Nevertheless, Samsung price for the Tab ProS is pointing towards Surface Pro 4 instead of Surface 3. I do hope that Surface 4 will have a similar form factor to Surface 3 yet with Core M chip inside (and up to 8GB of RAM).
Surface 3 is fast and good enough for some people daily driver however the bottleneck is with eMMC (flash memory) instead of the Atom x7 performance and RAM. Changing the Atom SOC (supports eMMC only) into Core M (supports SSD) will make it flies faster and will be sufficient for most people.

No room for mediocre , heavy hybrids then. And to pay extra for the keyboard.
I got Acer Aspire Switch 11 intel i5 version at approx USD 556. Even better deal than this.
