Microsoft Surface Pro Review

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 lower-end Surface has been discontinued now, but the Surface Pro has firmly established itself as a premium 2-in-1 that’s more tablet than laptop. Still, it straddles the line between entertainment and productivity, and fans swear by it because of its portability and versatility.

Microsoft took a long time to launch the Surface Pro in India, and it’s an extremely niche product here thanks to its high price. The company has also taken a long time to refresh the lineup here, and the fifth-gen Surface Pro (now minus a generation number in its name) which debuted in the USA in May last year made it to India only this February. It faces off against a number of brand new ultraportable laptops and 2-in-1s from all the major manufacturers. Will Microsoft’s formula work in India, where cost is a huge factor in people’s buying decisions? Read on to find out.
