#Microsoft #SurfacePro5 – Microsoft Surface Pro 5: Here’s Why It’s Definitely Worth The Wait : With Black Friday right around the corner, you can bet there will be plenty of exciting discounts and deals involving Microsoft Corporation’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) leading Surface devices, including the current-generation Surface Pro. However, the Redmond-based tech giant is tipped to roll out its next-generation Surface Pro during early 2017 which will make it difficult for users to avail such upcoming deals for the current Surface Pro.
Users have two options: either to purchase a Surface Pro 4 at a discounted price during the holiday season or to wait for Microsoft to roll out its next-gen Surface Pro, dubbed the Surface Pro 5. If you are torn between purchasing Microsoft’s most powerful 2-in-1 device or wait a few more months for its succeeding model, we are here to make your life a bit easier. Here is a quick review of all the pros and cons of waiting for the new Surface Pro.
Why you should wait: There is no doubting the fact that the current-generation Surface Pro is one of the most powerful 2-in-1 device available in the market. However, the next-generation Surface Pro is expected to be more advanced than its predecessor in every way possible. For starters, the Surface Pro 5 should arrive with the latest-generation of Intel processing chipset, the Intel Kaby Lake. The arrival of Intel’s seventh-gen processor will not only ensure faster processing speeds for the Surface Pro 5, it will also ensure efficient power usage from the device. Also, Microsoft is tipped to launch its next big software update for Windows 10 (Redstone 2) with the Surface Pro 5 which will represent another significant performance booster for the upcoming device. Finally, Microsoft has already patented a new Surface Pen which can charge directly from a port incorporated in its compatible device. There are high chances that we will witness such a Surface Pen on the upcoming Surface Pro 5.
Why you shouldn’t: Despite its few limitations, the current generation Surface Pro is still a highly powerful 2-in-1 device which can go toe-to-toe with its rivals. Also, a heavily discounted Surface Pro can make an excellent gift for your family, friends or loved ones. The Surface Pro 4 doesn’t come cheap, but that will change once the Black Friday sale officially kicks off. However, such discounted prices only last for so long which is why you could be forgiven for going for a device that is on the verge of becoming outdated with the arrival of its succeeding model.
