    Hi,

    I am looking into buying a surface pro. The lowest specced model of the surface pro 4 is around £700 and ships with a the following:

    - Intel Core m3-6Y30 Processor
    - 128 GB SSD
    - 4 GB RAM

    However, a refurbished surface pro 3 is around the same price and has the following:

    - Intel Core i7 Processor
    - 256 GB SSD
    - 8 GB RAM

    If it were you, which device would you be buying?

    Between those two, the Pro 3 definitely. I am a moderate-to-demanding user and I will make use of all 8 GB of RAM as well as the storage.

    But out of all other computers, I would go for something easier to repair because when the battery goes on either model, that's the end of the Pro as far as portability is concerned.
