    Hi all, from the sunny southern interior of B.C., Canada- aka Wine Country.
    I am a self taught and fairly savvy computer user and gadget lover. Microsoft Windows was always my choice of PC, and I currently own an HP All-in-One, about 4 years old.
    I use it less now, as I also have an iPad Mini for travelling light and another laptop for work.
    I use Microsoft Office a lot, so when the SP3 was unveiled, I knew I had to own it. I wanted a tablet/laptop that was light, and fully functional that could run all of my windows programs and have expandable memory.
    I chose the i5 256 gb model, and purchased the docking station and keyboard cover. So far I love it. Still getting used to the on screen keyboard, but improving.
    I came here to information share, ask questions and meet other SP3 lovers, maybe even help a few.
    I look forward to meeting you and making a few friends along the way.
    When I am not playing with one of my electronic "toys" or working, I enjoy spending time socializing with friends and family, amateur photography, am a foodie and wine appreciator. I sing, write, and love to be in, near or on the closest body of water. Good thing I live on a lake, huh?
    Thanks for reading my introduction.

    My SP3 w/ 128GB just arrived on Tuesday, but I've had an RT for awhile. The Pro is very nice. I was a little surprised at how nice the on-screen keyboard was while I was relaxing on my recliner. I like it better than the one on my iPad.

    Welcome! Enjoy your new toy.
