Just recently, I posted a comment in a thread about the Surface Pro 3 being the best. This is my 'new' story. I'm starting to worry. I bought a Surface Pro 1 when they were first available. I really like the machine. Didn't care for Win 8.0. Liked Win 8.1 and like Win 10 on it. The battery life was mediocre, but an external battery pack when traveling, fixed that. I replaced my antique laptop with a Surface Book the first day they were out. The drivers and Win 10 had a few initial glitches, but the hardware was good. But now the Book firmware/software is good and stable. So all is well. Then, late last year I damaged the Surface Pro 1 while traveling. Rats. I lived with the damaged screen until it completely failed. Then about 6 weeks back I found a Surface Pro 3, refurb, I5, very cheap. I couldn't pass it up, even though I preferred a 10 inch model, this was fine. I was VERY happy with the Pro 3. Good performance, good enough battery life. I was a happy camper. Then, two weeks ago, it just shut down. Dead to the world. I took it to a Microsoft store, and they handed me another refurb. I was bummed that I needed to configure another tablet, but happy for the quick replacement. Then, last week, that refurb would not boot. The screen would only flash a few times when powered up. I took THAT back and the tech could not get it to do anything, so here I am, setting up another refurb. So my question is, am I doomed to setting up refurbed units for the next 11 months until the warranty is up, then I will have a dead Pro 3? As in, are all of the refurb units going to fail? I really like the unit, when it works, but I am getting worried.
