    My patience ran out. A Surface 3 with keyboard (dark blue) is on its way to me, courtesy of eBay.
    Not sure about the dock but I'll definitely be getting a pen; debating whether I get the pen on eBay or just drive to MS store.

    So far, I've had good luck with my Surface 3. It appears as hardy now as it did when I first got it over a year ago. I did replace the charger & charging cable because I got tired of the stock one sometimes not connecting properly. The 3rd party replacement connects every time and actually charges a little faster than the stock one - that's not scientific observation but merely my impression from using both. Good luck!

    Good choice. 4GB/128GB?

    Does the dock work outside the US? i.e. Is the power supply 100-240v?

    Yep. Just arrived this morning. Trying to set it up while I work. Very hard not to be distracted by the shiny new toy
    I wonder how long until MS pushes the Creators Update to Surface 3.

    Well, I'm a few hours into ownership and already annoyed because it seems my Surface will not install the latest (9/27/16) firmware update. I went through the whole update>reset>install process for several iterations to get to this point, but the 9/27/16 firmware never appeared in my update history. The latest listed firmware was 8/8/16.
    I went to the Surface 3 WiFi Update page (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49040) and downloaded everything except the Win8...zip and Win8...msi files.
    Per the directions on the Microsoft Surface Update page, I found the Win10_161250.msi file in my downloads, pressed right-click>Install. It started the Surface Platform Installer Setup Wizard, which I accepted and finished. Then it said to restart for changes to take effect. I restarted, check my update history and still no 9/27/16 firmware update.
    I must be missing something.

    I had the same problem, what I did was do a clean install of Windows 10 from scratch off a USB stick.
