    Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

    As the title indicates, I have the opportunity of getting either of the two for the same price. Both come with their respective keyboards and pens.

    I had the S3/2/64 before and apart from the occasional hiccup, it handled all I needed it to with aplomb. My activities include browsing the web, streaming Netflix, YouTube videos, the ocassional torrent and PDF reading.

    I have read the multitude of threads pertaining to the exact same question. While comparisons and tests are indicative (obviously) of the SP3 having an edge over the SP4, what I am more concerned about is the alleged fan noise in the former.

    What are your opinions ?

    I own both. I like my SP3 but the fan noise is a bit loud sometimes and the unit can run hot. What I love about the SP4 is it has better battery life, great camera for Windows Hello which works flawlessly for me every time, totally quiet and it just seems more responsive in general. I currently am in the fast ring for builds and have no issues.

    With your usage pattern the sp4 would be perfect and the fanless option is great. I think you'll be more then satisfied with that option.
