If say you travel and take videos of your trip, your 64gb card will fill up fast. SP4 is very portable so I view it as portable storage with power to view, edit videos even.
I'm going to japan for 5 to 6 months. So I assume the surface pro 4 camera is going to be good? Better than my note 4

Of course you can, but why need to buy more microSD cards that I use only when I travel when I need a laptop/tablet anyway and can just bring the SP4 along..that's my thinking la, but to each his own.

I wont use the SP4 camera for recording trips, will be using a gopro mostly.

i think the min shld be i5 .. 4gb or 8 gb ram, will dep on indv user.

if want to get m core, might as well get the SP3.
considering bang for buck, and the price reduction for the SP3, i dont think there will be significant performance over the m core for SP4.

my 2 cents worth la.

This has been discussed numerous times already. Student discount only available online. So long you have school email with .edu shouldn't be a problem

Challenger now offers SP pro 3 i5 256gb for $1578.

I also understand that SP3 is 4th gen cpu while SP4 is 6th gen. Is there really a big difference?

Was thinking of getting SP3 with new SP4 type cover to save the $400. Anyone explore that option or have any advice on that?

Yeap. The i7 has edram and iris pro graphics which makes it a very interesting chocie as opposed to SP3 era i7. Theres actually a more noticable performance incr4ease from i5 (in terms of graphical horsepower)

6th Gen definitely faster than 4th gen bah? but gt review said,I think is fstoppers, mbp still faster cos is quad core vs dual core...
fug that stupid fstopper **** head. I knew it when i read that article. Hes comparing the 15" MBP which houses a HQ sku of the i7. Thats almost the same as those i7 used in gaming laptops. The Surface carries a U series processor. its only a 15W processor. of course slower in terms of processing.

Challenger now offers SP pro 3 i5 256gb for $1578.

I also understand that SP3 is 4th gen cpu while SP4 is 6th gen. Is there really a big difference?

You'll bne missing out on the better cooling. accroding to tests done by Anandtech this helps with sustained performance. Also GPU of skylake is supposedly better. Oh and you lose out on PCIE NVMe Storage of the SP4

Then also got screen size smaller, abit heavier, a bit thicker. But honestly most important is that cooling.


Just a question. If I install a game like dota 2/diablo 3 on sd card. Is it possible to run?
Technically possible but might load super slow i could play civ but....it took forever to load on my asus t100

I'm going to japan for 5 to 6 months. So I assume the surface pro 4 camera is going to be good? Better than my note 4
Please... don't.
