Pros:
• USB-C, Finally! As a past Surface Pro user, this was never a feature. With a USB-C, like any computer, you can do so much more with this device now. From headphones to connecting external 4k monitors, to charging this and other devices (USB-C chargers are 10x cheaper to get), to even connecting an Ethernet adaptor. About time Microsoft.
• It’s a very sold machine. I go no flex issues, the frame feels sturdy, and overall I felt that I can throw this in a bag and not worry.
• It’s light. Not IPad light, but enough that you won’t feel worried that you’re not going to bend it.
• The microphone set up on the Pro is a big upgrade. Skype calls from my parents came crisp and clear in an indoor, TV on, volume. The web video is what it is, but the microphone setup is a thumbs up.
• Cortana listens to you pretty well. I’m learning Spanish so translating even simple questions, from English to Spanish, Cortana does a lot better than either using Alexa or Google Assistant. Also questions about directions, weather, and others were spot on.
• Excellent display. The screen is bright, outstanding saturation/color balance, and also offers ambient light sensing when it gets dark. When you go to settings you can modify it for a specific time, or it will automatically adjust when the sun goes down in your location.
• Microsoft mastered the kickstand on this. Numerous ranges of all angels, and is even quite steady when it’s placed on my lap.
• microSD reader (for upgraded memory option)
• Headphone Jack. I find this feature a must if you’re planning to edit videos on this.
• Solid State Drive (SDD) on a tablet size is one of the best things. If you have to choose, always an SSD, regardless of memory size. Faster, cooler, and
• Charging on this is very fast. From 0 to 50% it took around 45-50 minutes. Note that I was using the charging cords that it came with. Don’t expect the same results when using an off-brand.
• A lot of horsepower for a tablet. Inside is an Ice Lake processor. To summarize, it features smaller transistors that makes multi-tasking an non-issue. Trying out for the first time with around 10 apps running (Madden, Netflix, Live Maps, Grand Trims Mo, etc.), the machine had no lag or hiccups. Largely the effects of this chip will be appreciated in the next 2 years from when you get this tablet.
• The processor allows Wi-Fi 6 to be enforced on this tablet. This area is still new but within the next year, this tablet will already be up to date with the hardware. Meaning stronger upload and download rates.
• The speakers shoot sound directly to my face. Turning on Spotify, I got a decent quality in sound. With rock and country, I got a very balanced, and a lot of power in the volume. For the average listener it’s quite good. Not IPad level but still good to make the list.
• I can see the 3:2 screen a benefit for those who want to read, show notes, and display documents at work. Not many tablets can provide this without losing some quality. For me, I saw no waste in this Surface.

Cons and Oks:
• The chunky bezel. Stick to the times Microsoft, this can’t be ignored in 2019. It’s very thick and with competitors providing bezel-less frames, or close to it, this is a major turn off (Not to mention that Microsoft itself has a Surface Pro X with a design that is significantly less in the bezel. (Why not this one?).
• With the bezel issue, the screen size makes the tablet look 2 years older than what it is.
• Last year's model and this one are 99% the same in design. Remove the USB-C connector and it’ll be 100% the same. A very outdated design as I think Microsoft invested all their money on the internals and just forgot about the redesigning.
• The battery life isn’t great. I’m getting around 8 hours of power. That’s having Wi-Fi always on, web surfing, daily YouTube playing, and a couple of hours with Netflix (plus a couple of smaller apps). It can last a whole day if you control your power and your screen display, but it’s nowhere near what Microsoft is saying.
• Don’t take it outside on a sunny day. That sun glare is too powerful for this display brightness.
• Keyboard and Surface Pen are sold separately. I didn’t test these as you only get the tablet.
• Even though USB-C is a great thing to have, we’re already in the USB 3.1 world. With also no Thunderbolt 3 (quick file transfer) I wish that Microsoft put more effort into the outside design as much as they put in there hardware on this machine.
• I found no issue playing Overwatch on this but trying to play Call of Duty forget it. This isn’t for deep gaming and playing Overwatch killed a decent chunk of the battery.

Bottom Line:

If you’re going to buy this, you need to at least invest in there keyboard cover. It’s disappointing that to fully experience your Pro, you need to put down money on its keyboard and pen. Without a keyboard, from my experience, you’re pretty limited. I used a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, but the portably is limited if you can’t attach them to the Surface Pro.

Also we're in the age of laptops, tablets, and phones trying to reach the goal to be bezel-less. I have the previous model on hand and I can’t tell them apart in any way. Thanks to these 2019 new laptops/tablets, the bezels on this device make it feel like this tablet is from 2017. I’m also irritated that Microsoft didn’t at least try to improve the design.

