I've been interested in upgrading from my Surface RT for a while now. I had kind of convinced myself I liked the Pro 3 i3, then this came out. I use my Surface for word processing, keeping up with email and surfing the internet, my concept of gaming is Words With Friends on Facebook. I use the RT kind of as a personal teleprompter. I'm a preacher, and the Surface sits on my pulpit when I preach. The RT has adequately met all those needs. It does sometimes throttle a little more than I like, but that's not too bad. If the Surface 3 will do what I do then it would be good. If I went to the Pro 3 how much difference would I see for the applications I use? I had asked a similar question pre Surface 3, but it seems I need to ask again since this device has come out.
