Now they no longer have educational pricing like for the Surface RT in the past right?

That time one set of Surface RT only $250++

I hope these are the new ones since so called first batch were first released in the US.
I do hope so that is the case, but the epic history of tablet's danger of the first batch would always fear me.

I don't think they have released a power cover for SP3 so if you get the old power cover it will not fully cover the screen area as the dimensions are different.

His point was from the casual user perspective so it's invalid for me.
I love the Surface Pro 3 because the equivalent Wacom Cintiq Companion costs $1500+ more.

I also love the fact that I'm going to use this in conjunction with Lightroom so I can import my photos from my DSLR on the go and edit on the go. (Fantastic display)

I also love the fact this can be used as a casual tablet with excellent browsing experience as I don't really use apps on my tablet. I'm now using the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4. Great tablet, but not breathtaking. Lousy hardware quality.

I also am going to use this to play the upcoming Sims 4 when it comes out. No iPad or Galaxy Tab series will do that.

This is also going to be my secondary laptop with the MacBook Pro Retina 15 as my primary.

Microsoft's Office suite isn't going to be the reason I buy this tablet.
I prefer Apple's productivity suite.

All these points is why I decided to buy a Surface Pro 3.

Yes, is around the same price. Do not forget you get a bigger storage space too.

Bigger but 10x slower storage. So your Core i7 will behave like an Atom.
