Summary: This really is a great mobile computing device. I used this device as both my laptop (with a Type keyboard) and as a tablet. With its processing power, it easily handles intensive applications. It's also pretty great as a tablet for easy entertainment - the 16:9 screen is really great for Netflix. I recommend this device if you want more from your tablet - better web browsing, higher resolution display, a touch-friendly interface designed for large screens.
Excellant purchase. I enjoy it extremely. Great value for the money. I use

Summary: It is very quick, like it very much. I purchased so I could learn windows 8 on a touch screen device. It is more powerful than a plain tablet, but comes in a package smaller and more portable than a laptop. I installed Office 2013 and ran with no problems. I would definitely recommend this to others.
Summary: Perfect for tablet, labtop users that want both not just both. I wouldn't recommend this to people who just want a laptop or tablet because you can always find a better one for a lower price. I love this surface, it has all the needs I desired and wanted, I can type with touch screen keyboard, with the pen or with the keyboard I got( which I'm using) I can use it for games with touch screen interaction and use it for college with the one note, listen to my music , draw...
I like the computer. I wish it had come with an instruction book.

Summary: Good computer, but needs to come with instructions. The battery life isn't as good as it says, at least on mine.But the biggest problem that I have with it is not having a book of instructions.
Summary: The added benefits of ARM processor tablets over my 2008 laptop were just enhancements in consumption tasks. Didn't find that worthy to be worrying about two delicate devices (one being mostly a sub-part of the other), and their price tags just weren't justifiable when there are quality Intel Atom processor tablets that offer quadruple more functions for the same price.
Summary: It is simply a very compact laptop computer but in the form of a tablet. Like most laptops with this much perks, the battery life is about the same, 4 to 6 hrs max before requiring a recharge. However if you are interested in a small machine to conserve space and do it all, this could be the machine for you. Just be mindful that it will require external adapters to completely match the portable laptops of today.
Summary: The Surface Pro is amazing ! It powers on quickly, the screen is bright and clear. I love the stand on the back. I also purchased a touch keyboard that closes against the screen and protects it. I added a skin to the back and that also protects it from scratches. Windows 8 is a little hard to get use to but it's not that bad. The only negative for me is that is its a touch heavier than what I expected.
