    The Tablet That's Replacing My Laptop

    Microsoft Surface Pro tablets are incredible and I have wanted one since I first saw them advertised! The Pro OS lets you install any application on it and the fact that it comes pre-installed with WIndows 10 is just amazing! I work from home a lot as well as on the road and for quite a while now I have been wanting a Surface to replace the bulky laptop that I carry around. And wow, the Surface does not disappoint! I went with the Surface 3 over the Surface 4 due to the heavy price tag of the 4 but also because the Surface 3 allows you to expand the memory using a MicroSD card, which is an incredible feature because the price goes up with the more on-board memory you buy the unit with. Go with a Surface and you will not be disappointed!

    I got this surface pro when my laptop became undependable. The BestBuy folks do NOT like Apple products so they did not recommend them. The first one I bought I returned, because I thought the camera was faulty. However, the camera on the new one was just is poor. I have been using an iPad for several years and was spoiled by its camera. Surface pro has been harder for me to learn. I bought the geek plan, and have talked to them on the phone several times. It has been difficult for me to navigate (I am not a computer whiz). They've been very helpful, however it closes windows unexpectedly, icons move or disappear, The only thing, unfortunately, that I will be doing with it is word processing with the Microsoft office program I purchased. Disappointed.

    When I first went to BB in April, I had purchased the HP Envy which was similar in style to the Surface Pro. What a mistake! It had so many issues and was way too heavy (don't ever do it) I finally found wonderful help in Tiffany and Mike and they exchanged it for me. I love it! I have yet to have any issues with it and am able to get work done. Also, I was told that the Pro is the only version that is able to download programs instead of just apps. Bottom line is I would never choose anything else!

    I like nearly everything about the Surface Pro 3. It is light weight, easy to use, versatile and functional. I use it all the time. There are issues with some of the Windows preinstalled Apps. The Mail App, People App, and Outlook 13 are problematic and lack usefulness. I use gmail which is not compatible without installing Chrome as the default browser. Once I did that, all my gmail accounts and functions work perfectly.

    The Surface Pro 3 replaces my dying HP laptop, I have much more convenience with the smaller size and much-lighter weight while sacrificing none of the larger unit's abilities. It was extremely easy to set up and I easily can take it anywhere I go. I began using it with only the built-in keyboard, but I've purchased the keypad and much prefer using that, which serves also as a hard-case cover,.

    I am amazed by how fast this little tablet runs, i am using it for my college classes to google and search things, to make notes in class, only downfall is, that i am not used to touch scree and pen to much, so i might go ahead and purchase a keyboard, the battery life is good, i am happy with this item. Would not recommend for kids

    I bought the base model Surface Pro 3. 60 gig hard drive with 4 gigs of memory. It has already replaced my regular laptop and is about a 1/4 the weight. Windows 10 is a breeze and the touch screen is very handy; if I need to, I can use a wireless mouse and the attached keyboard... but the virtual keyboard serves me well in most situations.

    Picked this up to replace my old gen 2 iPad. Spent a couple hours setting it up and trying to get around using a combination of touch and stylus and could never get use to it. It also has all the drawbacks of using a windows pc. Maybe I'm not the target user for this but I can't think of anyone that I would recommend this to.

    I love the size and the feel, I love the incredible resolution. But for me, I'm not getting the advertised battery life at all. Like 6 hours. And I'm not using it super heavily. I am leaving it on, but not with tons of stuff open or running. I plan to have it checked out. If it is really this bad I might return it.

    Bought this as a laptop replacement. The detachable keyboard with magnetic attachment is a class of its own. Comes with windows 10 preinstAlled. The tiltable feature is comfort to the eyes. Keyboard keys are smooth and elegant with nice spacing.overall great product.

    I have been sold on Surface Tablets since day 1. Very reliable, light, and effective for me. Didn't give it 5 stars due to Windows 10 platform issues with existing Microsoft software products. Which doesn't make sense when its all Windows.

    i would not consider this a tablet, I purchased the keyboard and us it more than I actually use my laptop. Since I use more than I thought I would, I replaced it for with the surface 4 because the surface 4 has more space and the screen is larger.

    I got this to replace a broken desktop and it is wonderful. Paired with the docking station for easy charging and connection to usb keyboard/mouse makes it very convenient as both a tablet and sit down computer.

    I think the Surface is a great item. It's a good replacement for a laptop. I struggle to use Windows, because I'm a Apple girl. I prefer Apple, but some of my software is for Windows. I like the fact this is a tablet.

    I had one of the original Surface's and liked it pretty much except got the narrow keyboard. Anyway, I gave it to my daughter and upgraded to the Surface Pro 3 which is just slightly larger but much more useable

    I use this for work and I have to say its very convenient to have. The weight is perfect and I can take this anywhere. The only downfall is Windows 10- it is not user friendly. If anything, its confusing.

    Bought this for work purposes and it exceeds everything I would have ever thought. I own a couple different tablets and this is so fast, clean, durable, and just simply awesome.

    The Surface Pro three is excellent for people on the go. However, I think the keyboard should be included for the price.

    I am a huge fan of Apple products, so I was surprised to find myself choose the Surface over the Macbook Air. It simply feels like the future of computing and far more intuitive.
