As I go to conferences or meet up with friends around the country I constantly get asked about my Surface Devices. I have all three (Surface 3, Surface Pro 4, and Surface Book).
Thought I would cover these responses in a quick blog on my thoughts for each. Think of these as a good, better, and best set of devices.
This is the perfect student device when running Windows 10. As a teacher I would be fine using a Surface 3 from a mobility stance, but I rather have something a bit more powerful like a Surface Pro 4.
Surface Pro 4:
This is my homerun device. There is not one person at a local Starbucks that does not stop me asking me if I like it. The quick answer is YES. I love this thing. I love the pen, I love how light it is, and I love how it’s a full blown computer. I work off this thing more than any other device. I love the fact that Surface is used by NFL coaches and players on the sidelines, in locker rooms, and at home after their games. Now, to be clear, I am not a football player, but this device shows its versatility, no matter what you do for a living or what you study as a student – this device empowers you.
The first words that come to mind when describing my Surface Book is “POWERFUL”. Think of it as your creative workhorse device. The resolution is mind blowing. The multi-touch PixelSense screen and Surface Pen works perfectly for productivity but also creation applications like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
Any way that you look at it, the Surface brand is built with power in mind, and it’s a fully functioning laptop under the hood. It does not matter if you are using it to take simple notes on your Surface 3, dock you Surface Pro 4 in your office, or sketch a graphic novel in your studio using the Surface Book. Any way that you look at it, you will be empowered with those devices to do more.
