Summary: I read mixed reviews on the Surface, and after a period of months wanted to create my own. I surmise this is a crossover product to serve as laptop and tablet, which, does neither very well. The RT operating system is unwieldy, and even after an upgrade to Windows 8.1, there are still software programs that won't work. I bought the type cover, which helps. All in all, the cost of both the Surface and type cover is, in my view, exorbitant.
Pros: for simple use no problems (internet) life of battery is also good
Cons: Screen freezes with most apps,xbox games,free videos,video player mkv,etc..Than you have to restart the tablet , not easy with a screen on tilt.Today same story only the tablet don't restart anymore (it's broken).Good thing asus stops making these.
Summary: Pros: nice keyboard design; it snaps in nicely Prices are dropping fast, but there's a good reason for that Thin and looks sleek, although all of it seems to be a inspired from this tablet's major competition. The charger, finger swipes, and aluminum texture seems like MS is working too hard to mimic other products Cons: The biggest complaint is that it is slow compared to the other products, this is more cumbersome to use and takes longer to get it to be productive The...
Summary: I rarely use my laptop anymore. I bought this on release day at the Denver MS store. I researched it out for a couple weeks prior and have not been disappointed at all. Battery last all day with nearly constant use. Screen is great to watch movies on. Responsive touchscreen. Good weight balance, solid construction. Nice Typecover.
Summary: The Surface is a nicely built tablet with many great features. However, it does not have a built-in GPS. I will not own a tablet without a built-in GPS. If you are thinking you can use a BlueTooth or USB GPS, think again - as of now, there are no drivers included in RT for these devices, and you can not install new drivers.
