When you step in the shoes that were once filled by Bill Gates, you better hope that you fulfill your role. Steve Ballmer unfortunately took upon the intimidating task and his reign lasted a good 13 years. A robust character, Ballmer excelled in his early days but by 2012 stock prices were idling too long and that ensued criticism of dropping everything that he had managed to achieve. Many have speculated that the failure of Surface RT tablet was the last straw for Microsoft’s overseeing board of directors, with a US$ 900 million write off being a mistake that couldn’t go unnoticed.
Two years after Ballmer’s retirement, Satya Nadella has filled some big shoes and it has been an upward journey so far. Akin to Ballmer, the Surface Pro 4 sits in a precarious position as it has never been easy living up to your past successes.

The Surface Pro 4 is Microsoft’s latest tablet that could replace your laptop. Now in its 4th generation, the productivity tablet with Windows 10 has finally arrived in Malaysia with a starting price of RM3,999.
UPDATE: Lazada has changed their “what’s in the box” column to include the 4th generation Surface Pen.
The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is the ultimate tablet that can replace your laptop, which is now thinner, lighter and more powerful than ever. Targeted for November release, you can secure yours today by placing a pre-order on Lazada.
With our weakening Malaysian Ringgit, the Surface Pro 4 costs more than its predecessor from RM3,999. That’s more expensive than last year’s Surface Pro 3 that’s priced starting from RM2,729.
Marking the fourth generation Microsoft’s brainchild has come a long way, from their original Surface Pro that ran Windows 8 upon its revealing. A leap forward for all laptops/tablets for sure, the ultra-productivity machine is back again and it’ll hit Malaysia just in the time for the year-end shopping season.
The tablet is normally seen as a media consumption device and nobody has done productivity better than Microsoft’s Surface Pro series. The new Surface Pro 4 marks its 4th generation of its 2-in-1 tablet/laptop convergence device and it runs on the very latest Windows 10.
The current Surface Pro 3 to us is a breakthrough as it offers a full Windows experience in a true tablet form. It did live up to its “Tablet that could replace your Laptop” claim and the new one just raises the bar to a whole new level.
