No point in living in the past
Nobody is living in the past - people are just aware that prices for items like this fluctuate all the time based on product life cycle, supply and demand etc - and would rather buy it at the bottom of a price fluctuation rather than at the top (unless they absolutely must have this item today).
When SP5 comes out in the Spring, the price on this is also definitely going to drop, so paying £700+ for an m3 with keyboard right now is unlikely to be represent best value.

Yea this essentially was my point but you didn't fully quote me (and I said it in less words).

Managed to pick one of these up from a mate a couple of days ago, was scared id got ripped off lol, really impressed as its the basic one from the lot but still real slick, pen is also really smooth, the i5 and i7 must be super fast lol
A double lol eh? The long winter evenings must just fly by in your household.
Yup especially with ya mrs to tuck me in ;)
Did you send me this after you'd sent me the private message calling me a stupid ****? Touched a nerve eh...?

I'm sure this was 599 not so long ago?
black friday
I got the i5 version WITH the keyboard cover for £599 on black Friday, this should be freezing cold.
I don't think this even includes the keyboard cover... really bad deal.
Are you sure? Cheapest I can find from Black Friday was 699 for the i5
Sorry just checked, it was £629 for the i5 & keyboard cover from the currys pcworld eBay shop, not £599.
Also, to the others, I only posted because for me at least it's useful to know previous prices/deals when looking for something.

I have one. Great little tool. Only drawback is the sticker on the blade is almost impossible to get off fully!


​I got one from poundland and the sticker fell off :D must admit amazing for cleaning most of the paint from rollers.

Pointless tool. Who scrapes paint off rollers? I don't. Just wrap in cling film to keep ready to use again for a max of 5 days. I then throw when done with it as like a new roller for best finish. Scraper is usefull I guess but not at this price. Never use nails always screws.. Not voting although I'm out.
I scrape paint off my expensive rollers. I find this shifts more than the round scrapers you push down the roller.


​I use the Hamilton Green 12 Inch rollers on a standard 9 inch cadge. Wrap in cling film at the end of the day. I used to spin them to clean and have put them through the washing machine.. Lol...can't be bothered now. New roller for final coat every time. To get excess paint out of sleeve if needed, just use your hand with latex glove on or a bit of cling film or plastic. You don't need a tool to do it. Plus the this item will need oil to stop it Rusting. I use there scrapers and they are brilliant buy boy do they rust

I have the 8gb Ram version of this as my primary work machine. I can work all day on battery (with the Windows 10 Battery Saver switched on towards the end of the day). Don't confused this offer with the poor M3 version. This has a proper processor.
I had the I3 version from Argos, the screen and quality are great but I had to return as the battery would only last for one movie. I then googled and found that it is a common problem. Great machine if you do not need to be away from a power supply.
Hasnt been in stock for me for the past few weeks
This is still a good deal, The crap version was £599 this is the i5. The only time it was cheaper on Christmas eve when the did a 10% off promo just for one day
Yes MS and other retailers had the m3 version with Pen and type cover for 599 before Xmas. New model expected soon.

Over £600 for a tablet with 4gb of Ram seems nuts, unless you only do 1 thing at a time & don't browse with many tabs open.
Not voting cold though - if 4gb is enough for your purposes and you want a surface pro 4, it may be the best price around.
Two points on the price, firstly, like an Apple product it will hold its value much better than an Asus, Lenovo etc. Therefore the cost of owning it over a few years could be less than another brand. Secondly, it's a quality product with great design and quality materials.

Yes, You are right.. I got one for 43. BUT, do you expect cheaper deals less than 43? I double it.
No £43 is cheapest ever seen, im just sure there will bill something better than this coming along.

You can buy from cex for £57.50 delivered, you may get lucky and get a new one but either way will have 2 year warranty for peace of mind

Why is this cold? 165 normal price. Been on amazon for 135 recently. This is a great discount


​43 on ao.com and 105 everywhere


​105 where?
Considering a genuine power supply costs £65, £114 for this is a really good price. It is deliberately made heavy with weights screwed in so that it sits firmly on a desk, these can be removed relatively easily, though likely will invalidate the warranty. The extra ports enable me to use my two desktop screens at home and ethernet enables me to quickly exchange my NAS data.

Basically, it allows a mobile device to ALSO act as an office desktop. Flexibility is really not a hard concept to grasp, though clearly it manages to escape some people on here...

This deal should have been very hot but is expired now anyway.

Seems a lot of money for some ports. Why not just buy a proper laptop?

Because I need a lightweight laptop, nothing comes close to the surface, but when I'm at home I need a gigabit network connection and a couple of extra USB ports, I did go down the usb to usb+ethernet hub, but don't like the idea of plugging in and out of the usb port all the time, I've seen too many fail over the years. The fact the dock connects via the magnetic power port, means it should last a lot longer.

