Surface Book or Surface Pro 4

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I can't make up my mind. I really love both.

 

Here's what I will use it for:

 

Ocasionally Fusion 360 CAD program (this runs well even on my friend's core M 2 in 1)

PowerPoint presentations

Word Documents

Excel Spreadsheets

OneNote note taking

OneDrive synching

By this point I realize what a perfect Microsoft customer I am :)

Visual Studio 2015 - This needs a Core i5 or better for decent compile times.

Playing music on Spotify using headphones.

I'm not gonna play any games.

Maybe Photoshop CC.

 

Thanks :)

I personally reccomend the surface book only because the keyboard that comes with it feels more natural than one for a SP4, and it includes an extra battery in the keyboard as well as the tablet. plus it can be detached to use as a tablet if needed. I think Linus did a review on it and he said he liked it.


You know how it is, the cow goes "moo", the dog goes "woof" and the gamer goes "The PvP is unbalanced."

Yeah If cost wasn't an issue then I would get Surface Book. But cost is an issue so I'll probably buy a Pro 4.
