    Surface pro is a good convertible device but not too powerful for long usage, it mean surface pro is good for travelling only for the portability, right?

    i disagree. depending on what you use computers for and the configurations you get, the surface pro can be your primary and only device.

    it being portable doesn't necessarily mean a correlation to its capabilities.

    Not sure how you figure it's not too powerful. You can get up to i7 with 16G of RAM. That's pretty powerful in my book. It's not a high end gaming computer, but it's equally powerful to what I use for work or home.

    If you look at the specs - i5 or i7, 8gb or 16gb, 256 SSD to 1 TB SSD, there's nothing "weak" about the Surface Pro. It's going to perform the same as say an HP Spectre 360 or a Dell XPS 13 assuming you load it with the same specs. The major differences are form factor and pen capabilities.

    It's as powerful as most laptops.

    Yeah, the Surface Pro will be my primary machine. I'm selling one of my Surface Pro 4 i7/8GB/256GB machines and replacing it with the new Surface Pro with i7/8GB/256GB.

    I still technically have the Acer S7, Dell XPS13, and Surface Pro 2 with i5/8GB/512GB. My laptops are pretty much relegated to long haul usage (like long plane trips).

    And that's in addition to my desktop machines (AMD Ryzen 1800X with 16 GB, Intel i7-6700K, and AMD FX-8350) though my desktops are strictly for video and audio editing as well as PC gaming (though most of my gaming is on my Xbox One S and soon-to-be Xbox One X).
