Hey all! Well, over the past few weeks I have been eyeing the SP3 mainly because of the form factor and the all in one concept really appeals to me and my lifestyle. Bit of a history from me. Ive been using a 13" non retina MBP for the past 3.5 years, that I bought in April 2011. Over time, I started hating Mac more and more (mainly the OS) and after buying an ipad air last Dec 2013, I honestly couldnt go back to the MBP because the screen was so inferior and felt so fuzzy. Also, I cant stand the keyboard on my model as the feedback is just way too soft for my liking. I much prefer ultra flat (with minimal key travel) but with a nice firm click when the keys are pressed. My MBP keyboard was just mushy and actually required more work from your fingers. It was a major chore to type on, I carried around an external keyboard with it. Fast forward a bit, over the past year since I got my ipad air, I pretty much have been using the ipad everyday after work (I already spend 8 hours a day in front of my computer at work, so the last thing i want is to spend more time at my home desk). Over time i just realized that i much prefer to do my computing on the couch or in bed when at home. Anyways, over time (because i was typing so much on my ipads from overusing it), it just got tedious over time typing on a touchscreen especially when I had to type out longer paragrahs. I even tried Logitech attachment keyboards and didnt like it and couldnt justify the price. I cant quite put my finger on it but keyboards on an ipad just dont feel right to me. And of course I wouldnt use my MBP because the keyboard sucked and the screen was so fuzzy. amd i rarely used my monitors because i didnt want to be at a desk. Ive had my MBP connected to two 24" monitors at my desk for the past year and maybe use it 1-2 hours every weekend if that. Thats the only time I would actually enjoy using it was when I had it connected to better displays and keyboard. Ive been wanting to sell my MBP for the past year and a half, but the only thing that has always scared me was that i would lose too much money. The resale value on macs today isnt near was it was 5 years ago because pretty much everyone has one today! Well if im not enjoying using it, then its better than it just sitting there collecting dust. So this is where the SP3 actually appeals to me and I think potentially is a much better fit in my life than the MBP + ipad air combo. What do you guys think? Has anyone here converted from mac + ipad to SP3? I picked up the core i5 128GB model a couple days ago and all I have to say is that Im absolutely in love with this thing! THIS IS ONE ULTRA SLICK DEVICE!!! I am falling in love with this thing! I definitely did not see this coming. And I was really hesistant in trying this out because of the price!!!!! The price was the main thing holding me back - the fact that even if I sold my Mac and ipad air, I would still have to shell out at least a few hundred for the SP3. Mind you, selling my MBP ($650-700ish) and ipad air ($300ish) would really eat majority of the $1200 cost. The screen on this thing is absolutely crazy and blows away the screen on my MacBook Pro. This is forsure retina quality. The keyboard is actually surprisingly soooo comfy to type on and a joy to use. I just love the ultra low key travel and super crisp throwback from the keys. This makes typing absolutely effortless with minimal strain on the fingers. Another thing is that I JUST got a new phone that has a 6.4" screen and my ipad air is only 50% larger. 6.4 vs 9.7 = 3.2" difference. I put them side by side and its not a huge difference. I wonder if the SP3 12" screen would be more suitable to go hand and hand with my 6.4" phone? I do love the stylus and the fact i can now take notes and just do so much more than on the ipad. i have always wanted a USB PORT on my ipad. having to sync up to itunes (which i absolutely hate) just to remove pictures has always been one of my pet peeevs. But i worry if this device is safe long term to be used a lot in bed (meaning it lays on bedsheets and blankets and clothes a lot of the time. Since it does get quite hot! Another thing is, typing on an ipad so much for a year is so different than the sp3 keyboard. i find the placement of some of the keys on the SP3 on screen keyboard to be in bit awkward non ideal positions. why is the keyboard off centre! is there a way to change the keyboard styles? What are your thoughts on my situation?
