David, Weston super Mare Serious Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I have office and home PC's plus mobile with Windows OS, so the Surface was the natural choice for a tablet. I eventually decided to buy the Surface Pro 2 rather than the Surface RT because it incorporated all the normal PC features I am used to for thirty years. The quality of the product and features is in every respect is without doubt very high; probably greater than my expectations considering this is a tablet in size, weight and price! I have also purchased the Microsoft 'Type' keyboard and a 'MiniSuit Classic' case to complete the picture.

I must say that I am very pleased with the device. The only challenge is learning Win 8.1!!

The idea to interconnect outlook, documents, photos etc, with all the different devices you have seamlessly via your Microsoft account/Onedrive is brilliant.
Bad points:
There are no real bad points at all about the Surface Pro 2. There is however a challenge to initially using the Win 8.1 OS when you have been living your life with Microsoft OS's (including networks) from DOS onwards. It just needs time, patience and experience to make it all flow in the way you would like. Do use the MS tutorials that are available to help the transition.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Runs everything. Really fast. Amazing price. Great design.
Bad points:
Windows bugs! Stupid thing wouldn't update to 8.1 until I changed the date manually. How can a company sell a product that can't even update out of the box without troubleshooting. Not a good first impression.

Runs a bit hot for a tablet and is a little heavy. Battery life is not great.

But I managed to get rid of a laptop, desktop and aging iPad 1. This does everything that all those old devices did.

Douglas, Edinburgh Linux Win Mac geek

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A real PC in a very slick tablet format.

Excellent value now that the price has dropped.

Once the initial issues are sorted out, it's very stable and reliable.

Wacom touch-sensitive pen.

Windows 8 Modern interface is lovely on a touch screen, and even the desktop is surprisingly usable with touch.
Bad points:
Terrible out-of-box experience:

- sticky residue left on pen by glue from cellophane packaging
- almost flat battery
- login errors caused by wrong time set on clock
- more than 160 updates to download before I could even upgrade to Win 8.1!

Windows 8.1 is still a bit of a mish-mash, and the available apps on the Store are woefully thin.

The Windows 8 habit of making you sideways scroll through text just doesn't work.
