    You say the surface is 167ppi but no size, and the lenovo is 12″ at 2160x 1440 but no ppi. How can we compare those?
    As to the question, neither as they are too small to program on.

    Pro 4 display is 12.3″ at a resolution of 3000*2000. If I remember correctly, that equals 267 ppi. I use this tablet for sketching and as my laptop replacement with no compromise. It is a beast. Best $$ ever spent on a computer.
