"I thought I could get the Surface to replace my laptop"

CareyVandenberg, CNET
17 March 2014
  • Pros: Windows 8.1 and you can run the full suite of office apps. Much lighter than the iPad . The real feel keyboard is excellent (I tried the less expensive touch one but you have to really punch the keys to get them to respond)
  • Cons: I can't get my CRM Outlook add in to install (Maximizer). That I kind of expected however my office tech was amazed that I couldn't get LOGMEIN to work so he could work on my Surface remotely. Now THAT is absolutely ridiculous.

  • Pros: Size, weight & battery life.
  • Cons: Not compatible with my existing Le4xmark and HP printers. Game apps have to be downloaded through MSN Games, which includes unwanted ads; can't get rid of them! Ads work but downloaded Game doesn't work. Very poor camera coarse, grainy resolution.

From 5 stars to 2...

Dana Durand, Amazon
8 January 2013
  • 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.

  • Pros: It only crashed once in the week I had it.
  • Cons: The keyboard was over priced for its poor quality and the felt background on the keyboard didn't improve the function and looked bad too.
