To store your photos and videos, built-in memory starts off at a relatively low 8GB, but users can expand that up to 200GB via a microSD card slot. The Windows 10 OS features Microsoft's digital and search assistant, Cortana , and integration with the video chatting and calling service Skype. Other Windows 10 devices that Microsoft debuted today include the Surface Pro 4 tablet and the Surface Book , the company's first laptop.

The Surface Pro 3 two-in-one hybrid tablet has gained surprising traction in some ways; for instance, over the past year, Adobe has been making a point of optimizing all its desktop applications to work on these Windows 10 touch devices, most recently bringing InDesign into the fold. As I expected, its applications got shout-outs as being pen-enabled during the demo, as did Pro-E CAD software. The new Surface Pro 4 improves on its 12-inch predecessor with a 12.3-inch display at 267 pixels per inch (5 megapixels) using Gorilla Glass 4, but retains the same footprint. Microsoft introduced PixelSense technology (a branding of its inking tech), supporting a stylus with 1,024 levels of pressure (that's equivalent to Wacom's consumer graphics tablets) with "best-in-class" palm detection and parallax compensation. The stylus attaches magnetically to the device, and uses a one-click launch, similar to the Adonit Jot Dash . The battery is rated to last a year.
