Microsoft Surface Pro
My kids are all in Middle School this year, and technology is being integrated into the classrooms more frequently. Some of their classes no longer use physical textbooks, they rely on online books, courses, and websites for curriculum. We are fortunate that we have a “hand me down” computer at home for the three boys to share to do homework, research, and if they have enough time, play games on. We are noticing though that the amount of time they spend on the computer each night is increasing as they get older, and we will soon be at a point where just one “child’s” computer won’t be sufficient. We aren’t quite ready to make the leap in getting them each their own PC or laptop, so we’ve been looking into other options. Since we are on the go so often at sporting events, practices, and other school activities, something they can use on the go has a lot of appeal. We’ve been doing quite a bit of research on this, and have narrowed it down to two choices. The Microsoft Surface Pro is one of those. We really like that they can take it with them when we are on the go, it’s small and compact to fit in their backpack, and it’s lightweight so it won’t weigh them down.

We found this great deal of the Microsoft Surface Pro in the Microsoft Store. When we began to do our research, we were thinking about a laptop, but had some reservations about that. We wanted something more portable, but also something that had enough power and memory to be able to handle all of the programs and needs that we anticipate the kids having over the next few years. With the oldest child entering high school next year, we want to plan ahead for his needs. These are a few of our favorite features:
- 6th Gen Intel Core i5, 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM
- 12.3-inch PixelSense touchscreen display
- Surface Pen included
- Compatible with Surface Dial
- Surface Pro 4 is ultrathin, fast, and versatile, the perfect balance of portability and power.
- Surface Pro 4 is meticulously crafted to be a powerful, ultrathin laptop – or a beautiful tablet that can stand on its own.
- Simply connect your Surface Pro 4 to Surface Dock and use up to two high-resolution monitors, a full keyboard, mouse, and any other accessories.
- Collaborate with your classmates with the full power of the latest Microsoft Office Suite3, including Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote. Log in to your Surface with enterprise-grade facial recognition technology, giving each member of your family their own secured profile. Plus, Windows stays up to date giving you the latest protection and features. – PERFECT for school projects and assignments!!!
- Surface Pen has 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity and an eraser on the other end. Just flip it around and erase your Surface Pen strokes like you would with a regular pencil.
