HI everyone, I am on the edge of buying a surface 3. I am in my fist semester of grad school and my google chromebook (which has been awesome for only 200 bucks) is not cutting it. I am unable to download and run software of any kind on google's OS unless there is an app for it in the google store. So using PDF research citation managers such as Mendeley is not possible. Furthermore, its unable to run Java which conflicts with some of my schools online options. I have been getting by with google doc's, but it would probably easier to use office. Lastly, I may need to make some light use of statistical software at a later date. I know SPSS, R, and SAS, will defiantly not run on the chromebook, but will they run on the Surface 3 with 4GB of RAM? Its not really in my budget to get a pro version. I also like the idea of being able to lie in bed and read some literature on the tablet version before I go to bed, which is not very practical on my Chromebook. I am looking for something to carry me through my masters degree including my massive thesis at the end, and maybe if I am lucky into the start of a PhD. Is the Surface 3 gonna work for me?
