This is a great price on a solid tablet/PC. I ended up selling my Surface Pro 2 because I didn't have a use for it, but if you do have a use for it, then I would recommend getting one. They have a legit i5 in them and they scream when used as a tablet.

For gaming, the battery sucks, but it is great if you keep it plugged in. I was able to play Indie games at solid frames such as Oceanhorn, played Bioshock 1 at max settings at 60fps with some drops.

Battery life is not fantastic on Windows 10. Gaming lasts about 1-2 hours

Movies lasted me about 5 hours

browsing and other stuff was about 6-7 hours.

Also, the power cover you can get for this has issues with Windows 10 so if you plan on getting that, DO NOT upgrade to Windows 10.
Battery life on the pro 2 is very good. If you are having doubts, just return it. Saying the pro 2 gets at best half the battery life is you trying to justify your purchase.

I'd like to hear opinions on this vs the $350 4GB/128GB LTE Surface 3 deal I just purchased. Obviously the i5 kills the Atom in performance 3 but it probably gets half the battery life at best. This comes with a keyboard but is thicker and heavier. Anything I'm missing? Would you keep the 3 at $50 more and no keyboard?

Ive wanted one for soooo long at this price but now it seems so dated next to fanless core-M models getting much better battery life and half the weight

Also look at the Cube i7 Sylus and the HP 608 Pro. Every device in this segment has a major flaw IMHO at this time

The Pro 2 and the 3 get comparable battery life.

The biggest difference is the form factor. The display on the 3 is taller with a 2:3 aspect ratio.

The 3 charges conveniently but very slowly over micro usb instead of a proprietary charging connector.

Comments above confirm the 5 hour battery life for movies vs what I've read is about 10 hours on the 3. It might be worth it for the i5.

Good deal, but I can't deal with the near-impossible battery replacement of these.

Even Microsoft only advertises up 9 hours runtime for the surface 3. Of course that is under the most optimistic conditions. I think they claim up 8 hours for Pro 2.
Point is that you are not getting double the battery life on the Surface 3. Personally I would take the Pro 2. Haswell CPU is not too bad battery life and cpu power really trumps the Atom of the Surface 3.
