My little Surface Pro 128 is a full friggin' desktop PC all in a little tablet. When I open it up on flights I know that the heads of other passengers will start leaning toward me and then...the questions begin. Oh yeah! MS Word. MS Excel, Powerpoint, Apps, Touch Screen, Blue Tooth Wedge Mouse and a Stylus. Bing. Internet Explorer. No tracking. Where was this thing all these years? Never mind, it's here now and Microsoft has changed the tablet forever. My co-workers want it. My family members want one. I like when the underdog comes up winning. Oh, I yes, I am sooooo long on Microsoft. They are back!!!!
You don't "need to use the stylus. It's very cool OPTION that enhances your experience.
1. You can use the amazing touch screen.
2. You can use the blue tooth cool wedge mouse.
3. You can use the stylus.
4. You can use all simultaneously or separately.
It's the best tablet on the market. Hands down. I own and android tablet (mistake) and I own an iPad which I loved until I bought the Surface Pro 128. Nothing is in its league.
