Microsoft will once again showcase to the world its prowess in the art of manufacturing tech gadgets, as its next-gen Surface devices are going to be out in the very near future. With this, an in-depth comparison review between its current Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 is an end endeavor worth taking.
Surface Book Vs Surface Pro 4: Display
Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 features a 12.3-inch screen display, while the Surface Book sports a 13.5 screen display, much larger than the Pro 4. The Surface Book gains the upper hand with this one thanks to the higher resolution that it has, which syncs perfectly with its 13.5-inch display.
Surface Book Vs Surface Pro 4: Processing Prowess
The Surface Book wins the processing speed battle thanks to its NVIDIA GeForce GPU that matches its Skylake processor perfectly. The Surface 4 Pro also has a comparable Skylake processor, but it still lacks the needed NVIDIA GPU to take things to the next level.
Surface Book Vs Surface Pro 4: Storage
For this, the Surface Book and the Surface Pro 4 are literally equal as Microsoft opted to put similar internal storages on both devices. A 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and a gargantuan 1TB option are available for the Surface Book and the Surface Pro 4.
Surface Book Vs Surface Pro 4: Connectivity
The Surface Book wins this field as it offers more connectivity options. It features full sized USB 3.0 ports as well as its own SD card slot. The two devices have two USB 3.0 ports each, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a microSD slot as well as a Mini Display Port.
Surface Book Vs Surface Pro 4: Input Methods
One of the main differences that the two Microsoft devices have is that the Surface Pro 4 has an optional keyboard, while the Surface Book is shipped with a readily detachable keyboard. This makes the two on par with this category, but obviously, a ready keyboard is always a better option.
Surface Pro 4 users also have the freedom to purchase a separate Touch Cover Keyboard. What makes this a good thing is that the Touch Cover Keyboard has undergone major improvements when compared to previous models.
