The highly anticipated Surface Pro 5 is considered as a top-of-the-line product of Microsoft in 2017 with its superb specs and power under its hood.

According to a BRG report, Microsoft Surface Pro 5 can easily outclass its closest competitor, the Apple iPad Pro 2.

Although Microsoft remains silent on the improvement of Surface Pro 5, this Windows 10 device could also be a better MacBook Pro alternative. Apple, for its part, only considered the Surface Pro series within its iPad category.

After being left out during the launching of Microsoft products in October 2016, Surface Pro 5 fueled more excitement with fans believing that the newest Pro model will come with more storage, more RAM, and more powered processors.

Set to arrive in spring of 2017, Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be powered by the latest Kaby Lake chips, and armed with 16GB of RAM and 512GB massive storage space, according to a CNET report.

This is way beyond iPad Pro's 256GB storage space and 4GB RAM. Reported to be running on Windows 10 Redstone 3, Microsoft Surface Pro 5 operating system is way better that iPad Pro's iOS.

PC Advisor UK reported that among the upgrades of the upcoming Microsoft hybrid device also included support for 4K resolution that is brought about by Kaby Lake native 4K video support.

But the ultra-high resolution display could be a burden to the superb operating system and Microsoft sets eye on fingerprint scanning through the PixelSense display instead.

The Surface Pen stylus of Pro 5 will receive wireless charging power through the magnetic dock. The upgrades also include USB Type-C ports, Thunderbolt 3 support, and fingerprint sensor embedded in the screen.

The projected price tag for this latest Microsoft device could start from $899 USD for its standard model to as high as $1999 USD for its premium model.

Again, Microsoft has not made any statement yet regarding the much awaited Surface Pro 5, but a video has leaked on Youtube providing preview of the highly anticipated Microsoft device:
