It’s all well and good buying an action camera but you’re going to need something to edit the footage on, right? The Surface Pro 4 is Microsoft’s next generation, ultra-light laptop. And with its svelte design, Swiss Army Knife spec sheet and removable keyboard, it’s been bagging five-star reviews throughout 2016.
What sets this device apart is the fact that it combines the power of a laptop with the convenience of a tablet—the Surface Pro can be used with the detachable ‘Type Cover’ keyboard if you’re catching up on mails or editing on the road, or as a touchscreen tablet if you just want to chill in the chalet lounge. You can also use a Surface Pen stylus that enables you to draw and take notes directly on the device.
“This is a super lightweight and versatile bit of kit for digital age shredding”
Everything you do on the Surface Pro 4 is complimented by a stunning screen. Microsoft doesn’t give a name to the technology used in its displays, but at 2736 x 1824 pixels on a 12.3-inch screen it has a greater pixel density than Apple’s ‘Retina’ models – perfect for watching movies, editing images or browsing FB. In fact, since it runs on Windows 10 this thing is also a powerful gaming machine, with framerates of more than 60fps – ideal for a cheeky session on Mark McMorris’ Infinite Air.
