Surface Pro 4 and accessories Dimensions and Surface Pro 3 is exactly the same, the vast majority of them have attachments can all be reused, the interface is exactly the same, including the charger, docking station and keyboard cover can be both It can be inter operable between 3 and 4. In the design also follows the stent distraction, and then it can be placed flat on the table in the form of different angles. And the appearance of the previous generation of the biggest difference is that the previous generation of keyboard lid and body are written above the Surface, the Surface Pro 4 is directly engraved with Microsoft’s field card logo, above the type cover is printed the text of Microsoft logo.
Location hosts the power button and volume keys are changed: inside the volume keys are on the left side of the screen, and the power button is located on the top of the screen.
Surface Pro 4 removes the right edge of the screen Windows key, because the keys are introduced with Windows8 and 8.1, then you must swipe exhaled Start menu. However, in Windows 10 there, because the Start menu and Start screen has been together, there is no need to do so, and it is always triggered inadvertently, so Surface specially developed a Metro App to help you disable this button, the new version will simply Direct removed.
Charger features and specifications have not changed, still carrying a USB charging port, two-way plug, but one end into a power outlet is really an inexpensive temperament blowing.
Good improvement is the stylus. Now it is possible magnetic attraction, and this is very strong adsorption of magnetic force. Magnet located on the pen, so this pen can be adsorbed to any of the above substances iron, also includes Surface Pro3.4 pen on 3 is completely used. The difference is that their appearance 3 pen has two buttons located on the pen, where the upper one eraser, below the equivalent of the right mouse button, because where there is functional overlap, now put it cancel the eraser pen located top, but also pairing button. Press and hold the button to turn on Bluetooth or so about ten seconds, there is a light will flash pen top. This time it can complete the pairing with the computer.
Before pairing is only as pointing the pen tool, then fit it into a pressure-sensitive pen. OneNote notes on when you can clearly feel the intensity of the force when the pen is light or heavy. N-trig after being acquired by Microsoft technology has been improved in three of time for it, because it is not a pressure sensitive pen of 1024, as compared with iPad Pro technologies may be a certain gap, and Apple’s Apple Pencil was just it is the choice of pressure sensitive 1024, so Pro3 at this point is slightly inferior. But time has caught up 4 1024, now with Apple Pencil belong to the same level. But more unfortunately, because they support pressure sensitivity 1024 SP4 also requires host hardware support, so the pen 4 on 3 machines is still no sense of pressure of the 1024’s.
Keyboard cover change becomes more apparent, we can see that the new version of the keyboard cover is more out PrtScn this button, the legacy is no screenshots keys. Accordingly, the legacy of shared key (located on F7) now has basically abandoned the enemy, so it was canceled. More importantly, Fn function key from now on the right side of the spacebar moved to the left. So you press a function key Fn plus the above is very laborious, and now will save a little bit of energy. Now Fn key on the left next to Ctrl, Fn keys belonging to the original position – that is, the right Alt and the arrow keys in the middle now become a menu button, right-click to bring up the menu equivalent.
Track pad is made of glass fiber material 3 into a glass, it feels smoother.
