Consumer Reports is no longer recommending Microsoft Surface laptops and tablets.
The publication on Thursday removed its "recommended" rating for Microsoft's Surface Laptop and the Surface Book. This applies to both 128GB and 512GB storage options.
This is the first time in two years Consumer Reports removed a laptop recommendation when it pulled ratings for three Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) models and a Lenovo (LNVGF) laptop due to repair histories.

But this is a surface pro, not a laptop nor surface book. Right?

Consumer Reports recently conducted a survey of nearly 91,000 people who bought new laptops and tablets between 2014 and the beginning of 2017. The study estimated that about 25% of Microsoft Surface devices will have problems by the end of the second year of owning the product. These problems could include a laptop randomly shutting down.

I know they had problems with Surface 3 with battery failure ..... they got from two different suppliers and the one from LG was the one you wanted.

No, but the warranty is farking AWESOME. If you have a problem they can't fix, they give you whatever the latest version is. My first surface pro was the original, which I got by trading away my MacBook pro. Bought the extended warranty. Down the line, I accidentally killed it (concrete + computer + 6 foot drop = bad combo) and took it in. Walked out with a brand new pro 3 and keyboard. Same thing happened to my wife under very mysterious circumstances 😁

Eh... Its more like YMMV. I have the Original Surface Pro 4 with 2 of my friends and after a 1.5 years of ownership. My friend with warranty has had 2 replacements. He boiught the warranty and they would not give him the new version. His Surface was artifacting at that time. Gave him a ton of shit over it till he finally got his replacement. Its apparent that a lot of these frequently develop problems. My own has a super sensitive power button for some reason such as it goes to sleep while I'm tapping the screen. My other guy works for Best Buy and his glitches the hell out too. However, it is a fabulous device while it works. Though honestly I'd say Microsoft warranty is also ymmv depending on store/area.

In general, electronics and warranties are almost always ymmv, with a lot of variables in play. But I do know a lot of folks with varying models of surface pro, most have never had an issue. It's anecdotal, of course, but I know several others who got the new versions when warranty problems arose. I do think they're stricter now than they used to be (understandably), and replacements probably come down to what they have in stock. If they have the same model, odds are that's what you're getting 😁

So in other words, you abused the lenient warranty process? Unless of course the warranty covers accidental damage.

The extended warranty does cover accidental damage. And it was an accident. Definitely not on purpose.

But furthermore, there is nothing abusive about going into the store with a problematic product under a warranty you paid for and having them exchange it.
