Microsoft Surface Pro Review (Windows Surface Review)
With Microsoft Surface Pro, Microsoft has developed a tablet device for mainstream use. It comes equipped with an Intel based processor and Windows 8, which means you get to use every imaginable application that works on a regular desktop computer. The Microsoft Surface Pro brings with it the promise of being both a productivity device and a consumption device. But does the it deliver on it’s promises? Let’s find out in this Microsoft Surface Pro review.
The Microsoft Surface Pro definitely has a lot going for it. But also may have some show stoppers. Let us examine the pros and cons of the Microsoft Surface Pro:
Here are some of the benefits and advantages of the Microsoft Surface Pro tablet:
- Powered by Windows 8 Pro (x64) – Having Microsoft Windows 8 Pro on the go has many advantages. You have every application you would otherwise have on your personal computer. Apps such as full version of Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop are at your fingertips, offering you the same office or home experience on the go.
- Intel Inside – With a core i5 processor, you not only get performance but also support for all legacy desktop applications. With Surface RT, the ARM processor came into heavy fire because of the lack of support for traditional Windows applications. This feature alone makes the Windows Surface Pro the winner over Surface RT.
- USB Ports on a Tablet! – Having a USB 3.0 port on a tablet is a blessing. It allows you to plug a variety of peripherals and accessories into your tablet. There are very few tablets out there that have an actual USB Port.
- Full HD Display – Microsoft Surface Pro comes with a glorious full HD, 1080p resolution display. This permits vivid imagery, beautiful and sharp colors, and excellent video playback.
- Exceptional Build Quality – Microsoft Surface Pro has an excellent build quality overall, something you would expect from an ultrabook/tablet device these days.
- Great Design – The ability to turn the Windows Surface Pro into a laptop by attaching a keyboard and utilizing its inbuilt kickstand has many benefits. You can use it in the office or college as a regular laptop and turn it into a tablet once you are on the go. Moreover, Microsoft has cleverly designed the keyboard right into the cover of the tablet, which means you won’t have to carry it separately.
- High Performance – Needless to say, Microsoft Surface Pro comes with the all powerful Intel Core i5. With this processor, you can multitask, run heavy applications and enjoy casual games.
- Mini HDMI Port – Feel like extending your desktop to another screen? With the Microsoft Surface Pro’s dedicated Mini HDMI Port, you can extend your desktop to a bigger screen and enjoy more work space or simply view movies or series through your HD TV.
- Pressure Sensitive Stylus – Microsoft Surface Pro ships with a handy pressure sensitive stylus from Wacom. This is a high quality stylus with an eraser on the back. It is excellent to use while taking notes or working with Adobe Photoshop.
Here are some of the advantages and drawbacks of the Microsoft Surface Pro tablet:
- Limited Storage – Unfortunately, the biggest shortcoming of this Windows 8 tablet is its limited storage. The OS itself takes away at least 45 GB of your SSD storage. This is seemingly quite expensive for the 64GB version. For this very reason it is recommended that you should try getting your hands on the 128GB variant of the tablet, otherwise you may quickly run out of storage.
- Short Battery Life – Another drawback of the Microsoft Surface is its battery life. Microsoft promised to offer extended battery life on its new Windows 8 powered tablets. Unfortunately, with Microsoft Surface Pro, it seems the company did not live up to the promise made. With average usage, the tablet/laptop hybrid can max out at 4-5 hours, which can be a problem for some.
- Heavy and Thick for a Tablet – Weighing at almost 2lbs, it is quite a bit heavy for a tablet PC. But there are certain advantages of this too. For example, when on its kickstand, using its weight the Windows tablet can easily balance itself. But be prepared to tire your hands if you use it as a tablet.
- Awkward Laptop Mode – The kickstand serves its purposes well when you are using the tablet as a laptop with its keyboard attached. However, if you ever try using it in its laptop form on a couch or in bed, you will have to fight a constant battle to balance the device on your lap.
