Ive had my trusty first gen Surface RT for about 20 months now and it has served me well...ive loved it! However, it is getting really slow now and I have lost my recovery boot image to do a refresh. Im also a bit peeved that apps such as Sonos, Sky Go etc havent appeared so I was thinking of an upgrade. I have a number of options 1. Hold on until Surface Pro 3 in August. 2. Buy a non surface full windows tablet/hybrid 3. Buy a Surface Pro 2 Ive done a lot of research and I think a lot of the non microsoft hardware have compromises, even ultrabooks, so if possible I would like to stay with the Surface line. The Pro 3 is so damn sexy looking its very tempting. However, at just £569 for a 64GB Pro 2 and the fact that I already have a type cover 2, it looks very expensive. For what I want the only thing the Pro 3 has over the 2 for me is the colour and the thickness. Is the 2 still a good bet in peoples opinion? is the 3 such a vast improvement I should hold on? My use is web browsing, apps like sonos, facebook and sky go, word processing, outlook and powerpoint. I also like the idea of being able to use the digitiser pen to comment on PDF files and drawings (im an engineer). Any advice appreciated. Edit: how is fan noise on the 2 and battery life.? Im sort of used to the silence and the battery life of the RT model now.
