Surface Pro 3 for Designers

over 8 years ago from , Nowhere

Hi All, hoping some of you could give me some input on the Surface Pro 3. I need a device to take with me to clients and do work when I'm away from my desk. I currently use an iPad for most of my meetings and coffee shop work but this is rather limiting when it comes to actually creating content and designs so I'd like to move to something with a full operating system and Photoshop/Sketch/Editing programs. Does anyone have a Surface Pro 3 and have any advice or warnings? It seems like the best of all the various worlds, tablet/laptop etc. Alternatively does anyone own another brand of portable that they absolutely love and would recommend?

    I have one, but if I’m being honest, I haven't used it enough to form a strong opinion. But, it does run full Photoshop and Illustrator, and performance is definitely good for light tasks.

    Do you normally use Windows? I think that’s going to be the biggest barrier.

      I run a range of Macs and a few PCs so the operating system isn't going to make or break the decision. Thanks for the input :-)
