I must say that I purchased this with no small amount of trepidation on 9/14/2013. I did not purchase it from Amazon, rather, I purchased from a reseller on ebay.
After reading so many negative reviews, I was afraid to pull the trigger. But, I went on Youtube and watched RECENT reviews by ACTUAL USERS and they overwhelmingly seemed to indicate that this little tablet was a worthwhile investment.
I knew going into this that Windows 8 "RT" was a "hobbled" version of Windows 8 and I couldn't use old windows 7 programs on this little guy. Only apps that can be downloaded from the Microsoft App store will work. But, if you think about it, this is very similar to the ipad. You cannot use Macintosh programs on the ipad - you can only use those apps which you can download from the Apple App store.
It does help that Microsoft includes, for free, the Microsoft Office 2013 suite on the tablet!
So, when I saw the refurbished 64gb model WITH soft keyboard for $279 shipped on ebay - I took the plunge. I AM SO GLAD I DID!
The build quality is ALMOST on par with Apple standards. Very nicely designed and executed. Feels great in the hand, and the built-in kickstand is a wonderful touch. Stays absolutely cool to the touch, even when plugged in to the charger.
The screen is quite bright, colorful and contrasty. NO, it's not a retina screen, but it's clear and crisp.Read more ›
Surface itself is a remarkable machine. Very small and lightweight - 2 lbs w the Type Cover. Plenty fast for Word and Internet. I do appreciate the long battery life. The Type Cover is fine for touch typists - no issue as long as use it on a desk or table.
Now on my lap, a different story. This is not a laptop and the fact that the screen does not stay up is an issue when not at a desk. Interviewed someone in a car the other day - screen just lay flat on my knee and could not see it at all. For apps, that's fine, fold the keyboard behind the screen and use it as a tablet. For touch typing, the major drawback of this system. Other drawback, of course, is the screen size. Fine for working with one document - my dual-screen desktop, or even my laptop, a far better system when I have 3 or 4 (or even 2) documents open so I can refer to reference materials while I write.
Still give it 5 stars, even though I'd prefer a form factor more like the Samsung Windows tablet (which is hinged more like a laptop). It's worth putting up with - half the weight and half the price of that Samsung.
And I guess, to be fair, it IS a tablet - and that convertible form factor, with the keyboard folded behind the screen, does have its uses. Kind of fun at times to use it strictly as a tablet.
Now after 6 weeks, I find I don't really care that much about the form factor.Read more ›
What I used or considered before buying: Nook, Samsung Galaxy, Other Android devices, IPAD
Why I am satisfied: 1) Active tiles are very useful. They give you information without a click. No other OS matches this.
2) Screen size is very convenient. Any 7" or 8" device will not work for me.
3) The UI is very fast and fluid. It all appears to be one single application doing different things for you. I think Metro is the best touch interface.
4) I use Kindle to read e-books. This tablet has a beautiful Kindle application that works.
5) There are many subtle things. When you click on a link in an email, the screen automatically splits into two parts, one for the email and other for the browser. Great feature.
6). The "desk top" or hidden PC is extremely convenient. Essentially this tablet is a PC and a tablet in one.
7) "Reading list" is a great feature. Any time you don't have enough time to finish reading something you can add it to read offline in your "reading list". A very neat version of this thing will be available to you offline when you want it.
All in all the number of times I turn my laptop on has gone down by almost ten folds since I bought this device. Some of the features that I have written above may be available in other devices as well.
What is lacking:
1) The device took some time to set up. Multiple windows update (until I finally upgraded to WIndows 8.1). All free though.
2) My bank's App still does not run on this device. It seems Wells Fargo still does not have an app for Windows 8.1.
3) The device stopped responding at least on one occasion. I had to reboot it.
