    Didn't take me long to find it - its on page 1 of 3684 search results when i type in "Surface 3 case". It could be my location and the way ebay "customise" the search -> I live in Asia and I frequently order stuff from China/Hong Kong on ebay, so I tend to see stuff from there in my search and not from US/Europe or elsewhere.

    Twas the night before Surface and all through the house
    Wondering if "3" will be the right one for me
    I now have a 'cough' in anticipation of arrival
    Watch the UPS guy be late or run into a guardrail
    When it finally does arrive and is placed in my hand
    It will be time to wonder what's next from TabletPC land
    Surface Pro 4 or Windows 10
    It's time to stop I can't do this again
    If it isn't the one I'll return it right quick
    And be back to waiting for the next latest trick

    From what I've read and tested. I think the S3 will be your new buddy.

    I've had trouble going back to my AVN8

    I'll be sure to run my surface 3 over when the surface 4 is out. :)

    Anybody who receive s3, please try emulator game : desmumme (nds emu) and pcsx2 (ps2 emu). Now i use hp pavilion x2 10 (cpu z3745, 2G ram) and both 2 emu can not run smooth. If it can run better than my HP, i will change to s3.
    I think desmume can run smooth on s3. For pcsx2, this is a little hope.
    Thank.

    Sorry. I really can't think of the proper term. I believe the proper term would be related to "planned obsolescence".

    For the S3 pen? Maybe they'll change their minds later on. I have a good feeling they're in for the long run (may pass a decade) and the S line (non Pro) not having a pen right now, might not be too much but like you say, it's some sort of an experiment for MS and perhaps moreso for their marketing team. They may have just to come into the conclusion that this one's the release they'll try something w/o the Pen.

    Anyway...

    ...

    So, who should get the Surface 3? It's perfect for business users who want top-notch pen support. It's also a pretty good pick if you want the most portable Microsoft Office machine around. Plus, it doubles as a very good entertainment hub for after-work hours, or for use on an airplane.

    ...

    On the other hand, if you're looking for a superportable, affordable hybrid with great pen support, the Surface 3 is hard to beat.

    I spoke to my MS store that is an hour away and they told me anyone who buys the Surface 3 in store will get the pen for free. Does best buy have an delals?

    For those complaining about the absence of the pen and keyboard, the way I see it, it's just to keep the price down so you can get in at a low point. These aren't cheap, but IMHO you get what you pay for. I'm glad it's this way. Of course, I already own the pen. If I didn't, I would be complaining? Hard to tell. But the last thing I would want would be them cutting corners. I'm more than willing to pay the premium. Cuz, what you get is indeed premium.
