My first impressions - of actually using a Surface Pro 3 - after a few days are really, REALLY good. I'm using the i5 Surface Pro 3 and I've got to tell you it is an amazing piece of hardware.

As for software, I'm running applications like MS Office Professional, CS5, and Sony Vegas. The design is great. I have no significant issues with heat. I've been enjoying extended Amazon Prime streaming service. First, the tablet has gotten "warm" but there are no heat issues. I even went so far as to place it on my bare legs after several hours and there was no discomfort. As an aside, this is the first mobile device where I didn't feel the need to use external speakers. And whatever they're doing with the Dolby codex is working. For two speakers I was very nicely surprised by the sound field for such a small device. It's far from a high end sound system, but it is heads above anything compatible.

As for processing power this is more than capable. I have also been playing Civilization 5 and Tropico 5, as well as Office apps, and this takes anything I've thrown at it. Reports of wake up issues on sleep or rebooting don't seem to be present for me. Microsoft did promise a fix that appears to have made it into release systems. The wake up speed on sleep is instant. Boot up and shut down speeds are much faster than my already capable (512GB SSD and 16GB RAM with an older i7 CPU).

The keyboard is more than capable. I switch between a desktop and the Surface Pro 3 effortlessly. The trackpad isn't as good as a mouse but the thing is, once you start getting used to the stylus and touchscreen the trackpad really is moot. The only reason I would use the trackpad is because I've forgotten to use the screen or stylus. In other words, the weaknesses on this system get gobbled up by its strengths and then some. If you're capable of changing habits you'll do just fine. After all, touchscreen really is more efficient than a mouse or trackpad - so the return for that change is more than worthwhile.

My favourite feature - the stylus. Taking notes in OneNote is really well done. I can draw process maps and take meeting notes so effortlessly. Microsoft finally created an integrated writing solution - and yes, they added a Pen Addin for Office apps as well. Anyone who facilitates meetings and scribes notes for later reference will love this. The weight is amazing - even with the type cover I can carry this around with me comfortably. As a side note, the screensize ratio really is worth it - which reminds me of how good my Amazon Prime viewing experience was last night.

I've used an iPad in the past for a while before setting it down for its lack of functionality, and obviously, the Surface Pro 3 shows it a thing or twenty. Next to a powerful laptop it more than holds its own. The iPad was fun as a tablet, but the Surface Pro 3 is both fun AND functional - It is FUNctional. I do agree about how close Microsoft has gotten to getting the hybrid approach right.

All in all, this is the most fun I have ever had with a new mobile device. I can see why those locked into the Apple ecosystem will hesitate. But if you are on the fence, or a Windows user, you will really enjoy this. And yes, the cool factor is immense. Who would have imagined that Microsoft would design a device that looks just as cool as an iThingy...

It was sadly time to upgrade my computer system. I'd been holding off as long as possible because I'd heard many horror stories about Windows 8. My son went with me to purchase a new computer and strongly urged me toward this model. First, the things I like: it's very small and very light. Windows 8 is set up more like an Ipad or Mac so I guess it's a good thing I'm learning how to use it. The down side: it is extremely frustrating to try and figure it out. The instructions leave huge information holes as they assume you know how to get from A to H and can follow the steps from there. After two days of struggling, I finally downloaded the virus protection program. Am now trying to download Windows Office, so far unsuccessfully. The other big complaint for me is the small, VERY small print. When I change the settings to the largest size font, everything is so huge I can't see it all in one screen. My son (a Mac user) will be here for Christmas and I'm sincerely hoping he can help me figure out the system enough for it to be useful. Meanwhile, the jury is definitely out deliberating.

surface pro 3

By keith b

Comments about Microsoft Surface Pro 3 12-Inch Tablet, Intel Core i5, 128GB (MQ2-00001):

got the surface pro at staples in Nov 2014
very good machine . the pros with the surface , Microsoft has no junkware installed on Surface pro so it runs smooth.Also by buying at staples your getting a fresh machine not a rebuilt one or installed with cheaper chips like some discount big box stores price was $100 less than Microsoft store at the time .i also receive staples rewards with the purchase.
with the keyboard onboard( not included) it weighs less than most laptops
the touch screen works great with Windows 8.1 the lighted keyboard sold separete makes it like a laptop A big plus the Surface pro 3 will be able to update to Windows 10 when available from Microsoft later this year.

The Surface To Get

By Reviewer AX

from New York

This customer has reached Vice President level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Microsoft Surface Pro 3 12-Inch Tablet, Intel Core i5, 128GB (MQ2-00001):

We talk about Tablets, but this is the Ultimate Tablet and don't just take my word for it. With an i5 no Cortex, Snapdragons or Exynos' will be touching this anytime soon. If you already have both a laptop and a tablet, you will probably think about discarding those as this may very well be replacing both of them.

Though not as light as an iPad Air nor does it have even half the battery life, it is meant for Desktop level work and on that note, 12inches are much easier on the eyes than any 10inch will ever be. Do get the Keyboard.
