Far ahead than this mobile os. I had mini 2 but to tell you that this only for kid for watching video and playing game. High price low usability. By the way this is made for rich no brain people.

Too heavy/big for long use, no good apps to consume information easily, lesser batteries, not very touch friendly. You basically enter a dark realm of bad usability by using a Surface pro as a tablet, like a throwback to 2000s
As a laptop it's much better (much better software), but even there is beat handily by real ultrabooks. So -yeah- microsoft's idea is not very good apart from some inch uses. In everything else you're better off with either a real tablet or a real laptop...

In our country there are only few store selling their products. No advertisement on tv and radio, news paper, poster and kind. Sometime if i tell people, they dont believe it is exist.
blue.sun, 25 Feb 2017Maybe better, but none of them as universal to use, as Surface Pro 4...It's not universal. Too heavy for tablet use (which is why most use it as laptop), too bad for laptop (low autonomy, bad keyboard by comparison, small screen for the size).
If the surface line wants to get universal, they have to somehow go up to 13 inch (which is the minimum for productivity) and lose about 300 grams (~1 libre is the maximum for long tablet use) ... oh and also gain about 3-4 hours of autonomy.
The surface line was never something it was a compromise, a mediocre tablet, a mediocre utrabook, for the priCE of an excellent tablet + excellent ultrabook. It was never a tenable product. Basically why despite being so many years in the markets cannot even come close to ipads or even Samsung tabs in unit sales ... people get that it is mostly a gimmick.
The rumour is 3:2 for iPad 10.5
Also 16:9 is terrible for tablet use as it eliminates portrait use (too wide to be used in protrait), which is why no android OEM ever used it. Most use 16:10 (much more square looking than 16:9), or 4:3 (way too square to the point that it kills media watching).
The best of course is 3:2, what surface pro uses, what Google pixel uses and what iPad 10.5 would use. As it can both be used in protrait and landscape for movies... It's the best compromise for years now...

But since this rumour points to a 10.5 inch screen I hope they are making a jump to a 16:9 ratio with QHD (2560*1440) resolution like the one on the Tab S 10.5 inch.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2017Light years better you may say.If you like your tablet to weigh a metric tonne, sure. If not iPad weighs half and it's better for content consumption (the basic reason to buy a tablet in the first place). For content creation Dell XPS 13 is better than both (by far). Better battery, better keyboard, speedier ... in general only a fool buys into Microsoft's hype, there are clearly better products on both ends of the spectrum.

Anonymous, 24 Feb 2017MY GOODNESS !!! if you lunch an ipad 9.7 inch with an outdated processor i will never buy it !... morewhat are you smoking? they are releasing a 10.5 inch one which will have the same size as the 9.7 inch one but with smaller bezels.
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2017What does "9.7Â” entry-level iPad with A9 CPU" mean? Don't we already have a 9.7 ipad pro?I heard rumors that it will be the same with little upgrades like slightly higher CPU and GPU clock speed, new camera bump (from iPhone 7, the current one has a iPhone 6/s camera bump) and things like that.

I was simply referring to the ease of doing some typing using a mouse, which is possible on an android tablet but not an iPad.
