Picked up a Surface Pro 3 with the i5 this morning from Best Buy. So far I am really liking it. This is my 1st Windows 8 experience and I am a bit surprised how much I like it. Previously I've avoided Windows 8 because I didn't think I'd like it. The main use for me will be as a Tablet with the added benefit of it also being a powerful PC when needed. I recently sold my MacBook Pro Retina and I tired a Samsung Tab Pro 12.1 before buying the Surface Pro 3. Windows 8 is not as bad as I thought it would be and it's actually pretty nice in my opinion. I really like the Surface Pro 3 build quality and the screen is gorgeous. I am also really liking the pen that was included. I have not yet purchased the keyboard and I'm not sure if I will as like I said, its main purpose for me will be as a tablet.
