Microsoft has been pitching the concept of tablet replacing your laptop for several generations now. While Surface Pro 3 was quite convincing in itself, the idea gained more traction after Apple introduced its iPad Pro, striving for the same goal.

Several 2-in-1s have popped up since, and today Microsoft brings its Surface Pro 4 and Surface Pro 3 in India, which will be selling for a starting price of 89,990 INR and 73,990 INR. The price seems way to steep, especially since these are base models and since you will have to buy the Smart Keyboard separately for about 12,500 INR.
The Surface Pro 4 is the more refined of the two and comes with an improved pen and smart cover. Talking of specs, it includes a sharp 12.3-inch (2736 x 1824 pixels) display, is powered by 6th Gen Intel processors with Intel HD graphics, 4GB/8GB/16GB RAM and 128 – 1TB storage.
