    "I actually purchased this directly from the Apple store, but I love it. I held off buying the 2015 version for a year because I was concerned about the size (12 inches almost seeming too small for a laptop), the new keyboard, a single port, and the capabilities of the Core M processor as opposed to an i5 that comes standard in the MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros. So, this is a review written by someone who's owned, multiple PC's, a 2015 13" MacBook Air, and a 2015 13" MacBook Pro."

    "Amazing device here. On the expensive side, but given the specs, it's more than worth it. Very comfortable to use, and the versatility has really been great for me in the office. Only downside is it gets a bit hot under heavy load, but otherwise perfect."

    "As a developer, I need a small but powerful computer to take with me. The Surface Pro has been a nearly perfect solution for me - the tablet is easy to show to clients and the 12.3 inch screen is both portable enough to carry but large enough to show off my work. The Microsoft pencil is also fantastic, enabling me to take notes on exact problem spots. My only complaint is that the keyboard that comes with it isn't quite a keyboard feel, but overall I'm very happy with this pc."

    "The Microsoft Surface Pro is a sleek bit of kit, there's no doubt about it. It's got great form, and it's a lot more powerful than you'd expect. It can handle some really resource intensive activities, which makes it really convenient to use considering how little space it requires. But as far as development goes, there are better options for the price. The Surface Pro may be really cool, but it's not the kind of machine you'd want to develop on."
