Microsoft Surface Windows 8 Pro:

What's hot: Classy and good looking, great build and materials, fast, clean Windows 8 Pro install, comes with digital pen, 1080p display, wildly portable for a Core i5 machine.

What's not: A little heavy for a tablet, a bit small for a laptop; but a valiant attempt at marrying the two. Battery life passable but not laudable.

"Windows 8 users, especially those with a Surface Pro. How to make full of use it? Aside from reading books, browsing the web, watching HD movies on Surface Pro is also a wise choice. Well , I have lots of AVI(XviD, DivX) video files, but my Surface Pro tablet can not help me to playback it directly.
