Having had a 24 hours to dive in and review the specs with regards to Surface Pro 3. I'm out. Yep, I waited all this time and it looked like it was the dream hybrid that I had longed for. Everything was there. Except one crucial thing and that's the pen. I absolutely can't believe that MS would dump Wacom technology for the N-Trig. As an artist, everything starts and ends with the pen. It went from 1024 pressure sensitivity levels for the Wacom to a WHOPPING 256 levels for the N-Trig. This is just mind boggling that someone at MS thought this was okay. The ONLY reason why Surface Pro 2 had any kind of "foothold" in the market place was because of the early adopters from the Art World and it came down to Wacom. Unless there is announcement from MS that the SP3 will allow Wacom pens to be used with the device, I'm just gonna have to look elsewhere. I will however head to the MS Store and check the SP3 out for myself and see what can and can't be done with it. But I certainly won't be buying it anytime soon. What a shame. Disgusted is more like it. F*CK!
