Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 review: still the best Windows laptop/tablet hybrid, but who is it for?

 

Surface Pro 5 is the best laptop replacement tablet a creative could wish for, but most users would be better off with a Surface Laptop

Superb screen ; Good battery life ; Undeniably versatile

Expensive at higher specs ; Keyboard costs extra and is poor ; Stylus costs extra again, although it is, admittedly, excellent

Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) review

 

Meet the new Surface Pro, same as the old Surface Pro. But a little bit better

Masses of power ; A joy to type on ; Wonderful screen ; Great battery life

Too pricey for the top-spec models ; Lack of ports may frustrate some

The refreshed Surface is an evolution rather than an entirely new lifeform, but it remains the class leader

Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) review

 

Is the Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) worth your money in the shadow of the Surface Pro 6? Read our Microsoft Surface Pro 5 (2017) review to find out.

Hugely improved battery life Much better Surface Pen Comfier, punchier Type Cover

Surface Pen pulled from package Only Core i7 can challenge A10X

We’re confused as to why Microsoft didn’t give this the Surface Pro 5 moniker, since it only received the largest improvement on a Surface we’ve seen so far. Despite losing the included Surface Pen, the Microsoft Surface Pro 2017’s massive leap forward...

Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) Review: In Depth

 

Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 review: After nearly 2 years Microsoft is returning to the form factor that defined the Surface line with the 2017 Surface Pro.

Excellent software compatibility ; Powerful hardware ; Stunning screen ; Versatile design

Type Cover/Surface Pen cost extra ; Heavy for handheld use ; Lacking in ports

The iterative nature of the 2017 Surface Pro doesn’t detract from the fact that this is an excellent 2-in-1 and a worthy update on 2015’s Surface Pro 4. The machine itself certainly feels like five-star material, with some of the most refined design...

Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) review

 

It's like trying to pick a suspect out of a police lineup of identical twins. Take 2015's Surface Pro 4 and the long-awaited new version just called Surface Pro, and stick them side by side on a table. Now, go and grab the new one. Like me, you might...

The Surface Pro gets better performance and battery life from its CPU update, and most models are now fanless. The excellent kickstand is even more flexible.

Minimal redesign leaves out USB-C and Thunderbolt options. The Surface Pen stylus is no longer included by default, and new keyboard covers are more expensive than ever. Still not great for lap use.

Microsoft's flagship Surface Pro gets an extremely conservative update, but better battery life keeps it the gold standard of Windows hybrid PCs -- for now.

Microsoft Surface Pro i5 (2017) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The mid-range Microsoft Surface Pro packs in plenty of tech, with an Intel i5 processor and 8GB of Ram, which should make it a fast tablet, capable of competing with many laptops. Is Microsoft's device the definitive way to experience Windows 10 on a...

Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) review: Great machine, but less relevant than ever

 

The latest iteration of the Surface Pro performs as it should, but is lacking that killer feature
