I started using surface 3 for pdf annotation. I found that it is really slow in loading the pages when i scroll. Also i havw to wait for 2 secs jus to erase or undo a writing using drawboard.

Anyone else facing same issue?

Im using 4gb version

Missed the promo on Microsoft store with free cover & pen for Surface 3.

Does anyone think that they have this promo again in future?

Contemplating to get surface 3 or the surface pro 4 (m3 version), any recommendations? (*Basically to replace my current laptop which I just use for editing of documents, surfing web, playing games (not graphic intensive games), streaming/watching videos and listening to music on itunes etc)

then it would depends on your comfortable screen size.

S3 is 10"
SP4 is 12"

Currently SP3 is giving free keyboard when purchased direct from MS Store. Buying the keyboard is approx 200 if getting separately. The SP3 however need to purchase the pen as its not included.

I guess S3 should be enough as of now, purchasing the pen is definitely much cheaper than having to buy the keyboard :D Will just go ahead with the order of S3, by the way, any idea how long is the delivery from microsoft store? Thanks for your help :D

They will ship it from china, it will take about 1 week depending on the schedule. I guess it may take longer for this CNY period.

IIRC, you can check out challenger and ask them to match the same deal, I saw them having the same $70 off S3 when MS was having the promo.

I guess those who bought S3 last few weeks would be damn pissed now.

Yeah, I nearly bought it when the price went down to 828 last month, but without keyboard, it seems useless to me (*the keyboard is too expensive for me), but since now it came with the keyboard, its the most suitable time to buy. :D
