  • Microsoft Surface Pro
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Microsoftsurfacepro - January 17, 2022

    So far the Surface Pro is very easy to use and so nice that I can use it as a laptop or a tablet. Screen is large enough so that I can read the information without enlarging the print.

  • A Nearly Perfect Windows Computer
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Tansen - October 18, 2021

    From the start, I've been a Surface Pro fan. From the surface pro 3, 4, then 6, I have always been a fan of the high resolution screens, compact yet comfortable type keyboard, and slim, high quality construction. As the years went on, I did feel that the large bezels were becoming more and more dated, and with more recent smart phones and gaming monitors sporting higher refresh rates, I came to avoid using my surface pro 6 in favor of mt smart phone and it's high resolution, high refresh rate screen. With the announcement of the surface pro 8, I knew things were about to change. Thinner bezels, larger screen, same footprint, and of course that gorgeous 120 hz display were game changers. I pre-ordered on day 1, and having used the surface pro 8 with (sold separately) the type cover, I cannot say I was disappointed. Body: New aluminum instead of old magnesium means heavier, but more solid construction. The weight is a bit more than previously, but still light enough to hold on your laptop in tablet mode and browse the internet in front of the tv. Light enough to fit into a nice slim bag and carry around to work or the coffee shop alike. Construction, as always is solid and leaves nothing to be desired. The kick stand is as stiff and reassuring as always. Display: The bulk of the improvements are in the screen. Surface displays have always been higher pixel density than their contemporaries. The Surface Pro 8 offers the same impressive pixel density as before, only now covers a larger area, with smaller bezels, and with a 120Hz display. I can honestly say that the 120 Hz display is the single greatest asset any laptop can have, as long as resolution and specs are otherwise decent. Even scrolling around Facebook, writing emails, or zipping around Windows 11 are an absolute joy with the higher refresh screen. Viewing angles are very good, though maybe not as wide as an OLED screen. Contrast ratio is very good for an LED display. Having played around with the recently released Samsung Galaxy Books with their OLED screens, I can definitely say that this display is FAR superior to that one, with or without OLED. the refresh rate and resolution are easily the most important aspects of any display. As for the touch screen, it is responsive as always, no complaints. Battery: I tend to use the Surface Pro 8 in short bursts, either a few hours at the coffee shop or in front of the TV, then back onto the charge. At the full 120Hz refresh rate along with high brightness (which I tend to use more often than not), I got maybe 3-4 hours out of the machine. I am more interested in the experience than the endurance, though needs may vary. Keyboard: Though the tablet-style use case has improved with the new Surface Pro 8 alongside Windows 11, the keyboard is still generally a must for most productivity. The Surface keyboard Pro (or whatever it is called these days) continues to be the best option. Backlit keys, satisfying action, good key travel, I have absolutely no complaints. Software: Windows 11 makes it's introduction with the new Surface line. I had been using the Windows 11 beta for a few weeks, and the last few updates has brought the beta in line with release day functionality and stability. At first I didn't particularly like the new start menu, and frankly it doesn't really add much to the mix, but the core of Windows has always been ease of use. I have my most frequently used apps and website on the start menu, about 8 or 9. and nothing else. The recommended apps section on the bottom is entirely useless to me, and it seems many feel this way as well. I am hoping that they give us the option to completely remove the recommended apps area, and instead allow us to put a few of the (admittedly decent) widgets there instead of leaving it a big waste of space. Otherwise, the interface is snappy, responsive, and doesn't really leave me wanting much more. As for the widget section on the left of the screen, it is reasonably functional, but again I'd much rather have a few key widget in the start menu and nothing more. Windows generally has been a good way of accessing apps, files, and website, and it is no different with Windows 11. Conclusion: The Surface Pro 8 is a nearly perfect Windows 11 computer. Portable, light weight, powerful, sturdy, and somewhat well priced for the specs. The high res, high refresh rate display are game changing, and I think competing hardware makers (dell, hp, lenovo) have a long way to go before they can compete dollar for dollar with the Surface Pro 8 Marco
