Like every surface model, way overpriced for what it is.
is it in store too?
Good deal, but even with the discount it's still a bit steep for myself.

​I think you'll struggle to find anything else with identical specs much cheaper

I cant see it saying anything about it being in store too
These are dreadful. I've used one and to be honest they are heavy, clunky and not worth that amount of money.

​Got to agree with Stevenfeeny, far from heavy and definitely not clunky, especially in i5 and i7 spec. As for cost still think it's hard to beat 2k 3:2 screen, proper stylus and the mag alloy chassis. Yes it's expensive but it is a premium product.

Of the various Pro 4 models, which is the best value combination,ie. spec 'vs' price? I've been wanting one for a while to take on trips where a traditional laptop is too heavy and I need full functionality (with the keyboard cover). Thanks in advance!

You can get a keyboard cover for either.

​I would say the i5 8gb 256gb is best middle ground. Not checked present line up but if there is an i5 4gb 256gb ssd, that would do if on a budget and only basic use. The 512gb models are a step up in price and I think the 128gb would get too small after a while. You can add a sd card as extra storage which can give you up to another 128gb.

But not necessarily offer value for money...

Bought mine last month from John Lewis , but I'm over the 28 day price match :-(

Bargain though! Brilliant device love it

Not quite, even you got a job, you still cannot afford one, the government has, in your name, borrowed one point five trillion plus printed extra four hundred billion pounds and borrowed several hundred billions from private finance initiative scheme, so as to have more money circulating so you got money in you job which you shouldn't have.

But not necessarily offer value for money...


And bigger macro economics explanation above, I would recommend £450 for a Dell Lattitude 7000 series refurbished, as I have one, even when I could afford £1000. Put it this way, if all laptops in UK were £1000 instead of average at £350 , the bigger picture view says value for money is the lower price that does the job adequately. However the Surface Pro is an excellent personal choice for some, great product a la feel of MacBook Air.

​Do you actually believe this government propaganda? Nobody has seen evidence of this so called dept. It's just this government blaming the previous and an excuse for cut, cut, cut.....

​It's the best product of its type available, like anything in life top of the line = expensive.
The back stand is annoying trust me Lenovo flips are better. Jr. expensive
I have this model and it is a fantastic hybrid laptop. Sure you can get cheaper for better specs but nothing as portable. This is basically quite a sufficiently powerful laptop for most people in a tablet form.
Hahaha what a joke, nearly £1000 for Windows ****
Yuck. Ive returned surface pro ive bought before!! Slow and waaay uncool to carry around. Id say its an Overpriced junk! But thats just me.
Nice spec etc .... but
Surface Pro 4 my view to all this portability etc
1 it is still heavy to hold 1 hand not like Ipad or Tab S2 .... So all usage will be on the desk maybe 10 minutes in hand than back to table
2 Touch usage how much programs optimized to use as finger touch ? Yes they are on windows 10 but it is not the same experience as full touch on android or Ipad
I think that part touch finger friendly and will lot of times when need mouse
4 Accessories need to buy extra like keyboard cover - where laptop got keyboard do not need to buy anything
5 Portability me I do prefer phone size Note 4 or else up to 6 inch screen I got everything camera phone , can navigate , can easy read web etc ... This what I call perfect size little tablet size and phone + 4K video recording
6 Gaming or coding videos etc ? Do I want to work on dual core cpu ??? Gaming on Intel GPU ?? What for £250 you can get PS4 or xbox one it will be 10 times better Or maybe you are the minecraft gamer than yes surface is perfect for this. My point I do not see why you want to spend more money on core i7 or core i5 when cpu trotelling and heat and battery usage + gaming hmmm

I do see people working with laptop / same gaming -- but if we have 12 - 14 inch laptop and 27 inch desktop PC what is your work station will be laptop or desktop ???

I can easy by surface pro 4 but than Im giving my self question what I will do with this device when I have
27 Inch 6 core PC with 4 x SSD + Crossfire GPU will I work on surface pro 4 ??/ or just use as media player or read web ???
I have Galaxy tab S2 and I love this device the amoled 9.7 inch and light it is perfect to read news read emails , youtube , etc ...

REVIEW
Im not saying it is bad device or quality Yes i would like to have one but is this device
Tablet : no
Portable laptop - Yes
Expensive laptop - Yes
Low Power Laptop - Yes
Gaming Machine - No
Video editing - No or Yes with fan noise and heat problems
Laptop replacement - no because it is portable laptop with detachable keyboard
Workstation - no
Office PC - no ""Yes maybe light works like office" but with 12 inch screen after 2 Year will need glasses

quicker to type 'this device is not for me'

I love the surface I use from work, however £1000 is too high a price for me to want to pay out of my own pocket.

I very rarely use mousepad. I use the pen most of the time.

P.S. I accidentally liked Incognitoso's post. Anyone know how I can undo it? Lol.

Agreed it's in a league of its own. Going to the states again soon soooooo tempted to pick up a Surface Book whilst I'm there.....must resist temptation......
I don't get why you would pay that much money for a device that is essentially a mini laptop, the specs aren't jaw dropping, I've had a surface pro 3 and I've hardly used it much but then again I'm a gamer and you certainly can't play games on it
For those that are interested, it's ~£10 cheaper at Cuirrys if you are buying the keyboard as well:-
currys.co.uk/gbu…tml
Not sure about the warranty.
any Student deals that can be applied to this?
was using the original surface and it was great
but this is still quite bit of money
You'd be mad to spend ~£1,000 on one of these instead of an XPS 13.....
So many of you are saying it isnt worth the money, but I'm after something that is less than 1kg in weight and can run Adobe creative suite....I already have a Mac air 13" but need a windows machine...any other thoughts on what is as good as the surface book? or pro4?
