Saw Surface Pro 3 demo set at suntec Digital Style shop with a good pre-order offer. Get $100 accessories voucher that can be used on the type cover
Does this means they already have stock ?

hello, what i meant is recommendations for other notebook models since you said you can buy an ultra thin PC at lower prices. i don't need a touchscreen so the sp3 is a bit excessive for me - mainly using it as a word processor + watch movies. thanks!
Means you don't even need a powerful PC.
Try Asus Transformer T100.

nope still a pre-order with stock coming in at end August. Shared because the voucher is good since it can offset the keyboard purchase and people who are interested can try and feel the device.

think the newstead promo is similar to challenger. Both have to use POSB/DBS credit card to get the exclusive bag and voucher.

Only direct from Microsoft can get student discount.

hmmm.. dilemma

the t100 is too small for me, and i don't like how the keyboard is so flimsy. im looking for something with 12-13" screen. i typically have 10-20 broswer tabs open and anything from 5 to 20 pdf/word documents open for reference so I need something that can cope with that. thanks!

Did you pre-order only the Surface Pro 3 itself or together with the Pro cover?

So the voucher is only available for VALORE products and not microsoft product, is this across all challenger stores ? Or specific only. From what I think it should be the same across all the stores.

Toshiba has an ultrabook thats 1.1kg light with 13inch screen if i rmb correctly. Did you do any research prior to coming on the forums to ask?Might help if you tell us what you've considered

If you're looking for a notebook then this is the wrong forum section

How did the pen writing experience feel? That is my only reservation as I tried the Acer R7 pen writing (same Ntrig technology) and it was a bit inferior to the S pen on the Note 10.1.

I asked and they said it's across the stores. It's better to check at other outlets.

I doubt I'll be using the pen. FYI, I hardly use the pen in my Note 3

The Pro Cover product code is not available now so cannot take any pre-order. Have to wait till the day of collection of the SP3 then use the $100 to offset it lor
