  • Summary: - The ability to run full Windows application on a tablet has been something that many people have been waiting for and the Microsoft Surface Pro allows them to do that. The problem is that it is still too much of a work around for that capability.

Microsoft Surface Pro Review

Good E-Book Readers
1 April 2013
  • Conclusion: The Surface PRO on a fundamental hardware level is fairly sound. It meets the needs of your average user, but may not appeal to people who need a high-performance machine. If you do casual website editing, blogging, small bursts of gaming, or browsing the internet, you should be OK.
  • Pros: HD Display, Stylus, Windows Legacy Support, Audio and Video Codex
  • Cons: 4 Hour Battery Life, 23.4 GB Free to Use on a 64 GB model, Blackberry Z10 Speaker Quality Is Better, Using the Virtual Keyboard in Desktop Situations Is Terrible

Microsoft Surface Pro Review

Digitaltrends
15 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Microsoft’s Surface Pro is a bold move. By jumping into the tablet business, the company is attempting to counter the “post-PC” era by guiding consumers towards a future where PCs are different, but still dominated by Windows. We think the idea is sound. The finished product? Not so much.
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, Display is extremely bright
  • Cons: Only one USB port, Type Cover is terrible and overpriced, Heavy and thick for a tablet, Below-average endurance, Runs slightly warm, Poor value

12 July 2013
  • Conclusion: As a tablet, Microsoft's Surface Pro exceeded our expections, as its full Windows 8 OS will not only install any Windows PC application but is powerful enough to run everything you'd find on an ultrabook.
  • Pros: Bright and vibrant touchscreen, full Windows 8 OS compatibility, good performance.
  • Cons: Bulky and heavy for a tablet, shorter battery life than the Surface RT, Microsoft Office isn't preloaded., What you get for the price.

  • Summary: The Surface Pro fails to live up to expectations. Despite the HD screen and solid performance, it's weak when it comes to portability and doesn't do enough to stand out from OEM competitors.
  • Pros: Beautiful HD screen, Full Windows 8, Good performance
  • Cons: Inflexible kickstand, Too heavy, Expensive, Virtually unserviceable, So-so battery life

TEST: Microsoft Surface Pro

3 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Så, bør du kjøpe denne maskinen? Nei! Vent heller på Surface Pro 2 og Windows 8.1. Er det en erstatning for tradisjonelle nettbrett? Nei, den er et kompromiss for de som ikke ønsker å både ha en bærbar PC og ett nettbrett.
  • Pros: Kickstand, God skjerm, Delvis vellykket blanding av PC og nettbrett
  • Cons: Kickstand, God skjerm, Delvis vellykket blanding av PC og nettbrett, Svak batteritid, Lite touchvennlig i “skrivebord” modus, Office 2013 er ikke i “Modern UI”

  • Conclusion: Esta tablet es para profesionistas que requieran un nivel superior en procesamiento de información y además estén constantemente fuera de la oficina. La segunda generación de la Surface está en camino y quizás no sea el mejor momento de comprar una en este momento.
  • Pros: Es una de las tablets más potentes del mercado gracias a su procesador Intel Core i5 y es casi un reemplazo de tu computadora, además de que es extremadamente portátil con una excelente calidad de fabricación. Su capacidad de almacenamiento supera a la de la mayoría, ofreciendo además diversas op...
  • Cons: El precio es muy caro en comparación con muchas laptops y ultrabooks del mercado. El soporte trasero de esta primera generación de Surface sólo permite una posición y puede ser un poco incómodo. El teclado se vende por separado, lo que la hace aún más cara. La duración de la batería es muy baja.
