The Surface Pro series turned the corner on the age of stationary computing for Microsoft. The migration of all the hard components from keyboard area to screen bulkhead made for some interesting innovations in the keyboard and stylus accessories.
The Surface Pro 3 made a pretty good impression on us, but the newer, lighter, stronger and faster Surface Pro 4 had the whole room at Microsoft’s Windows 10 devices event wowed.
There’s also a newer, lighter, stronger and faster* Type Cover keyboard that includes a fingerprint sensor for Windows Hello. That cover [...]

Jaime posted an article yesterday pointing out a few reasons why he is no longer excited about the Microsoft Surface Pro. I’m a different type of person though, and I was very excited to hear that the Surface Pro would be available on February 9th. Sure it’s a couple weeks later than originally expected due to retailer refresh cycle scheduling, but I fully intend to line up to buy one that weekend.
The reason I consider myself different from most of the other tech journalists out there is that this isn’t my only job. I have other jobs that require other [...]

Judging from the reviews thus far, some of those who pre-ordered Microsoft's new Surface tablet might be feeling a bit of buyer's remorse. Read on to see why pre-ordering is seldom a good idea.
Take a look at our first impressions of the Microsoft Surface RT tablet as well as the Touch Cover and Type Cover accessories you can get for it.
I’ve been a Microsoft product user for exactly 20 years, ever since DOS 4.2 ruled the world and using a Mouse was optional. I still remember most of the DOS commands, and even though Windows 3.1 grew quick on me, there were just certain things that I could do better in the command prompt than in any other environment.
Throughout the years, I’ve been reluctant to leave Windows, even if I use a Mac. The only reason I accepted to buy my first Mac, was when I learned about how well Windows ran on it through Boot Camp. Back when I sort-of switched, it was the only way to [...]
It's that time of the quarter again. The sleeping-giant tablet market has been jostled awake, and slate news is ready to start pouring down the pipe. A few of us at Pocketnow have put our heads together, and decided on the top five must-have items for a successful Android tablet. Some of these will sound familiar, but the stakes are so high with Google's imminent relaunch that they bear reinforcement.
I’ll admit that it’s been a while since Microsoft gave us two back-to-back events where nothing that was announced disappointed. Microsoft’s announcement of their new Surface Tablet, and now their announcement of Windows Phone 8 have left many of us happy with the roadmap ahead. This week’s return of Windows Phone View goes through a summary of all the details that we liked out of these two products that will see the light of day by the end of the year. Sadly, both announcements coincidentally match in the only reason we’d ever give you bad news at the end [...]
There’s no arguing Microsoft’s success in the PC industry: its primary platform is so deeply embedded in personal computing that it’s been able to leverage some arguably monopolistic powers with regards to bundled applications. And just as Windows rules the desktop, Windows Mobile once ruled the smartphone, giving Redmond an enviable position — for a time — in the world of operating systems. Yet now Microsoft finds itself in a rather unenviable position on numerous fronts, with yesterday’s Surface launch representing yet another vertical wherein the [...]
Microsoft's announcement today has had one certain effect: it's disrupted the market. It's made the future uncertain for the other players. And it's introduced a new, compelling contender to freshen up the stagnant two-horse race. And if we truly are entering a "post-PC era," then Microsoft has literally everything to lose by getting the tablet game wrong. With those kind of stakes, the next year is going to be incredibly interesting to watch - and the new Surface line will be right in the heart of it all.
