Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Didn't see this posted anywhere on the forum and thought some may be interested.



The new Microsoft Surface Pro 3 was released today, at least in the US and only in a few flavours though:

- 64GB / i3 Processor / 4GB RAM - $1,149 - Released August 31st
- 128GB / i5 Processor / 4GB RAM - $1,349 - Released June 20th
- 256GB / i5 Processor / 8GB RAM - $1,699 - Released June 20th
- 256GB / i7 Processor / 8GB RAM- $1,949 - Released August 31st
- 512GB / i7 Processor / 8GB RAM- $2,349 - Released August 31st

For the UK the details are:

- 64GB / i3 Processor / 4GB RAM - £639 - Released August 28th
- 128GB / i5 Processor / 4GB RAM - £849 - Released August 28th
- 256GB / i5 Processor / 8GB RAM - £1,109 - Released August 28th
- 256GB / i7 Processor / 8GB RAM - £1,339 - Released August 28th
- 512GB / i7 Processor / 8GB RAM - £1,649 - Released August 28th

http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/...ctID.300212300

It's a shame that the UK has to wait so long and that the higher spec'd version aren't out 'till late too.

Anyone interested in Surface Pro 3?

*Cheers for the edit mods!* (new post so you don't have to review it again)

Not much interest here it seems, understandably as it's probably not much of an overclocker! I've just ordered one from the States, to use for work and replacing the ipad the other half keeps "borrowing" .

I just hope that I find it half as useful as I think it'll be.

Just thought I should fix those prices for the US because the listed prices are absolutely way off.

In the same order:
- 64GB / i3 Processor / 4GB RAM - $799 - Released August 31st
- 128GB / i5 Processor / 4GB RAM - $999 - Released June 20th
- 256GB / i5 Processor / 8GB RAM - $1,299 - Released June 20th
- 256GB / i7 Processor / 8GB RAM- $1,549 - Released August 31st
- 512GB / i7 Processor / 8GB RAM- $1,949 - Released August 31st

Got this according to Microsofts Website. You were about $400 off on each tier which is why it seemed so high to me that I bothered to fix it:P.
Release dates are correct according to the info on MS website however.

The current surface pros are alot cheaper than these. Then again these have stupid amount of grunt for the size. I'd still rather get an ultrabook/MBP over one of these though.

I do like the idea of the surface, but they are too expensive.
