In the tech world, isn't there something always coming up? If not in 2 weeks, in 2 months, or in 6 months?I'm about to buy the Surface Pro n the next 2 weeks, but from all the speculations and talk around I don't know what to do. Should I go for it or is there anything coming up?
wow, this is news to me, 7" or 8", nah not my type! Guess I'll go for the Pro now. They have a nice bundle atm for $1,138. I think it's a good deal.Go for it, you'll always be waiting otherwise! The main rumour atm seems to be for a Surface Mini (around 7" or 8") so think about what you want... is that too small? Then it's probably not worth you waiting away.
Check this out:Don't hold your breath waiting for a Haswell SP. No time soon if ever.
However, there are competing non-Haswell devices such as the Sony Duo ($1200 - on sale at BestBuy) and Haswell devices such as the Dell XPS 11 ($1200+?) and Samsung ATIV Q ($1500) you may wish to consider as well before pulling the trigger on a SP. Sony Duo out now, ATIV Q very soon and XPS 11 at the holidays.
** Sony Duo is same price as SP 128, has 2 GB more ram, 1920 x 1080 11.6 inch ips screen, full backlit keyboard and 2 usb 3.0 ports and a pen. Unless you are in love with the SP design, this is a better bit of kit for the same money (too bad isn't Haswell, c'mon Sony!). It does weigh about .4 pounds more if that's a big deal. It's devices like this that tell me MS needs to cut their price on the SP or include the keyboard and a year of Office. Right now, for the same money this is clearly a better device.
Huh, don't trust that price for an i7. Either a fake or a refurb. I only buy from name sellers.Check this out:
