Long battery life
Good quality screen
Claimed 9-hour battery life has not been observed
There is still some way to go to catch Macbook Air, but I am happy Microsoft is reviving with this little competitive product. Overall I like it and want to keep it along with my Macbook Air. But there are a few ideas that I would like to share with Microsoft to make it better. First, the battery life is substandard. It is claimed to have 9 hours, but it typically last 5-6 hours for daily use. I think it can do better by utilizing unused spaces such as kickstand or keyboard to add additional power. They should also consider solar energy to supplement. Second, the keyboard should use bluetooth and in a detached state all the time except that it acts as cover when not in use. I personally want to use it as a tablet with an external keyboard (like iPad Pro), not the ability to switch back and forth. As a laptop, this cannot compete with Macbook as it is now and probably not in the future given its size restriction.

Surface Pro 3 OK
I'm surprised at how quickly the battery drains. Other than that, it is a great tablet. Keyboard is excellent. Bought this used surface 3 on ebay. In excellent condition and am slowly getting used to the windows tablet interface after years of Android tablet. The integration with my laptop is great and the direct connect to onenote via the pen is fantastic. I still feel the need to get to my Android apps.. There is an ease of use with Android that is not quite the same in windows. Microsoft and Google continue to make the integration with things like an app for google maps very difficult. Gmail is pretty easy to integrate into outlook. They need to get over it and connect.

A few unexpected inconveniences
Somehow in all of my researching before I made the purchase, I didn't notice that surfaces only have ONE USB port. It's not a huge deal at all but if I want a mouse plugged in, I have to disconnect it if I want to print, then reconnect it when I'm done. A small inconvenience. Beyond that, installing any Linux distro is a bit of a pain. The UEFI setup on this is very plain and lacks a lot of options and info. If you install Linux, odds are that your distro of choice will not recognize the surface keyboard trackpad (unless it works for newer models of the keyboard). So far the only one I know works is Ubuntu. There is a package that you have to install for it to recognize the trackpad. The little binged flap takes getting used to. You can't really use it on your lap (at least not comfortably). Enough of the bad! It is a very fast Computer due to the SSD and CPU. It's got plenty of guts to do what I need a computer to do. I love using it for note taking. For those who care about display, it has a beautiful display. High resolution and high ppi.

Great Tablet with a horrible camera
Anytime you can use a full operating system on a tablet, you have a great product. Add the keyboard and it's an excellent product. The screen is not just good, but amazing. That's the good. The ugly is the camera and the battery life. You'll get five to six hours TOP with normal use at work or at home. Understand I'm comparing the battery life to Apple products which, plain and simple, have unbelievable battery life. The camera, however; is another subject. It is the worst camera on a tablet I have every seen, and cameras on tablet are normally pretty awful. Why would you care about a camera on a tablet anyway? Well, because of the amazing Microsoft Onenote application. If you don't know this built in application on Windows, get to know it because it's amazing to use on a Surface. And one of the great features it has is the ability to take a picture (of a document), bring it into the application automatically, and then mark it up using the stylus. Sounds great right? Not with a Surface Pro 3. The camera is so bad that you can't even take a picture of a document sitting on the table right in front of you which, in turn renders this great feature unusable. Apparently, the Surface 3 and Surface Pro 4 don't have this problem. Yes, I said Surface 3. All that said, I use it at work every day and I love it... except the camera... and the battery.

Better than any laptop, works as both a laptop or a tablet!
Honestly one of the best purchase I've made. I've tried many different laptops trying to find the perfect one: not too heavy, good keyboard, not too slow, good to use in bed, good quality screen, etc. The surface is the one I will keep and will probably have for the next couple years. I've had Acer laptops, Asus, Sony, HP, Lenovo, and Dell. I'm going to specifically talk about the Acer S7 and the Lenovo X250. The S7 was almost perfect except the keyboard was pretty poor. There were no key travel and it was pretty hard to type for work or school if you predominantly use it for that. The S7 was also hard to use in bed as it was not able to become a 'tablet' or just a screen, the keyboard was always there. I switched to the Lenovo X250 because Lenovo was known to have the best laptop keyboards. I loved their keyboard and how well it was built for work and business. However, the laptop was pretty heavy for a 12.5 inch laptop so using it in bed and moving it around for reading or movies got a bit inconvenient. The air vents were also on the bottom so I cannot leave the laptop on my bed or it'll suffocate. When I use it on my lap it gets pretty hot and loud. I decided to switch that out for a Surface Pro 3. I love the Pro 3 because it has similar specs as all the other laptop (Intel Core i5/i7, SSD, and high quality touchscreen) but it's much lighter and portable. The keyboard is detachable when I don't need to use it for movies or reading in bed. It's roughly 2lbs which was 2-4lbs lighter than all the other laptops. The keyboard was not as good as the Lenovo but it was miles ahead of the S7 and plenty good enough for me to work on. The keyboard was much better than I thought it was. The vents are on the top so I does not get hot on my lap. I can use it on my bed and it will not suffocate. The only real complaint I have is that it does not have a memory card reader.
