I chose to get the new Surface Pro 4 based on advertised capabilities. The use of the Pen is one of its best features. This opens so many doors for teaching, tutoring and illustrating complexities that a normal laptop is not capable of doing easily. I loved the size, keyboard, and amazing screen....but that is where it ends. Unfortunately, I had this device replaced 4 times due to system glitches and malfunctions that could not be resolved. Honestly, I think that Microsoft should have really waited on releasing this device. There are way too many issues both with Windows 10 and the device itself. The screen would randomly stop responding to touch, the display drivers would crash, and the device would fail to wake up from sleep-mode. Also, the battery life is no where close to the 9 hours that Microsoft claims. Maybe if you turned it on untouched. The results were maybe 4.5-5 hours just using the web and Office. Unfortunately, this was not a stellar experience. I loved the device when it worked, but it failed me when I needed it to work most. For instance, I was taking notes in a meeting with OneNote and closed the keyboard as we adjourned. When I got to my next appointment, the device would not wake. Thus, I had to do a hard shut down. This happened 4 more times when I was getting ready to teach. The last straw came last weekend when I was working on a couple of documents and closed up to go home. I got in and opened the device and nothing. The device was on in that you could hear a ping as you pressed the spacebar, but the screen was blank. I left for Best Buy and showed them the issue and returned the device and ending up buying a Mac. My local Best Buy is a great place and the service is the best. They should be commended for their professional service. Lastly, I did spend time with Microsoft support to resolve the issues. They reset my device, reinstalled the OS, deleted and added drivers, etc. After an exhausting 50+ total hours with Microsoft support, which always ended with wanting to send the device in for repairs, I finally gave up. The support personnel were nice, but it was the typical, outsourced MS support. Sending a new device to them only to get a refurbished replacement said to me that there were quality issues that needed to be addressed. All in all, some have purchased Pro’s and have had no issues. That is great for them. For me, I love the concept of this device, but I think it really needs work. Windows 10 is better than 8.1, but it is still not a tablet friendly OS. The device has amazing capabilities, but it is just unreliable at this point. I do hope that they get these issues resolved. It is a great device…if it worked. Until then, I am sticking with this Macbook. While it may not have the whiz-bag appeal of the Surface Pro, it works consistently and their support is exceptional. I am capable of running OS X and Windows quite well on this device. My recommendation is to hold on this device.
