Summary: I just bought this (08/2015) instead of a Surface Pro 3 (or the rumored Surface Pro 4 that may be out in the fall). There were a couple of reasons: 1) Size - I actually prefer the smaller 10.6" form factor over the Pro 3 12", I find it's more portable with the exact same processor as the newer Pro...
Summary: I've been using this device for more than 6 months now. I've got it for a great price and the specs are very good. I've got it for work since my job is on-the-move and requires constant use of a windows PC/laptop. The surface pro 2 proved to be amazing.
Summary: I bought it for the Wacom digitizer - in hopes of having a poor man's "Cintiq" and I'm not disappointed. Though the widescreen proportions aren't the best for sketching in portrait mode, I've been very happy with this purchase!
Good buy if you need a light and capable Pen input tablet pc, not for media consumption

Summary: it works pretty well, but i would not recommend if all you do is watching movies and browse the web. i use it to draw and because i can run cad programs (no rendering, just building) it is much more convenient than carrying my big laptop around. battery life is okay, sound is pretty low though.
One of the better Tablet/Laptop hybrid within the category

Summary: One of the better Tablet/Laptop hybrid within the category. I have used plenty of laptops in my time as a salesman in a computer department and have used many types of hybrids from Lenovo, Asus, HP Acer, and Toshiba.
Needed a desktop that I could pack up and carry everyday

Summary: I was on the fence between purchasing the Surface Pro 3 128 gb and this one. Well I finally decided on this one for a few reasons, 8gb RAM (vs. 4), 512 gb hd (vs 128), i5 4200U (vs 4300U) processor, only .20lbs heavier, accessories are cheaper, Microsoft 10 upgrade included, I don't use the camera...
Summary: This has replaced my Laptop, iPad, Kindle, and Desktop. I use this daily for everything, I do wish the speakers were louder. My iPhone 6+ has speakers twice as loud as this, I use my Bluetooth speaker for Netflix when watching on the tablet.
Summary: This is by far the best "notebook" computer and so powerful. I also bought the detachable keyboard and arch mouse for use in my office. It is Windows 8 touchscreen which is also nice. This is so lightweight that it is definitely my 1st choice for a traveling companion (besides my wife).
