shying away from praising the tablet from Redmond. A report in the Digital Trends says, “The Surface Pro 4 is a microcosm of the change Microsoft is trying to spur inside its own walls. Time and time again, it missed the opportunity to leap on a new trend in consumer technology. But not with Surface. This time, Microsoft is a leader. It’s setting the trend. And unlike its new competitors, it’s had a few years to work out the kinks.”

In the meantime Apple’s iPad Pro is also getting praise from everyone. Nonetheless it is not in the same league as Surface Pro 4. Walt Mossberg of the Verge has this to say “You’d think an iPad guy like me would be over the moon about the iPad Pro, despite its hefty base price of $799 for a Wi-Fi-only model with 32GB of memory, which stretches to $949 with 128GB of memory, and soars past $1,000 with cellular capability. But I’m not.”surface-pro-4 image

Another top tech writer David Pierce, of Wired says, “For those of us who still cling to laptops and desktops, the iPad Pro just doesn’t feel like a serious machine for serious work. We need our keyboard shortcuts and our mice, our apps that work just how we like them. We need our accessories. A touch-first interface just doesn’t feel right, and the iPad Pro can’t overthrow our existing workflows and tools”.

iPad Pro is much better than all other tablets from the Cupertino based tech giant but it is still not a match for Surface pro. The 13-inch MacBook Air features a screen with 1,440 x 1900 pixel resolution, an innovation five years ago, but not now. The 12.3-inch Surface Pro 4 is ahead of the competition with 2,736 x 1,824 screen pixel resolution. Even the 13.5-inch Surface Book has 3,000 x 2,000 pixel resolution screen. As per IGN, the Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book are also better in overall performance. In a Tech Radar review, which presented the Surface Book four-and-a-half stars, the Surface Book’s greatest strength was described as being “an all-around terrific device.” It’s bigger storage option of 128GB to 1TB and a 4GB RAM upgradable to 16GB certainly gives it an edge as compared to the current MacBook Air, which has only 128GB or 256GB memory and 4GB RAM.
