With little funds at the time when Surface came out I went for a Kobo Arc, as it was mostly for reading, with the intention of trading up later. The 7inch was too small but it fitted the bill at the time, although I was no fan of the Android system. An an unfortunate accident with the cat while it was charging before Christmas meant I had to buy fast and cheap, which gave me the Asus T100. Okay for what I wanted but it is a bit of a cow to turn on, has to think about it, screen not brilliant although passable, and only a 5 point whatsit. Anyway when the Surface 3 was announced and with time to save the pennies, I ordered. Now I'm thinking it will be too big for simply reading, a bit of internet, email etc and a few lightweight games. I don't really go out with what I have, probably because it can be tetchy, I only used the keyboard on the Asus when I set it up and other than reading (I normally use a made to order 15.6 laptop) and I've not even registered the copy of Office on it. My lust is for the Surface 3 but in all honesty for me it will be overkill and a waste. I'm retired so my life is as busy as I want to be and sat on the sofa is where I do most of my work, only vacating to a desktop when I want to print something off or scan. So what, I like the idea of the Surface 2 because it is lighter. The RT puts me off a little although apart from a few books that use Adobe Digital Reader, the rest are Kindle and Kobo, both of which are on RT although I do like Firefox and not IE. The other thing with the RT and Pro is that I could sneak it in and my other half wouldn't even notice because the size will be about the same. Even he will notice that the 3 is larger. So what would you do, save money and go for the Surface 2, lighter, better battery life, or go for the Pro?
