Rated 4 out of 5 by cmmelton2 Really pricey for low specs, but worth a try
I'm picky about my computers. I'll admit that openly.
I didn't want to like this computer at this price. Its expensive for such low specs! However, you can really tell microsoft took the time to make this a quality machine. I'm glad this came with so much stuff for free, including the pricey keyboard cover, which I think this computer needs to come standard with.
I wish this tablet came with the option to go up in ram when buying, I would have went for the 8 gb instead, but 4 gb is ok for me since I use this as a smaller version of my powerhouse computer. I do push the memory to the max sometimes with the tabs and other things open.
Do NOT think this computer can be a replacement for your main computer if you want. It does great for basic note taking, emails, BASIC web browsing, and maybe a card game or two. Don't expect this to multitask well though with the low specs.
I plan to keep this computer, but I'm glad I have a supplemental computer to really do work when I need it and its so nice to have this lightweight tablet when I want to do lightweight stuff that doesn't require such a bulky laptop, such as light web browsing, watching netflix, etc.
The magnetized pen is good, but you'll need to put it somewhere where it won't get lost because the connection to the metal isn't that strong. A cheap case from amazon and a glass screen protector is an important thing for this computer. Plan on buying it when you buy this computer and that should also help with the pen issue.
Oh and typing on this keyboard is a very unexpected and nice pleasure. It has a good texture to the keys when you type on it and a great distance from each other, so you can easily touch type. The trackpad is very responsive too.
Once you figure out how to use the kickstand along with the keyboard attachment, this is not hard to use in a lap at all.
I just wish I would have purchased this when it was on its one day only price. It would have been a better value, but I don't regret this purchase.

Although my surface may be smarter than me. Just love it.

This is exactly what I was searching for. I am tired of dragging my laptop around everywhere with me and I could not get my iPad to work on all of my work programs. This does everything I want and need and is small and compact. I am in love!

My new favorite toy. Loaded all my programs in and use it as if it were a laptop. Keyboard is awesome too. Absolutely love this.
