Don't buy Microsoft Surface gear: 25% will break after 2 years, says Consumer Reports

WTF?

Not been my experience

I usually go through laptops about every 18 months. The SP4 is a little past that now with no sign of quitting. Firmware updates come in pretty regularly and stability improved radically in the first few months. Barely a glitch worth mentioning these days.

In an interesting irony GF bought me a Targus MacBook Air case to keep it in!

Couldn't agree more

I switched from W7 in December, absolutely love it. Workspaces, 'nuff said.

Still have a W7 VM for officey stuff, rarely used, and have to dual boot to use my crappy Canon scanner.

It stays out of my way and lets me get on with stuff. Wish the window list used small, stacked icons though I can live with it.
