    Is it quick enough to use? I've never really looked into the regular surface 3, only the Pro's

    4GB ram.

    Like i said,

    the Atom processor is still the only thing that is off-putting about the surface 3. I know that they used to be aweful processors but then again they might have gotten a lot better since the last time i used them.

    I might invest in a surface 3

    Atom processors have come a long way. And with atom you don't deal with throttling like the Celeron M.


    The slower ssd in the Surafce matters more.

    Ah well in that case its a great buy! I didnt realise how much the atom processors have progressed but if they're now worth something then i might have to invest in the Surface 3 rather than the pro models.

    Questions have been answered!

    the non pro models are RT... RT models are basically paperweights

    No... they changed that long time. Surface 3 is full windows. I would never have bought it if it was RT.
