When the original Microsoft Surface (Review) and Surface Pro were launched over five years ago, the entire world took notice. Both devices drew attention not only for their style, but also because their existence meant that Microsoft was willing to compete with its own partners in the consumer market. At the time, Microsoft said that the Surface tablets were all about showing Windows off to its full potential; reimagining how hardware and software can work together. They were meant to be the gold standard of Windows devices, and it was easy to see that the software giant was trying to take a page out of Apple's book.
The fifth-generation Microsoft Surface Pro has been launched in India several months after its international debut, and so it will have a tough time competing with the ultraportable laptops and 2-in-1s that competitors have brought to market recently. It looks great and has a well-engineered kickstand, plus the 12-inch 3:2 screen is excellent, and it runs silently. The Surface Pro weighs under 1kg making it extremely portable. However, performance is constrained by the previous-generation Intel CPU, and connectivity is limited to just one USB 3.0 port. Also, you'll have to pay a lot extra for the Surface Type Cover and Surface Pen which ideally should have been included.
