    Been using my 15" for a month or so. Screen sucks: pale and dim, build quailty sucks, wifi issue sucks. I've actually ended up upgrading wifi card on mine because it came with 1x1 by accident. Ended up breaking something when I removed the case, so now it's not flush. Just for the screen alone I wouldn't recommend it.

    Does this system have TPM? I forgot to check.

    Any actual user comparisons to Surface Pro 3?

    No TPM was a deal breaker for me.

    Virtual Security Cards and Bitlocker

    FYI... I added a TPM module to my HP MicroServer G8 for $5. So it's not too expensive to have on systems.

    I remember this happening way back since HP/ Compaq days circa 2001/2003 on several Pavilion and NC series machines and probably a simple flaw in device drivers that they havent fixed. Way to get around, is disable Wireless/WiFi/ BT before sleep, enable when resume (Thats what I used to do and show a friend to do).

    Nice. Now all we need and hope is that we could Upgrade the RAM/ Memory to 16 Gb or above when we need/ want.

    Is this a stellar deal?

    I understand Bitlocker - What are VSC's and what would this achieve / enable for you?

    VSC allows me to securely store my certs for authentication, identification and code signing. Otherwise I have to spend money on an expensive USB dongle from RSA/YubiKey/Aladdin with accompanying infrastructure.

    My coworker has the 13.3 and I have a SP3. The 13.3 feels like it's double the weight and it's thicker. I like the keyboard on the 13.3 because it can do the wireless trick.