Ok, so the dock is expensive, but it provides power + ethernet + usb hub + display ports, add them up and perhaps you're getting a bit closer to the cost of the dock. It's not worth £165 but certainly close to £100 it's not quite as obscene as Apple devices.

I have just receive a call from them telling me that they didn't get their money through paypal and they need to sort it out by paying again. I refused to do it on phone so they said they would cancel my order...
I managed to order one on Christmas eve when they where still in stock, had the email to say the order has been processed and that i should have it by the 3rd. This morning I got a call to say they're not in stock but they should have some soon, just no definite date, so no idea if it's coming or not!
Don't know if it's just me but ordered one of these yesterday. Got a phone call just now saying that there was no stock allocated or something like that so it's not going through.

everywhere we just had big drops on Surface Pro 4 stock and now the individual type covers, seems like a refresh Surface Pro 5 announcment is imminent, CES 2017 coming up next week
I would be amazed if the SP5 isn't compatible with the existing keyboards and the only rumour kicking about for it is a release might be linked to the Win10 anniversary update, which itself is rumoured to be Spring 2017.

Lots of nothing really. Personally I am hoping that they are lowering prices so it becomes more of a primetime product, rather than premium priced product. Perhaps capitalising on the underwhelming spec and overwhelming priced Macbook release.
Nice post op... HUKD will be my undoing!

Would this be recommended for a student? Writing HTML/Java/Word documents and things like that?

It would be fine for those tasks, and I can't imagine any student would be unhappy with it, mine (i5 + 8GB + 256GB SSD) was bought because I have to walk on average 10 miles a week walking with it, so weight and portability was key, and it is truly a lovely machine, it's MS outdoing Apple at their own game.

I would always recommend if you have the money, go for the 8GB + 256GB version, because this in my opinion hits the sweet spot for performance and longevity, but there's no logical reason 4GB + 128GB wouldn't be workable for all but the most demanding user, plus throw in a reasonable fast microsd card, and you can expand the capacity a bit more. You'll get those that say 16GB and an i7 is the minimum, but it's been a long time since normal activities stretched the average PC, hell when I first started developing on a PC, the minimum specification was a 640x480 screen, a 486 and RAM measured in MB, yet I still managed to develop software on it.

Good deal, if your not going to use for GPU performance then this is best bang for buck.
​otherwise purchase a Macbook if you require performance

If you want performance and are prepared to sacrifice touchscreens, high definition screens and perceived sex appeal, there are plenty of none Apple options available out there, most that would simply crucify a macbook in cost and performance, not to mention, you'd find all your printers, usb devices and pretty much anything you plug in to computer will work.

Price will be going down more as they are announcing SB2 and SP5 in Spring next year.

No one announce any dates yet. Surface pro 5 and surface phone will came 1st, then posibly book 2. It could be October 17 for sb2. I end up myself with book i5/256/8 dGPU (1295) for £1045 (sold xbox with fifa for 250). This deal is worse then i7 that was 1035 just week ago... You wouldn't see new models for such low price, and i dont belive they will be worth upgrading.

I know what you mean, I recently upgraded to a full spec i7 surface pro 3 refurbished for less than the entry-level sp4. can't fault it, haven't had a throttling problem and the fans not too bad either. I know the screen and the graphics aren't as good as the newer model but it does everything I need and brilliantly too.

Has this expired...price shows £1169 and the link doesn't work anymore? Gutted I missed this. Anyone been able to price match elsewhere?
I think offer ends today, ended up buying from microsoft store with quidco cash back, £33 for the xbox one and 8.8% for tablet, not quite as cheap but closest i could find, cash back tracked on both items at lower rate which was warned, will update to correct values once confirmed

Arrived today, seems nice machine but windows 10 updates taking forever

I bought a keyboard from cex for £55 did not come new in microsoft pacaking as listed above but was unmarked and working fine

Cool item but still way over-priced for the specs. Cold for that reason.

