I'm possibly in the market for a Surface 3. I've been very pleased with my iPad, but feel limited by the smaller screen size and lack of several critical apps. I have several other machines, both Windows and OSX based, but I'm getting tired of carrying multiple devices for personal and work use. I'm having a hard time trying to decide what version to purchase. My choices are between the i5/8gb/256gb version and the high end i7 model. Typical usage for me consists of some AutoCAD work, drawing, email, web browsing, lots of ebooks, OneNote and running a Linux VM occasionally. Nothing too major I suppose. My gaming is pretty much limited to my MBP or iMac, although I might load some older games on the Surface 3. (I know that it's not really designed for gaming.) I'm not sure if the i7 would be overkill for my uses. I'm also a bit concerned that it might overheat, but I understand that some of those issues have been resolved. I'm also concerned that it might be best to wait for Windows 9 to come out before buying a Surface 3. I keep thinking I should just wait and see what they come out with. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm headed to the Microsoft store tomorrow to actually test one of these out, as the display model at my local Best Buy was broken.
