You are an idiot. Different machines, different purposes. MS said the Pro 3 was to replace a standard Ultrabook, not a discrete laptop (which this is).Microsoft said Surface Pro 3 can replace your laptop so it is ok to compare it to this product therefore it is better than Surface Pro 3 by mile and i know (it is by a mile but don't care). I wish you people read sometimes what you write...claiming what MS claims and than contradicting yourself just like that flop company does saying something like...but they are totally different products.
I'll take a surface pro 3 over this anyday. Surface has a IPS WQHD panel with touch and digitizer, and weighs under 2 lbs with 9 hours battery life. This gaming laptop weighs 5 pounds, has a ugly TN panel, and a entry level dedicated gpu and 3 hours of battery life.
