Summary: It is better than my other tablets and also better than my laptops. the touch screen is wonderful. a few problems though 1) IT WILL BURN YOU BE CAREFUL! it didn't burn me very bad but after about 6 hours of use I went to close the cover and when i touched the back it was very hot.
Good device, runs actual software that does actual work

Summary: Good device, small and runs actual software that does work. I use it to control Canon EOS cameras, download GPS data, and run GIS applications, plus all the other email, internet uses. Good hard drive capacity if you control yourself on free downloads. Good battery life, tough build. Happy so far.
Summary: It's great for being on the go but I got the 64GB and I thought that would be enough to download some videos but now I only have like 1 GB left. I don't know how that's possible since each video is under 1 GB and there are about 18 of them. Makes no sense to me.
Summary: Very nice tablet/PC that was in very good shape with only a few scratches on the outside back portion of the PC. The device runs hot often but that seems to be a flaw with the device for the last 2 generations also.
Summary: I bought my Surface Pro about 8 months ago online from the Microsoft store. Some first impressions: 1. Lightweight, a lot more convenient to carry than my heavy laptop 2. The pen was a very nice accessory, allowed taking notes easier 3.
Summary: Never got the pen. Didn't realize it was included till someone said it was part of their Surface Pro. Too late now to prove it to provider. Otherwise I love my surface pro! So light..no problems to date.
Great First Gen Product That is Bested by its Successors

Summary: The Microsoft Surface Tablet it a worthy hybrid device. It bridges the gap between tablet and laptop. However, like many things that try to be multiple things at once, you have to make some compromises and concessions.
