M3 and 4gb of ram. Cold from me I'm afraid, that spec won't last long.

I have this exact model and it works flawlessly. No delays, quick boot, 4 GB ram is fine everyday use, including multiple spreadsheet and chrome tabs.

4gb is small for this price point in my view...

No worries. It's hardly a terrible spec, but if you're spending 700 quid you'll want something that will last and this would be as slow as a turtle in a years time.

morbid curiosity, but how does this stack up versus the original i5 surface pro, upgrade probably overdue but doubt this even is one...?

I though the m3 line of these had a lot of problems?

That spec has been fine for years and there's nothing being touted that would change that.

The type of programs that need 8GB of RAM are games which you wouldn't even run on an i7 iGPU or heavy media encoding which is a niche userbase.

For Office, Netflix, Chrome and other general day to day uses an i3 and 4GB of RAM is more than sufficient.

I use firefox and have loads of tab open so that chews up allot of RAM...hence 4gb is not really enough

I swapped out my i7, 128GB 8GB Dell for an M3, 128GB 8Gb Asus Zenbook because of weight and screen quality. Speen and day to day prefer the M3. Works awesome.

Been this price for the last couple of weeks, same price at Argos.

take out a warranty as MS hardware has a 25% failure rate.

4Gb is more than enough, to run 20 tabs in firefox.

This is exactly the whole problem with this product. You can easily build a brilliant pc for the same price. I used a thousand pound Mac daily for three years and it was battered by the end of those three years of constant daily use and being carried in a decent laptop bag. Imagine what this would do and imagine the resale value. Love that Microsoft have designed the surface, brilliant piece of kit for those that don’t count the coins but for the rest of us it’s still too much.
