I actually don't use mine anymore, but only because I upgraded to a Surface Pro 6 from the Surface 3. Which reminds me I need to charge it again, power it up, and delete all of my stuff off of it before I throw it away or sell it. I did consider trying to replace the screen or pay someone to do it, but I am still not sure it is going to be worth it or not yet. I LOVE the Surface 3/Pro. I really do believe detachables are the way things should be for laptop type use. You should always have the option to go to a tablet for consumption and then plug into a dock for work or attach the keyboard for mobile work. Some people love making it look like a laptop by purchasing a more solid keyboard and making it attach more securely and give it the laptop feel.I started this thread years ago. Hard to believe that I still use this daily. Probably the longest I have ever owned a computer.
Unless you're specifically speaking of the exact look and feel of the Surface Book keyboard, Brydge already makes a hard form factor detachable keyboard for the surface pro making it look like a laptop instead of a tablet...I agree, the form factor is really great! And I really hope my next Surface Pro 2017 (I assume the light bleed will get worse and I have to return this one as well) will be the final Surface Pro 2017 and I have no more issues.
Would love it if Microsoft was blending the Surface Pro and Surface Book. With that I mean: create a new Surface Pro with a kick stand, but make it in a way that you can either connect a Type Cover or a base like the one from the Surface Book. I think the Surface Book devices look great as well. Really great job there!
