So much more to be desired

zmgao, epinions.com

  • Summary: Don't buy it until Microsoft fixes the problems.
  • Pros: It's a complete PC in a tablet for productivity, not just entertainment.
  • Cons: It's a confused and confusing product, spelling a wrong philosophy and destroys its own base.

Slow WiFi, otherwise not a bad tablet

IdahoSAM, Staples
3 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased this in late April 2013, and returned it the same day. I was hoping that this would be a good tablet for my electronic health record software which I connect through using Internet Explorer's RDP to a main server. Unfortunately the SLOWNESS was a high negative for this tablet. I have much higher connection speeds using my iPad connected through RDP and running a local machine. I was disappointed that it didn't work out, since it has a nice feel to it.

Thee Tablet for which I Have Been Waiting

Lisa "lp", Amazon
19 April 2013
  • Summary: *****5star: I have been waiting to replace my trusty netbook for a touch tablet THAT DID NOT run on Android (hate the fact that android OS takes my credit card numbers and stores them indefinitely without adequate security in the event of theft of the physical device!). I wanted the same MS/Windows I run in my home office, so I could update and change documents when I was meeting with clients. I wanted to read books with a touch screen.

Why???

Microgrooves, Amazon
4 April 2013
  • Summary: Used it for a week. Much better to just buy a laptop, without windows 8. To use this effectively, you should buy the keyboard (for like another $120). But once you have attached it, you will find its just an expensive laptop. The flip out stand is pretty worthless unless you are sitting, not good in the kitchen for recipes or such. The pen is cool, but links to the same spot as the power connector, so you have to leave it to possibly get lost when charging.

Not Quite a Tablet

Gearard LeFore, Amazon
18 March 2013
  • Summary: Purchased the Microsoft Surface Pro from Best Buy as an alternative to an iPad and was very impressed. Great display, super fast and well made product. The processor is lightning fast, multi-tasking easy/fluid and Windows 8 has been a pleasant experience. Did not have any problems with heat and did not find the tablet too heavy compared to an iPad - the stand definitely helps with this.

  • Summary: After a few days, it is with mixed feelings that I see on this SP. If we start with the positive, and really shine Windows 8 on a device of this type - the gestures are natural and it does not take many minutes before taking the time. The support on the back is ingenious and makes sure it gets a good angle when placed on a table. Along with a type cover, it's actually a decent replacement for a laptop.

  • Summary: Bought it from Bazula to get it before everyone else :) + Really good speed in the hardware. + Type Cover keyboard is really good. Easy to write on, full-sized keys, etc. + No fucking lock-á lá apple which all programs must be purchased from the app store. + As far as I noticed, it is no problem whatsoever with backward compatibility. All plain old program works.

Microsoft Surface Pro

  • Summary: Not as good as I wanted it to be. Knew battery life wasn't excellent but thought it was better than it is. Large fingers and have to use pen whilst browsing, this is a bit too sensitive.
