First, I love my Surface Pro 3. I am a compulsive note taker and I write on everything! Yellow pads, envelopes, receipts, even things that you definitely aren't supposed to write on. I've also learned that when I type notes, I don't really retain near as much information, and, I'm far less likely to type notes. This led me to use my iPad for hand-written notes, using a good program called, "Notability." Unfortunately, the technology wasn't there! I went through several Stylui (is that the plural of "stylus"?) as those capacitive stylus' only last for two or three weeks (and, they didn't work that good when they did work-). This led me to buy a super expensive stylus, but that didn't solve the problem. When I tried a stylus on a Surface Pro 2 the heaven's opened! This is exactly what I was looking for! That led me to the Surface Pro 3- which for me, worked even better. I've since migrated to the desktop version of One Note, which I really like, but I know I'm only scratching the surface (no pun intended...) of what it can do. Unlike most of you (at least I imagine-) as a tablet, I don't like it much. Even the improved form factor still makes web-browsing (as a tablet) far less easy than on my iPad Air. My son, who loves Windows and dislikes all things Mac, then set up the desktop side of 8.1 to work for me. Since he did that, I haven't looked back. It has replaced my Macbook Air (but not my iPad, oddly enough) but, aside from phone, it is the one piece of technology that I spend the most time with and I can't be happier with it. Am I the only one that seldom uses the tile side of their surface? My son configured mine so when I push the windows button it launches my desktop start menu. What a great product! And, the new keyboard is fantastic!
