    Which is better for drawing and designing with Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketchbook Pro; the Surface Pro 4 or the Surface Book?

    Thanks.

    The Surface book has a 13.5 inch display and a resolution of 3000 x 2000 (267 PPI), where as the Surface Pro 12.3 inch display and a resolution of 2736 x 1824 (267 PPI)

    The CPU and GPU are better in the SB as well, so I'd say you'll get a better experience in the Surface Book

    Another for the Surface Book, and an owner, best notebook I've owned to date including many Mac's...

    I agree with the others. The Surface Book has a larger screen and more capable hardware. If that is your main usage, I would go with the Surface Book.

    (I have a Surface Pro 3 myself)
