Microsoft Surface Pro review

It’s a compelling proposition: all the power and application compatibility of a laptop running a proper desktop operating system, all the portability and convenience of a tablet, all mixed together in one package. That’s the core idea behind Microsoft’s Surface tablets but, as we saw with the Surface for Windows RT a few months ago, its ARM-based nature resulted in some substantial drawbacks. Namely: app selection.

I’ve been waiting to review the Microsoft Surface Pro for a long time. When I decided to make the switch to Windows 8, I did a pretty thorough survey of the computing landscape, and Microsoft’s second Surface seemed like it might be the one for me.

Microsoft has proven it can build a nice-looking tablet with the Surface RT. Unfortunately, though, that was one of the only things the RT had going for it, and the brutal performance problems outweighed the aesthetic niceties. The Surface Pro was for months just a mythical device, Microsoft’s unreleased attempt to blend both beauty and power into the perfect Windows 8 machine.

I’ve now been using the Surface Pro for a week or so, and I’ve had a real chance to see if it’s able to live up to my lofty expectations. Is it my next? Is it yours? Let’s find out.

If you have the Blu-ray disc, do you want to play Blu-ray movies to Surface.
