I stumbled upon this article on zdnet a little while ago How Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 marketing push backfired This kind of sums up what I've been seeing from those people who were lucky enough to get an SP3 - presumably to write glowing reviews. Some did, others felt that the SP3 was a decent laptop replacement and a mediocre tablet. Microsoft wanted people to compare it directly to a MBA and they did and many saw that it came up lacking. That's where MS I think messed up a bit. That story had a link for The Ultimate Surface Pro 3 Reviews Roundup All in all, there was a lot of positive remarks but some telling negatives. I've been on the for this for so long but given the cost, I'm hesitant to spend money. I think its a great product but I'm less convinced it can be a laptop replacement for some (many) people unless you full flesh out what it can do very well and its short comings.
