One online review says:
"What Microsoft was trying to do with Windows 8 and Surface was to reimagine Windows. The objective was to produce a new operating system that would go toe-to-toe with the iPad and the Android pretenders (ie: tablets). But all Surface Pro 3 customers are left with is an (admittedly nice) laptop, which runs Windows, with a pen. It's Windows XP Tablet PC Edition all over again now."
A 2nd online review says:
"It took several tries, but Microsoft has finally delivered a device that lives up to the bold promise of its Surface (ie: tablet) line."
