Surface Pro, tablet, tablet PC, Windows 8, Windows 8 tablets
There’s a lot to love about the Surface Pro. I enjoyed my time with it, and I’m not looking forward to packing it up and shipping it back to Microsoft. Owning my own Surface Pro may very well be a short-term goal I’ll have to pursue.
So, what are the five things I love most about the Surface Pro?:
- Well-engineered hardware
- The Windows 8 Search charm
- The digitizer pen
- The Touch and Type keyboard covers
- It’s a real PC running the full Windows 8 Pro operating system
As with the five biggest complaints, there are a couple things here that are unique to Windows 8 rather than the Surface Pro. Actually, only one really–the Search charm. The fifth point–the fact that the Surface Pro runs the full Windows 8 operating system and all traditional Windows software–is actually a function of the Surface Pro (or Windows 8 Pro tablets in general). That point should not be underestimated, either. There are a lot of great Windows PCs out there, and there are a lot of awesome tablets, but having one device that can fill both roles simultaneously brings a little something extra to the table and opens up new possibilities.
