    What a surprise

    I'm just another typical IT guy who has pretty much built, owned, used, and repaired every type of device you can think of. When shopping for personal devices, I often times cringe at the thought of spending my own hard earn money when I can just use my business devices. At the end of the day, I still need something at home for personal use and my current laptop is at the 5-6 year mark. I had my eyes set on the Surface Pro i5 or i7 but the price is difficult for me to justify despite my constant desire for having the latest and greatest. When I saw the Core M go on sale during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday week, I couldn't resist getting it and trying it out. Honestly I was prepared to return it the moment I picked it up but once I started using it, I realized it's everything I wanted and needed performance wise. I have since used it in basic IT troubleshooting, meetings, note taking (lots of OneNote), and presentations. It's passed the wife and kids test too with their relentless urge to use it as a sketch-board and online shopping. It's handled everything I've thrown at it including having obscene number of tabs open in Chrome. The fact it's not weighted down with bloatware that you often find from other manufacturers is a HUGE plus. It's pretty much ready to go out of the box without investing hours of cleanup before you can put it through its paces. I think it's time to put the old laptop into retirement and keep the Surface Pro. Overall, if you looking for something with lightweight use (non-CAD apps or GPU intensive games), I think you'll be happy with the Core M. As for gaming, games such as Minecraft run flawlessly and there's plenty of YouTube videos and sites that show benchmarks for the Core M. It's a bargain when it's on sale considering it comes with the type cover. Would I have rather owned the i5 or i7 models? Of course but only because of my infatuation for having the best but those prices are a little scary for my needs. Needless to say, I'm impressed.

    I've debated between many different computers before settling on this Surface Pro. I tried the MacBook Pro (non-touchbar 256 GB model), the MacBook (m3), Lenovo Yoga 910, and SurfaceBook. I was concerned the Intel m3 and 4 GB of RAM wouldn't be enough. It's not a powerhouse, but it's worked great for what I've thrown at it. I don't game with my machine. I use it for work, on the go. I always have the Mail app open, Edge (12+ tabs), Internet Explorer w/ Silverlight, Excel, and often include other apps like the Calendar, Calculator and other apps. I haven't noticed any hesitation even with all of the above apps open simultaneously and including the multiple tabs. Color me impressed! Plus, the main reason I was willing to go with the m3 instead of an i5 or i7 was the better battery life. I've had the computer unplugged all day and never had a problem where I needed my charger. Some reviewers have complained about light bleed on the Surface Pro line; I haven't noticed that. Mine has been running well and I have no complaints. I've been using a MacBook Air since 2013, but I've never been afraid of Windows. MacOS has grown old and stale. Windows 10 is different than the Windows 7 I used last time I was in the Microsoft ecosystem, but it's not too difficult to adjust to. One of the biggest things I was concerned about losing when leaving Apple was their Coherence functionality between iPhone and MacOS. Using Windows 10 though, they've done a lot to include the same functions. I can open a website in Safari on my iPhone, the continue using it on my Surface. I can use the To Do app on my iPhone and it syncs just fine with the same app on my Surface. The only function I miss is being able to send/receive text messages on my computer. I suspect Microsoft is working on that too though because a friend says his Android has that ability. Definitely give this a second look if you're considering a computer. You'll be glad you did.

    Great so far, but...

    The Surface Pro Core M so far, has been great for basic web surfing, online banking/shopping, streaming on Hulu, and checking emails. The picture is super clear and bright screen. I like the flip stand, and backlit keyboard is great for laptop use in the dark. I actually have not used all the other features yet, but will eventually try them out. My only problem (for now) was that the Surface timed out and turned off on me!...while I was web surfing...sooo hmmm, I checked the battery and I still had 43% left...ok. So, I turned it back on, and thought it was just a 1 time occurrence. I had 2 other browsers open as I was switching back and forth. I proceeded to do some online banking and as I was scrolling down, it turned off AGAIN! Ok, so, I thought my screen saver/lock screen was set for less than a 1 minute....no. Then I checked to see if the Surface was in "Tablet Mode"...no. So, I basically dismissed it (again). This happened 2 days after my purchase on Black Friday. I'm pretty patient and like the compact design and love how I can take it any where, so I planned to see if it happened again before I take advantage of the free Geek Support that came with this purchase. Well, it turned off 3 times (again) the following day, while I was checking my email. During these times, I was using it as a laptop (w/keyboard), but occasionally, touched the screen to scroll up, as I do not have the Surface Pen. So, now, I have an appointment for Geek Support...and definitely will be looking at the option of returning for a new product (was previously looking at the Samsung Galaxy Book) or exchange for a new Surface... Other than the turning off on me while actually using the Surface, for $700 (regardless of the Door Buster Deal), it should come with the Surface Pen as well. As for recommending this, I will put yes, but will obviously let them know of my situation.

