Hey guys, what’s up y’all here to unboxing, the Microsoft Surface Pro for NES, the latest tablet from Microsoft, and it retails for $900. Or at least the Base model does, which I got here. Now this Base model has 128 gigabytes of storage, an Intel Core and three processor, and four gigabytes of RAM. Now think about that is that that’s going to be good enough for students, or just people looking for a nice laptop that will handle kind of most things, most daily things thrown at them.
So this isn’t gonna be like this for business professionals, It’s going to be for, you know, average people, and people like me looking for a laptop for school. But let’s go ahead and open this here, kind of remove that tab. And this opens up like so. And you’re going to be greeted with the surface itself here, which we pull out, let’s see, if we pull this out. I know, there’s like no tab on here, okay, I couldn’t see that. Whoops, here we go. This is the surface, it is light, I think it’s like 1.7 pounds or something like that, which is very nice. I know, that’s like half the weight of the Surface Book, which we did already on box.
But I here’s the pattern, it’s kind of the same one that we get with the Surface Book. So it’s the latest pen from them. And then we’re gonna get a little booklet here with all of the documentation and just things that you should know about the tablet before you get started. But yeah, I mean, that’s that. Then here on the right hand side, we’re going to get a box with the actual cable here to charge the tablet. We do still get that magnetic charger, which I really liked for the surface. It’s very easy to use, and just plug that right in to charge it. And here is the new surface. I mean, it feels light really premium in the hand. It’s just really nice to hold. You have all the grills here so that you know the surface can breathe.
We got the USB. On this side right here we got the display Port, I believe, an SD card, you know, that’s the charger right there. So you can connect the charger. And we have the sleep awake and the volume up and volume down buttons right there. So it’s a lot like the top half of the Surface Book. And now let’s go ahead and open up the new keyboard to see what that’s like, I got the black one, because I just think it looks really nice with the magnesium from the surface. And this should be straightforward to open, we got two little tabs right here. All right off.
America, we got the surface keyboard right here. And then of course, what It’s famous for, it just attaches like so. And we got the kickstand right here, which you can’t see because the cameras off focus. So I’ll show you right there, the kickstand just comes out like so you just kind of pull it out from the side right here. And you of course have a big angle this time around. So you can use this a lot of different modes. Let’s go ahead and put it right there. Then the keyboard just comes off like so you’re gonna get this little kind of space under the keyboard, which is going to make a flex a little bit when you type, but it’s not too bad. If you use the surface, you’re going to be used to anything like this, but it definitely feels solid.
The keys do feel very nice and clicky, which is nice. So it feels like an actual keyboard on an actual laptop. Then the trackpad definitely right away does feel really good. Let’s go ahead and boot this up to just kind of, you know, get the actual feeling of the surface here. This is running Windows 10 Pro, which is nice. We do have a five megapixel camera on the front and an eight megapixel camera on the back. Now the back has 10 ADP HD recording. And the front has just like regular HD recording from what I know. But here, we can just go ahead and set this guy up. Of course, if you wanted to, you can do a full setup. With the touchscreen to fold this back.
And kind of hold that like that, you know, you’re going to click on the keys, which isn’t good, but I think I clicked on something that was wrong. I clicked on the wrong language. Whoops. Let’s flip it back. Alright, so I was able to just reset the guy and just restart the setup process, but switch everything around. So you guys can see this a little bit better. Now because you didn’t know how to restart this guy at the go with the power button and volume down button the same time so shut off and restart it. But here’s the setup process for the pen. So just in Case you want to see that we have to hold this for five seconds. And it’s the same thing with the Surface Book. We just hold it. And I think right about now we let it go.
You can see on this side. There’s like just it’s just flat and that’s that I can stick to the surface and the Surface Book and it sticks on there really nicely. It’s not going to fall off very easily. And let me click on this guy again. There we go pairing successful. You can see that with one click you get one no double click screenshot. Click and hold To activate Cortana, and it doesn’t come installed with OneNote. So you have to install that, you set this guy up. Now we’re going to have go ahead here and connect to Wi Fi. Alright, we’re going to go ahead and use Express settings here. And it’s going to go ahead and check for updates. And then it’s going to ask me to like make a pin and sign into my outlook. So I’m going to go ahead and do all those things. Alright, guys. I’ve gone ahead and set up the surface here. So you guys can kind of see it in its full glory.
Of course, we have the Surface Pen right here, which is magnetically attaches there, we can click once. And it’s going to launch one note, which is very nice. So we can just go ahead and fullscreen this. Let’s say we don’t want to use the keyboard anymore. So we can just lift this guy up from here and put it to one side. Then we can take the stand here and open it up, you kind of got to use two hands for this one right here. And then you pull it out like so. Then you got your note taking device right here. You of course have really good palm rejection on these guys. So anything you kind of go ahead and draw, it’s going to dry up very nicely. So you’re not going to have problems.
If you like to draw and, you know, do handheld notes, and this is going to work, you of course are going to still get that kind of you know, you can’t move your hand through the screen, because you can kind of kind of just like sticks to the screen. So that’s not great. But if you can look past that, then you’re gonna get some really nice, you know, notes and designs and things. So that’s kind of cool. And I’ve always really found it kind of fun to kind of be able to draw on your, on your computer, and then you know, have your tablet ready to go, you know, this kind of weird hybrid, I always thought surface has been really good at that it’s probably the best in the market right now.
It’s very simple to use, you’re done with this, you’re done with that you close it up, then you can put this guy in your backpack or you know, in your messenger bag. And you got that protector right there. And it looks really good. It’s definitely light, it is definitely a lot lighter than I expected it to be, I believe it’s heavier than the surface three. But then again, it’s a lot more powerful to you get the camera back here, you got a USB Port right there, the charger right here, and a Mini DisplayPort. I believe that is right there. And there’s nothing on this side except for the headphone jack right there. So that’s pretty much what to expect here.
And I didn’t mention, you got the Glock and the volume up and volume down right on top of the tablet. But yeah, everything looks good. Everything works. And yeah, so I’m really excited, I’m going to use this one I’m going to try it out. When we compare it a little bit more to the Surface Book, which we got right here, you can kind of see the size difference here, which is insane how much bigger the Surface Book is to the Surface Pro four. So if you’re looking for a Portable device, the Surface Book right away is definitely not the way to go. This thing is a ton 10 times heavier.
And just just to show you guys here, let’s show you the the mechanism here for detaching this guy. So let’s go ahead and open this here, I had already flipped the screen, but you left this guy up. And it does have to be charged to a certain Point, you can’t do this when the battery’s dead on both. So you got a battery on here, you got a battery on there, we click this button, you’re gonna hear that you can hear the mechanism on lock and then you can pull it up. Now here the thing is, you can see it didn’t completely go off. half the time that I’ve done it, it just doesn’t work. There you got an iPad.
It doesn’t work every single time. So I either got to get the hang of it, or it just doesn’t work it should. And this tablet is extremely light here. This is, light, it’s much lighter than the surface, especially since it’s so much bigger, you kind of feel that it’s even lighter. So this is a very nice tablet. But of course it’s not useful in many ways. Like you’re not really going to watch a movie like this. And it’s not very good for drawing because it’s so much bigger than the surface. But you know, we’ll see we’re going to try both these devices out. And we’ll catch you guys in the next one. Goodbye.