But if you can deal with the design (and the battery) issues, you’ll know that Microsoft put all their money on what’s inside the system. From the new core processors, this tablet is a beast. I found it very fast, reliable, and it will stand its ground for 2+ years. For me that’s the beauty of a Surface Pro: a PC in the size of a tablet. I’m always a PC fan and this performs as if I had a laptop on my lap, something an IPad can’t do. If you can deal with the generic bezel look, and put money down for their keyboard, you’re getting a beast of a computer fitting in a tablet.

Overall: An outdated design that packs a lot of power for those who want more than just a generic tablet on the go.

Hope I was a help to you.

I've always wanted this for note taking at school. I'm glad I finally got it. The one I got came with a black type cover included. I think this was the possible Black Friday bundle.

I bought this as a secondary windows portable, primarily for use in routine tasks when I did not want to be tied to my desk. I use it like a laptop, so there may have been less expensive, more traditional options that would have done the job, but I have been curious about Windows tablets, so when this came up for sale with the cover included, I jumped on it. The utility of this machine, as with any computer, is going to depend on the tasks you want to perform with it. Since I mostly use it for document editing, I can't imagine using it in tablet mode would be a very good experience. The Type Cover is always attached.

It actually doesn't work so well sitting on a lap. On my short-legged, overweight frame, the stand is not sufficient to keep the tablet from falling off. I have not used it in tablet mode, but i notice that it gets rather warm. Leaving the cover on and folding it to the back should provide enough insulation. Feeling the keys press as you hold it is a little disconcerting, but the system knows to ignore that when the keyboard is at the back.

As with any compact keyboard, the Type Cover makes some compromises to save space. I would have happily given up some real estate on the spacebar, cursor keys, and left Ctrl key to get at least another Ctrl key on the right. As a visually impaired user, I also wish there was another way to tell whether the function keys are going to be function keys or perform their alternate functions when pressed besides a light under the Fn key. It seems the function toggles even when the Fn key is being used in conjunction with other keys. For example, when editing, one can use the Fn pluss arrow keys to access Home, End, Pgup and Pgdn keys. This is handy, but also seems to toggle the function key row.

Performance is good, at least for daily tasks. I have not done anything to tax the machine, but I do not notice a significant difference between the Surface and my more powerful desktop PC with routine activities. The facial recognition feature for login works great, even with my inability to look at the camera. I don't know what that means regarding the system's ability to be fooled, but that doesn't concern me at the moment.

I've had the Surface just a few weeks, but it is serving it's purpose well, even though I do have to use it on a TV tray. A traditional laptop might have served me better, but I am not unhappy with my purchase. It's compact, looks neat, and performs well. If you live in a Windows world and want a tablet, this is a good choice. In my view, the Type Cover inclusion is a must.

This is my upgrade from surface pro 3. It is and upgrade by any measure.

so far I am really liking this Surface. I got exactly what was ordered, new and sealed in the box. It was easy to set up and so far seems pretty snappy, the screen is great and I love the type cover. Battery life seems good, maybe not exactly as long as they claim. If I had to complain about one thing, it's the useless face recognition which has not worked even one time. I hope to figure out how to disable it because it really does not work at all. Overall, I am really happy with the tablet.

There are a few annoyances with this product those being lack of thunderbolt 3, limited screen real estate coupled with big bezels and the biggest gripe of all being poor battery life compared to the competition (Hp, Dell and Lenovo).
Now if you use the Sp7 indoors with the brightness set to around 50% then you can get at least 7.5-8 hours of battery which is average but not great, but if you use this outdoors or in a brightly lit area then you're forced to up the brightness which will kill the battery in around 4.5-5 hours. I found myself reaching for the charger 2-3 times in the day.
Other than that the product is great (so far). if you're a student or a person who frequently views pdfs and word documents then the form factor is perfect. The sp7 is also part of intel project Athena making it quick and easy to log in and get work started for the day.
Overall it's a good product but if you're someone who's not going to benefit from using this as a tablet regularly, you're better off getting another laptop.
I will update this review if I find any other issues.

PS. if you're an artist or some kind of digital illustrator, get an iPad pro over this product. There are several reviews online that complain about the line inaccuracy of the surface pen.

Three weeks in with a trip in there and it has been perfect.
I wasn't sure I would like the size because my last laptop was a 17" Toshiba and I really liked it but the size is not an issue at all and I truly appreciate the lighter weight of it.
I got the hub and pointer and a disk drive and they all work perfectly and such a smart design.
As a PS4 player I am almost tempted to get an XBox which would have been blasphemy a mere 4 weeks ago.
Well done Microsoft, well done. 🥇
It is so well done my husband intends on getting one on a couple months.

Great product. I look forward to loading my sheet music as pdf files and using the screen while I play the piano.

Love the surface pro. I used a 6 for work, so we decided on this one after reading lots of tech reviews. Product order came new. We did have to purchase Microsoft Office, but at least got a 39 day trial to begin. Minimal bloatware and easy to setup.

Very versatile. Light weight.
