Hi,

I have had a surface pro 4 for maybe the last 3 or 4 years.

I have started to have some problems with the monitor. If I have the laptop on for 30 minutes or more, the display starts to freeze. The lights behind the display start to flicker, & the app on the screen appears to freeze. If I close the app, then a "shadow" of the app will still appear on the display.

I don't know if this is because the device is old, or is there some other issue.

Regardless, I am looking at upgrading.

The new device will be used mostly for software development.
In particular, I will be using visual studio code, and android studio. I don't do any iOS development.

I'm not sure if the surface was just not powerful enough to handle the development, so I'm not sure if I should get another, or maybe look at a surface book or surface laptop.

Can people please give me recommendations for what would be best for my needs?

Again, it would have to be capable to handle software development, as I will be spending the majority of my time doing that.

I also have a wirless microsoft keyboard that I would prefer using, if that helps ata ll.

So I am unsure about whether to choose a surface laptop or surface book, or is there another type of laptop that would be a better alternative.

Thanks for reading, & I appreciate any feedback.
