The Surface Pro 4 has a 12.3-inch screen so it's 40% larger and boasts 267 DPI; that's over 5 million pixels on the screen!!! The good news is that the increased screen size hasn't been achieved by increasing the footprint of the device. Rather, it's been achieved by decreasing the size of the bezel. So there's more real-estate for Windows 10 and your applications.



Microsoft's new flagship tablet is the size of a sheet of paper and thinner and lighter. It's 8.4mm thick and weighs just 1.73 pounds (786 grams). The company has said that its Surface Pro 4 is the thinnest, most powerful Surface yet. It sports the latest Skylake 6th generation Intel Core processor and NVIDIA GPU with GDDR5 memory and has up to 16GB RAM and up to 1TB of storage.
