Surface Pro Tablet and eBook Readers
Microsoft's Surface Pro line of tablet and eBook readers move tablets out of the pure media consumption arena and into the creation arena.

In fact, it may be best to think of a Pro as a laptop where the keyboard comes off more than a tablet. Different models have offered as much as 16 GB of RAM and as much as 1 TB of storage.

The first Surface Pro models featured a 27 centimetre screen in a 16:9 aspect ratio, which increased on later models to 30 centimetres on Surface Pro 3 tablets and eBook readers, and 31.2 centimetres on Surface Pro 4 tablets and eBook readers and later models. They all featured the latest Intel Core series processors giving them higher performance than many laptops.Surface Pro Accessories
The most important Surface Pro accessories are the cover and the Surface Pen. The Microsoft Type Cover features a magnetically attached keyboard that folds over the screen to double as a cover for your tablet. The pen works in conjunction with the tablet's digitiser to turn it into an art and design workstation.
