Happy Birthday Surface Pro

The Microsoft Surface Pro turned five years old this year.  In a short five years, Microsoft has penetrated the mobile computer device market with stunning success.

As you know from my recent blog post Kudos to Microsoft Surface Support, I’m a fan.  While my system is a Surface Book, it is a descendant of the Surface Pro.  According to Microsoft, the idea behind the Surface Pro was the following:

“We wanted to challenge the concept that people should have to choose between the portability and convenience of a tablet and the power and productivity of a PC.”

Here’s a nice graphic of Surface Pro’s first five years and a video that Microsoft has put out to celebrate.  Speaking of celebrating, if you’ve been thinking about getting a Surface Pro, now’s the time.  Microsoft is offering a $200 discount this weekend to celebrate.
