2-in-1 devices (aka a tablet with the power of a laptop) are showing no signs of slowing down in popularity. The main benefit to a 2-in-1 device is the ability to use a powerful business operating system, and still be contained within something that has a simliar weight to a pack of 3 bananas.

Two recently released devices are the Surface Pro 4 and the iPad Pro. Both have their strengths and weaknesses, but how do the two directly compare?

I decided to put them both through a series of tests; including form factor, how they work with their attached keyboards, audio quality, and business apps interface. Sometimes there was an outright winner, and sometimes there was very little difference between the two.

In my best TV gadget presenter impression, here are the results of our first ‘Device Battles’ episode.
