"Excellent device"4.5 starson by DemBones66
Pros: - Full Windows experience in a tablet form factor
- Fast, smooth, and stable (Windows 8 makes a lot more sense here than on a desktop)
- Never have to worry about the limitations of mobile OS, particularly while surfing the net
Cons: - Wish the edges were a little more rounded (tend to dig into the flesh of the hand given the weight of the device)
- Battery life is quite variable
- Windows app store is lacking which hurts the tablet experience
Summary: Given the generally positive but not overwhelming reviews, I was a little hesitant to take the plunge. However, I could not be happier with my purchase.
If you have ever picked up a tablet and been frustrated by the limitations of a mobile OS, then the Surface Pro may be for you. No more being redirected to mobile websites or not getting a web page to load because you need Flash or some other plug-in.
I don't get the reviewers who say you can't use it as a tablet sitting on your coach or lying in bed. I had no such trouble. Love the stylus, just wish there was a better way to store it.
All-in-all, I think it's a cool device with a great screen. You really feel like you are holding a fully powered PC in your hands.
