    Sounds like they crippled it to keep from it being too similar to the Pro.

    The Thinkpad is 16:10. The S3 pen is no better than the SP3. In fact, Shogmaster has demonstrated that it might underperform the SP3 a bit due to the Atom's performance.

    The S3 dock charges to full in a couple of hours.

    I think what Bronsky means is the ThinkPad Tablet 10 gen 2 and not ThinkPad Tablet 2. Just for clarification. The ThinkPad Tablet 2 is clover trail 16:9. ThinkPad Tablet 10 gen 2 is cherry trail 16:10.

    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.
