Microsoft Surface tablets are a range of devices designed for productivity, creativity, and entertainment. One of the key advantages of Microsoft Surface tablets over other tablets is the range of options available. There is a Surface tablet to suit every need, whether you're looking for a powerful device to replace your laptop, a portable tablet for on-the-go use, or a creative machine for art and design.
A key advantage of Microsoft Surface tablets is the build quality. These devices are built to last, with a premium design and high-quality materials. They're also backed by Microsoft's excellent customer service and support. Microsoft Surface tablets also offer unique features such as an integrated LTE modem and dual-screen support that you won't find on many other tablets.
The Surface range of tablets breaks down into several product families including the Surface Pro, Surface Pro X, Surface Go, Surface Laptop Duo and the Surface Duo. With so many models to pick from, choosing the best Surface tablet can be tricky. Let’s take a brief look at each Surface model to help you decide.
The Surface Pro is a powerful device that can replace your laptop, with a good range of ports and an optional keyboard. Currently on its eighth iteration, the Surface Pro comes with a kickstand which has a fully adjustable hinge allowing you to use it in a range of configurations. Pick the Surface Pro if you want a versatile Windows based 2-in-1 device with solid performance, front and rear cameras and an all day battery life.
The Surface Pro X is the thinnest and lightest Surface tablet, with an integrated LTE modem for always-connected internet access. It has a custom ARM based processor, 13” design and a sleek, futuristic design. It’s a great tablet for mainstream office work and general web browsing but there’s no native support for Windows creative apps and it comes at a price premium compared to the Surface Pro.
The Surface Go is a smaller and more portable tablet, ideal for on-the-go use. It’s the most affordable tablet in the Surface range and manages to pack in an impressive display, keyboard and Dolby speakers into a really small chassis. The smaller screen and reduced processing power of the Go means it’s primarily aimed at Chromebook and iPad users or students who need a tablet for everyday tasks.
The Surface Laptop Studio is a powerful creative machine, with a large touchscreen display and optional pen support. Aimed at creative professionals, the Laptop Studio features a 120Hz 14” screen that can be laid flat on top of the keyboard allowing it to be used in tablet mode. It runs on Windows 11, is available in 13” or 15” configurations and comes in a variety of colour options.
Finally, the Surface Duo is a unique dual-screened Android device that allows you to multitask like never before. Now on its second generation, the Surface Duo is Microsoft’s take on the folding, dual screen smartphone. The Duo’s screens are separated by a hinge that allow the device to be used in book mode but also opened up with the screens on the outside like a mobile phone.
No matter which Surface tablet you choose, you're sure to get a premium tablet that provides a great experience.
