Hi, I am looking for some advice from people that have used this machine. I currently have a MacBook Air as my main computer but I am looking for a secondary machine that is not a Mac. I am a college professor and use Microsoft office for classroom materials and I want something that is more productive than a mobile device like an iPad or other tablet but I don't want a 2 in 1. What attracted me to the Surface line was that it ran full Windows which is what I am looking for. Right now I am playing with a budget of about $4-$500 and was wondering if the Surface 3 base model is good enough for a secondary machine that I would use as a media device, to give presentations in class, edit power point and word documents, etc.? Or would I be better going with the Surface Pro 3? Sorry this is a little long winded but just looking for some advice.
