Consumer Reports has pulled their "Recommended" designation
from Microsoft's Surface Pro devices and now recommends against buying any Microsoft tablets and laptops, based on survey results that indicate that as many as 25% will experience problems within the first two years of use.
In this day and age, that is shockingly bad for any computer, let alone one sold as a premium device, as this opinion piece
from Computerworld notes.
And if you think that Microsoft is the unwitting victim of circumstances beyond their control, it seems they have been cutting costs
by substituting pairs of 512GB SSDs for a single 1TB drive in their top of the line Surface models.
