    Hi .. New to surface but wanted one for a while.
    Was looking at the i5 128gb pro 3 available online for £650.

    Then saw the pro 4 about to be released .. Do held off.

    The pro4 equiv is £850 ... So is this worth the extra £200?

    Main criteria for me is the pen / screen as will use for note taking etc alongside my work laptop.

    Clearly better on pro 4 but is it £200 better ?

    Realise user views will be limited until act release , but appreciate thoughts to help my decision.

    Cheers
    Rich

    How long to you plan to use the device? The SP3 is Haswell Based (Gen 4 Core), the SP4 is Skylake (Gen 6 Core). The compute power of the SP4 is greatly improved as is the graphic performance all with about the same battery performance.

    Probably.
    • With Skylake CPU it should run cooler with less throttling,
    • bigger better screen,
    • better SSD,
    • additional custom chip to improve pen and touch,
    • thinner n lighter,
    • better front & rear cameras with Windows Hello support.
