Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Can`t turn it on After choosing restart option on Surface the device stays in sleep mood and it`s impossible to turn it back on. After visiting Microsoft website I discovered that is a common problem. I followed different instructions posted on the website to make my tablet work but still no luck. 08 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful This was a gift for my husband and I'm told this is far superior to the tablet I bought from JL last year! It is, apparently, quite 'a versatile and powerful piece of kit'. Sadly, not sufficiently versatile to do the dusting and hovering. He is very pleased with it and JL lived up to their promise and did a price match so I'm happy. 06 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great laptop / tablet Really glad I bought this, best fastest computer I've ever had. Got fed up with time consuming waits for my old lap top to start up and shut down. This Surface Pro computer comes on within 10 - 15 seconds from off, and instantly from sleep. Brilliant using office 2013 and sky drive. Also bought the key board / cover and use this as a laptop. The key board unclicks easily and you've got a tablet. Windows 8 is really easy and you can switch between desktop and metro depending on what you are doing. I actually look forward to using the computer again, would recommend this highly. Good quality build, feels and looks good. 22 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! The Surface Pro is just an ideal work tablet, been using it for a few months and haven't used my laptop since, runs ALL office programs and works seamlessly with our office security, servers and software 29 September 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent device, not quite five stars in my book I deliberated about buying the Surface pro for a few weeks. I finally bit the bullet and I am very glad that I did. Delivered promptly and reliably by John Lewis, thank you! It is an expensive bit of kit, but comparing it to tablets and laptops which pack a similar punch, the Surface Pro is well worth the money. I bought it with the "type cover", which again was pricey, but meant that I can use it as a laptop when I need to type a bit faster and see the whole screen at the same time - the best of both worlds. It really is quite fast for its size. It takes only seconds from the moment you power on to logging in. Its' Windows Experience ratings: Processor - 6.9, Memory - 5.9, Graphics - 5.6, Gaming Graphics - 6.4, Hard disk - 8.1. I have only installed and played Civ 5 as yet, and that plays brilliantly especially since it has been configured for Win 8 touch. I didn't buy it to replace my PC, but I am using my PC less now as there is so much I can accomplish on the Surface Pro. Besides, I cant use my PC on the train! Cons: I really really like my new Surface Pro, but there are a few niggles and that's why it didn't quite get 5 stars: - Pen calibration isn't precise enough for my liking, even after recalibrating. - Battery life isn't that bad but isn't great either. I get about four hours when using it quite heavily. - No where to attach the pen when charging: I can see myself misplacing the pen soon as a result, either that or my 17 month old will hide it somewhere. 09 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A fantastic piece of kit I purchased this item recently through I ordered at 6.58pm in the evening, and received an e-mail at 9.15am the following morning confirming it was ready for collection - excellent service! This is a marvellous piece of equipment and I'm at a loss to understand some of the negative reviews that I have seen elsewhere on the internet. It is well made, easy to operate, lightweight and works like a dream - a great alternative to a laptop. With Office 365 installed (available to purchase separately at John Lewis, it is quick and easy to share documents between the Surface Pro, a PC, laptop, and even a Windows 8 Phone. The keyboard purchased separately at John Lewis) is easy to connect and great to use. I can't recommend this highly enough. 27 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tablet or laptop: Its both! I was uncertain about buying a surface pro because I had read critical reviews. Don't be fooled by these, I honestly can't believe they were reviewing the same machine which I bought. The comparisons seem to be with an iPad... but the Surface Pro just blows it away, its so much more powerful. It will run all your older Windows applications (some of mine are positively ancient but work just fine). In addition it does anything a tablet will do, except faster. The battery life depends on use. I've been using it continuously now for six and a half hours surfing the web, word processing, installing software and apps and moving files about. I'm still at 30%. That's almost as good as my tablets. Using it on power hungry applications with a bright screen I get around five and a half hours. In summary, I think my other tablets will be redundant, as will my netbook and laptop. I have the type keyboard/cover and this is just great. I can type as fast as on a full keyboard and it feels fine. Its not a cheap option of course but I think Microsoft has got it right this time, and it seems like Windows 8 was just waiting for the Surface Pro to arrive. Well it was a long wait..but worth it! Recommended. 01 June 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by best thing i ever bought I always avoided tablets/ipads as it seemed no matter what I tried to do I would always end up having to walk to my desktop top to finish what ever I started on the pad. weather that was to watch a video clip, fill in a web form, or just to get a website to display correctly, it seemed pads/tablets just didn't do the job. this is a completely new beast and what a beast, a full powered desk top computer. I can do all the work I could on my desktop then carry this out to the garden and seamlessly stream 1080p mkv video to watch a movie, Netflix or TV, Connect to the hdmi input of your big TV and use that as a second screen, check emails and surf the web in bed whilst listening to my partner scream at their ipad after the 6th failed attempt at entering order details on a website. it is the BEST gadget I have ever had, works beautifully and does EVERYTHING I wanted and hoped it would and I find more uses for it everyday. this is the only computer I have now, I sold both my desktop and laptop as this replaces them both. Bad points.... battery life is around 4 hours but that's under heavy use, it fully recharges in under an hour so for 2 hours charge you get 8 hours, in comparison my partners ipad gives 9 hours but needs 8 hours to fully charge again. The only other thing I could point out is that it is slightly heavier than other tablets but not enough for it to be any problem I recommend this product to friends without hesitation, it simply never fails to impress and you won't regret your purchase 28 May 2013
