    Surface Pro 3 competition heating up

    I've only used portrait mode to mark up PDF's.

    can't wait to buy surface pro 4

    Sure we do. Question is: Is thinner, faster, higher resolution and improved specs enough to warrant a SP4 purchase for current SP3 users or even for Microsoft to manufacture considering Skylake isn't that far off? For me, the answer is no.

    can't wait to buy surface pro 4

    SP4 + Skylake = Upgrade! SP4 + Broadwell U = Unnecessary Glad I didn't wait. I don't see MS pushing out an SP4 with that modest of a spec boost or radically different form factor ala SP2 to SP3.

    can't wait to buy surface pro 4

    Ahh. Here we go. For now that’s all the benchmarks we have to show. Like Haswell and Ivy Bridge before them, Broadwell looks like a solid upgrade from previous generation parts, but not with a lot of wow factor. Perhaps the SKUs with HD 6000 and Iris 6100 graphics chipsets will give us more to...

    Is there a product that has shipped with an equivalent processor in Broadwell's class that we can compare?

    can't wait to buy surface pro 4

    All reports I've read say Broadwell is a step back. At least on paper, the Surface Pro 3 with a Core i5 stacks quite well against the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro, at least when it comes to raw power. The base clock speed for the Surface Pro 3 Core i5 is 1.9 GHz versus the slower 1.1 GHz found on the new...

    Solved Chrome? Firefox?

    Had to run as administrator - success! Question: Why do I have to do that in first place. Aren't I elevated by default as administrator??

    Solved Chrome? Firefox?

    Malware? How so? I've never had any suspicious behavior on SP3.

    Solved Chrome? Firefox?

    Offline or web install won't work for me on my sp3. A google search turns up similar cases.

    Solved Chrome? Firefox?

    I love IE but it can't chromecast. Otherwise, IE is my browser of choice.

    Solved Chrome? Firefox?

    Why won't Chrome or Firefox install on my Surface Pro 3?

    Loving my new i7 SP3

    This is undoubtedly true. I can't even install Chrome on my sp3. It never installs. Granted, I only wanted to use it for Chromecast support but it's insane that it won't install - I know others have done it but it won't for me and that's fine.

    Do you use screen protectors?

    No. I use my Surface almost exclusively as a laptop though.

    Microcenter getting a special "batch" of i5 128GB tablets, is MS trying to make fools of customers?

    The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is the Gadget of the Year

    Maybe look into another device that doesn't affect productivity and stress you out? You can get a pretty good return if you sell it I imagine.

    The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is the Gadget of the Year

    I thought it's been documented the processor in the SP3 outclasses the Core M?

    Surface Pro 3 bends by itself due to heat

    Not my i7 256. Maybe I'm lucky. I render with Premiere on this all the time too.

    Upcoming Updates for the Surface Pro 3

    SO I left work and was connected to a N network, hit the power button to have SP3 sleep, put SP3 in leather folio, and went home. Pulled SP3 out of folio and it was warm. Unlocked SP3 and 15 seconds later it was connected to my AC network. That's my experience with new firmware.
