    I already have an SP3 i5, and very much considering buying an i7, just to have as backup. Anyone else own more than one SP3?

    @jnjroach does. But it's a family thing, not a backup.

    Why not wait to buy an SP4 and keep the SP3 as your backup?

    Backup? A bit overkill... cloud/SSD/SD would do me.

    More of an upgrade and backup PC, really.

    Not sure when the SP4's are going to be available.

    Well, I went ahead and bought the Surface 3 with 4G LTE/128GB/4GB. I decided I want something smaller to bring out with me. I'll be using both the SP3 and S3. The SP3 will be at home use, and the S3 will be while I'm out. I may go ahead and upgrade to the SP4 when it does eventually come out, but probably not on day one.

    I bought the S3 through AT&T, so it won't be here until Monday. I'm anxious to set it up like my SP3. Maybe I shall call it, "Mini S3.". :p
