Should I get a Surface Pro?
      #44477 - 04/05/13 03:24 AM

I've needed a new laptop/tablet/thing for a long time and since hearing about the Surface pro last year, I became quite interested in it, as it everything I am looking for. I live in UK, so am still waiting for it to be released...
I want something lightweight, portable, but still be able to run full windows applications. I need to be able to do word processing, play light games, and have a good display for my media. Hence I am thinking more Tablet/laptop as opposed to laptop/tablet (ie, the Lenovo Yoga.) I am about to go to university at the end of the year to study computer science.
Would you recommend the Surface Pro? Or is there something else which I should look at?


Also, how long do you expect it to be until it is released in the UK? Could I just order from the US and would it work the same? Would there be any compatibility issues?


Hope you can help me out
Thanks

I don't know when Surface Pro will come out in the UK, but like you I hope it won't be much longer. It sounds like you're not interested in the digital pen feature, so you can also consider the Acer Iconia W700 tablet with a Core i5 and 11.6" full HD display. In the US it's priced very competitively. There's also the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T, which is a bit more expensive but has a detachable keyboard. Both are reviewed on our site and you'll find them featured on our home page. They're a little bit larger than the Surface since they're 11.6", but not much larger.

Other than the power plug prongs, I don't expect you'd have compatibility issues if you imported one from the US, though you might have trouble with warranty service if needed.
