Should this be cold. It's a good price with the type cover, right?

The 4GB config really shouldn't exist in the Pro lineup imo.

i agree very good price for what it i dont understand why its cold?

4GB depends what your using it for generally most applications dont use more than 4GB anyway so that they conform with 32bit operating systems aswell less production cost. So in general your device will perform fine with mot applications and under a fairly decent load unless your planning on using at as video editing machine and 3d rendering, in which case why are you even buying considering this?

As a deal it's hot and gets a hot vote from me. I think the cold votes are a protest against the product or MS. both I understand!

The Surface Pro range is a 64-bit setup.

Agreed though on the 4GB comment. For everyday users, 4GB will be fine.

In addition, I wouldn't recommend making a new account if you already have one.

In a time where Chrome can routinely eat up 1GB of RAM I don't think it's unreasonable to expect the Pro lineup to come with 8GB as standard.

By all means sell a 4GB version but there's nothing 'Pro' about it. Casual user yes.

​I've got SP3 Pro i5 4gb Ram which Run spreadsheets off without issue. Don't really need anything more than 4gb unless your running several intensive apps

4Gb is fine for most users, the SSD is fast enough for the virtual memory and there is a reason why 128Gb SSD devices hardly every come with 8Gb: page file and the hibernation file are much bigger so less free disk space.

Anyone think it will be even cheaper after they announce the sp5? Got to admit I'm tempted by the price.

edit: Just noticed code says it can't be used with sale items.

Again a user fails to read and comprehend my comment.
I said 4GB shouldn't be included in the Pro lineup.
Put it in the Surface family but start the Pro sku with 8GB. That's what I said. Not that the 4GB model shouldn't exist. It just makes little sense to have it in a Pro branded device imo.

I guess 'Pro' must mean most casual users and their nan's nowadays.

Not the first time I have seen this comment here although I am not sure disk thrashing is the brightest idea when it comes to an ssd's life span - just saying.

Just what does Pro mean, Andy Murray, he's a Pro, don't imagine he needs 8GB. It's a stupid idea to call anything Pro, it's meaningless in an object, premium or standard would work better and then it would make sense to call this a standard device, not premium.

I suspect a lot of the cold votes are as much to do with the previous prices, for instance I got my 8GB (< 4GB currently in use ;-) ), for £774 once I sold the Xbox that came with it, plus a Quidco discount on top. I'm not even sure that was the best deal at the time.

Tell Microsoft and Apple. They use it in their product names.

I'm just saying that 4GB is a base/entry spec is more suited to a non pro (premium) device such as the regular surface.
Hopefully they fix it in this year's refresh.

Sorry i was working on the presumption that everybody knew the specs and operating system architecture i should have been more clear that it is infact 64bit architecture and operating syste, and capable of running full X86 based programs... i was just making the opposing argument to this that yes its a powerful machine but will never use its 4GB max ram cache unless your doing very intensive stuff which makes me beg the question why you'd look at this device...

i agree with you for the most part on the 'pro' naming attribute. quite misleading and should come standard with 8GB ram and do think the prices are extremely high for what is on offer however im working on the basis that while yes this device is expensive and should be of higher spec standard, this deal isnt bad for such a great capable machine regardless of the lack luster of additional ram. but as aforementioned the majority if not eveybody who uses this should be buying to do things that would utilise such a huge ram buffer. unless there idiots...

To be honest focussing on the RAM is probably the wrong area, if anything, the problem with the base specification is the lack of storage, that's going to be a much bigger issue. As a professional programmer, regularly running visual studio sessions and SQL server, I still find 4GB would be adequate, but 8GB is much nicer, but I simply couldn't live in 128GB, I struggle with 256GB + 128GB microsd, enough that I'm looking for USB 3 SSD storage (anyone got recommendations?).

I'd like to see the next version up the levels of RAM and storage, but especially storage, without increasing the cost.

What if I told you that you don't have to use Google Chrome? Microsoft's own browsers are now actually good.

However, as a Surface Pro 3 owner (i5, 4GB, 128GB) I can say for sure that the device is more than fast enough even with Chrome running.
