Dear All,

 

Kindly I need your Sincere advice

I've decided to buy Surface Pro 3 (Highest available Spec.)
but Just I read few warning

 

So to conclude,

Could you advice me based on your (practical using of Surface Pro 3)..

 

- Is it applicable to use it for Large Excel files (could reach 300 MB)?
- Is it applicable to use it for several software applications that running based on SQL?

- Do you feel comfortable to use Surface Pro 3 for more than 8 Hours Per day

(Office, home, outside, etc)

- Is Type Cover flexible for typing?

- Is it enough to have only 1 USB?

 

Looking your Sincere advice

Based on your questions the surface pro would suffice, is it going to perform as well as a workstation with 16gb of ram and triple monitor setup? No. In my experience anything related to office , light photos hop work , light cs premiere, light cad sql and it works fine. You can get a powered USB hub to help out

I'd also add that if you plan to do a lot of typing, you may want to get a better keyboard. Pretty much any bluetooth keyboard will provide a better typing experience than the type cover. And the docking station is a nice addition if you need to attach your SP3 to a monitor. It adds 3 USB 3.0 ports and 2 USB 2.0 along with Ethernet.

Other inquiries please:
1) is it all come with pen

or pen is additional accessory like Type cover

Also is all Surface pro 3 Pen could edit PDF, Office staff or there's special Pen for that purpose

 

2) is Type cover (TouchPad has 2 buttons to act as Right/ Left click) or they use different technique

Friends,

 

I'm still confused,

based on below snapshot from Microsoft website, there'2 different Pen Types

 

My Question: could I use the left side Pen (Silver one) that come by default with Surface Pro 3 to Edit PDF, PPT, etc

or I've to buy the Right side (Black one) for that purpose

 

Highly appreciate your support

Thanks

The one on the right is the pen for the original Surface Pro 1 and 2. It is a Wacom tablet pc pen and is not compatible with the Surface Pro 3, which has an N-Trig digitizer.

The Pro Dock also opens up a lot of the options and also gives you Dual Monitor potential. I just the I5 8GB 256GB version as a daily driver and never looked back.
