Microsoft Surface Pro

Deceptively light, obscenely powerful, and incredibly versatile.

The new Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) is a true 2-in-1 hybrid tablet that feels like a tablet most of the time, with the added bonus of becoming a laptop when you need it.

Why the Microsoft Surface Pro is the best

The new Surface Pro is a small refinement over the Surface Pro 4, but all of the changes make a well-rounded new release.

It runs cooler, has a Core m3 or Core i5 version for fanless, silent running, and is slightly rounder than its predecessor. It has a truly stunning display and a digital pen is included for all the handwriting and drawing you might want to do. It also has support for the Surface Dial.

For the best Windows 10 tablet, check out the Microsoft Surface Pro.

At the high end, you can have a Surface Pro with a 1TB solid state drive (SSD), a Kaby Lake Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM.

But with that comes a price to pay. Literally. The Surface Pro can be expensive, starting at $799, and going all the way up to more than $2,000 at the top tier. But it isn't just a tablet. It's a tablet and a laptop, and with the optional docking station it can even become your desktop.
