Microsoft has just revealed a new “signature” Surface Type Cover today and its main point isn’t so much its better build, but the luxurious Alcantara material that’s coating its surface.
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.

Microsoft‘s much anticipated new Surface products, the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4, launched to a myriad of complaints from users who were receiving a less than satisfactory experience with it. Many, ourselves included, felt that Microsoft shipped an unfinished product. From what we gathered, it isn’t the hardware that the Surface users are unhappy about, rather it was the software implementation that let the devices down.
What’s worse, Microsoft’s “solution” to the problem was an apology on their forums which only served to irk more users. Now though, they seem to have actually come up with a solution to at least one of their problems.

If you currently own a Surface Pro 4 or a Surface Book, you’ve probably felt all the gripes that owners worldwide are experiencing, ranging from power and battery issues, flickering screens and impromptu Windows reboots.
These issues cropping up are a follow-up to the shambles that was Microsoft’s style of dealing with its angry OneDrive customers, that showed that their customer service approach has a lot of refining to be done and this time, it seems like deja vu all over again.
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.
If you’re anticipating something big from Microsoft, mark your calendars on 6th October. They will be having an event in New York City promising to share something interesting about Windows 10 devices. Without hinting on actual products, it is safe to assume that Microsoft would be unveiling its latest Surface Pro 4 as well as its new flagship Lumia 950/950 XL. They are quite a huge deal as Microsoft’s first devices with Windows 10 running fresh out of the box.
Earlier, we spoke about the purported Lumia models’ names – the Lumia 940 XL (aka Lumia 950 XL) and the Lumia 940 (aka Lumia 950), along with their spec sheet but today fresh murmurs have indicated that the 19th of October is the date of the grand Microsoft revealing – that’ll probably see the Surface Pro 4 also making an appearance.