I received mine yesterday. Very pleased and we'll spended money. All cold voters here are just jealous that they can't afford this amazing laptop. touch screen experience on 3:2 13.2" screen as amazing, super responsive pen writing make my samsung note 4 shame... Build like a tank but light enough same time. I was about to buy surface pro 4 but after compared both in store pro 4 look like toy for teenagers... This is classy laptop for sure. I don't understand why is this one so cold and smaller, slower, worse look pro 4 got much hot then this... I don't understand this forum...
I ordered this, it is a brilliant deal and was fulfilled. Much better that a deal stays below the radar rather than greedy fools getting involved and screwing it up for others
Yeah, great deal. Much gratitude to disquatic the OP and bilbob re Xbox deal. Does anyone else's SB make continuous noises? Like disk loading noises. Might be coming from disk or screen, not sure.
Well, it doesn't have a drive with moving parts so must either be the fan, or the keyboard/screen locking device. I've not heard anything untoward from mine though just the fan when playing games but I'd be worried if the fan wasn't spinning up then!
My book is silent. Im super happy that I go for book instead of pro 4 with i7, typing is great, and i love 3:2 ratio screen. I cant imagine trying to touch icons etc on smaller screen then this... I bought it in store with 1tb xbox s with fifa, and sold xbox for 250 already! I also been given £20 gift card as paid 269 for xbox so they even compensate £20 I overpaid due to lack of 500gb stock.. Brilliant deal and seller.
Only thing I wish to have is kickstand or more firm hinge as screen wobble a bit when you touching screen. I found very good to use it on my lap using keyboard as kickstand, rotating keyboard 180 degree. Also chrome works more flawless then edge for me..
Yes I wish it had its own kickstand. I found it to wobble a fair bit when using on my lap too. MacBook was sturdier. My biggest annoyance though is fan noise even when I'm not doing anything much. Not sure why this is happening.
Got no noise at all. When i heavy load it then i can hear fans but its not too laud to complain. Have you tap mac book screen to compare? its no touch screen there.. i belive any screen this size would wobble a bit when touched. also there will not be option to flip keyboard 180° if they will put kickstand and i acculy like this position when having it on my lap or drawing.. its act like smaller surface studio this way;)
im also happy i bought it in time. i can see price back to 1439 now! and still not in stock when free xbox offer finishing today. Hot!

One thing that has pleased me is I can run GTA 5 on low settings at 1920*1080 with framerate between 40-60, averaging 50. That means this Surface Book is stronger for gaming than Xbox One or PS4, which only does 30FPS on GTA 5 (even the PS4 Pro).

Now 30 quid for xbox cashback via quidco.

Edited By: marcz on Dec 14, 2016 23:37: .
marcz
Spoke with quidco and they confirmed cashback will be paid for each item separate even if all added to card and paid at once. You can click on surface 8.8% in quidco then add Surface Book to cart, get back quidco, click on xbox, add to cart, get back to quidco add surface pro 4... This way should track normal. Just missed it was 13.2% two days ago.. That would be even cheaper.. Anyway don't get this cold votes.. Its glitch that save you 250 on another device if you want buy surface book with xbox or surface pro 4 with xbox, then sell even for 100 less other device and if quidco pay off you are 200+ better then without 2nd device... Also, what about to do a trick, buy all and then return surface pro 4 and xbox and get back 971? Surface book then will be 1189 + quidco cashback 8.8%...



​this is quite a good deal. But it is kind of silly to get 2 surface devices and an xbox whereas the 2 surface sort of similar. I went for i5 surface pro 256 and xbox.

I just cant justify buying another surface, just to sell it. Too hassle.

Maybe this help someone save a bit if you intrested for both devices or sell rest and keep only one. It's working out as follow:
Surface book i5/256/8gb - £1189
Surface pro 4 i5/256/8gb - £721
Xbox 1s 500gb + Fifa 2016 - £249
Basicly if you add 1 xbox for 249 you get 249 off from other device (no need to add 2nd xbox, 249 OFF its added instead of 2nd Xbox...) That's on top of 10% off. Possibly quidco cashback.
Still "overpriced" but best deal around i suppose if you want invest and resell rest...
To get it you need
Add surface book, add 1x xbox, then add surface pro 4 and skip adding 2nd xbox...
8.8% on Quidco now too - nice bonus!
I'm unsure this will work on bundle, if so 16.50 off xbox should do as well. Was 13% yesterday...
Quidco will track the surfaces and Xbox separately as the XBox is priced at 249(-VAT).
Very nice of you to find this glitch !!!

Thanks..
If quidco pay off they further discount will be £83 on Surface Book, £50 on Surface Pro 4 and 16.50 for Xbox...
That will be very nice indeed! I only want 1 device, but very tempted to buy and sell others...
In cold calculations could be :
2160 - 149 quidco = £2011. Then sell xbox for £200, Surface pro for £800+ and keep Surface book for just about 1000.... Hmmm tempting...

Assuming you can get one of these locally this is a great deal. I got one the other week when the offer was on, with a free Xbox one s and FIFA. I sold the Xbox on eBay for £220 (with an offer on reduced final sellers fees so cleared £200). So it cost me about £770. It's a great machine, much cooler running than the surface pro 3 and has replaced both my iPad Pro 12" and my MacBook Pro retina with one device. Battery life is pretty good too, much better than I thought it would be, not too far off my iPad Pro.

Agreed that the keyboard is a bit expensive but I got mine from Amazon for about £85 which was the cheapest at the time. Again much improved from the older sp3 keyboard.

Sorry to troll but beware the Costco membership is a total farce.
Joined in Aug and so far the only money I have ever saved is 90p off a pack of Gaviscon. Prices are pretty much the same as Tesco/Asda who you don't need a stupid card to shop with.
Basically if you are thinking of coming a member for this offer then don't. If you are already a member then it's not a bad deal, the £11 can go towards the £25 you were duped into spending.
Goes without saying that I won't be renewing my membership next year.


