From what we can see, the Surface Pro 4 and the new model for the Surface Pro are quite similar. If you’re one of the people who is undecided between the 2016 and 2017 technology, then you should read on to see the differences between the two products.
The design could literally be a mirror image and nobody would tell the difference. The only thing that is not the same here is the height, with the new Surface Pro being 0.1 mm taller. However, this is hard to notice in real life.
Both products offer a 3:2 aspect ratio, 12.3-inches screen display, complete with a 2736×1824 pixels resolution. The new device includes multi-touch support, plus a better version of the Surface Pen. However, keep in mind that the Surface Pen does not come included in the box.
The main upgrade we can find on the new Surface Pro device is the CPU. The Kaby Lake chipsets are used for all three versions, the m3, i5 and i7. Meanwhile, the Surface Pro 4 still runs on Skylake. This means that with the new version, you will see 20% more performance, a better video streaming, as well as a better battery life.
Regarding the storage and the RAM, you have to know that both products offer the same advantages. The internal storage varies from a configuration of 4 GB storage/ 16 GB RAM to 128 GB RAM and 1 TB storage. However, most likely if you intend to buy a new Surface Pro, you will be able to customize it according to your own needs.
Both tablets run on the Windows 10 Pro. However, Microsoft declared that the new Surface Pro will be released together with Windows 10 S. You don’t really need to upgrade to it, but it’s good to know it’s there.
