    Hey guys,

    I wanna buy a surface pro 4 but need help rationalizing the purchase. I already have a desktop that I do my development on and other tablets, laptops, phones etc.

    Those of you who have a previous surface pro, what extra does it bring to the table? Tangible or not. Why do you prefer the surface pro over your other devices?

    I know this is an open ended questions but I'm hoping yall can give me some reasons to rationalize the purchase to myself. I appreciate the feedback!

    If you are looking to save costs, then you don't need to get the Surface, there are plenty of other Windows devices at a lower cost than Surface.

    Since you have a desktop for anything that requires the computing power, it could be enough for you to just get a simple Windows tablet with an Atom inside instead of a full on i CPU.

    One device I recommend is Dell Venue 11 Pro 5130.

    Even though it is not as powerful as a Surface Pro 4, it is still powerful enough for a basic office suite work, as well as Web browing and media consumption. Also, since the Atom processor sips electricity compared to i processors found in Surface tablets, it would have an awesome battery life.

    However, if you do need the power of a Surface Pro 4, then it will be good for you. You just need to know what you are going to use it for.
