Hey guys and gals, my names Alex, I'm in the market right now for what to get for myself as far as a mobile 'pc' goes. I've been doing a lot of research on Microsoft's Surface Pro 3, and honestly I'm really happy with the results. What I'm looking for is pretty much what the SP3 has, mobility, but power. Now, that's just my general needs, honestly I could probably do without the SP3, but I'm starting to get into 3D modelling, and along with 3D modelling, a little bit of art. I don't and probably won't do it professionally, but more-so as something to do on the side for fun, and maybe to help developer buddies of mine looking for models or art of some kind, but still mostly for fun. (By the way, the version of the SP3 I'm looking at right now, is the i5 variant, with the 8gb of ram, and 256gb SSD. Read and believe it's the best price wise for the uses I'll be using it for, ie. 3d modelling, drawing, light games, etc. Explained more below.) And I've read up on the Yoga 2 a little as well, and I've found that it costs about the same as the Pro 3 for just about the same components. The pen for the SP3 looks really good and from what I've heard, works really well with the tablet. But besides just being a good tablet, I'm wanting something that can work as a bit of a laptop. (I'm a big gamer. BUT. When I'm on the road, I'm not the kinda guy to be interested in playing HEAVY games, really.) When I'm on the sail boat or on the road or something, I'd much rather have lighter (less battery required) games, like Dwarf Fortress, or small rogue likes, anything that's fun, requires thought and can drag me away from the drive (unless I'm driving). So I think the SP3 would be perfect for Dwarf Fort and other small games I play, simply because usually they require more processor and near to no graphics (with the occasional exception). So, I guess really, a tablet would be my best option, at least personally. I really don't want to lose that ability to use a pen in favor of being able to more easily modify and repair a device such as a laptop. I guess the next question is, is the Surface Pro 3 my best option for tablets? So far it's the most highest rated one I've seen, as good for regular consumers go instead of just professionals. So, I guess my question is, does anyone have their own opinions on the SP3 or other tablets possibly cheaper that are just about as good? Please, try to avoid being biased, or putting a product down due to a defect or something, I want good, sturdy advice with someone that's had a lot of experience with the SP3 while doing the same things I do, or at least similar. Cheers, Alex PS: Money isn't that much of a problem for me, really, but being cheap whilst also strong performance wise is a really good thing for me. (Used to work on a really really slow PC and really don't want to go back in time. ) Also, I am pretty good with computers, I've spent a good portion of my life working on them myself and even have built the PC I'm using right now myself, not that that matters too much, but it's more to say that if there are things I have to do to improve performance of the SP3 or something, etc to help, that kind of thing.
