The tablet that can replace your laptop gets thinner, lighter and faster

Bangkok, 18 November 2015 – Today, Microsoft announced the retail availability for the Surface Pro 4 throughout Thailand from November 19th, 2015. The newest addition to the Surface line-up, the Surface Pro 4, has taken what people loved about the Surface Pro 3 and made it better, packing more power and performance into the thinnest, lightest Surface yet. The Surface Pro 4 is designed to bring out the best in Windows 10, and is a perfect fit for the built-in Windows 10 experience, which includes fast and secure login with Windows Hello, seamless transition between Tablet Mode and Desktop Mode with Continuum, and improved touch and pen experiences. Customers in Thailand can buy the Surface Pro 4 Intel® Core m, Core i5, and Core i7 models at IT City, Banana IT and PowerBuy stores nationwide.

At the launch event, held at E88, W-District Community Mall, press were joined by internationally-known orchestral conductor, Bundit Ungrangsee, and Thai born graphic illustrator, Pomme Chan, to demonstrate the power of the Surface Pro 4 and how it can be utilized for creative purposes. The unique performance combined an orchestral concert from Bundit Ugrangsee, with the aesthetically beautiful artwork designs created by Pomme Chan, both performed simultaneously on Surface Pro 4 for guests.

Surface Pro 4: Thinner, Lighter and More Powerful

At only 8.4 mm thin, the Surface Pro 4 features Windows 10 Pro, a stunning 12.3-inch PixelSense Display and 6th Generation Intel® Core m, Core i5, and Core i7 processors, enabling everyone from students to professionals to get more done on-the-go. The Surface Pro 4 is not only 30 percent more powerful than the Surface Pro 3 but it is also quieter, runs cooler and is even more efficient with up to nine hours of battery life[1].

The Surface Pro 4 is perfect for people who place a focus on portability, yet require more productivity and performance out of their devices – mobile professionals or people in business environments who need high levels of corporate access, data security and central manageability. All of this is available to consumers from 33,900 baht.

“The Surface Pro 4 brings together the performance of a laptop and the full power of Windows 10 with the portability of tablet” said Ekaraj Panjavinin, Consumer Channel Group Lead, Microsoft (Thailand) “Surface has transformed the category by focusing on productivity, creating a highly versatile device that people love to use. One of Microsoft’s key ambitions is to create more personal computing; the Surface Pro 4 runs on Windows 10 – Microsoft’s most intuitive and naturally interactive interface yet. These experiences are important to Microsoft, which recognizes that as we surround ourselves with multiple devices, we crave one experience across all of our technology,” added Ekaraj.

International Symphonic Conductor, Bundit Ungrangsee, comments, “The Surface Pro 4 provides me with the level of convenience I need as a conductor and a coach. The Surface Pen lets me quickly jot down notes and I no longer have to carry around stacks of music sheets, instead I store them all on this one device and have it with me around the world. One day, I would like to see my vision of a paperless orchestra brought to life! It’s a pleasure to join Microsoft to celebrate the launch of this forward-thinking technology, here in Thailand.”

Graphic designer and social influencer, Pomme Chan, says “As an avid photographer, professional illustrator and businesswoman, it’s fantastic to find a device which is versatile enough to fulfill all of my diverse requirements. I use the built-in 8MP camera to take pictures for inspiration almost every day, but most of all, I find myself using the Surface Pen feature to create digital designs and illustrations; I was surprised to learn that the pen recognizes up to 1,024 levels of pressure, so I can finally draw digitally with high levels of precision and accuracy.”

“We are very excited to introduce the Surface Pro 4 to our fans and customers in Thailand. The Surface Pro 4 is built from the success of the Surface Pro 3, which is globally admired, receiving universally positive feedback. With its appearance, battery efficiency, newly redesigned keyboard and Surface Pen, the new Surface Pro 4 can deliver an undeniably exceptional performance. Also, with the Surface Pro 4 running on the most secure Windows 10, Microsoft is bringing the most powerful and versatile hardware and platform together to help users power through everything they need to do,” said Rachod Isarankura Na Ayuthaya, Windows and Surface Client Business Group Lead, Microsoft (Thailand).  In addition to its unique 2-in-1 hardware, the Surface Pro 4 is incredibly efficient as it runs on the new Microsoft Windows 10 platform. Apps and desktop programs, such as Office 2016, can run side-by-side, allowing users to switch seamlessly from task-to-task,” added Rachod.

New Surface accessories, such as the new and improved Surface Pro 4 Type Cover[2], take Surface Pro 4 from tablet to laptop in an instant and feature a redesigned mechanical keyboard with optimal key spacing for fast and fluid typing.  In addition, the redesigned Surface Pen recognizes 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity, letting you write, draw and mark documents with precision ink on one end and an eraser on the other.