If you are unhappy with Costco membership and dont feel it has provided value then they will refund the membership fee you paid - just ask.

Personally I love it and find it great value on some things, but on others the offers at Tesco/Asda etc beat it hands down. Just got to know what is worth buying and what isn't. There returns policy/customer service is also on a par with John Lewis.

NB: I am a member of Costco but otherwise have no financial links to them
You might want to mention the free Xbox One S included as well. Probably had a load of cold votes as doesn't sound like a great deal as it stands.

I have been a member for over 20 years and to be fair, lots of things are cheaper and lots of things are more expensive.... so I try to only buy the things that are cheaper.
If you ask for your membership to be refunded, I think they still do that.
They have 81 Million card holders, giving you your money back won't hurt their profits too much!

Gonna let the membership run its course and see if anything comes up that changes my mind.

At the moment just think it's a very clever marketing ploy that adds percieved value by making people feel like they belong to an exclusive club. Also if they have 81m members that's 2bn in membership fees alone!! Surely we should expect better than an £11 discount on a £1000 Surface Pro :)

Though I could be convinced otherwise so will keep an open mind but until then think it's a bit of a farce.

I wouldn't be so sure that would work if the licence is tied to a specific SKU.

Amazing deal. Highly recommended, absolutely love mine.

Model 7G6-00002 is the original model that came with Windows 8. The free upgrade to Windows 10 has now expired so you'd be stuck with 8. I'm surprised Argos have managed to find stock of this model, they must have been hanging around in a warehouse for at least 12 months, probably more. Also, "fast Intel processor", isn't really true at all, it's a fairly poor Atom CPU. It would be a decent deal if it were £250 or less.

Not entirely true, you can use a work around to get the free upgrade http://www.hotukdeals.com/freebies/free-upgrade-windows-10-assistive-technology-users-free-upgrade-still-available-2522379

Surely that would be the Surface Pro 3? I believe the Surface 3 came later

No he's right, the Surface 3 originally came out with Windows 8 in May 2015 before being refreshed a few months later to be preinstalled with Windows 10 when that came out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surface_3
Surely you could get a pretty good laptop and a tablet for that money - cold

I think this is the best deal going now.
Doesn't include the keyboard though so an extra £93.99 (best price is Amazon) for that
Presumably this only includes Amazon as the seller. I can't see the i5 8gb model for sale from Amazon. Loads of sellers on there but not Amazon direct.

I got a similar deal yesterday in store but it was the i7 / 8GB / 256GB model for £1599.10. No idea what the suggestion of display models is about both the laptop and Xbox were in sealed boxes.

Thanks Ziggy.
Perhaps those voting cold can post a better deal for the product? Oh no I forgot this is HUKD it's just Microsoft haters/Apple fan boys voting :D

It happens to apple deals too i think. Not sure if it is fanboys or just people who don't want an expensive product thinking nobody else should either.


Probably the latter, lots of people don't get that spending extra money can get you extra quality though I admit that the law of diminishing returns does kick in at some point. At the end of the day it's a deal if it's the cheapest a certain item can be purchased. If that item represents value for money IS A DIFFERENT issue.
Also available from microsoft store with fifa16 or forza 3

Completely agree tells you something about the demographic of this site when yorkshire puddings for 50p goes over 1000 degrees oO
@Sp0oner Cheers yes I was not sure where to price the Xbox but I put it on Gumtree at £200 got a call within 10mins and collected within 1/2 hour very happy with that as Ebuyer are now doing the small package at £199!

As for staff discount I live in Notts and luckily know a few people who work at the big PCWorld/Nowhow warehouse there, so there is always someone about to share a staff discount on a decent deal.

just need to wait for the factory fresh one to arrive now, hoping it will be this week

Shame the deal took the Negative plunge, its such a shame expensive kit on here normally gets hammered for no reason. Takes so long to find the deals now amongst the 5p off dog food red hots!

£2000.00 ? ridicules to pay that amount of money!
what if it was for a house?
I get that this is a lot of money but it's £225 off RRP PLUS an XBox thrown in which is not too shabby.

Hot from me.

P.S. I got this at RRP and it's worth every penny :)
10% off the normal price and an xBox makes it a good price

Wont be for everyone at this price point though.