- No Discrete GPU – Microsoft Surface Pro comes with an Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics chip. It is powerful enough to give you beautiful and vivid imagery with excellent full HD video playback. However, if you have a hidden gamer in you, you might be slightly disappointed. The device can run some recent games but with almost all advanced settings turned off.
- Few Touch Friendly Apps – While Windows 8 compatibility gives the Surface Pro Tablet a big advantage over tablets from other platforms, you will find that many popular, touch oriented tablet apps have yet to become available for Windows 8 Tablets. While we expect this will change in the future, this is definitely a point to consider if you are buying a tablet today.
Still haven’t decided if the Microsoft Surface Pro is the right thing for you? Can’t decide simply by looking at its pro and cons? Let’s see what the critics have to say about this device.
David Pierce of The Verge didn’t exactly like the fact that he couldn’t use the laptop form in a comfortable position; for example, while sitting on the couch. He calls this a ‘dealbreaker’ for him.
‘’Actually, that’s what frustrates me about the Surface Pro. It’s definitely not a tablet, but it’s also not a “laptop,” strictly speaking — I never figured out how to actually use the thing on my lap, with a keyboard attached and the kickstand out. I like kickstands on tablets, and this one is plenty sturdy and clicks in and out with a satisfying firmness. It only goes out at one angle, though, which is too upright unless you’re sitting at a desk with the Surface directly in front of you. But the real dealbreaker for me was that it’s just unusable in my most common position — sitting on my couch, feet on the coffee table, with the computer on my lap. I’d spend forever getting the device balanced, only to have it tip over as soon as I touched the screen or tapped on the Type Cover. I don’t know if a more flexible kickstand would solve the problem or not, but as it is you’re pretty limited in the ways you can use the Surface Pro’’.
Jason Evangelho of Forbes was surprised by Surface Pro’s video gaming capabilities. He tested games like ‘Diablo III’, ‘Portal 2,’ ‘Civilization V’ and XCOM, and was quite happy with the performance.
‘’The Surface Pro is a prime example of synergy between well-chosen components. Intel’s Core i5, HD Graphics 4000, 4GB of RAM and the snappy SSD cooperate to deliver surprising AAA gaming performance – yet another reason this machine sits firmly in the realm of ultrabook and not tablet. My testing in this category included one constant: running the games at the Pro’s native 1920×1080 resolution. Portal 2 and Diablo III impressed, both outputting at least 25fps on near-maximum graphics settings (shadows and Antialiasing were bumped down slightly). The same for Civilization V and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.’’
He also pointed out that Call of Duty Fans should be aware that Microsoft Surface Pro can struggle to run their favorite game.
Mary Branscombe of TechRadar compliments the performance of Surface Pro. She assures the tablet/laptop hybrid is capable of running most conventional apps.
‘’When running Photoshop and applying complex filters, editing 15GB raw images in Lightroom, rendering HD videos in Premiere Pro, watching 450 fish swimming at 60fps in the FishIE benchmark, the Core i5-3317U in the Surface Pro shows its speed and power. You’ll have no problem transcoding audio and video, running Visual Studio or using modelling and CAD software. If you’ve used one of the very latest Core i5 processors, you know what sort of performance to expect from the Surface Pro. If you’ve used one of last year’s Core i5 notebooks, the Surface Pro is definitely faster’’.
Scott Lowe of IGN calls the Microsoft Surface Pro a ‘costly endeavor’. He believes there is still a huge room for improvement in the PC/tablet hybrid category.
‘’There’s a future in PC/tablet hybrids and with Windows 8 and the Surface series, Microsoft is making significant headway. But there’s still significant barriers when it comes to portability, energy efficiency, and cost. At $899 for the 64GB variant and $999 for the 128GB model (of which, only offers 29GB and 89GB of available storage), the Surface Pro is a costly endeavor. And until processing and battery technology get to the point where thinner, lighter, and more energy-efficient products can emerge, the category will be limited to all-in-one portables that struggle to match the utility and efficacy of their tablet and notebook equivalents’’.
