Microsoft Surface3 Pro

I've had one for about a week now and am extremely impressed. I got the one with an Intel i5 processor and 256G of storage with 8G ram. The 128G versions only come with 4G of ram. I wanted 8G because I use it. They bill it as a tablet that is a true laptop replacement, and I would have to agree, provided you purchase the Type keyboard cover.

As a tablet it's nice. A little bigger than an iPad, but still a nice size and weight. The kickstand is a great feature and will rotate to accommodate almost any position. The screen is bright and has 2160x1440 resolution for sharp pictures and HD video. Battery life on first use was about 10 hours of mixed use.

The keyboard cover attaches magnetically, and the magnets are so strong it actually pulls it into the correct position every time. It has a real nice feel to it, and feels natural. The one fail on the keyboard is there is no insert key. Since I use the insert key a lot, this is quite an annoyance. There is an insert key on the on-screen keyboard, but that's a pain. I had to find a program that lets me re-map one of the F keys to an insert key. That is really the only complaint so far.

All in all, I am a very happy camper.

I've been looking into one of these. Glad to read you like it so far.

I have had the surface pro 2 for a year now and still really like it. Although I don't use the keyboard that much as I like the touch screen.

I REALLY like it. I'm not a Microsoft fanboy, and not fond of Windows 8, but they nailed this. For the record, Windows 8 is much more tolerable on a tablet.

Can't wait to run RedHat from a USB stick on it.

Dana's got a 2 Pro. It's nice, but if you're using the keyboard it has to be on a flat surface, its not lap-friendly. I hate Windows 8 less than I hate Windows 7, so that's a plus.

I've been using the keyboard in my lap. It would be better on a table or a desk, but it's not bad at all. Of course, my lap has been shrinking so that is all subject to change.

I downloaded NetBeans last night, but couldn't get GlassFish to fire up for some reason. Not sure if it has anything to do with it being a tablet or not. More to come on that.

It switches between overwrite and insert modes for typing/editing text.

Everyone I've talked to that has one loves it. I'd consider one but I've already got an investment in my Mac laptop and iPad.

When you click the "Insert" key, the lettering should change to "Overwrite", unless your keyboard is broken...
































or unless there's a short between the chair and the keyboard...
