Well I guess this is the first proper tablet that can completely replace your ultraportable laptops, its compact, easy to handle, good battery and the processing power to do everyday tasks along with light gaming without any compromise that most tablets do to remain portable. Congrats to Microsoft on finally finding the balance for the surface tablet, The pricing is not too bad, I think the processor and the ssd drive cost make it expensive. I will probably get the i5 256gb for $1299

I got the $999 model. I have never really needed more than 100 gigs. If I do go over, I either can find things to erase or I move some things to another drive.

the one you got(128gb i5) is the best value one. Simply because this thing has USB3 and with a large external drive(2TB) 2.5" thats thin and light will be almost like a large SSD :)

I agree. The bag I use will be more than big enough to carry the Pro 3, an external drive, and other stuff with ease.

I think the Android Fans have to give MS surface team some respect on the hard work they put this into something that thin. But I love that Pen :)

No way, they will compare this with the crappy plastic thing that Samsung puts out there with android on board and then they will claim with 400$ they can buy a same android tablet. Thing is most of commentators here are clueless to what is what and why pro 3 is so expensive.

Compared to my $750 13" laptop.

Which isn't as thin, isn't built as well, doesn't have premium built materials, probably doesn't have SSD. No touch screen, no pen, Isn't as portable. Can't be a tablet, or a ultrabook when you want it. Ye ok, you win!

And dont have the godlike resolution this thing has. All of those points I have written add cost to the pro 3 and value that your laptop will never have. That doesn't mean your laptop is bad, its great for you. Thing is pro 3 isn't aimed at you. Now its aimed for professionals, business people and rich people.

So you are going to pay 1300$ (with the keyboard) to have less hard disk space, limited evolutivity, can not upgrade a lot of parts, heavy to useless in tablet mode, and small screen machine ? And no GPU ? And coming from Microsoft when we know all about Office history, IE6, Media Player, Windows 8 ? It is not because you are professionnal you should be silly, professionnals like everyone need the best for their money.

PS : 1300$ vs 750$ is almost 50% increase in price.

999 + 129 = 1300$ ? (not even mentioning the 800$ i3 version)

Lol $800 version must be the measly 64gb with usable available memory like 30gb lol. And i3 has an even crappier Intel3000 gpu. Argument invalid.

36GB . And afert you move the recovery partition you should get around 50GB at least. Do you even know what are you are talking about ? HD3000 is from sandybridge .. All 15W Haswell have either the HD4400 or the HD5000 , no matter if its a i3 or i7....

Not to mention that the Surface 3 now includes a POS N-Trig pen instead of a high quality Wacom pen.

Microsoft made a clever move going 3:2 aspect ratio and 12". The screen is big enough to replace an ultrabook and the 3:2 aspect ratio is much easier to manage when dealing with 10"+ tablets than 16:9. My final wish is to have a keyboard dock (with hard drive as a bonus) that holds the tablet in place like laptop style i.e Asus T100. I'm not convinced with the kickstand. It maybe good on flat surfaces but in bed, train etc...

Meh, too overprice Battery life is probably 30 minutes I'd better buy a laptop which has 16 GB of RAM and Core i7 rather than buy this tablet