Bought the i5 version last December and absolutely hate the thing. I've probably used it around 10 times. My biggest gripe is due to my stupidity. MS, Crucial, Smasung, all SSD brands seem to advise strongly about using hibernate. That is where my main problem lies. My desktop has not had a re-start in over a year; I have far too many programs running that I don't want to save and close that I edit with. I find it inconvenient to write down what has been edited and where to carry on from. Due to a form of Dyslexia, I have poor memory. Give me 5 words to remember and I've forgotten them in less than 10 minutes. A normal book page takes 6 minutes and I can't remember what I read the previous chapter. Won't bore everyone with more details but not being able to hibernate constantly is no use for me. It's not my only gripe with the machine; I just don't like the way it 'feels'. Compared to the ipad pro I purchased instead, it feels flimsy. The keyboard is also poor and the trackpads don't act like a laptop trackpad.
The pen is difficult to use (well, for me). I constantly move MS Edge or Mozilla tabs to new windows by mistake.
Anyway, I'd advise anyone thinking about buying one of these to go look/touch/test one if possible first.
But you should restart your machine periodically it's good practice.
Personally find the surface 10* better that iPad Pro for my needs :)

Do you also rewind your VHS tapes back after watching them.
Get a grip, it's not 1995!

Yes. Currys were the selling the Core M version with pen & keyboard for £599.01 on the Sunday after Black Friday. I got JL to price match. The same deal was also available direct from Microsoft.

There is £100 difference between this one with the M3 processor and the i5. I know there's always something better for more £££s but it's not a fortune extra in the grand scheme of things.
Anyone have experience of how the M3 is? My usage is Chrome (maybe 20 tabs) and Microsoft office, not a whole lot else.

[quote=Jimmyboy]Can the Surface Pro be connected to two monitors?
Yes
useful
just a quick note for those noting Chrome + lots of RAM... use the extension "the great suspender" which suspends tabs that aren't active, freeing up system resources massively. works really well
Thanks for the tip, just gave it a go. I had 36 tabs open on Chrome and was using almost 5gb ram (not all for Chrome but couldn't work out how to show a total as just showed how much each tab was taking by the looks of it). Ran The Great Suspender and change the time to 20 seconds (default is an an hour). I waited 20 seconds and ram usage dropped to under 3gb. Made me realise actually that for me 4gb won't be enough so think I'm going for the 8gb model.

Have the i5 16gb RAM variant and I've got to be honest I have serious realibility issues it's been back to MS.
Being a IT manager I was very surprised in the amount of problems I've had with this considering the price and reputation of the Surface range.
Main issues for me are device locks up and also device stuck when coming out of sleep/hibernation
Nice try.. there is no i5/16GB Surface Pro.. if you don't even know what you're buying then this is probably not the right device for you and your organisation
Jesus my mistake it has 8GB and not 16GB, this place gets worse.
Feel obliged to take a photo with my surface and name but then I really have stooped just to meet people expectations.
To be fair you've set expectations pretty low so i wouldn't worry about it.
People are rude to you because there was no need for you to tell everyone you were an "IT Manager". You're basically holding a sign over your head saying "I have a managerial position in IT so I definitely know I'm talking about".
But in the process you balls it up and listed the wrong specs that destroyed your credibility as an "IT Manager".
So you end up looking a like d-bag.
You quoted the wrong person :(

A while back tech forums were saying the dev teams were being cut back, this is usually a sign they are going to give up.
Sales have not been good, and M$ have a history of not supporting devices long enough to establish a market - just look at their phone division.
Of course they may have changed their minds, but I wouldnt buy one as you are paying for Apple style eye candy rather than the tech inside.
But that is just me, function over form.

So its went from stopped development to forums said a while ago. Thats a pretty fast backtrack. At this rate they will be bringing out new products any day now... oh wait.
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing! I'd be fairly confident in the range having a healthy future, the new Surface Book announcement doesn't suggest to me they are cutting back, that and the Surface range is very successful both critically and commercially.

AFAIK, the news was quite old which is quite true during earlier surface development. Surface pro 4 and Book (current gen) is still selling very well and they are likely to release to the new version during spring next year.

So nearly a grand for something with no future (MS have effectively stopped developing the "Surface" range).
Didnt they just release a new high end version of the surface book, bring out a surface desktop and a surface dial?

Doesn't sound like they have stopped development.

The Microsoft Surface Family, a line of high performance gadgets, blends the utility of a laptop with the convenience of a tablet. In each version the hardware is impressively powerful and the design is sleek. There are five key lines in the Microsoft Surface Family: the Surface, the Surface Pro, the Surface Book, the Surface Hub and the Surface Studio. Together, the Surface range has brought Microsoft into direct competition with world-class PCs like the MacBook. The best Surface deals can be found on a dedicated page here at HotUKDeals.

surface family

The Microsoft Surface

The Surface was Microsoft's initial attempt at making a modern notebook device and remains a strong contender in the tablet market. The basic tablet design can be improved with a typing cover for faster and more comfortable handling and when not in use this keyboard acts as a protective layer. This original version of the Surface range now has a Windows RT 8.1 operating system and often comes ready with Microsoft Office 2013 RT optimised for use with a touch screen, providing Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Word and OneNote. The build quality is excellent, the screen looks great and the speakers perform well for a tablet. Some people may find the app selection to be slightly limited in comparison to Apple devices, but the Microsoft range is expanding all the time. Also, the screen is notably low resolution and this has a knock on effect on the camera, which is disappointing. Surprisingly, the Surface has no NFC technology and is not enabled for 3G or 4G use.

