      your reviews are the most biased ive seen, you would literally bend over backwards for apple despite them conning people fortunes for repairs that were intentionally misidentified.

    USB connectivity, reliability, better support, better price point, better warranty, better overall compatibility with other devices AND software.
    You missed quite a few points about the Surface. None of the above is "niche", it's simply a better product because of the services and compatibility that using Microsoft products allows.

    With cell phones with Windows 10 64bit we also waited for new apps (UWP) .... untill Windows 10 continuation was told cancelled in December 2016. Real end in three stages December 2018, June 2019, January 2020. Right now there are even problems with SMS.
    (Instagram came in January 2018, was working until april 2018 for instance; now is removed from store as all other Facebook apps)
    People need a reason to buy this ARM 32bit tablet instead of classic pc tablet from microsoft. Or it will end simillarily like their old phones. With apple iPad in my work just everyone bought it as a new innovative thing, even nobody really knows how to use it outside of whatsup app.

    I was tempted to buy the surface x pro but I didn't like the arm chip in it. I couldn't get hold of the surface 7 pro so I went with the galaxy tab s6 and a desktop.

    As a teacher, i love my surface pro 4. Upgrading to a surface laptop 3 now just cos it worked out cheaper than buying the pro 7. But I think you are right. Depending how you'll use it makes a surface worth it or not. For average people using it as a tablet or laptop neither are really worth it, too expensive when you could get something cheaper that does the same thing. but for things like teaching its a godsend. Its light, easy to walk around the room with, good on battery, simple to use and has connection ports for projectors etc where most schools do not support apple products at all.

    After the defect on my Surface Pro 3 when the touch screen curved outward when its internal battery bulged I promised myself never to get another Mircosoft hardware product. I could bear the overheating but when the touched screen seams detached itself from the frame I could not believe why this is happening to such a premium product. Better to research on the issues rather than what it can do.

    Yeah but, regardless of whether or not it is as capable as the other surface devices, whether or not it is as what you would expect from a standard windows 10 laptop, it is the direct competitor to the Ipad Pro and it is far more capable, the simple fact you CAN run games on it, even if not at full optimisation, you certainly cant offer that on an Ipad. As a tablet device (which is what it is) it absolutely outshines its competitor.

    this would be the perfect laptop for me if it ran at 120hz and the arm processor would run 64 bit.

    Developers do not write Store apps even for regular Windows 10 and you want them to do it for ARM based? With the price no one will buy this almost-tabler-almost-laptop. Basically dead-on-arrival product among with others Microsoft released recently.

    Microsoft betrayed me with Windows phone first and .NET Core WCF after. Now I'm smart. I don't touch this product line unless it survives for 10 years at least.

    Honestly I realy like it. I like the design, connectivity is great with the option to plug SIM card for LTE and I see it like a best portable windows device. Actualy I want it. I am trying to start a IT career and I don't want to carry a heavy laptop when on holiday but still need to have something to code. If it possible to run Visual Studio it will be a great device (even coding on Visual Studio Code will be fine and I think it should run, not sure). All-in-all I think it's a great portable windows device.
