Summary: Recently purchased Surface RT with type keyboard. Very happy with the purchase so far. Great for Emailing, browsing and watching movies. I purchased this to do some real work using Word and Excel. It works really well and is pretty fast. The best part is the seamless connectivity with Onedrive.
Summary: I've been slowly making the switch away from Apple because Microsoft solutions all work so well online, and so well together. Love my Windows 8.1 phone, my desktop machine with Windows 8.1 and this Surface is so much better than my iPad Mini.
Pros: When did Microsoft become the best computing experience? The Surface integrates very well with online Microsoft services - OneNote, OneDrive, Outlook and all that - and is a great stand-alone computer. It's not a gaming machine, though there are plenty of games for it. We were pleasantly surprise...
Cons: Windows RT still feels like a bit of a work in progress. Some parts of it are excellent, while others need work. It really, really needs another mainstream web browser option.
Summary: it did not come with a key code to activate windows or at least I couldn't find mine. was very complicated to figure out what to do. finally after quiet a bit of research I discovered I have to purchase a new key code to activate. I have not purchased it yet. not happy about this!!
Pros: I picked the Surface up 6:00AM this morning and have been playing with it ever since. My review is really going to be different then others, so please, pay attention. For the people with the negative reviews, at least 60% of you ordering this product will probably be thinking, HEY when I get this...
Cons: After updating, installing and re-installing software, I could never get the keyboard to work. All the research was a waste. The keyboard is the flimsy cheap one. It's awful, I will return this one and get an ASUS.
