Hi, I have been thinking about the surface for some time now. However, I am not sure which model to get. I am a heavy Onenote user. I am a lecturer and most of the time I need to read journal articles, highlight, annotate etc and compile them later in Onenote. Hopefully owners here can help guide me to which Surface or competitor to get. I have a powerful PC and laptop for gaming, so the surface is not for gaming. I have a note 3 and I use the S pen quite a lot too. The most intensive thing I will do is open firefox with lots of tabs and photoshop with few layers. One thing I am very keen on is the usage of the pen with photoshop to replace the wacom tablet. A quick fix when on the go. My ideal would be a core i3 with 512 GB space since space is more valuable to me. So this will be my third device, not my only device. My questions are: Is it possible to check word documents using the surface pen? I usually correct people's work using the track changes in Word. It is more natural to use the pen and scribble on the word document text rather than type it out. It is like correcting paper drafts. Is this possible with the Surface pen-word? However, I am worried, if I scribble with pen, it does not translate into proper track changes as you do with a keyboard. Also, is the pro model suitable for long usage, or is the non-pro better? Journal articles are usually two columns and the text is small to maximise space. Small screen = lighter, easier to hold one handed while doing work. Bigger screen = easier to read text. Does anyone have any experience in this? Are there any problems with the surfaces? BSOD? Are there some problems with the skylake surfaces? Should I hold back for now or wait for a Surface 4 (non-pro model) if it ever arrives? I am also quite keen on the HP elite x2 1012 model as it comes with screws and I can fiddle with the internals of the device. I kind of like the Samsung Tab ProS, addicted to the AMOLED screen, however I am not sure about the screen longevity. Windows programs have a lot of static colours. The taskbar, the white background in word and web browsers, and when correcting, things will be displayed for some time. I have read reviews where the screen turns-off quickly in order to save battery and presumably the screen itself. Thank you all for the feedback.
