While I was on hiatus Microsoft announced the availability of the Surface Pro 4 tablet and Surface Book. Although the devices have been available for a few weeks now, I though I’d go over some reasons why I would buy the Surface Pro 4 instead of the iPad Pro.
3 Reasons to Buy a Microsoft Surface Pro 4
1. Price. Although the entry point for the Surface Pro 4 may seem steep, when you compare it to the Apple iPad Pro, it’s a steal. It’s $100 more than the entry-level iPad Pro and cheaper than the premium model.
2. Flexibility. Unlike the iPad Pro, the Surface Pro 4 has a USB port. This makes it easy for you to attache external storage and other accessories without the need to buy and adapter that’s going to increase the cost of your device.
3. It’s a computer, not a tablet. Unlike the iPad Pro the Surface Pro 4 has a fully functional operating system. That means when you hook it up to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse it behaves like a desktop computer.
I don’t have any plans to buy a Surface Pro 4 in the future. However, if someone were to offer to buy me either the iPad Pro or the Surface Pro 4 I’d ask for the Surface without batting an eye.
