For challenger collection starts from 19 Nov means it can be later...do you guys think it could be like 2 to 3 weeks later? Am travelling on 8 Dec and partly getting this to take it along otherwise would have to buy extra sd cards.

Edit:just pre-ordered at Challenger parkway i5 8gb 256gb

If you are worried, get from Microsoft Store SG, they usually ship on time, unless otherwise stated

No lah. Surface Pro 4 is thinner. Slightly thinner, but for this type of thickness, even slight improvement in thickness is highly appreciated. SP4 is 8.45mm. SP3 is 9.1mm.

Surface Book (when detached from the keyboard) is the thinnest though, at 7.7mm. Only because it does not have the thick USB slot.
Oh lol I thought he meant the Core M version compared to the i5/i7 Ver, my bad.

YEa surface book clipboard/tablet also only up to 3 hours of on time only :p

Thanks Joel.

I am not considering getting the S3. My only concern is with the m3 processor and from what I saw on the site I cited, the processor appears to be weaker. The S3 was used as a control to compare with.

I looked at the sites you provided and it shows otherwise. I think I will trust your sources more since it doesnt make any sense for a newer processor to be lousier. This is especially so since I have been reading that the m3 is better than the Atom.

I wonder whether have you seen this link before (http://www.cnet.com/products/microsoft-surface-pro-4/)

I quote a paragraph from that site:

"Besides Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors, the same as those found in most mainstream and premium laptops and hybrids, Microsoft is adding support for Intel's Core M processors. These low-power, highly efficient chips have turned up in only a handful of lightweight premium systems, such as the 12-inch Apple MacBook and Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro. In those systems, the Core M underperformed, at least compared to Intel's hype about the chip, so we'll have to wait until we can test the new version of this processor in the Surface Pro 4 to see if the Core M has improved enough."

Should I be concerned with such a review?
Firstly, I have to agree, the first gen Core M were pretty bad. But can be due to issues like insufficient cooling (macbook) and other stuff. Furthermore this is a newer generation, so things might change.

But frankly you shouldn't worry too much about it, especially if you're a light user. I had a Asus T100 running an Atom chip and i can say that its very usable. You just have to keep expectations in check with regards to the specs you have. But chrome (not like 30/20+ tabs) and simple word/office processing should be fine. Complex Excel Might be an issue. The Atom chips have come a long way in being usable imo.

Core M3-6Y30 is meant to replace the Core M-5Y10 and Core M-5Y31. It can't be slower than the older chips, can it?

Core M-5Y10 was used in the Asus T300 Chi 2-in-1 and the UX305 entry level ultrabook.

Core M-5Y71 was used in the 12 inch Macbook.


I am sure there are benchmark comparisons between the older Core M processors against the X7-8700 to show that Core M is much faster.

I'm using Surface 3 now and can say that it's performing ok for my usage pattern which is Office365 must of the time as chrome. Only time when I'm experiencing lag is when I have my budget software (ynab) opened which shows lag in scrolling. But then, I had 7 months worth of entries in the database, maybe that's a signal to tell me tinge to clean up my database.

I'm more keen with the surface book but even now still no status. Cox honestly that high performance you that allows me to run some heavy video editing and at the same time can detach is just wow

Btw I'm selling off my surface pro 3 i7/ 512gb if anyone is interested. Pm me.

5y10 performance is slightly slower than i3 4th gen
5y71 performance is slightly faster than i5 4th gen

i'd imagine the m3 to be on par or better than the i3 4th gen or slightly slower than the i3 skylake and m5 to be on par or better than the i5 4th gen and slightly slower than the i5 skylake. same goes to m7

Wow I order $2678, now the price is $2799. Meaning the price is really pre-order price, and after the pre-order period over, MS really adjusted the price upward.