Should you buy the Microsoft Surface Pro?
Microsoft Surface Pro is a pretty good Windows 8 Tablet PC overall. It has the full capabilities of a desktop PC and the portability of a tablet. If you are a professional or student always on the go, you get the ability to use your entire desktop setup in the palm of your hands. The ability to run potentially millions of desktop apps, including your per-existing corporate apps, school apps, etc. give the Windows Surface a distinct advantage over tablets on other platforms.
While the Microsoft Surface Pro offers a lot of potential benefits, for some people, its potential is less important than its actual accessibility and overall design. The Surface Pro suffers mostly due to its form factor, especially if you are the kind of a person who often works from the couch or any other awkwardly comfortable positions. It is not only uncomfortable to use on your lap, but also runs out of power if you are not constantly charging it. Storage is also a key drawback with Microsoft Surface Pro. With the operating system taking almost two thirds of the available storage space, you have no choice but to spend an additional $100 and get the 128GB variant. With its high price and short battery life, the Microsoft Surface Pro will be a tough choice for anyone not a corporate user, professional, or tech geek with money to burn.
Ultimately, we feel that Windows 8 Tablets are the way of the future. It will just take time for the price and the performance to reach a level where mainstream consumers are interested in buying the device. Unit that happens, Windows 8 Tablets will struggle to gain mind share, let alone market share. Perhaps the Windows Surface Pro II will provide a practical alternative to the iPad and Google Android Tablets.
Tips to get more out of Android as a platform desktop
If you are also considering to start to use an Android device as if it were a PC, you must surely be wondering what are the things you need to grab to take full advantage of this capability are. Here are some tips.
Android has become a very mature platform, and every day we see new applications will be found. The flexibility of the operating system Google has led the manufacturers to get into almost anything, and some manufacturers are beginning to see the future and as a platform for desktop computers affordable.
The truth is that using Android as a desktop platform is not such a crazy idea if we start from the fact that Google already believe that for the average user that is needed to enjoy a PC is a good browser . In addition, between nourished catalog of Google OS applications, but not too many, it can be said that there is an adequate amount to move well enough with keyboard and mouse on a big screen.
Here are some steps to follow to get the most out of Android as if it were a desktop platform.
The first, of course, is the Hardware. Although you can buy Android computers already come with everything you need, if you are starting from a gadget you already have in your house, you might want to know what are the peripherals and accessories you need to use that smartphone, tablet or stick Android as a PC .
- Connect to Monitor: Obviously if we use our gadgets more Android PC desktop style the first thing to do is connect to a monitor. Already in the last part of this article I explained you need to know to be able to connect your smartphone or tablet to your TV or monitor with HDMI, which will be much easier if you use a stick Android.
- Mouse: Select the correct use depends on the type of mouse we have Android gadget. If this is a stick, which most of the time do not have Bluetooth but USB, then you’d better choose a USB mouse.The opposite happens with phones and tablets, as a general rule use the same port for video output and USB OTG, so we need to connect the monitor to deprive us of the USB functionality, and therefore the best choice will be a Bluetooth mouse.
- Keyboard: Here we apply the same rule as with the mouse to decide whether to use USB or Bluetooth connectivity. It should be noted that some keyboards have a mouse pad, which will save us some dollars compacting all in one device. You should also look out for when buying you are purchasing a full size keyboard and not a reduced, more useful dimensions if we want to use a stick to give Android smart functions on our TV.
- None If you have an Android stick, or any other gadget with the operating system of the big G have separate output USB port input video then you should use a USB hub to get more ports available.
- Dock: Many smartphones and tablets have accessories that can be purchased separately and give a complete set of ports and media outlets, as in the case of the Motorola Atrix. Special mention deserves the Galaxy, especially the S3, S4, Note 2 and Note 3 for Samsung range there docks official and unofficial that let you use USB and HDMI ports at the same time.
