Tablets are great when all you want to do is lay in bed and watch Netflix all day. Laptops are what you need when you want to write a long e-mail to your boss or do some serious design work. The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 offers the best of both worlds. As a tablet, it stands with the best of them with its stunning 12.3-inch screen, sleek all-metal body and impressive nine-hour battery life. Need to get work done?
Connect the Surface Pro 4 to its keyboard cover (which is sadly a separate purchase) and it transforms into a laptop. But what truly sets it apart from Apple and Android tablets is its ability to run full-blown professional apps like Photoshop and Premiere Pro, making this a productivity powerhouse. Looking for that one device to rule them all? The Surface Pro 4 is as close as it gets.
