Summary: I bought this product, thinking it would be good replacement for my netbook, having 2nd thoughts a lot is not supported on it such as Microsoft Silverlight for watching movies, the printer driver was not compatible even downloaded from manufactures website, Tried downloading from The App store very limited and frustrating still waiting for a reply back from Microsoft spending 300 quid on this was not happy and still not happy.
Summary: I bought this tablet as it had a USB port. It has been a disaster from the beginning. The battery life is short, it is fiddly to plug in, applications are few and inefficient,and Word keeps crashing. Don't waste your money, compared with my Apple I pad which cost about the same it is just not in the same league. I regret having bought it.
Summary: i bought this tablet and i tried downloading my favorite game minecraft i tried downloading it and and it said not the right pc so i tried the version and it said i needed a app to download it the only way to get the game is to buy a surface pro which is way to expensive
Summary: I decided to convert from my laptop to a tablet because it was just too big to lug around. I wanted a Windows tablet because I wanted the ability to be able to move files over and use them as well as being able to use flash. I love this tablet. There is a bit of a steep learning curve if you are used to Ipads but once I got the hang of it it's been smooth sailing. Got the Surface keyboard as well and it's basically like having a mini laptop.
Summary: I got this as a present and love it. We are a windows house(meaning we all use windows) It was easy to link with wireless printer, to my Smart TV and I have ZERO virus worries. If you want to play Angry Birds then buy a IPAD, but this Surface is a computer in its self. Amazing battery life, amazing picture and sound and a USB port makes a world of difference for loading and transferring files. I recommend!!
Summary: I bought this today and was very happy to start using Photoshop to create digital drawings on it until I got home. I didn't realize that Windows rt doesn't allow you to Install software of the internet you can only download apps from their store. And it has horrible apps. It's like having a Windows version of an iPad but 100 times worse. I suggest not getting this product and go buy a tablet with original Windows 8 with no rt.
Summary: I was initially a little hesitant about this product. Although it looks compelling I was somewhat reluctant to purchase it as I'm not much of a Windows fan. I knew I didn't want to succumb to the "cult of Apple" and a similar Android devise was more expensive and didn't provide some of the features I was looking for - so I took chance. Here are my observations after 3 days of use. Pros - very easy to use.
Summary: I was not very convinced when initially it was released that it was a good tablet....I bought nexus 7 and ipad instead. But recently wanted to try surface and from the start go I loved it....Its a great piece of hardware and nice software... I am still in love with it....
Summary: You know what? I love this machine , its taken a week , i have an ipad, and still for a week I wanted to return it , but it grows on you and when you compare prices for what you get, wow no contest, in my opinion, luv this machine more each day, not even the pro version , people this is it !!
