why can't they include lte into surface pro?
But why buy an 11" or even 13" MBA when a 12-inch Ipad Pro with a keyboard can do 90% of what it can do (word processing, spreadsheets, database, planning etc) and is lighter, has a sharper screen, and comes with IOS tablet apps? If you need CPU-intensive OSX tasks, go for a 13" or 15" rMBP, which in its next Broadwell iteration will be lighter and thinner.
So if the Ipad Pro launches, the MBA's niche will be squeezed from both sides.
Microsoft doesn't build an ultrabook, so it is free to build an SP3 that competes well against ultrabooks. Apple doing the same with an Ipad Pro would be cannibalizing its own product. Makes no sense unless they are already committed to making the MBA irrelevant by making the rMBP thinner and lighter.
there r rumors mba may be killed cos mbpr is too similar. so ipad pro can come in. but these are all rumors.
for some strange reason, if true, the ipad pro is going to be a much more exciting product.
another possible rumor is a mac mini desktop without the need to buy monitor. the desktop has a built in projector. This is patented so no one can copy.
I don't think the SG price is too bad. I'm currently studying in the UK and the SP3 price here is a crazy SGD1348 for the i3 model. I'm looking forward to going home for the holidays and picking up an i5 model in SG for the same price.
By the way, I noticed today on Microsoft's SG store that all the Type Covers for SP3 are sold out.
1.7k is for the 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD version. You can get a perfectly functional machine for 1.4k.
The problem is the insane price jump - since when did RAM and SSD cost so much?
Worst thing is when batt is dead it can only stay at home like most Ultrabook with non replaceable batt... which is always the first component to wear off.
