    Which model? The i3/4GB model will bog down faster than the i7/8GB.

    Define 'many'. 5? 10? 100? 10,000,000,000,000,000,000?

    Welcome to the forum.

    As stated above, you should define the number of PDF's that you're talking about. The more RAM you have will help with more open documents.

    I didn't have my SP3 yet, but i want the less expensive. So if the i3 can do this, i would take it i think.

    You need to open 100 ~400K/ea PDF files for your workflow?

    I do not have the real number. But i would like to know if it is possible. I know it seems weird to open 100 PDF's.
    It might be 20 maximum.
    I juste would like to know if there aer no potential issues. :)

    I regularly open 300-400 MB PDF files on my SP3, but it is a i5/8/256 machine, when I had the S2 with only 2GB of RAM I could open these same files but it was slower...

    Much of the performance depends on the PDF Reader you are using and what you need to do with the files, the built in Reader is light weight and fast but very basic, Drawboard PDF offers much more in features but tends to only allow 5-10 PDF files open at one time.
