hi folks can someone kindly tell me if sp3 has any display port for external display? example to a projector or tv?
It has the same mini-display ports as MacBooks. They should be widely (and cheaply) available - make sure you get the correct version:
- VGA: for most projectors
- HDMI: for most TVs
Check your displays to be sure.

Actually, does anyone know which shop sells Miracast devices with VGA/HDMI output?

If one of your requirement is a 'laptop' replacement, then dont bother with the ipad. buy alrdy sure regret.

as for the price, think of it as u are buying both a tablet and a laptop to justify the cost. also use the student discount to get abt 150 bucks off.

Microsoft has confirmed that its working on Surface 4. Killing some rumours that Surface line has no future. Was very close to buying S3 but will hold for now.

Having tried it out, it's the perfect replacement for both my Thinkpad and iPad. Its a pain carrying both around while travelling. One for work and other for entertainment. Surface will be the one device to rule them all!! I am sure people will realise that. Even I wasn't sure till I tried one.

Really depends on your own use-case:
Surface Pro 3 = professional tablet: only choice if you need
- for meeting/ lecture notes
- for Photoshop/ CAD
- for on-site use with powerful windows apps
- if you value flexibility: you want to scale up to desktop/laptop by day and scale down to light entertainment by night, with all your files/media in one place

iPad =
- light work
- heavy entertainment + play

Some other stats to help you:
1) Price
iPad air 128gb = $1,108
Surface Pro 3
i5, 8 GB, 128GB = SG$1,348.00 (lightest, thinnest core device for only $200 more!!?!)
i3, 4GB, 64GB = SG$1108

2) Resolution
Both retina screen.
SP3 has TWO 5 megapixel camera but iPad only has ONE (other is a 1.2 megapixels camera?!).

3) Battery life
iPad: 10hrs
SP3: 8 hrs

4) SP3 tablet is only 17.6% thicker than iPad Air*
*with keyboard for both, probably the same or SP3 will be thinner.

Agreed! My finger is on the trigger to buy but Broadwell chip (which the SF3 is really designed for) is delayed until middle of next year. If I wait, it'll be excruciating!

Only comforting thought is that SP will really sing with the new chip! LOL

Thanks you all for the feedback, me too will choose sp3 over ipad air if i really were to go ahead and buy 1.

Whats the student promo code? This code is to be keyed in on the microsoft sp3 checkout webpage right..

Another thing is the external keyboard cover must buy separately zzz
