Microsoft’s Surface Pro A Joy To Use. . . As A Notebook PC

The Houston Chronicle’s Dwight Silverman notes that Microsoft’s Surface Pro, which runs Windows 8 Professional and has no limitations on the software you can install is compromised as a tablet device, bulky, heavy, and expensive with relatively poor battery life comparted to, say, an iPad, but he still likes it a lot and would consider buying one if he was in the market for a thin, ultraportable Windows notebook – the Surface Pro being a much better notebook computer than it is a tablet.

Silverman summarizes that as a Windows notebook computer, the Surface Pro is a joy to use – very fast and responsive, thanks both to its processor and the use of an Solid State Drive for storage. The touchscreen is excellent, with no lag at all, and Windows 8′s interface feels like a natural extension of your gestures.
