    If you think about the different devices which are on the market right now, is it still worth buying a 2 year old surface pro 4?

    Yes but I wouldnt pay full price, id wait for any deals including bundle deals. I bought mine 6 weeks ago and love it, but had to get the bundle deal first just because I wasnt sure if and when a surface pro 5 would be coming

    I'd wait few weeks when the Surface Pro 5 might be announced in the next hardware event and then make the decision between them.

    If you can get a deal, go for it. Still a great device.

    As others have already said: if you get a good deal, go for it. I am more than happy with mine and I just bought one for my wife two months ago. There was a nice deal with price reduction and free type cover on german MS online shop.

    Depends on you.

    For me? Nooope! But that's because I have different taste.

    Will it perform as well as a desktop? No, desktops usually don't have the power, space and thermal constraints of a portable but that depends on the desktop you're comparing it to.

    I'd rather just save up and buy the new Surface Pro. But those devices are expensive though. Hmnnn...

    Would the Surface Pro 4 be a good replacement for an older laptop?

    That still depends on whether a slim, well-designed, pen-enabled, impossible-to-service tablet with the capabilities of an ultrabook is what you're looking for in an older laptop replacement.

    One answer is to just say yes, the other answer requires figuring out whether the Pro 4, for a given price, is what you want. Display may be smaller, it'll certainly be more compact, etc.

    I normally use my computer for surfing the web, Microsoft Word, some gaming here and there, etc. Based on your answer, I'm sure I would be just fine with a Surface. The only problem is the price.

    If price is an issue, what'd I'd do is figure out whether you really want a tablet form-factor or not in this case. There are cheaper options if so. If you're fine with a conventional laptop then you're rolling in options.

    Whats the heaviest game you plan to play? Planetside 2 and other fancy games aren't ideal on any Surface. (except maybe the Book with the Performance Base but thats expensive!)
