Re: Wait for Surface Pro 3
Agreed, Charlie. The price difference between the Pro 2 and Pro 3 isn't that big, and the Pro 3 is better in almost every way. I guess the Pro 2's smaller laptop footprint might appeal to some people-- but the Pro 3 is lighter; easier to hold as a tablet; thinner; more flexible as a laptop, with better battery life, a better kickstand, and a better screen; etc.
That said, Microsoft will probably become more aggressive in its attempt to get rid of existing Surface Pro 2 inventory. I don't know if we'll see additional permanent price drops, at least not right away-- but I bet we'll see limited promotions with not only lower prices, but also included Type Covers. That's just a hunch, based on Microsoft's handling of some of the earlier models. But if the Pro 2 were to drop below $700, as the original Pro did, that might be more tempting.
