“Surface Pro 4 makes it easier for both individuals and businesses to accomplish more in comparison with other devices as it uses the Windows 10 operating system, accompanied by the 6th generation Intel processors, so not only can it run general applications, it also runs desktop programs to perform specialized work on the go and while traveling, especially tasks that rely on cloud services.

The outstanding performance of the device comes as a result of several factors; mainly Microsoft's approach to adopt the concept of advanced business performance via mobile and compact devices, and the Bring Your Own Device BYOD initiative, in addition to putting priority on accessories that allow Surface Pro 4 to replace a laptop”.
