The Examiner has interviewed some new Surface Pro owners 2 days after they took their Windows 8 tablets home, and found them pretty satisfied with their devices.
"I’ve had this thing by my side for the past three days," says Jesse Fuentes, an engineer in Los Angeles." It is by far the best device I have ever owned. I can do everything I can with this that I could my MacBook Air and iPad," he continues.
Yong Lee, a marketing manager, also fell in love. "I am more of an Apple person than Microsoft. But the Surface Pro is a better piece of hardware than Apple has ever made," Lee says. Lee agrees that the battery life is subpar, but it’s not a disaster.
"This is a laptop replacement, not a tablet replacement," says high school math teacher Jennifer Parsons. "The battery life is on par with most ultrabooks. Students can send me their work in PDF format and I can grade it right on the Surface Pro and then send it back," she continues.
The Examiner concludes the owners “all love their device” which bodes well for Microsoft’s plans to introduce more Surface products in the future.
