My Microsoft Surface Pro Story

June 15, 2013 Leave a comment


When the Surface Team posted this article, it came across my mind to post out my experience on using MS Surface Pro for the pass month. I’ve been dreaming for years that MS will produce or innovate a tablet PC which easier for me to carry around I like Surface.

Travel with Gadgets:

2013-06-15T17-00-46_0I frequently travel around for business trip (domestic area or overseas). Every time I travel, I need to carry a bag that filled with gadgets.

Back to April 2013, I went to Japan a month for business trip. Every time I pass through the airport custom, I felt embarrass. Everyone was looking and waiting for me to take all my gadgets out from my bag to the tray for scanning. Those gadgets are my personal notebook (15” display), corporate notebook (13” display), iPad (10” display) and DSLR. Furthermore, I had to remove my belt, watch and jacket. Totally, I needed 3 trays for my belongings. First for my notebooks, second for my tablet and DSLR and the third tray for my belt, wallet, watch and 2 smartphones. It took me about 1-2 minutes for the scanning process, whereby for others, it only took about less than 30 seconds to pass through the custom scanning.

Work with Gadgets:

Most of my gadgets are utilized for work and research. I work as a Server Administrator and Helpdesk Management (including in-house manufacturing system support). I need to carry my notebook all the time, in case, my factory’s user need immediate support or I need to check or monitor the server and network status. It is a 24 hours standby job. Those applications are working in Windows platform only. Some applications need Microsoft Visual Studio installed for codes debugging. iPad (Apple Store) does not have Microsoft Visual Studio installer.

How about file compatibility issues? I believe, most of us are using Microsoft Office (Excel, Power Point, and Words) or other Microsoft products (Microsoft Project, Visio, etc.) in their daily task. Although iPad has Numbers, Key Note and Pages to edit the Microsoft Office files, there are still some limitation and compatibility issues, such as Excel’s minor macros function.

Arrival of Surface Pro in my life


Surface Pro make my life easier and lighter! One unit of Surface Pro able to replace my notebooks and tablet (for travel).

Today, when my girlfriend and I were heading to McDonald, she asked me a question.

Her: Where is your notebook or bag? –> The bag that is containing my gadgets.

Me: Behind the seat, dear.

Her: Where? I couldn’t see it. Are you sure that you have brought your gadgets?

Me: Yes. I just bring Surface Pro.

Her: Where???

Me: The tiny tablet ar…~

Her: Ooo… I really can’t see it and first time I see you bring only a tablet… –.-

That’s the power of Surface Pro!

I will use these keywords to describe my Surface Pro…

Portable, light, less space, touch screen, mobility!


Surface Pro replaced my notebook and iPad during travel (reduces about 6kg of my travel bag) and it increase my productivity! I no longer need to convert my files into different format or adjust the document’s content alignment/layout anymore! I can easier sync my documents to SkyDrive and transfer to my Surface Pro.

Last add-on, Surface comes with USB port which easier for me to retrieve data from my flashdrive and connect to printer to print my documents!
