There is no dearth of ardent Apple fans as well as Windows aficionados who will be rooting for the iPad Pro or the Surface Pro 4 devices.
Apple last month launched its iPad Pro and Microsoft yesterday brought out the Surface Pro 4 to rival the competition in the markets. Its Surface Pro lineup has always been well received, and as noted by The Verge, the company’s last quarter saw Surface sales bringing in $888 million in revenue.
Furthermore, this time around the company has delivered a “more powerful version,” which is comparatively sleeker, lighter and bigger than its predecessor, without putting on the weight.
As for Apple, the iPad Pro didn’t disappoint either and arrived with some great features in Apple’s trademark design.
Here’s a low-down on the specs of the two tablets to get a better perspective on what each would deliver and probably make the decision to snag one, much easier:

2. There is no beating the iPad Pro in the sleekness department with it being just 6.9mm thick and weighing no more than 723g. The Surface Pro 4 with 8.45mm thickness weighs no more than 786g.
4. The storage options on Pro 4 include 128GB, 256GB and 512GB, gaining a major up on the iPad Pro currently available with 32GB and 128GB storage options.
5. As for the snappers on both the devices, the iPad Pro has an 8MP iSight camera on the back with 1080p video capturing at 30fps and the Pro 4 also has an 8MP back-end snapper. The front-facing camera is a 5MP one for Surface Pro 4, while iPad Pro has a 1.2MP FaceTime camera.