The Surface Version 2

Most design features of the Surface 2 are shared with the Surface, but it is thinner and weighs less than the original. The new 1.7 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 chipset gives this version a faster processing speed and there's also an upgraded 1080p display, bringing better colour rendering and lower reflection. The connectivity can also e promoted with a 3.0 USB port.

The Surface Version 3

The Surface 3 has a larger 10.8 inch screen and a full Windows desktop operating system. The Atom x7-Z8700 processor is more substantial and the display is capable of reaching 4K standards. You can also choose to add on a microSD memory card, with up to 200 GB of extra storage.

Specifications for the Microsoft Surface version 3
Processor: Quad-core Intel® Atom x7-Z8700
RAM: 2GB or 4GB
Weight: 1.37lbs (621g)
Size: 10.52 x 7.36 x 0.34 inches (267 x 187 x 8.7mm)
Screen resolution: 1920 x 1280 pixels
Camera: 3.5MP front, 8.0MP rear

Microsoft Surface 3

The Surface Pro

A light and portable machine that runs on a Windows 8 operating system, the Surface Pro offers the features of a PC in the form of a tablet. You can run all the applications you enjoy in your preferred browser and the touch screen controls are improved with a Surface Pen (https://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-gb/support/touch-mouse-and-search/surface-pen?os=windows-10&=undefined) for more precise work. If you remove the snap-on keyboard, it immediately becomes a notebook - you'll get the all the benefits of a Windows 8 operating system, accessed through a bright attractive touch screen. There is also a generous 2TB of expandable storage, but in this original version the battery life is somewhat disappointing and the device, at just under 2lb, is too heavy for some.

The Surface Pro Version 2

The second version of the Surface Pro kept to the original exterior design, but with revamped hardware. It was produced using the fourth generation Haswell Intel Core i5-4200U and has the option of increased storage, to either 256GB or 512GB. Users are able to upgrade the operating system to Windows 10.

The Surface Pro Version 3

The third generation of the Surface Pro runs on Windows 10 software and has a stand that now allows the device to be set at a number of different angles. It has a larger 12-inch screen, but still weighs less.

The Surface Pro Version 4

This latest Surface Pro 4 has the same screen size as version 3, but a slimmer screen with greater resolution at 2736 x 1824. The cooling system has been re-engineered  and these models include a powerful 6th generation Skylake Intel Core processor.

Specifications for the Surface Pro version 4
Processor: 6th Gen Intel® Core m3, i5 or i7
RAM: 4GB, 8GB or 16GB
Weight: m3 1.69lbs (766g), i5 1.73lbs, i7 1.73lbs (786g)
Size: 11.5 x 7.93 x 0.33 inches (292.1 x 201.42 x 8.45mm)
Screen resolution: 2736 x 1824 pixels
Camera: 5MP front, 8MP rear

Microsoft Surface Pro 4

The Microsoft Surface Book

The Surface Book is less refined than the Surface Pro, but is still an excellent PC packed with premium software, a high resolution screen and a stylus for added convenience. Each aspect of this futuristic-looking device has been thought through carefully and designed for a reason, for example the hinge enables the clipboard to be detached quickly and the Surface Pen is held securely beside the screen. The battery life offers around 8 hours of continual usage and you'll get the latest version of Windows and Office for word-processing and spreadsheets, as well as limitless apps. It's not designed for serious gaming, but can is compatible with less demanding titles.

Specifications for the Surface Book
Processor: 2.4GHz Intel® Core i5 or i7
RAM: 8GB or 16GB
Weight: i5 3.34lbs (1516g), i7 3.48lbs (1576g)
Size: Laptop 9.14 x 12.30 x 0.51-0.90 inches (232.1 x 312.3 x 13-22.8mm), Clipboard 8.67 x 12.30 x 0.30 inches (220.2 x 312.3 x 7.7mm)
Screen resolution: 3000 x 2000 pixels
Camera: 5MP front, 8MP rear

The Surface Hub

The Surface Hub is an interactive screen that's ideal for a business environment () and comes in two sizes, the 55 inch or the 84 inch version. It's still a PC but without a password or lock screen feature, instead you use the on-screen buttons to access whichever function you need. Open a Skype call, connect to a laptop, or use the whiteboard application, it's all available quickly and simply. When you start a meeting you enter Stage, from here you can see other attendees down the side of the screen and also your own view as a thumbnail. The whiteboard is placed centrally and any apps you need can be displayed for all to see, then controlled via the touch screen.

