And there's this premium feel to it. The magnesium body feels very solid, the kickstand doesn't move if you don't want to and if you pair it with the Alcantara keyboard it's just a very different experience that you can feel. And yet it's so light. You'll have a disappointing experience touching a plastic laptop after using one of these.
The downside is that it isn't precisely cheap. If you want it to be more than a tablet, you'll have to add the type cover keyboard, around $100 or more if you buy a Microsoft one (it's also great but I'm not reviewing it here). This just happens to be an affordable Surface product, and they're always expensive. But also so versatile and innovative that you'll find they worth it.
It's also very sturdy. I found that out yesterday (there was a dog involved), it fell from a feet high right on the edge of the screen. I thought I would find a shattered or cracked display, but there was nothing on it. Not even on the edge, not a single dent or scratch on the whole thing, and it's working like if nothing happened (I'm using it to write this review).
Most people complain about relatively short battery life but you can work for hours on it. I get it to work the whole day with the screen at its darkest and the battery saving mode on. Unless you use it outside that's enough brightness and performance for what you'll be using it. Another common complain are the thick bezels, but they're there for a reason, which becomes very obvious when you use it like a tablet.
This might not be the device for you if what you want is high performance for CPU or graphic demanding tasks (and of course it's far from being a gamer PC) or if you really hate Windows. But if you're looking for a portable PC/tablet you can't go wrong with this. It's light, sturdy, completelly silent, has a sleek desing and offers a full desktop experience. And if you already own a Surface Pro you'll find this fascinating and even charming. It's a scaled down version of it.
I use this as a secondary computer to surf web, watch Netflix, work on MS Office documents...works exactly as advertised.
Just a couple things on the other review.
1. Upgrading to Windows Home from S mode was a breeze. Not sure what the other review was talking about, and it's free.
2. Your going to have updates. This product was built and packaged way before they could update it with the latest firmware and other neccesarry improvements. Before you start using it, always go to update it to the latest software and firmware improvements. It didn't take long at all.
I can't download PDF files from my Gmail account, so much of my email is useless.
When I try to login to Steam, no typing interface pops up, so I can't login and access my games.
I can't download a Kindle reader, so I can't access my books.
I can't access Amazon Prime streaming video, so I can't access videos! NOTHING WORKS!!!
In sum, I spent $540 (including tax) on this piece of garbage, and nothing -- absolutely nothing -- I planned to use it for works. Maybe one day Microsoft will work out the kinks. For now, stay away.
