Summary: The surface itself works pretty well, but the charger broke within a year for no reason. It slowly became unable to keep a connection with my computer. Now when I attach the charger to my surface it initially signifies it is charging by the light, but then three seconds later it will stop charging...
Summary: The Windows 8 operating system is not intuitive especially to Apple users. The pen and charging cord share the same port and therefore there is no place to store the pen when recharging the tablet. The cover/ keyboard attaches firmly and has a great feel when typing or using the touch pad mouse.
Very functional - but a 25% failure rate on these devices is too high

Summary: I purchased 20 Surface Pro tablets for our company. So we have a diverse range of feedback and user experience to base this opinion on. PROS In general, these are extremely functional devices and I've found that I have been able to replace my complete laptop PC and my larger tablet (iPad sized...
Summary: The Surface Pro is a 5 star device. I am giving this a low score because it's NOT what they said it was. This is NOT A SURFACE PRO 2 This is NOT A 4th GEN HASWELL CPU This is NOT WINDOWS 8.1 (but it is admittedly a free upgrade) I expected a good deal on a Surface Pro 2, I ended up overpaying for a...
Summary: There was a problem with the keyboard on this product. Two of the keys (totally unrelated and in different parts of the keyboard) were alternated with each other, so if I tried to type an @, I would get a semicolon and vice versa. Very strange. Nobody at Microsoft had any idea.
Summary: It's not light. Definitely not what I expected. It does have some weight to it. And after a few hours of use it gets very warm very fast. Which is concerning. I ended up trading this in for the Microsoft surface 3. Which is much lighter and doesn't run as warm.
Be careful to identify your use, laptop replacement vs a tablet

Summary: Have owned for 2 years now. Initial quality was decent, but standing power is really bad for the price. At 6 months the keyboard port on the bottom stopped working- tested the keyboard on another unit and it works fine. Next the hardware audio control went out about 2 months later.
