    Hi guys,

    I've just registered here because im very interested in the Surface Pro.
    I'm going to start to study in september and I'm looking for a device to mainly take notes at the university,
    but also for things like a little gaming (not hardcore stuff but only basics like League of Legends, some Minecraft and so on)
    and came across the Surface Pro.

    My question is now should i buy a Surface now since Haswell has been released and it improves battery live and also graphics performance?
    I will be using the tablet for about 3 years and back a few years ago i bought a iPhone 3G just a few weeks before the 3GS came out and was kinda frustrated since i didn't know it was coming out.

    I'm not familiar with the speed things take to come out. So if we can't expect a tablet with Haswell chip until Sept-Oct-Nov I think i will go for the Surface.

    Hope you guys can help me since i couldn't find a topic about that specific issue

    Greets!

    Wait 2 weeks until 26th June (Microsoft BUILD). Apple is offering Haswell MacBook Air from TODAY.

    Thanks for the replies guys!

    Still i've got the chance to grab a 64GB modell for around 550€. Used ofc but only 2 weeks old sold by a friend of mine.

    I think i'll go for that since i can resell it pretty easy and would probably even make a revenue

    I agree, definitely either do it or don't do it, lol :). I predict a 100% chance of something.
