For those deciding between the various CPU....
Please note on the difference in GPU as well.

"Surface Pro 4:

6th Gen 2.2-GHz Intel Core i7-6650U processor with Intel Iris graphics 540
6th Gen 2.4-GHz Intel Core i5-6300U processor with Intel HD graphics 520
6th Gen 900-MHz Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor with Intel HD graphics 515"

the i7 seems to have a lower base frequency than the i5?

Was yours a Local or overseas set?

Got lots of working files
sometimes need to pull out documents from a few years ago
... wanna sync with my pc la
you should backup your files constantly over a few medias if it is important as there no easy way to retrieve data if the ssd die on you. since surface is not easily repaired (check out the crack down of sp3 on youtube), they just replace a new one unless it is software issue which they can fix.

Mine is a local set. MS SP3 i7 8GB RAM and 256 SSD. I fiins 8GB is enough for daiy use and 256 GB SSD just to store the Windows O/S and other programs. Better to work your data files off an external SSD.

Want to sell and get a DELL XPS-15 soon

yes lower base frequency but higher turbo frequency which is a good thing to reduce power consumption while on minimum load. btw, the U series are all dual core hyperthreaded, the higher end H 45w tdp are 4 cores tho but they are normally used on performance laptop where size and weight arent the priority

To be honest, I was expecting a red type cover this launch. Usually surface launch got limited quantity red type cover.

Price after 18 October still the same. The 'promotional price' mentioned by HWZ is a gimmick
