    What do you guys think?

    Is the core M more powerful than my SP3 i5?

    No i don't think so, it features a weaker cpu with no cooling in a thin aluminium shell which will run hot and cause problems in the long run. You are better off with a Surface Pro 3, i5 version which features a real i5 cpu and proper cooling.

    I don't think you can compare Apples to Threes. Also I imagine that the Core M's will come in various speeds just like the I3, I5, & I7.

    Rather than moving yet another thread to where it should go, since there is a link to an in progress discussion, this is getting closed.
