Carrying on from our awesome and informative article about Microsoft’s latest salvo, the 2015 lineup of Microsoft Surface Pro 4 2-in-1 tablets (you really should read the article!), let’s introduce you to the big boy of the lot, the Surface Pro 4 i7 variant.

It is the most expensive, and of course, the most powerful of the trio of crossover tablets released by Microsoft in October 2015.

Like all other versions (the Surface Pro 4 m3 and our favourite, the Surface Pro 4 i5), the i7 packs the sixth generation of Intel’s Core processors; this is now a Skylake setup that replaces the Surface Pro 3’s Haswell lineup.
The i7 also gets the extremely capable Intel Iris 540 graphics processor and 8 or 16 GB of RAM, depending on what you prefer.

The i7 delivers about 10% raw performance boost over the i5 model and a 30-40% boost over the m3 model.

On the storage front, you get 256 GB of internal solid state storage (SSD) if you go for the Core i7 variant.
Microsoft has been benevolent enough to also include a microSD slot, which allows you to expand storage by another 256 GB!

This is an impressive spec sheet by all means. And it delivers! The Surface Pro 4 (i7) handles pretty much everything you can throw at it. From superbly high-definition movies, to heavy duty games, photo editing, document creation, annotation, video calls, HD video streaming… this awesome tablet does it all.

While the Surface Pro 4 has an energy efficient processor which is supported by more streamlined software (with more infrequent loops and twirls), the tablet still needs over two and half hours to fully recharge. Which is when you miss fast charging on this particular range of tablets.
So plan ahead if you’re planning a trip.

Should you get it then? Yes. If you want to do some really intensive stuff in a lounge chair or at your office desk. This version is mainly intended for power users who can make use of the extra GPU power provided by the Iris 540 over the HD 520.
But, if you’re not planning to do architectural stuff, and are not a professional gamer, then the Surface Pro 4 (i5) would suffice very well too!
