i think you can try looking for a 2nd hand surface pro 3. the machine has 2 years warranty. those selling in the market should still have warranty.

Yes however that's the us store. Wait for the local 1. The best discount I have seen for surface 3 is free type cover and pen.

yeah, that was a good one, but i only managed to get Student Discount 10%, with Free type Cover - keyboard & Office 365 ( 1yr ) - didnt managed to get the PEN

i have a free Surface Sleeve - from 2 days ago Surface 4 event (but way too big for Surface 3) , more suitable for Surface Pro / Book ... but i wont even recommend using it, cos really too "thin" - not much protection per se

Just be wary when buying from US - the base model in the US doesn't ship with S-pen (weird, I know).

A few local shops selling Tab A 9.7 LTE at S$420 BNIB.

Of course, if budget allows, go Surface 3/Surface Pro 4. Multi-tasking on Windows still no horse run, mobile OS just too meh for that.

yeah, they gave out the surface sleeve at the surface 4 launch event, and also a luggage weighing device !! - that is really the most unsual freebie, i have ever received! but it is very very useful !!!

i'm using a lenovo yoga tablet 2 windows for school work and it works really well for me.

It runs on windows 10 (after upgrading) so the desktop version of google drive can be installed to auto sync all my files so that i have the latest copies on both my tablet and my home laptop. It comes with a detachable keyboard and has expandable sd card slot for more storage. It's a poor man's MS surface.

Downsides are its lagginess at times (overall still great usability) and high RRP ($699). Pick up a cheaper used one from carousell.
