"After buying, I immediately sold my iPad & MacBook Pro."5.0 starson by VanAwesome
Pros: FAST. FAST. FAST!
Works with regular PC games. Not limited to tablet games.
Battery Life is much better than any notebook I've ever used. Lasts my entire work day with off and on use.
Cons: I wish the charger had some built in cable management (like the flip out tabs on the macbook pro charger)
Fans a little loud when doing processor intense work. Better than having it heat up and burn my fingers like my iPad 3 did though.
Summary: I really love the Surface Pro. It's frustrating to see all the Apple Fanboy reviews around the web refusing to give the Surface credit where credit is due. This device is revolutionary. It's everything that I had hoped the iPad would be.I can't believe I forgot to mention the Pen! The Pen is the best part!
I haven't owned a windows device in nearly 10 years, I've been exclusively Mac ever since they announced OSX. However, I have to hand it to Microsoft and praise them with their achievement. They've managed to make a fun, media centered device, that's still every bit as useful as a laptop. They didn't just make a larger version of a windows phone and call it a day (I'm looking at you iPad) they made a productive tool, that's fun.
I immediately sold my 3rd Gen. iPad and MacBook Pro as I will no longer be requiring their services.
To all the skeptics out there saying that MS manufactured the sold out status of the Surface Pro, I can tell you that I saw the waiting list at my local Microsoft store with 300+ names on it.

My wife owns a Wacom Cintiq, and says that the Surface Pro's pen is even MORE responsive than her Cintiq. I would agree, but I've never used her Cintiq. I have used many Graphics Tablets, and having the ability to draw right on the screen is awesome. It works great with Autodesk Sketchbook pro, and there are a bunch of apps in the windows store that support the pen.
As of right now, however, the pen's impressive pressure sensitivity is not recognized by Adobe products. Which is a real shame. It's definitely possible, since it works so well with Sketchbook Pro, a drawing app that is every-bit as good FOR DRAWING (not photo editing) as photoshop, if not better.
I really hope either Adobe or Microsoft updates soon.
