  10. 10. To buy or not to buy? ● Apple & Samsung still have the tablet market cornered with plenty of cheaper plain label options also available ● Other combination tablet/computers are out there ● The Surface Pro does have limited battery life compared with tablets ● The core i5 processor can run hot under load – like playing games ● The rear camera is sub-standard with poor ambient lighting but good for outdoor daylight shots ● It is a touch heavier than some machines BUT ● The keyboard is a masterpiece, it's a fantastically constructed machine, native apps work like a dream and it is really a very impressive tool for work, study or playing.
  11. 11. WH&S ● Be aware of correct posture & positioning of hands when using a tablet or keyboard for extended periods of time – this will avoid repetitive strains on muscles and joints ● If you do intend using the device for extended periods remember to take a break and turn the brightness setting to a level that's easier on the eyes according to the ambient lighting. ● Keep device away from liquids, avoid exposure to direct heat. ● Don't drop the device, or transport it without protective case.
