I am one of the lucky persons owning an brand new Microsoft Surface Pro as a new device for work. This is the my devices I used for the last couple of days and weeks as my daily driver and this allows me to write a quick review about my first impressions about the Surface Pro.
After using the Surface Pro, the Surface Pro 2, the Surface Pro 3, the Surface Book became my daily driver. And I had to say that it is a great notebook. But after using the Surface Pro for awhile, I really got used to the form factor. The 2-in-1 form factor and the small and light design, made the Surface Pro a really great travel companion and this was the reason I decided to go with a Surface Pro again.
My first impression when I took the Surface Pro out of the box was: “wow, this feels premium”. Even the Surface Pro and the Surface Book always felt really great, Microsoft improved it even more. The amazing premium sound of the kickstand, the new rounded edges and the display making it even more premium and as mentioned the build quality is amazing.
The second thing I realized while using it, is the resume form standby is incredible fast. You basically press the on button and you can start working. And this while battery life is still great, I get around a whole working day out of it with a single charge.
Unfortunately I couldn’t really test the new Surface Pro Signature Type Cover, because it was not available at launch. But I will included it in my final review, after I have used it for a couple of weeks.

I love my Surface Pro 4, and it is easily my preferred device for anything productive, but the battery life is shocking. I get at most a few hours out of it.
Yes, I know I’m a heavy user, but I really feel that Microsoft needs to bring out some form of portable charging. Even if it only gives me a bit of extra charge on the go…
I know that is what I heard from others using the Surface Pro 4 too. I never hat the issue using the Surface Book. and now one of the top features of the Surface Pro 2017 should be the improved battery life. So I hope that this model solves the issues
