[QUOTE=Amiga OS;44871847]I'm just slightly bitter about this, bought my Surface Pro 2 about 4 months ago, and I didn't even get the model with the refreshed CPU (it has a slight poke on the clockspeed)[/QUOTE] Welcome to the world of technology. Once you buy something, soon after, they will be something superior to it. It's all about waiting for what's superior enough to satisfy your needs, and you don't need higher.
So... Why does this happen ? [t]http://i.imgur.com/CnVB2mP.jpg[/t] [t]http://i.imgur.com/v8pwkdE.jpg[/t] [t]http://i.imgur.com/l3DYLLL.png[/t] Bonus [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/J0TFghX.jpg[/IMG] Comparing a Laptop to a tablet
probably because the surface pro line is meant to mix laptop and tablet
It is not a fair comparison if surface doesn't have a keyboard.

I definitely don't regret picking up a SP2 and I would actually recommend it as a cheaper alternative now that the 3 is out
[QUOTE=Errorproxy;44872868]I really wish MS would just release a hinge keyboard for the Surface Pro. Like a transformer book. Kickstands are way less portable than hinges. I don't understand why they want to sell the kickstand thing so much. Probably just to stand out.[/QUOTE] I kinda miss old tablets before all this iPad/Android mess. I used to have a Compaq TC4200 that had one of those twisty-hinges that could flip the thing between laptop and slate in about a second while keeping the whole thing in one piece. Why doesn't anyone make tablets in that form factor anymore?

The only difference is that you can use a user interface that isn't designed purely for a mouse and keyboard.

The iPad showed everyone how to make touch only tablets that don't suck.

I mean, can you take it out for a day, sleeping and waking it regularly without actually turning it off and still have it charged when you get in after? I'm probably going to get an SP3 for Uni and, it's hard to judge how the battery will fare for me based on 8 hours of browsing time or whatever they said in the presentation and I'm guessing the battery life is gonna be pretty close.
I think they'll probably update the cpu like they did with the Surface Pro 2, this looks like an old article, but ya: [url]http://laptoping.com/haswell-or-broadwell-surface-pro-3-cpus-probably-both.html[/url]
[QUOTE=Amiga OS;44875741]Even with the keyboard, and the pen it weighs less.[/QUOTE] By how much? Even without the accessories the weight difference is negligible.

2000$ in USA 2000€ in Europe ~640€ difference REALLY ?
