Good if you have 3Yr warranty support.

published

Working with these in the office over the past year and a half has been both a joy and occasional challenge. It is light, compact and super mobile removing the need for multiple devices, however it can be fussy.

Would I buy one with my own money? If the screen was closer to 13", performance was 30-50% better and 3Yr warranty standard, possibly. The drawing experience is great and the display is super clear albeit on the smaller side. If all you do is push emails around, online research and sign a few docs during the day its a handy companion. Content creators and those more impatient may however struggle to let go of their more powerful laptop or desktop PC and end up using both.

Rubbish. Touch screen doesnt work

published

A touch screen tablet where the touch screen doesnt work. And Microsoft knows about it. Then send out another famous Microsoft update. Makes the thing totally useless. Get an iPad or laptop and save yourself the heartache.

Not worth buying

published

This computer is pretty bad its battery life was not what is was supposed to be. There were several problems such as turning it on it would never turn on until like the 20th time of pressing the button. It was also very laggy and could not have a lot of tabs open at the same time and I had to replace it 3 times because it had an issue and could not be fixed even my old HP computer was better than this potato.

Purchased in at PB Tech for $1,600.

Not up to scratch

published

Bought in Feb 2017 had problems turning it on and off immediately but it did eventually work ok for about 6 months then it wouldn't turn off again, also life of battery was only 2 to 2.5 yours nowhere near the supposed 8. Contacted Microsoft and they replaced it with a reconditioned laptop in August 2017. This worked ok until March 2019 then the hard drive crashed in this one, Microsoft said as this was out of warranty they would not replace it but I could buy a Surface Pro 4 for $675 ( probably another reconditioned lemon). Now I'm $1200 out of pocket and no computer. Stay away from this product warranty should have been a new product not a reconditioned lemon.

Awesome little laptop/tablet

published

I wanted something that was portable but also able to be used as a desktop app this was perfect! Does everything I need it to do and more, all in a sleek package. I love being able to use the pen and write on the tablet without smudging it when I rest my hand on the tablet. All in all a fantastic little device!

Perfect Computer for those on the Go

published

I use this as my everyday laptop and has enough processing power for most activities. I usually have multiple windows open and a media player in the background which it handles very well. the keyboard on this is a must if you want to increase productivity.
I also bring this with me when i travel and it doesnt take too much space or weight.

Cool gadget

published

I purchased the Surface Pro after my Macbook decided to not wake up. So far, it's been very impressive. It so far is very dependable but battery life is about 4 to 5 hours. Not too sure if it's supposed to be 8?

Love it, happy with my choice

published

Happy with it so far, easy to use and i love the convenience of being able to switch between tablet and keyboard. Very stylish and practical. I';d say it does run a bit slower than my macbook pro did when I got that one new though