As for the software, we also know of some applications that will be essential in your journey within the operating system of Google. Then we left that we consider vital, and you will be on your part to discover some others depending on your needs .
- Qickly: This is an interesting application that allows you to use widgets in floating windows. Particularly useful for those who are very used to this functionality in most desktop operating systems. It costs 1.49 dollars in the Google Play Store .
- Tiny Apps: Another set of useful tools that work by way of floating around. It has applications such as calculator, notes, drawing, even a music player. A version of payment and Lite , both downloadable from the Play Store.
- Dolphin Browser: Although almost all Android browsers already have the practical function of windows, most shows on their websites for mobile version, which is not always the best, as in the present case. Dolphin Browser is the option to select Desktop and client use, so any web show us as if we saw it from a PC.
- None Unfortunately still nothing for Android that features the complexity of LibreOffice or Microsoft Office, Kingsoft Office but they are pretty close. It is a fairly complete office suite, with which you surely will be very comfortable for the most basic functions, and best of all is that is free .
- Plume: Plume is a Twitter client with a career already in the Google store. Besides being free and extremely well run, has an interface that will fit very well if you want to use on large screens. It is free in the Google store.
Tips to build a PC as a rookie
- Make sure all the components chosen are compatible.
- Buy the components that best suit the purpose of the computer.
- You should not always choose the most expensive for optimal performance.
- Make sure you have proper care while you assemble the team.
It is not at all a secret that build a PC from parts usually much cheaper to buy everything ready. However, this of your own PC hop usually unknown territory for the vast majority of people, even if they are increasingly the brave who dare to take risks with the goal of saving some money and gain more performance change .
If you have decided you are creating your first piece of computer art, but there are still things that are not clear, then you surely will interest these tips we have prepared for rookie Armando computers.
Select the components to be used, besides being the first step is perhaps the most fundamental and important, because according to that we use, your computer will be more or less potent and have more or less high costs. Therefore, choosing which pieces will never use an easy task, and this is where you should take more calm to choose the best possible way
- Processor: Choose processor is relatively simple, since there are only two large houses on the market. The choice of one or the other may be to simple personal preference Intel or AMD . However, depending on what you want there is a general rule quite useful. If you want high performance and affordable prices, then buy an AMD, which gives you everything you need to take advantage of any game. However, if yours is excessive performance regardless of the price , or conversely you want something very cheap for the most basic jobs and do not care about games or design tasks, the processor you are looking for an Intel.
- Motherboard / Mainboard: When choosing the motherboard (or “motherboard” in Spain), the best brands are ultimately Asus, Gigabyte, and XFX , but if you want something more basic can chooseAsrock or Foxconn . However, the most important thing to consider, in addition to allowing you to use the type of RAM and video card you plan to use, is that the socket is compatible with the CPU . For Intel, the sockets are currently using 775, 1155, 1156, 1366, and 2011. If you’ve opted for AMD, usually work with AM2, AM2 +, AM3, AM3 + and FM1. You must be aware of that each processor has a specific type of socket.
- RAM: As for the RAM , check our advice is that you buy the most modern format DDR3 modules, and make sure the motherboard of choice is compatible with the technology (remember DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 are not compatible other). Between 2GB and 3GB of RAM will be more than enough if you want a basic computer, but if you want something to play, then be sure that a minimum of 8Gb will save you headaches for a while . Regarding brands, basically all companies with some fame in the world of technology will make your job well.
- Video Card: If you are not planning to work too heavy submit your new computer, then you can ignore this component relax. If, however, your new PC will be used to play or work, then NVIDIA and AMD have a large catalog that sure I’ll like it. The two brands have very heavy artillery and done an outstanding job, but here AMD tends to have a better balance between performance and price.Remember, unless you have more money than you can spend, you need not squander $ 1000 on a card, as the mid-range market with everything you can the great houses of games presented in the next two years.
