Michael Berry Comprehensive Review of the Surface Pro 9

When it comes to business productivity, the hardware you use is just as important as the skills you bring to the table. That’s why, here at Flotek Group, we’re always on the lookout for tech that makes life easier for professionals. My name is Michael Berry, and as a Senior Account Manager, I know how crucial it is to have a reliable device that helps me stay organised, keep in touch with clients, and manage projects efficiently. I’ll be sharing my comprehensive review of the Microsoft Surface Pro, a device I’ve been using for the last six months. 

First Impressions

When you first unbox the Microsoft Surface Pro, you immediately notice its sleek design and compact form factor. It’s as elegant as it is practical, and it doesn’t weigh you down. It can easily fit into your office bag, making it an excellent choice for those who are always on the move, meeting clients or working remotely. 

The screen is nothing short of breathtaking. The Surface Pro offers a vibrant 12.3-inch PixelSense display, with crisp visuals that make colours pop and text easier to read. This makes everything from browsing the web to working on presentations a much more enjoyable experience. 

Battery Life

We’ve all had that moment in an important meeting when our device’s battery starts to give out. But with the Surface Pro, battery life is one less thing to worry about. It offers up to 13.5 hours of video playback, which in real-world terms means you can go almost an entire workday without having to plug it in. A lifesaver, especially if you’re someone like me who is often out of the office meeting clients.  


The Surface Pro is not just about looks; it packs in powerful hardware too. It’s like having an office desktop that you can carry around. It easily handles multitasking, whether you’re hopping between dozens of browser tabs or working on large spreadsheets. In simpler terms, it gets the job done without making you wait. 

One of the most striking features of the Surface Pro is its flexibility. With the Surface Type Cover, it converts from a tablet to a laptop in a snap. The Surface Pen allows you to jot down notes or doodle in the margins during meetings just like you would with a traditional notebook. This makes it versatile enough to adapt to your work style, rather than forcing you to adapt to it. 

When it comes to connectivity, the Surface Pro has all the bases covered. It has USB-C ports, which means you can connect to a wide range of devices. And with the Surface Dock, you can turn your Surface Pro into a full-fledged workstation with multiple monitors and peripherals, all connected via a single cable. 

Price Point

No review would be complete without discussing the price. The Surface Pro is not the cheapest device on the market, but considering its range of features and performance capabilities, it offers good value for the money. There are different configurations available to suit various budgets and needs, so you can find one that’s perfect for you. 

Our Final Word

In a fast-paced business environment, the Microsoft Surface Pro serves as an excellent tool for professionals who value efficiency, flexibility, and reliability. It seamlessly blends form and function, offering a stellar display, enduring battery life, and robust performance, all in a portable package. 

If you’re someone who is always juggling between tasks and looking for a device that can keep up with your dynamic work life, the Surface Pro is certainly worth considering. It has certainly proven to be an indispensable part of my work toolkit, and I’m confident it can be for you too.
