£800 for a 4GB/128GB machine? That's the sort of stunt that Apple would pull to force you to buy the more expensive, overpriced version.....

If this was an apple product it would have been slated to the coreBizarre …If this was an apple product it would have been slated to the coreBizarre how this is hot at only 128 and 4 RAM


When it comes to electronics, the vast majority of people on here don't realy understand the product that they're voting on. That's why rubbish or overpriced products get hot, and good deals get only lukewarm.

Those people vote hot probably because:

1. John Lewis mentioned somewhere in the title
2. 3 year guarantee sounds good (even though no decent laptop breaks down within 3 years)
3. Flippy tablet convertible thing sounds pretty trendy.
4. They assume every 'good' laptop costs about £800
5. Microsoft mentioned in the title. That's a well known company.
6. They don't really understand RAM or storage requirements.

This is the sort of thing that my dad would vote hot but then he's clueless about computers and how much they cost or ought to cost.

Indeed i mean the form factor is great and i like the look of the machine but for those specs nope 4GB of ram is a joke
Ive got one of the for my works pc but 256gb Great form factor. Excellent screen. Also have the multi port brick outfitting to 2 x 24 inch monitors on my desk. Its the best machine ive used and nothing ive thrown at is slows it down.

It does but its black, the 150 one is the 'signature edition' which is platinum but its essentially the same, the black one is worth £125 in the microsoft store
I don’t like the price but I’ve recently tried one of these, albeit with 8GB of RAM, and it really is quite good. Hopefully it will inspire other manufacturers to produce something of equal quality but with a more reasonable price tag.

Bizarre how this is hot at only 128 and 4 RAM
Edited by: "Nicolas" 10th Dec 2017
Just had a chat with Microsoft customer service in the uk branch. Supposedly the LTE versions are out for the business customers and they should be out to the general public soon. No date but they said hopefully before the end of the year.

So you might want to hold off but free returns so pretty risk free

Cold. 4GB RAM is a joke in 2017 almost no matter the price. It's really criminal that they still make machines with this little memory and completely agree that this is only designed to drive people to the higher prices models. My 18 month old phone has 50% more memory and cost 2.5x less than this. Unacceptable.

not a fan given the lack of servicability - if it breaks you need to send it back and dont see it for at least 6 weeks with no SLA around the support

No thanks

This is probably best piece of hardware Microsoft have ever made. Forget Apple, if you want quality Windows Device. This is it, your looking at the specs and thinking nah !!, If you have ever used one of theses, they are special. Worth every penny !!!

If you got this at JL on Black Friday, get on the phone. They will refund the difference.
Sorry, forgot to say - scorching at £849. Hotter than the sun at £799.

You are talking like the RAM and the size of the storage is the only thing that matters. You are wrong though.
MZzzz23 h, 22 m ago

This set is an actual bundle. It isn't just called a bundle. It is a single box with the SP 2017 i5/4GB/128GB and Keyboard bundled together. It looks like JL overestimated demand. Nevertheless, if your workflow needs 8GB RAM, it is likely that MS will continue to gouge prices for such configurations.

I voted hot because I use this device as my daily driver, and when it comes to understanding specs, I have a solid grounding. I also know that this device runs flawlessly with my workflow which regularly includes OneNote, Word, Excel, SPSS, NVivo, Mendeley, and Multiple Chrome tabs split across three monitors (2 1080p, and the device screen).

It is a tablet. You won't be upgrading anything about it without killing the warranty.

I checked out three 2017 Surface Pro devices at John Lewis. None of them had so much as a hint of lightbleed. Likewise, the one upon which I am typing right now has no light bleed.

Beware the noisy whine of the noisy whine.

What a load of tosh, I build Pcs in my spare time and have a GTX 1080 gaming PC. The Surface Pro is a cracking bit of kit and a bargain at this price.

It's so slim, well built with an incredible screen and super portable. The pen is also very useful and the surface cover works perfectly.

Cracking bit of kit and so definitely be getting the SP5 when they are released.

It would seem it isn't your Dad who is clueless.

Because the closest comparison to this would be an iPad Pro 12.9 256gb which is over £1000 with the keyboard? Or even the 64gb iPad Pro which is nearly £900 with the keyboard, and let's remember the surface is a full pc AND a tablet? So for most people, who may want an average laptop for just browsing, shopping and just casual usage, and a tablet, this is actually really good value for money, I've got this exact spec of the pro 4 and it's amazing, and the 8gb i5 pro 3 which is also amazing, and frankly I don't notice much of a difference between either in performance and I use both pretty much interchangeably!

I've been building PCs since they were first invented, owned loads of top end PCs, laptops and gaming cards over the years and have my own IT company employing over 20 staff. Does make me more qualified to comment than you then?

I'm not saying that he Surface Pro isn't a good computer, I'm saying that this spec isn't worth £800. Microsoft are running a big margin on this.

It's not the only thing that matters but 4GB/128GB is certainly restrictive other than for basic office tasks.

It is easy to upgrade the RAM and SSD on these?
