Yesterday at a Microsoft Store I got to play with a Surface Pro 4 for a little bit. It is exactly what I feared, a worthy replacement for my Surface Pro 3. It is fast, and although the screen is just a little bit bigger, the resolution on it is amazing. It feels solid and is just a little bit thinner than the Surface Pro 3. All in all I’d say it is an amazing computer. I still can’t justify paying for a new computer so soon after buying my Surface Pro 3, but one thing that I can justify is the keyboard.
The new Surface Pro 4 Type Cover has an amazing keyboard on it. The chicklet style keys have just the right action and proves that Microsoft is using its vast knowledge of 25+ years in the keyboard industry to create a great keyboard. I got to play with it for just a little while, but I already like it a thousand times more than this old Type Cover on my Surface Pro 3. There is even a version that comes with a fingerprint reader to enable Windows Hello.
October 26th is the date that the new Surface Pro 4 and the accessories are released. I will be one of the first in line to get the new keyboard.
