For surface book, it make more sense to get the model with dGPU, because that is the key selling point of Book, of course the design as well.

Even you get the i5, 256g SSD, 8gb RAM, it will cost USD$1900, approx SGD$2700. Running a powerful machine on 8gb RAM, might be abit slow after awhile.

You can still expand the SSD via external, like getting the Samsung T1 SSD. You can get it at a attractive price during Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales in US.

microsd is not in the same class as ssd even if you buy the fastest, its still much slower than internal or even external ssd.

Having said that, the price of Surface book is really expensive. I'm sure other big brand will follow similar design at a more affordable price

Make me feel like getting one lol. My ipad air not zai enough.
You are comparing iPad air with surface pro. Comparing wrong class bro. IPad air vs surface. Macbook air vs surface pro. Macbook pro vs surface book. Alot ppl get the wrong idea about surface pro or their target audience, and Microsoft did not really bother much to clarify that too, hence consumer suffer.

Yah Ipad pro is great device however it is still an IOS platform, even though there are IOS apps for MS Office and Outlook. It is still more for leisure, if you need for work, play serious games, Windows platform is still the best.

Need some expert advice, Is the pro 4 m3 good enuff for basic use. Example MS office, outlook, some games like AVA, counterstrikes, football manager and etc.

This is because i m in a dilemma..its either Pro 3 i5 128gb is 1248 + 199 = 1447 or pro 4 m3 128gb 1338 + 199 = 1537. Difference only 90 bucks.

Thank you.

You comparing Pro 3 and Pro 4, the Intel processor is different Pro 3 using the 4th Generation while Pro 4 using the latest 6th Generation.

You will be spending approx $1400 plus, might as well spend another $90 to get the latest model instead of the old one. Unless you getting a pre-owned set, which is much cheaper, should be less than 1k, then it make more sense to compare.

Ya.. if buying new, it make more sense to get the SP4. However, the 6th gen i5 has a much better graphics unit compared to the m3 so it is something you may want to consider if you want to play some games. The price jump is also quite hefty but it is a better choice.

If not, used SP3 is a steal now since people are upgrading..

One good news is that Microsoft has reduced the extended 1 year warranty from $229 to $150
