Microsoft has done excellently with their new products, including the Surface Pro. The Surface Pro refers to a series of tablets running Windows 10, which you can connect to a special detachable keyboard. The Surface Pro 4 has been released back in 2015, but it’s still a great device. Meanwhile, Dell has released quite a serious competitor for this product, namely the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 notebook. This one was released in January and it also a reliable device. But which one scores better?
One of the major differences that have to be mentioned in the beginning is the fact that the keyboard of the Surface Pro 4 can be attached and detached right from the display, while the one for the XPS 13 folds either in part or all the way back.
The XPS 13 device offers a larger display than its rival, sporting 13.3 inches, in comparison with the 12.3 inches found on the Surface Pro 4. XPS also offers two options: FHD display (1920×1080 pixels) or the QHD+ one, with 3200×1800 pixels resolution. Both of them have a clean aspect and almost no bezel at all on the sides and also on the top.
When it comes to battery, Dell decided to go for a low-power CPU, that will score great results with battery life. The company brags about offering 15 hours of battery life on a single charge. Meanwhile, the Surface Pro 4 promises 9 hours of battery life.
Memory and Storage
Here is one of the fields where there aren’t really many differences. When it comes to RAM, both devices use 4/8/16 GB configurations. The two rivals also offer the same options for internal storage too, namely 128/256/512 GB or 1 TB.
