We are replacing our older Assus Transformer RT tablet with one of these devices. MS Surface Pro 4 i5 .

 

Is was looking at the Samsung Tab Pro S- funny as the guy in Harvey Normans said dont touch the Samsung. If I could have afforded it I would have preferred the 256gb model. 

 

Im not a gamer so I reckon this should do me. Any comments on this model

What are you planning to use it for?  4Gb is not much RAM for Windows but I have a 2Gb tablet with an Atom CPU and it's adequate for web browsing and a remote desktop session (just).  The i5 should be fairly speedy.

I cannot believe the amount of negative feedback Expert InfoTech have received lately. Our experience was excellent on the purchase of the Surface Pro last week

Go for the Surface.  I moved from an Asus T100 and though mine was a M3 , it was a great experience.

 

If you can afford go for the Alcantara keyboard.
