Funny you should mention that, i was just looking into that tablet. Looks like a very interesting tablet, i love the size of the screen and it's fully customizable. I will wait and see what it will cost with the hardware that i would want, and i am curious about the reviews, i'm sure battery life would be horrible with a 18" screen. Things are getting very interesting in the gadget world.

I am looking into the new Surface 3 that was recently released. Similar specs to the original Surface Pro in that it has

Windows 8.1, 10.8 inches Display 1920x1280
Quad Core Intel® Atom(TM) x7-Z8700 processor (2MB Cache, 1.6GHz with Intel Burst(TM) technology up to 2.4GHz)
4 GB RAM Memory, 128 GB Flash Memory (93 GB Available)

It has USB 3 & microSD card for expansion.

Since it runs Win 8.1, I assume RDSS 2 wont be a problem. My only question is whether the processor will be okay.

Cheers

Tony

Not a problem at all, it has tons of processing power. Ted uses the Surface Pro 3 and can tell you in greater detail how RDSS functions on the Surface.

I just purchased the Asus Vivotab 8 with Windows 8.1 to run RDSS when i'm at the track, and it functions beautifully with a fraction of the processing power of the Surface 3.

For any Canadian looking at the Surface 3, The Source is giving away 10 Surface 3 tablets in a contest, you just have to enter your particulars here....

Thanks Hoof! I am pretty excited about getting this and not having to carry around my laptop which is not huge but still very bulky.

Buzz, that new 10" version of Surface 3 should work great - processor seems fine and the SSD will make disk retrievals sing. The HD screen res aspect of it will be somewhat lost on RDSS when viewed on the tablet, unless you use your magnifying lenses but if you plug it into a big monitor, it will work just like a Desktop/Notebook class computer.

My Surface Pro3 IS my main computer. It pretty much ran out of juice Saturday after a full afternoon at the track (5+ hours running RDSS and some web access), but your newer one may have some extra battery life enhancements.

Hoof11's smaller ASUS tablet looked pretty spiffy too (though it didn't pick any more winners than mine.. ). When you get yours, let us know how it works!

Ted

That's unusual about your battery, i had 60% of my battery left when i got home.

It must be that ClearType Full HD Display that is draining the battery, those HD displays can really chew up power.

Ted is right, you need a good pair of glasses to view these tablets, unless your a twenty something....

Beware

Was reading on the paceadvantage board today under the computer section that windows 10 may not be compatable with the surface pro. Check out the article before you buy.

I found no such article on PA, in the Computer section or elsewhere - perhaps a link? Anyway - it is inconceivable that a newly released Micrososft tablet would suddenly not work with their soon to be released Windows upgrade ...

Whatever that article meant - it meant something else. No reason not to get a Surface Pro.

That's pretty funny, i'm with Ted on that one, why would Microsoft release an OS that doesn't jive with their very own tablet, comical! That post must have come from an IOS fanboy.

From what i have read, Windows 10 will optimize the tablet experience more so than Windows 8 has. The future is all about mobile computing, and the Surface tablet(s) are asskickers.
