  • Underpowered for designers

Bottom Line

The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 CR5-00001 offers a great performance for its compact size, but you will have to purchase the keyboard separately and the 4GB of RAM hurt its overall performance with heavy multitasking.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 CR5-00001 is a bestselling 2-in-1 laptop that has been praised for its lightweight design, its brilliant display and for its great battery life. But the Surface Pro 4 CR5-00001 is more suited for basic tasks as the 4GB of RAM will struggle with more intensive multitasking. Microsoft still does not include the keyboard as a default accessory and you will have to purchase it separately. But the crisp high resolution display makes reading online articles, streaming media and working in Office a breeze. Users have reported average battery life of between 7 and 9 hours, making the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 CR5-00001 great for users constantly on the go.

Critic Reviews

  • 85 June 10, 2016

    After years of development and millions of advertising dollars spent to convince us that a tablet could plausibly replace a laptop, Microsoft finally delivered the goods with the Surface Pro 4. Equipped with robust processing power, a perfectly sized display and just-right aspect ratio, and a few critical add-on accessories, the Pro 4 solidified the Surface's position as the gold standard for Windows tablets. And with the arrival of Windows 10 in July 2015, that which blemished all previous Surface models -- an inelegant operating system -- was finally replaced by a solid OS that could fulfill the potential of its form factor.

    The Surface Pro 4 is Microsoft's latest high-end tablet/laptop hybrid. Its incredible desirable design and powerful hardware still, more than a year on, make it one of the most desirable devices on the market today.
