    I really like to use my Surface Pro 4 as a tablet. But you know, I use it as a PC more than a tablet. I believe that Surface RT, Surface 2 and Surface 3 are tablets, not Surface Pro devices. There's some reasons for that:

    1- Surface Pro 4 is much bigger than a tablet in screen size. So I feel more comfortable with Surface 3 screen size.

    2- Surface Pro is heavy at 780gr.

    3- And the most important is I type with it more than I type with every other device. So tablet mode is not suitable for my usage.

    4- Still softwares are not compatible with touch gestures. Such as Photoshop, 3Ds MAX and other... which I work with most of the time.

    5- Generally "Tablet", doesn't have mobility like a Phone.


    But after all, still I think an I believe that Surface Pro surly is better than every iPad or Android tablet. Because they're only big screen mobile phones. Beside that, Surface 3 is the best if you seek for a real tablet, not Surface Pro.

    Do you put on your keyboard and use it as a Lapp or leave it off and use it as a Tablet?

    I use mine 90% as a Tablet 10% as a Lapp.y.
    Personally I'd say 70% tablet, as I do quite a lot of reading and browsing or Netflix by the evening. And then I write some things on the move, some emails, so 90% as a laptop.

    I don't have a Surface Pro but on similar devices I use maybe 50/50 laptop/tablet. I don't think I'd use the Surface Pro that much as a tablet as 12" is way too big for tablet use. I prefer 10" for tablet use.

    I'm a pretty even split. 2 in 1 is working great for me. My wife uses hers as 98% laptop. Might try to talk her into letting me get her a Surface laptop.

    Mainly using it as notebook, will use as a tablet when there's SwiftKey support.

    I use mostly as a Tablet, rather than a fully operated laptop.

    Desktop most the time at home. If I go somewhere I take my bluetooth keyboard and mouse. If I am using it on a flat surface away from home I prefer having it lay flat with the keyboard set past the screen for typing. I can type, draw with pen, use mouse for clicking - all at the same time. I have used in in laptop form in the past, but not lately.
