Hands-on with Microsoft's new Surface Pro 4

Sarah K. White | Nov. 16, 2015
Microsoft has wanted consumers and enterprises to ditch traditional notebooks for the Surface tablets since 2012. And with the Surface Pro 4 that might finally be a realistic goal.

Can it replace your notebook?

In the past, I've been hesitant to recommend Surface devices as a notebook-replacement, but the Surface Pro 4 has changed that entirely. The only issue, as with every past device, is the lack of stability when using it on your lap thanks to the kickstand and type cover. If you need to lean forward or shift the device, it does require a little more configuration and attention than a traditional notebook, but it's certainly not significant enough to write this device off as a notebook replacement. The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is a solid combination of portability, style and performance, and if you decide to use it as your notebook, whether for work or personal use, you won't be disappointed.
