Do not be fooled by the shape of the Surface Pro, although it looks like a Tablet like any other, it is not, it is a small computer with i5 processor that brings including 4 gigabytes in RAM and lets you choose between a solid state disk 64 or 128 Gigas, perfect for installing your favorite digital illustration programs.
As for the screen, the Surface Pro gives us a screen of 10.6 inches HD, this gives us a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Because of the size and the high resolution of this screen, many elements like the Photoshop menus are very small, although it is annoying at first, it is not something that will affect the moment you are working.
The Surface Pro includes installed Windows 8 Pro and a Stylus with which we can begin to realize our illustrations, although it is not of the same quality to which Wacom has us accustomed, this fulfills its function, with the time you get used and even You’re taking care of her
A strong point that I love about the Surface Pro is its size, it is perfect to carry anywhere, with its 274.5 x 172.9 x 13 mm it is really comfortable to carry and carry anywhere, it was originally What I was looking for, the power to illustrate comfortably anywhere.
It is possible to mention that the Surface Pro has 1024 levels of pressure, the Wacom of high range have 2048 levels of pressure, but in this case it is not possible to notice much the difference, after trying it for a good time I am very happy with the quality that Reaches Microsoft with the Surface Pro, personally used it as a tool for Digital illustration and in my opinion is such a good product that I can reach the degree of being able to recommend it widely as an excellent alternative to the Wacom Cintiq Companion, especially if your budget Is somewhat limited.
It is very important to emphasize that Microsoft has 2 types of products, Surface and Surface Pro, the only one that serves us for digital illustration is the Surface Pro, the other is a Tablet any, does not include Stylus, does not have Windows 8 and so More importantly, you can not install applications, eye, later we will see the importance of installing applications.
