Just bought a brand new Surface Pro 3 from Curry's for £700. Couldn't wait for it to arrive, but now that it has I must say I'm underwhelmed. Firstly, as with so many Windows PCs, the damned Windows Update service doesn't work despite my trying all the usual stuff I've gleaned over the last 3-4 PCs so the thing is sitting there getting further and further out of date. Also, I couldn't connect to my work email via Outlook Web Access using the client supplied no matter what I tried (even though simply logging in via https on the Surface using the same credentials worked fine!). Eventually I got this working by creating a local account, deleting the mail account and re-creating it using the local account. So far this works but its just a kludge; only Microsoft could sell this crap to people. Also, the Surface heats up dramatically at the top right hand side, so much so that its uncomfortable to have on your lap when using as a tablet. I've had this experience with the latest Lumina Windows phones as well which also heat up very noticeably and have lousy battery life; there is clearly an issue for Microsoft here in that they just can't match Apple for battery life and are cooking their devices while trying! Lastly (for now) the hinge at the back is sitting out noticeably after just a week of use, which is pretty disappointing. Overall I do regret this purchase, it really isn't what I was expected given all the hype over these devices, and I couldn't honestly recommend it to anybody. Buy a proper PC - for the same money you'll get a very decent machine which does what it's supposed to. Between the crappy hot phones and now the disappointing Surface that's it for me with MS; I'm going to sell the Surface and buy a MacBook Air.
