The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 has been called either the best or one of the best technology products of 2015 by many sources. The Gospel Herald is one of the websites that lists Microsoft's latest tablet/laptop hybrid as one of 2015's best.

"It looks like Microsoft has finally managed to make an iPad killer with this year's version of the Surface. The 2-in-1 tablet/PC was in huge demand over the holiday season, and it wasn't difficult to see why."

The Sunday Express has given the Surface Pro 4 a five-star rating.

"Microsoft has always claimed its Surface Pro tablets were good enough to replace your laptop.The Surface Pro 3 proved that to be true, but the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is the first tablet you'll actually want to replace your laptop."

It appears that consumers in India will be able to purchase the Surface Pro 4 very soon. The Times of India has the news.

"Microsoft's newest tablet Surface Pro 4 is all set for its India debut. The company has sent invites for an event on January 7 where it is expected to launch the tablet."

Microsoft's Surface Book, a first generation device, has produced more problems than the Surface Pro 4. Some of those problems include detaching the "clipboard" screen from the keyboard, screen flickering (which has been fixed with the latest update), and trackpad problems.

According to ExtremeTech, Microsoft has acknowledged general problems with both the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4. They have suggested that for one of the issues (the "Sleep" mode doesn't work properly and drains the battery), users should put their devices on "Standby" instead. Microsoft assures they are working on fixes for all of the bugs, but hasn't given consumers a timetable yet on when the problems will be fixed. It's quite obvious, however, that Surface Book users are more affected by the bugs than the Surface Pro 4.