Specifications for the Surface Hub 55"
Processor: Intel® Haswell (4th Gen) Core i5
RAM: 8GB
Weight: 105lbs
Size: 31.75 x 59.62 x 3.38 inches (806.4 x 1514.3 x 85.8mm)
Camera: Dual 1080p front facing

Specifications for the Surface Hub 84"
Processor: Intel® Haswell (4th Gen) Core i7
RAM: 8GB
Weight: 280lbs (127kg)
Size: 46.12 x 86.7 x 4.15 inches (1171.5 x 2202.9 x 105.4mm)
Camera: Dual 1080p front facing

Surface Studio

Designed to work as a blank canvas, the Surface Studio is a substantial PC with plenty of power. It has an ergonomic feel and the appearance of an elite machine, all housed in an extremely thin 12.5mm casing. You can position it at a 20 degree angle so it's reminiscent of using an easel, then use swipes, taps and lines to produce images with a stylus. 13.5 million pixels render colours, texture and tone in stunning clarity, but as it runs on a Windows OS and has the latest version of Microsoft Office, the Surface Studio can also perform more day to day tasks.

Specifications for the Surface Studio
Processor: 6th Generation Intel® Core i5 or i7
RAM: 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB
Weight: 21lbs (9.56kg)
Size: 28 inch (71.12cm) with PixelSense Display
Camera: Windows Hello2 face sign-in, 5MP front

Microsoft Surface Studio

There's a Surface Version for Every Consumer

The Microsoft Surface is an affordable PC that is perfect for light home use and study. If you want to browse the internet, write e-mails, type documents or use spreadsheets, it will serve you well. The Surface is also an excellent starter PC for school and college students. Moreover, the Surface 3 is the most compact version of the Surface family.

For people who want a tablet which can be used like a laptop, the Surface Pro is their best choice. It combines portability with increased battery life which is great if you'll be using it on the go, or as a home and work computer combined.

The Surface Book is a good all-rounder, that's the most powerful Surface laptop suitable for people who want to type, edit photos, work on spreadsheets, go online, and play a few light games. It's a high-powered laptop that performs everyday tasks well and has a long battery life.

The Surface Hub is designed for use in business: it's the ideal tool for conducting meetings with people in other parts of the country or the world. The screen is clear enough to share information effectively and up to three other people at a meeting can also write on the page you are using, with different coloured inks. The Surface Hub works well for meetings between two people, but it can also handle larger groups.

If you need a laptop which can double up as an easel and provide a pop-up art studio wherever you happen to be, the Surface Studio is just right. It has a higher price tag than most of the other Surface family gadgets, but this is a specialised device which offers users the feeling of creating physical art from a screen.

Showdown 1: Microsoft Surface Book vs. MacBook Pro

Both of these high-end laptops are at the premium end of the market and of a similar size, but how do their other specifications compare?

Design Features of the MacBook Pro and the Microsoft Surface Book

The Surface Book has changed little over the years with its body secured in a strong magnesium alloy with a striking hinge mechanism to the back. At 3.5lbs it's heavier than the streamlined MacBook Pro which weighs in at 3lbs. Apple also have a thinner device at just 14.9mm, compared to the Surface at 22.8mm, but the Microsoft laptop can be separated from its base and become considerably more lightweight. Once the keyboard section of the Surface Book is disconnected, it's a 13.5 inch tablet, and unlike the MacBook Pro, it can then offer touch screen functionality. Microsoft may have designed a larger device, but it's also far more versatile than its Apple rival.

Which Has the Superior Display?

Although the screens are closely matched at 15.5 inches for the Surface Book and 13.3 inches for the MacBook Pro, the Microsoft laptop is packed with a stunning 3000 x 2000 pixel resolution compared to 2560 x 1600 in the Apple. The contrast is good on both, but the MacBook is brighter, with a wider range of colour tones.

Software Capabilities of the Surface Book and the MacBook Pro

The MacBook Pro runs on MacOS Sierra, it's a dependable operating system that's compatible with other Apple devices and brings the Siri AI along with it. The Surface Book uses Windows 10 which has a completely different interface, but the two systems aren't poles apart in terms of what they can do. Both enable a user to set up various desktops, both provide access to an app store and both are very easy to navigate. Windows 10 has Cortana, to compete with Siri, a digital assistant that works accurately and is well integrated into the rest of the software. You can write notes and perform file or online searches using your voice, and if you are already using a Windows phone, you can transfer your settings across effortlessly.

surface laptop tablet

So Which is the Best?

The Surface Book can be used as a laptop, or detached from the keyboard for use as a tablet with touch screen; this is definitely the right device if you really want the best of both worlds. Both are available with the same amount of storage - 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB - but it's worth noting that the MacBook Pro no longer has an SD card slot, which may put off photographers, both amateur and professional. Although Apple have a tried and tested design formula, plus software that's preferred by many users for its compatibility, the Surface Pro is a genuine alternative for people who are seeking a more flexible gadget.

