Mine didnt. i think they were meant to be doing a office set for surface. You can get it so cheap you may as well get the full version and put it on there if you really need it. They aint cheap tablets but they do vastly more than android and ipad combined. they are like a power PC in a tablet. i use mine to run skecthup onsite and take down measurements as well as numerous other things like digital contracts, remote desktop, pricing, estimates etc etcLol. Does surface come with Microsoft office ?
lol your joking right. So because a "techie" AKA dumbass sales person uses an Ipad it makes it better than other tablets :blink:.Hmmm, Why would the techie folks the AT&T use iPads instead of other tablets?
I did hear building apps for non apple products were cheaper so...
That is the down side. The cost. they cost a lot but when you compare what it does with a Ipad as a comparison its cheap.I am saving up to get the Surface Pro.
The stylus on the thing makes it THE right sub-lap top in my book.
Thing is about $1k though.
This pad is as smart as the ole boy can handle. It's easy.lol your joking right. So because a "techie" AKA dumbass sales person uses an Ipad it makes it better than other tablets :blink:.
They use the Tablet to figure out who's next in line to be served. It may work great for that but professionals need it to do much more than figure out who's next in line. Another reason they prob use them is because they cost them 1/3rd what a proper tablet costs also.
Most prob would but when you need it to do more it cant. Most people are happy with the most basic of functions. What i like is anything i can do on my PC i can do on site with the Surface Pro. Its like having my PC with me. Cant say that about the ipad.I'd actually take the top one
If you use a PC then its easy to know how the Surface tablet works. It is just a power PC in a tablet. As an example i just come back from pricing a job. I was trying to show a customer a rendering i did but i was also trying to show him the specs for the materials. I just swiped from the left side to the center of the screen and i can run 2 applications at the same time. Its a feature i really like as im so used to running multiple screen setups as its much more productive than switching from application to application. I was able to sit there and edit a few bits on the spot which would be impossible with an ipad also. I also have 200GB+ of storage so basically all my Business side of my PC can go with me. The touch screen is also vastly superior to the Ipads.It's silly to suggest you can't do most anyway you might want on an iPad. Can I run sketchup or some other 3D design program? No. I can use pages for contracts or a few other apps and numbers for spreadsheets. If I'm bored I suppose I could set up a VN but I don't need to do a lot onsite. On any given day I use xactscope to scope a job, pages for contracts, invoice2go for invoices, numbers for spreadsheets, PayPal here for payments, outright to track spending, jotnot pro for scanning and PDF creation and of course my email. I don't really know what else I would need on site. I have a laptop in the truck if I need to do more.
Of course I would be lying if I said I ever spent a minute using the surface pro. Perhaps I just don't know what I'm missing.
