    Did you checked that the adapter has to be ordered separately this time ?? it mentioned on the web site. ?? what is the cost ?

    [1] Office sold separately.

    [2] System software uses significant storage space. Available storage is subject to change based on system software updates and apps usage. 1GB = 1 billion bytes. For more information, see surface.com/storage.

    [3] Surface Covers sold separately

    [4] Adapter required, sold separately.

    [5] Up to 9 hours of battery life for video playback. Battery life for other uses will vary.

    [6] Your new Surface comes with a one-year limited hardware warranty and 90 days of technical support.

    Just preordered the 256gb version, gonna see if my 130$ typecover 2 works on it or not.

    What Adapter? 36-watt power supply comes with the package, are you insane?

    Yeah...I saw that footnote#4 also. But I think it would be really stupid of MS if the box did not include the adapter and the pen Highly unlikely that it wouldn't though.

    Edit: BTW, on the MS-UK website, there is no Type Cover 3!!! And, they will ship by 31st August!!!! Damn!

    Edit: Sorry. The Type Covers are available. But oddly, they are listed as Type Cover only - no numeric designation.

    Yes you can use your typecover 2.

    FAQ

    Can I run everything on Surface Pro 3 that I can on my laptop or desktop?

    A: Yes, Surface Pro 3 is a full laptop replacement.

    How does the magnet on the keyboard work?

    A: The magnet is designed to increase the on lap typing experience. Simply connect the magnet to the bottom of the device.

    Does Surface Type Cover and Type Cover 2 work on Surface Pro 3?

    A: Surface Pro 3 works best with Surface Pro 3 Cover, however your Touch and Type Cover 2 will click in and work with Surface Pro 3.

    Note 4 refers to this sentence (which admittedly also doesn't make much sense):
    "Plus, you can easily connect your peripherals and transfer files via a full-size USB 3.0, microSD card reader, and Mini DisplayPort.[4]"

    I'll be getting the 128 with Blue Cover....but I won't be pre-ordering it. I want to buy it as and when it is generally available.
