    Yep...I'll actually be near a store and can't wait to try it out. Not going to pre-order though. Will wait until it is actually available and decide then.

    Same. What are the incentives?? Since there are none, there's no point in preordering.

    Well, there is a chance of it selling out or limited availability of the model you want. So the incentive would be to actually get one for sure.

    I suppose. But the SP3 is not a huge priority for me. As long as I get it before college, which starts late August.

    I saved 130 as well. But I imagine you don't have to preorder to get the 10% student discount. That discount applies to almost everything at the Microsoft store. But that discount is a good reason to buy a surface from Microsoft store.

    What is this EDU website you speak of? May you send me a link? I did something on the MS Store website (selecting the high school and role) and that took me to a "Save 10% on the new Surface Pro 3" page. But when I went to checkout, there was no discount.

    Interesting. I just did my college edu. And got 10% off. I didn't use any promo code. Maybe it has to do with college vs high school?

    Do you have to link your .edu email to your Microsoft account?

    The promo code was for an additional $100 off but is now dead because people were ordering the SP3 for as little as $607 after tax.

    The 10% off is linked to your school, you select your school and get 10% off everything.

    I pre-ordered mine at 12:02 EST on May 21. I was able to get both the 10% student discount and the extra $100 off with the GRADUATION code. So, I got the i5 128GB model for $800 (normally $1000). As I understand it, they don't let you do both discounts anymore.

    So, the advantage of acting fast to pre-order was a $200 discount that is no longer available. And if it turns out I don't like it, it's easy enough to return it (or cancel my pre-order).

    I tried it last night (although I didn't actually order yet)...10% off everything just by entering the school info. My only issue was that the red type cover was not offered on their education site. WTF?

    Microsoft Store - EDU Portal

    It's right on the top part of the page...once you do that (and check the box stating you are a student, teacher, adminstrator, etc.), it will let you go to specific products to see pricing.

    Hey...the red keyboard is on there now...
