$736 for Surface Pro 1 at student price but no touch cover included. Is that worth it? Lol. Don't know if it can replace my Macbook Air for simple portability to school.
I do not see the worth sorry, for me gadgets that are 1 year back should be cost roughly 599 especially for a product which Microsoft is trying to get rid off from their warehouses.

If your needs is just that then go ahead, but when I see Pro 2 is such a monster in specs, I want that one more as the processor is faster, improvements in viewing angle stands. The battery life is due to the haswell processor 4gen chip that improve it further.

The Core i5 just got a silent upgrade from Microsoft. Make me more want to wait for it's launch in SG than getting Pro 1.

The specs are different one is running on gen 3 and the other running on gen 4 processor... that is what makes a big different in processing capabilities and battery efficiency.

A breakdown for you... can be seen here pcmag
ic, thanks! Yup pro 2 is definitely better and faster. But I wonder hows the price, because can get pro now at 700 plus(Student price) not sure whether when pro 2 come out still have stocks anot.

Am only intending to do light surfing and for studying though since i already have a desktop at home.

i got 2 x power adapter.



pardon the lousy quality photo. taken using surface's camera.

i updated to 8.1 already. didn't check the battery life when on 8. paiseh.

i believe the comparison should be available online.

the amount of stuff i got at $818 outweighs the battery life. hahahaha

Thats the tactic microsoft SG is employing i guess. Delay until consumers give in and help clear their older stock. Or purchase from competitors instead.
