I personally think it’s a fantastic time to pick up a Surface Pro. While it isn’t powered by the latest Intel Core “Haswell” chips, this is outstanding value for those looking for a productive tablet or a notebook replacement. The Surface Pro is one of my favourite tablets by far, and the click mechanism with the Type/Touch Covers is still unmatched.
