Pros: I have an iPad Air, a Nexus 7,and a iPad 3. I also have 2x laptops, both C2D's. I am really impressed with this little computer hybrid, it's super fast, has a full size OS and it really doesn't look that bad. I was a little disappointed in the battery life (especially after the iPads), but battery life has never been a big problem for me (many electrical outlets where I'm at) I think Microsoft was on the money with this Hybrid. I have heard and read where the Haswell Surface Pro 2 i5 mode improves the battery life. Like I said earlier battery life was not a seller or non seller to me.
Cons: Not really that big of a con for me, was the dismal battery life and perhaps the over all thickness for a tablet (remember I came from an iPad Air) The dang price for the addon keyboard, which, IMO, is very necessary.
Other Thoughts: I really think this is the computer of the future. I do my main computing on 2x desktops (both i5 ivory bridges with 32 GB's of RAM) I also have a 6 core AMD (with only 16 GB's of RAM). I have Windows 7, I have windows 8 and even have the new trial Windows 10. If the new winders goes on the Pro with no hassles I may have one less desktop. (I like the new 10)READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Before installing one of these, Kingston SSDNow V300's, in a ThinkPad T61, 2.2 Ghz, a DELL Studio, 2.2 Ghz, a DIY Q6600, stock 2.40 Ghz, a DIY i5 2300, stock 2.8 Ghz, I thought the best way to speed up a computer was by adding more RAM. Although up to a point adding more Ram (the OS's sweet spot, I think with Windows 7 64bit is like 8 GB's) I was greatly impressed with these SSD's, boot time especially. It seems these SSD's are a close second for adding more speed with the adding of more RAM. (Cool running, quiet (no moving parts)
Cons: not by any means a con, but they are just too small. great boot drive.
Other Thoughts: Savin' up for a bigger SSD. I don't think I'll ever go back to a platter drive again. I've had several 10,000 rpm Raptors and even they didn't hold a candle to a SSD. (NEVER ANYTHING LESS THAN 7200 rpm)READ FULL REVIEW
