Excerpt: I bought this with the hope that I might be truly portable. Previous laptops were too heavy, bulky, and went through painfully long startups. I was pleased that the Surface Pro had none of those problems. Plus I really like the touch screen which I use for the start menu. I also like the touch picture passcode. And I also like that I can find the desktop easily, which is where I continue to do most of my work.
Summary: Greatest piece of technology I have ever owned. I use it for everything from gaming to reading books to doing homework and it's the perfect device for everything I throw at it. Sometimes if I'm bored, I'll paint on it, another thing it does phenomenally.
Windows 8 worked fine and upgraded without any problems

Summary: Bought for my wife's Christmas present and got to admit, was a little worried after reading some of the other reviews. Everything went very smooth. Fired right up, Windows 8 worked fine and upgraded without any problems. She's loving it!
Summary: I have always wanted a Surface and with the cost of this Surface Pro, so far the quality, the cost I feel is really good. To get a Surface Pro 3 with the same ram and memory is twice the cost. So my hope is this Surface Pro will last me until I can get the Surface Pro 3 for the same deal in a couple of years.
