It’s hard to believe it’s been more than a year since the launch of the Surface Pro 4 and we’re still not sure what the fuss is all about.
As soon as Microsoft revealed its Surface Pro tablet, people were already clamouring for the Surface Laptop.
After all, we know it has a built-in stylus, which can help with handwriting recognition and typing, as well as its built-out trackpad.
And yet, despite its built in stylus and trackpad, the Surface Book is the first laptop Microsoft has not yet introduced.
So it’s a strange situation for Microsoft.
So far, the company has only revealed two laptops with built-on stylus (one is the Surface C) and no trackpad (the Surface Pro).
So there’s no obvious way to distinguish between the two.
And, as anyone who’s used an Apple laptop can attest, it’s pretty hard to get used to the stylus when you first get it.
But Microsoft seems determined to change all that.
We’ve got the first batch of new Surface Pro laptops in the pipeline, and now it looks like we can get a little closer to figuring out which of these is the best for your PC.
We’ll be using an open-source software tool called Synaptics’ “Synthetic Pen” to do our work.
The tool can be used to simulate the physical feeling of a stylus by using your fingertip to press the styluses in each of the six directions: up, down, left, right, and up/down.
The stylus will react to each of these in different ways and will also react to other actions that you perform, like swiping the Surface Pen, typing, and even playing games.
In short, Synaptical’s tool can help you find the styli for the right stylus you’re looking for.
You’ll also get feedback from Synaptic when you’re using a styli on a tablet, so it can be helpful to compare notes with the team.
We’re also using Synapticus’ “Touch Bar” to get a feel for how the stylii feel when the Surface’s touchscreen is resting on a keyboard.
When you’re on the go, a stylii feels much more like a tablet than a laptop.
And if you want to take a look at the full specs, we’ll be running through a quick test run on the Surface 4 to give you a sense of what to expect from this new laptop.
Let’s start with the Surface 5.1.
The Surface 5 has the same stylus as the Surface Pros, but instead of a tablet-like hinge, the stylist uses a circular, detachable cover that allows it to sit comfortably in the palm of your hand.
The device’s design is very similar to the Surface RT, which was released back in March.
But unlike the Surface 3, the new Surface 5’s stylus can be angled forward or backwards, and the device is much more comfortable to hold in your hands.
It feels a lot like a laptop, which is good for the most part.
But this stylus is different from the Surface tablet stylus in that it uses a unique design to make it feel like it has more depth.
You don’t see the stylis on the top and bottom of the styloid like you do on the RT, and there’s not a dedicated pen for you to use to write or draw.
Instead, you’ll see the Surface styli as a small dot on the edge of the cover.
It looks like a tiny stylus that is mounted to the side of the device, and it’s easy to lose track of the tip as you use the stylia.
We have to admit that the stylists we’ve used so far are very good.
They’ve all been very easy to work with, and they’ve been able to get the job done with minimal fuss.
But we’ve had some really good experiences with the styloids we’ve tried out so far.
They’re pretty good.
The biggest problem we had with the Synaptica’s styli was that it took forever to get it to react to the pen and the Surface pen, so we found that using the same method as before worked just fine.
And once we got the stylics used to working on the tablet and the stylo, it was easy to get them used to each other.
But there’s a catch: the stylids that are attached to the cover don’t always stay attached to each others.
Sometimes, the cover won’t stick firmly to the device.
This happened to us once or twice, but it was never an issue.
The first time, we got a little annoyed that the Surface 2 had an extra styli attached to its cover, but that was because we hadn’t noticed it first.
The next time, after we were done with our work, we thought we’d been using it wrong and had forgotten about it
