Every app I find that seems educational for my daughter and have high reviews can't be added to this surface since all the good

Gretchen Folczyk, Amazon

  • Summary: Wish I would have purchased an iPad instead. Every app I find that seems educational for my daughter and have high reviews can't be added to this surface since all the good apps are from Apple. Can't add iTunes to the surface either. The only apps you can get are through the Microsoft store and I am NOT impressed with their selection. If you want all the good apps go with iPad for sure!

You get what you pay for on refurbished products

  • Summary: This is the second Microsoft Surface 2 64gb I have purchased from manufacturer refurbished that did not work. This one quit working after 3 weeks, and after several emails to manufacturer refurbished they finally agreed to take the unit back for a refund. I don't understand how two units from this remanufacturing company fail to perform after being tested and certified to work properly.

Expensive Book reader at this point - thumbs wavering towards down

Peggy Harper, Amazon
4 August 2014
  • Summary: So far - I am underwhelmed. It keeps telling me that I can upgrade my Microsoft to 8 from the loaded RT program but it won't do it. I'll keep working on it but as it is at the moment; it is a glorified book reader. So far the app store doesn't carry my bank; won't let me into Amazon.com. The only app that I've been able to download that works is the Kindle App and I own a Kindle Fire. Anyone have any suggestions?

  • Summary: Read the description VERY CAREFULLY before buying.This is NOT a FULL WINDOWS OPERATING SYSTEM.THIS HAS VERY LIMITED FUNCTIONALITY.Shame on Microsoft for marketing an inferior product.The only reason I'm keeping mine is it can still run a virtual network center with large type.

  • Summary: It's fairly heavy and Windows 8 just is a challenge to navigate. My Surface quit working 13 days after I bought it.

From 5 stars to 2...

Dana Durand, Amazon

  • 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.

Not the fairest tablet of them all.

Kabari, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: Took it out of the box, turned it on, got a blue screen telling me it crashed. That sums up my experience with the Surface: nothing worked out of the box. I was unable to do most things on it without installing a bunch of upgrades, and the registration NEVER worked. Compared to the other tablets on the market, where you open the box and you are good to start browsing the web, this tablet was not ready to do anything out of the box.

A camel of a tablet

mlombard, Viewpoints
7 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Overall, the Surface feels like a camel - that is, a horse designed by a committee. Things don't feel super thought out and instead we're left with a hodgepodge of features and goals that don't always mesh well. In a time in which software is getting faster, sleeker and more intuitive, the Surface seems a strange step backwards, or at least to the side. The tiles are cool, but its tough to quickly find things with every icon in such a similar style/form.

Если бы установить нормальную операционную систему, то был бы отличный планшет

  • Excerpt: Не могу сказать, что полностью доволен покупкой. В результете вместо планшета получил пишущую машинку с возможностью выхода в интернет, читалкой книг и просмотра видео. Для нетребовательных пользователей такого более чем достаточно. А мне вот оказалось маловато. За такие деньги можно приобрести куда более функциональные модели, пусть даже по качеству материалов они не будут столь же примечательными. Те же самсунги, например - страшненькие, но куда умнее.
  • Pros: Отличный дизайн, великолепное качество сборки. В этих вопросах данная модели ничуть не усупает айпадам, раве что немного тяжеловат, долго держать на весу довольно затруднительно. Очень хороший экран с живыми цветами и хорошими углами обзора. Есть полноценные разъёмы USB, в которые можно воткнуть флешку, а также возможность подключения карт памяти. Важным для меня достоинством является наличие настоящего макрософтсткого офиса, причём установленного изначально.
  • Cons: С технической точки зрения к этому планшету нет вообще никаких претензий. Он великолепен, если смотреть на качество сборки и материалы. Но если начать обсуждать программную часть, то тут настоящий кошмар. Программ про этот RT практически нет. Так же как и совместимости с обычным виндовс, одно название только. Я надеялся, что ситуация эта будет исправляться, но не тут то было. За несколько месяцев использования ничего толкового так и не появилось. И похоже, что я раньш...

Non è un PC, Non è un Tablet.. E' un ibrido limitato ma bello

esseO, Ciao
4 March 2014
  • Summary: Prima di tutto è necessaria una precisazione. Su questo Surface RT il SO installato è Windows 8.1 RT (per processori ARM) quindi una versione LIMITATA di Windows che non permette di sfruttarne le potenzialità ma ne emula in tutto e per tutto la UI. BUNDLE La scatola è molto elegante, e evidenzia da subito la cura con cui il "tablet" è costruito. Levando la prima parte delle scatola troviamo altre due scatole di dimensioni minori.
  • Pros: USB, Stand, Cover con Tastiera, Browser,  Materiali
  • Cons: Batteria, Applicazioni, Sistema Operativo, Touch Cover, Ibrido, Non è un PC e nemmeno un Tablet