Showdown 2: Microsoft Surface Pro vs. iPad Pro

Both the Surface Pro and the iPad Pro are extremely impressive tablets, but they differ in many ways and aren't aimed at the same users. For people who want their gadget to provide plenty of gaming opportunities and creative tools, the iPad Pro is likely to be more popular. It's got four speakers, a super-fast A9X processor inside and you can choose to buy a cover and Apple Pencil separately. Unlike the slicker Apple device, the Surface Pro is essentially a more adaptable replacement for your laptop. Running on Windows 10, it has a 6th generation processor which can easily equal the output of the A9X.

Differences in Design Between the iPad Pro and the Surface Pro

The iPad Pro is available in a 12.9 inch format and a more manageable 9.7 inch size. Somewhere in the middle, the Surface Pro has a screen size of 12.3 inches, but because the body of the device is more compact, it feels far less bulky than the larger iPad Pro. Regarding portability, the smaller iPad Pro is certainly a better choice. It's perfect for slipping into a bag or rucksack on your way to university or work.

The iPad Pro is noticeably more streamlined than the Surface Pro, with the larger version measuring 0.27 inches and the smaller 0.24 inches. The Surface Pro is a sturdier 0.33 inches thick, but this does include a kickstand. If you want the iPad Pro to stand independently you'll need to snap on a cover and choose the position you want it in. The Surface Pro's more ample size means it can fit in a microSD card slot, a mini DisplayPort and that all important standard USB as well – for some users these extra ports will be a significant bonus.

When you add the keyboard enabled Type Cover, the Surface Pro increases in weight from 1.7lbs to 2.4lbs. It's not hugely different to the larger iPad Pro, which starts at 1.6lbs and then grows to 2.3lbs if you attach the Smart Keyboard, but the smaller iPad weighs just 1.5lbs with a keyboard and 0.96lbs alone.

How do the Displays Measure Up?

Despite having a larger screen the iPad Pro has less pixels per inch than the Surface Pro, 267 dpi to 264 dpi. Colours are warmer and brighter too on the Surface Pro, but the 9.7-inch iPad Pro features a True Tone display function, this automatically detects brightness levels in a room and compensates to create a richer visual image.

Which has a Better Audio Output?

Fitting four speakers to a device as small as a tablet is difficult to achieve, but Apple has made it happen on the iPad Pro and the audio benefits hugely, whether you are listening to music or watching a film. The Surface Pro makes do with two front facing speakers, these can lack bass, but as they're produced by Dolby Audio, the sound quality is still crisp.

Is There More Battery Life in the Surface Pro or the iPad Pro

If you are going to choose a tablet based on its battery life, then the iPad Pro is going to be your best buy. On average the Surface lasts around 6 hours in continual use, but the iPad Pro can keep going for up to 10 hours.

The Widest App Selection

Users of the iPad Pro can gain access to thousands of apps through the App Store, many of which are optimised for their gadget. Choose from sections devoted to the arts, to writing and to photo editing, as well as gaming. The Surface Pro user may have a smaller choice when it comes to apps in the Microsoft Store, but those on offer are heavy hitting classics like Photoshop, along with Steam and Google Chrome.

So Which is the Best Tablet?

Comparing the iPad Pro and the Surface Pro is not an easy task, because they are designed for different needs. If you're choosing between the two, it might help to consider whether you want a tablet which works just as well as a notebook, like the Surface Pro, or a powerful tablet with a bigger screen, like the larger iPad Pro.

What Kind of Accessories are Available for the Surface Range?

Increasing the efficiency is easy with the available accessories for the Surface family. These are the most popular:

The Surface Type Cover: This soft cover is essentially a keyboard which makes it easier to type for longer. It's perfect for people using the mobile tablet devices for work or study, but also acts as a colour coordinated protective cover. The keyboard is also backlit, so you can use it in low light.

Microsoft Docking Station: Whether you keep it at home or in the office, this docking station presents a handy way to charge your device. There are also extra ports so you can connect any other Surface devices and charge them at the same time.

The Surface Pen: If you'll be buying a Surface Product, the pen is a great accessory. It makes writing feel natural and is great for art projects. On the side, the pen has editing features and a function called “Palm Block“ which stops the side of your hand affecting the screen.

Finding Help with a Microsoft Surface Gadget

Many problems with the Surface range can be solved using Microsoft's extensive online support service. Just click "Devices and Xbox" from the drop down "Product" menu on the Microsoft homepage, and then choose Microsoft Surface, followed by "Support". If your problem is not covered, or the solution doesn't work, you can talk to a live agent online, visit their page on Twitter, or send them a message via Facebook.

How to Get a Great Price on a Surface Product

The most affordable product in this range is the Microsoft Surface, an excellent choice for light home use and education but some people will need a higher powered unit. To get a lower price on elite goods like the Surface Pro or the Surface Book, you could choose one of the older models or wait until Microsoft have a deal on the device you want.

Other major electronics retailers like Tesco, Currys, Amazon and Argos, also have discounts on top range Surface devices throughout the year. Look out for special offers during the November Black Friday event, as well as in annual New Year and summer sales.
