Microsoft has finally unveiled the Surface Pro 4 and it is a powerhouse of a device. Gizmodo explains that the new table hybrid has Microsoft's G5 chipset, which makes it 30 percent faster than the SP3 and 50 percent faster than the Macbook Air.

Depending on their need, users can choose between six variants of the Surface Pro 4. The several configuration have differing processors, storage and RAM.

Microsoft has outfitted the new tablet hybrid with 6th Gen Intel Skylake Core M, i5 and i7 chips, adding to its power. At its optimum best, the SP4 can come with 1TB of SSD storage and 16GB of RAM, making it as powerful as any ultrabook out on the market, notes The Verge.

Below are the six available configurations for the Surface Pro 4, along with their respective prices, as listed by Tech Radar:

  • 128 GB 6th Generation Intel® CoreTM M3 with 4 GB of RAM $899 ERP
  • 128 GB 6th Generation Intel® CoreTM i5 with 4 GB of RAM $999 ERP
  • 256 GB 6th Generation Intel® CoreTM i5 with 8 GB of RAM $1,299 ERP
  • 256 GB 6th Generation Intel® CoreTM i7 with 8 GB of RAM $1,599 ERP
  • 256 GB 6th Generation Intel® CoreTM i7 with 16 GB of RAM $1,799 ERP
  • 512 GB 6th Generation Intel® CoreTM i7 with 16 GB of RAM $2,199 ERP

Microsoft's upgraded Surface Pro 4 is also as formidable on the outside as it is on the inside. The tech company has made some slight changes to the overall look of the tablet, which have been well received.

For instance, the hybrid tablet maintains its sleek and travel-friendly size of 12 inches, while fitting in a new 12.3-inch screen display, reports The Verge. In addition, the screen is fortified with 0.4mm- thick Gorilla Glass, making it both durable and the best natural touchscreen on the market.

To go with the upgrades of the SP4, Microsoft also enhanced its accessories. Gizmodo reports that the new Surface Pen is believed to have a year-long battery life and can be stored with a magnetic dock.

In addition, the new pen comes with interchangeable tips, which each have different sensitivity levels. Users can now decide between different pen styles like pencil, felt tip or ballpoint.

Microsoft also introduced a new and improved keyboard cover to go along with the Surface Pro 4. Trusted Reviews explains that the new trackpad on the new keyboard has a 40 percent larger surface area.

Apart from these innovation, the tech giant also integrated a new 5-point multi-touch system, which is yet to be explained. Additionally the cover has a back-lit keyboard with lighter and quieter keys.

The Surface Pro 4 will be released on October 27, 2016. However, fans can preorder the device starting October 7, 2015.
