    Surface Pro 3: Best performance from tablet Ive ever seen

    I recently got a Surface Pro 3 (512 GB, Core i7) and it is awesome beyond words. First off, I wanted something fairly powerful, but not generate lots of heat as laptops tend to. Also, I wanted something quiet. The Surface covers all of that easily, and the screen is incredible too. Basically I got it for some mobile gaming (which it works great for!), and school (OneNote with the stylus really helps with notes). The games I mostly play on it which work very well are Minecraft, and Cube 2: Sauerbraten. Sometimes I like playing some of the WinRT games too.

    MS markets the SP3 as the tablet that can replace your laptop. They should include the typecover keyboard and then bill the SP3 as the laptop that can replace your tablet.

    I have the 128GB, Core i5 model and love it. My Nexus 7 Android tablet just sits and collects dust.
