Ratings and reviews

Rated 5 out of5 by fromWowHaving purchased the Surface RT then Pro 2 I was surprised to see the Pro 3 come out so quickly and also disappointed with the lack of accessories released specifically the dock for the 2, well the Pro 3 has just blown me away with the vast improvement. Great size and weight, so powerful and for the few games I play they scream along now. The dock is available and again is a vast improvement, if you use your Surface for work and play and it is perfect for that a dock is essential. All in all this device shines and I love it. It will be hard to top this but Microsoft will as Surface is the reference device for tomorrows computing needs.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromHand writing recognition and onenote - Its awesomeI bought the surface for this one feature alone - good memories of the Courier and its potential 10 years ago!I now have the ability to take notes in a meeting (and not look like a rude typing goose), convert those from ink to text, and email / share them to relevant parties. The ability to find those notes for customers months later has been a life saver!I must say, the first two surfaces were pretty average in terms of price vs. performance, but the 3 pro has been pretty good.The only gripe i have is that the pen is a bit flaky, about once a day i need to take the back off the pen to 'reboot' it (hang over from the windows 95 days?)all in all, recommend it! love it!

Rated 3 out of5 by fromPleased, but Windows 8.1 needs to be far slickerHaving moved from an iPad to a Surface with docking station, I am delighted to be able to use the same device as a desktop PC and a tablet, and to be able to run Windows applications on the move.What stands out a mile though is very poor treatment of screen font size and pinch zooming. My desk screen is the usual 24+ inches, so I need natural screen resolution and font sizes on that, simultaneously with a magnified view on the Surface. There are many examples of apps which look either ridiculously huge on the large auxiliary screen or too small on the Surface screen. For example, a major step back in usability from the iPad is the Windows 8.1 terminal server client app, which doesn't support pinch zooming.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromSome nice design points but overpricedFar too expensive for what it is, especially when you get stung a lot for the keyboard cover (not great quality). I've applied all updates (have the i5 version) and it still gets uncomfortably hot under prolonged use - 5 minutes watching video is enough to get the fan going and the back to become very warm. I've also had the pen fail a few times (need to pop the batteries out and back in). Used to have unexpected shutdowns but that seems to have gone with recent updates. It packs a lot in a small system but I think we need to wait for the next iteration with the better CPU's that generate less heat (and Windows 10 and its supposed improvements may help the experience).

Rated 4 out of5 by fromTurns a Mac User's Head...I've spent most of the last six years using Macs...but this is the first time in ages I've absolutely LOVED a Microsoft/Windows computer. First off, I love the Surface Pen, both for taking notes in OneNote and for drawing. Best digital ink experience I've had. The screen is lovely...especially for watching YouTube. I'm finding the Type Cover and the upraised, magneted position quite a good experience. I really can't fault this device...and that's a Mac user saying that. Heresy...

Rated 4 out of5 by fromSteep Learning CurveI bought 2 Surface Pro 3 tablets, one for my wife and one as a laptop replacement for me. Going from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 and Office 365 presents some challenges, some things are difficult to access with the keyboard attached (for example the ellipsis at the bottom of the screen when you have a browser window open) and I've had all sorts of difficulty attaching an external USB DVD drive to load some software. In general we both like the devices, good clear screen, good combination of touch, keyboard and pen but still learning how to use them effectively

Rated 5 out of5 by fromIt really can be a desktop replacementI have used my Surface for a few months now. My main use is for software development. It works really well for this task. The Surface can be your desktop and be a funky tablet. I don't play games so I cannot comment on that but for all things development the Surface is lightning fast. I use it daily and I find I can run up to two days (work days) on battery. I have seen many reports about only 6 hours on battery and I think the more full screen motion you have the less battery life you get which makes sense. Overall I am very pleased I switched to the Surface Pro 3 as my main device.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromPerfect for studentsI received an i5 model recently and it's great. As an engineering student, I need full office, a good palm-blocking stylus, and the ability to run complex programs (MATLAB, Solidworkd, MoTeC). The Surface pro 3 can do all of this, be quick about it, and is wrapped up in an impossibly thin and lightweight package.For someone who needs a day to day devices that they're carrying around and needs to get real work done, the surface pro 3 is the perfect device and the only device that comes close on the market.
