Microsoft's new Surface Pro 4 is now available in Malaysia from RM 3,999 onwards
In October, Microsoft held a special hardware event to showcase new Windows 10 devices and while the two new flagship Lumia devices nor the futuristic Surface Book is yet to make it's way to Malaysia, today Microsoft Malaysia is officially launching the Surface Pro 4. This new model is an upgrade over last year's Surface Pro 3 and can now be picked up through official retailers throughout the nation for a base price of RM 3,999.
The biggest update with this new model is the inclusion of Intel's new 6th generation Skylake processors that Microsoft say will improve performance of up to 30% over last year's Surface Pro 3. Besides that, the Surface Pro 4 can now be configured with up to 1TB of SSD storage and the base model now has 128GB of storage opposed to only 64GB on the Surface Pro 3.
While the overall design of the Surface Pro 4 hasn't changed much in the past year, Microsoft is increasing the screen size of their 2-in-1 convertible from a 12" display to a 12.3" display and also bumping up the resolution to produce 267 PPI. The new Surface Pen that magnetically attaches to the side of Surface Pro 4 and features an eraser is also included with the new Surface Pro 4.
Not included in the base price is the optional Type Cover which still looks the same but the keys are now more spread out and the glass trackpad is now bigger than ever. Finally, the new Surface Pro 4 is running Microsoft's latest Windows 10 Pro and will enjoy all the additional software features that the Surface Pen brings to the table like double clinking the button to launch Cortana.
At just 786g, the Surface Pro 4 can be configured with either an Intel m3, i5 or i7 processor and the RAM can be bumped up all the way to 16GB. Not to forget, the Surface Pro 4 still features a single USB 3.0 port and a microSD card for your perusal.
