**Full Disclosure: As part of the Windows Champions blogger program, I will be loaned two devices (with Windows 8.1) for the next year. I will also have the opportunity to learn more about Windows and Microsoft. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
A 2-in-1 device – both computer and tablet. So portable and convenient. I’ve said it before, but I ADORE my Windows Surface 2 Tablet!
The Windows Surface 2 Tablet is such an easy touch screen device to use. I can have multiple apps running at once and swipe between screens to get to the one I need. I have taken it to two conferences so far, and it’s the BEST! I can take notes in OneNote, swipe over to Twitter, then to Facebook and back to OneNote again.
Having home screen access to OneDrive is phenomenal! I can access my photos and files with the touch of my screen. Not only that, though, I can add to my OneDrive and have that information on any other device (as long as I am logged into my account). I liked technology before, but the Windows Surface 2 tablet has pushed me into the love zone!
- I LOVE the size and weight of the Surface 2. It’s less than half an inch thick and weighs about a pound and a half.
- Set-up took about 10 minutes! (I just signed into my Windows account and it pulled in everything associated with that account.)
- The touch cover snaps on so easily.
- The kickstand is such a great feature on this tablet.
- The power supply is thin and lays nicely against the tablet so it’s not in your way while you use the device.
- The battery life is fantastic! I can get about 10 hours out of it (over the course of about 3 days) before I have to charge again.
- Windows 8.1! I was beyond nervous about 8.1 because I was still using Windows 7 on my main computer. I don’t think I could live without 8.1 now!
- Because it’s a Windows tablet, I am not able to install the Chrome browser or the ChromeCast app.
- The power supply is not ‘normal’ so if I forget the charger and the Surface dies, I am out of luck.
Ideas for Improvement:
- While I really like the kickstand, it is not adjustable which means the tablet isn’t always at the angle I’d like.
- I’d love to see a Swype keyboard option.