    Great laptop and work tablet

    This is more than a tablet because of the interface with Microsoft Office. I am an English professor here and needed a lightweight laptop because I walk quite a distance to get to my classroom from the parking lot. My old laptop weighed in at 5.75 pounds - this one is ultralight and easy to use although if you don't touch the keyboard for more than 5 seconds, the screen has a tendency to switch itself off (?) - this can get a little inconvenient while lecturing. The Surface is not as intuitive as the Mac - installation of the software was a bit of a pain because you had to have a Chrome account before installing, which I didn't have. Here's an idea: why not sell the Surface with the Office software already loaded on it so you don't have to fiddle around with software codes and figure where to enter them? That would have saved about two hours of aggravation. This is what stops me from giving it a 5 star review. Nevertheless, I am thrilled with the weight of the Surface (at 1.7 pounds) and at the sale price, I basically got the keyboard for free. The keyboard is very easy to operate and typing on it is a breeze. I'm learning more about it and what it can do all the time, and I am looking forward to buying the Surface pen and Dial to start drawing with it.

    Travel PC

    I purchased the Surface Pro for a travel PC. I have a iPad and 17" laptop and was looking for something small with full Windows OS. However after using the Surface Pro for a few weeks I have come to the conclusion that I don't use the Surface Pro as a tablet; without the keyboard. The kickstand limits the flexibility of the device. For example you cannot use the keyboard without the kickstand pulled out. As the keyboard hinge cannot support the weight of the screen, unlike a traditional laptop. Therefore a traditional laptop requires less table depth, distance from keyboard to hinge, than the Surface Pro. Due to the distance from the hinge to the kickstand. This may become an issue with narrow tables like at a coffee shop counter, airplane tray table, or laptop arm attached to a desk. Additionally unlike a traditional laptop, if the person on the airplane in the seat in front of you reclines their seat, the screen on the Surface Pro cannot tilt forward, towards you. Only backwards. I also find the Surface Pro less comfortable when lying down on a bed and on an uneven surface. I would only recommend the Surface Pro, if you are absolutely sure you will use as a tablet. I don't. I may move to a 360 flip.

    I love my surface pro. I needed for my college because i had an apple and my apple would not work on the server at my college. This surface joined the server with out a problem compare to all the problems i had with my apple devices on the server. It is easy to transfer to campus and home everyday compare to my other laptop. I love the windows hello too. To me it feels more secure then typing in a password. it makes me feel better when i log in on campus because if someone walks by me and seeing me put in my password I would be nervous that they figured out my password. versus having windows hello and I don't have to worry about passwords. I love the battery life on here too. I love how I do not have to bring my charger With me to college. The only downfall with the charger is that i think it's a little to short. especially if I have to charge on campus because if i don't have a close outlet I am going to have trouble charging it.

    I bought this basic bundle for 629 USD on black Friday. The M3 7Y30 is supper capable for what it is. The device is snappy and even with its low RAM of 4GB I can have multiple tabs open on the browser (RAM HOG), multiple adobe PDFs, Word Documents, and many other programs without a lot of slowing down. If the device is plugged in, it’s certainly a lot snappier and if you use Intel XTU you can see that it goes from 4.5 Watt to 15 Watt, allowing the CPU to reach its maximum GHz without throttling. I have tuned it using XTU to under-volt it and that way I can keep the temperature down and the battery life a bit longer. Overall the battery life is excellent. I chose the M3 over the i5 due to battery life and cost. The i5, 4GB, 128GB won’t be a lot faster due to its limited RAM, and if I went with the i5, 8GB, 256GB (Ideal set up for the i5), it would have been a lot more money. I already have multiple machines, so this one was purely for portability and now raw power. Goods -Battery life -Screen (Bright and Clear with minimal light bleed) -Power to portability ratio -Type cover is pretty nice -Portability -Quality Bads -I have not found any yet, well maybe the price outside of a deal!
