Event: Launch of Microsoft Surface Pro 4 @ MAD Museum

Hey people!

Two weeks ago, I was at the MAD Museum of Art & Design for the Launch of Microsoft Surface Pro 4 with my blogger pals.

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 ($1,399) is an improved version of Surface Pro 3 with increased power and performance packed in an 8.4mm thin tablet - the thinnest and lightest Surface Pro in the market.

Being lightweight and easy to carry, it is a perfect gadget for professionals who work on the go, especially for those who require a highly productive and portable device to facilitate their work.

Surface Pro 4 comes equipped with an impressive 12.3 inch PixelSense Display and Windows 10 Pro software.

Coupled with 6th Generation Intel Core m, Core i5 and Core i7 processors, it is no wonder that Surface Pro 4 can perform with high speed as well as efficiency. You will be glad to hear that this gadget is also quieter, runs cooler and has a long battery lifespan of 9 hours.

There are times when I prefer the familiarity of a laptop compared to a tablet.

Well, this gadget fixes that with the Surface Pro 4 Type Cover ($199) which transforms the tablet into a laptop instantaneously. Available in black, blue and light blue, this type cover is also thin and lightweight with a better magnetic stability. This also means that it adheres tightly to the tablet with a quick snap and does not budge that easily.

To add, the type cover also features a redesigned mechanical keyboard with optimal key space for prompt and smooth typing. You won't have to worry about pressing other keys accidentally anymore.

We were all intrigued by the redesigned Surface Pen ($94) which contains 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity to ensure that you write and draw with utmost precision. In the event when you made an error, you can even remove it with the eraser attached on the end of the pen. How cool is that?!

The Surface Pen is available in charcoal, red, blue and silver. There's even a Surface Pen Tip Kit that allows one to interchange the pen tips to suit different purposes. Below are the available pen tips:

1) HB tip - for writing and sketching;
2) B tip - for sketching and illustrations;
3) H tip - for drawing;
4) 2H tip - for drafting and fast strokes.

Oh yes, if you're afraid of misplacing the Surface Pen, do not worry. Because it is magnetic, you can attach it at the side of the Surface Pro to ensure that it can be found in a conspicuous place. Yay for the innovation!