Once ye have come all the components for the assembly, it is best that you consider some details that could be very important and will save you having a hard time looking at what Google has been what went wrong.
- Plan before you build: Whether you’ve never assembled a computer room, as if you already have some experience doing it, you must remember that each PC can be a different world, so the first thing you should do is always to have a good plan what you do, and stick to it. In this way you can avoid skipping things and significantly reduce your chances of things not work at boot.
- Try as you build: Once you have added all the hardware components basic to the motherboard (RAM, CPU, Video Card), you connect to the power source and a monitor on and verify that everything is working, and avoid having that attachment and detachment especially if nothing happens at first.
- Be careful when applying the thermal paste: one of the most common problems when arming a computer is the wrong applied thermal grease, leading to subsequent “unexplained” problems. So you should always be careful to do the right way, that is by applying small amount in the center, crank up the heat sink and screw, which evenly distribute the paste.
- Watch airflow: We all know that the more fans we add to our computer, better able to handle the excess heat. However, most tend to position all the fans to draw the air, which is not always the best option. The fact is that sometimes should balance the input and output, to avoid a negative balance within the team, leading to a worse heat dissipation.
And that’s about all you can say for now. As final advice, you should take full account of this ride you can have your own equipment its collateral problems, for example, if a component goes you have to disassemble damaged personally and claim warranty. Generally to make use of these guarantees you require in addition to invoices and other, box and package in the coming decomposed component , so it is best to keep it all.
On the other hand, once took stock and preparing the operating system installation, you will have made sure that you have noticed a pile of discs Software. As a personal advice, going all the material and download directly on the Internet , from the website of the manufacturer, the drivers you need, you’ll save time and be less complicated.

3 Key Areas to Focus on When Cleaning Up Your Data
Companies depend upon high-quality data in order to boost their marketing campaigns, company image and profitability. However, all too often the quality of their data is far too low. Effective data management is therefore a key process in allowing companies to make the most of their data, and there are various ways that they can go about this. Here are three key tips for better data management.
Having the correct names on customer records is incredibly important, but many companies often do not pay enough attention to ensuring that they have the correct names in place. Not only should they have the correct names for their contacts, but they should also ensure that the names are split up into separate components such as forename, surname and title.
Getting the name wrong on correspondence affects the usability and the responsiveness of the data. It makes customers feel alienated when they see their name spelt wrong, or receive information with the wrong name completely or no name at all. Making sure that all of the names are correct is a key part of effective data management, and this is also true for gender. Getting the gender of the contact wrong can really hurt your company image.
By making simple corrections to the names and genders of customers in the company database, you could significantly improve your response rates when you send out marketing materials. You could be wasting large sums of money trying to increase response rates in other ways when responses will remain low because you have failed to ensure that the names of the contacts are correct.
If your data contains the wrong addresses for your contacts, this can mean that your marketing communications don’t even reach your targets. You may have contacts in your system with both national and international addresses, and international addresses can be particularly problematic as often information can be forced into data formats that are not appropriate.
By making sure you have the correct addresses and that they are all in the correct format, you can greatly reduce the amount of money wasted on sending marketing communications that never reach their intended targets.
Most databases contain duplicates, and these should be eradicated from your system to improve the quality of your data. This can be a very difficult process for complex data and can take a lot of time and resources. However, there are companies that specialise in such data cleansing using tools that make the process a lot quicker and more effective, so you may want to consider hiring one.
These are a few ways in that you can start to practice better data management, no matter how large or complex your data records. However, often it is not possible to carry out large data management processes yourself, and you may therefore need to contact a data management and data marketing specialist who will use a range of tools to improve the accuracy of your data.
Improving your data and managing your records carefully can have enormous benefits for your company, so if you have not cleaned up your data in a while, make this a priority.
