I just love it! I looked at long time for something this size and this light and just wasn't ready to spend close to $900 bucks after taxes. Somehow my Best buy sales guy was just right on to it and found me the last one in gold which is so pretty. I paid just under $600. It's perfect for what I need to just hop around the house or hop onto an airplane where it worked perfectly and linked to the in-air entertainment and my Bose 700s seamlessly! I bought it on early Black Friday and highly recommend it if you're looking for a cute lightweight computer you can hold open with one hand while holding your papers or your cocoa (or both) in the other. Bonus to have Bluetooth and a touch screen! I couldn't believe it for the price, seriously I was ready to give up the touch screen so I was thrilled it came with a touch screen!
A nice, small and light laptop. Bought primarily for having around school. It has good enough specs to run more intensive programs such as solidworks and less intensive games. Would recommend for anyone who is looking for a decently priced, light laptop who does not want to spend a lot of money on overkill specs.
On my personal opinion it was the best thing I can bought here I love my new favorite small laptop I am not much interesting woman in the electronic things but it was exactly the laptop just I need for my personal use few time explained at my daughter how I wanted it then remember she laughed bc I said wish it in the pink color lol I am so happy with this really, good price and is very easy to use just I loved it!
Solid device w/premium quality device, great price

My wife upgraded to this one from her old Surface Pro 3 and absolutely loves it! The overall feel from the body to key comfort got her attention. Awesome battery life, camera, microphones and performance.
When I was looking to get a new laptop, I knew I wanted a surface, I just wasn’t sure which one. This one was in a good price range and was what I needed for what I was planning to do (writing). This laptop is nothing overly special per day, but it’s exactly what I needed.
