    Can't wait to save up and get a sp3, however I have a question about drawing apps.

    I noticed that video reviews seems to be using photoshop application, which is on a pricey side. I always found that gimp does the job ok, Will gimp work with this new type of pen for drawing (inc pressure sensitivity) or is there another decent drawing photoshop-like apps would do the job?

    what about blender? inkscape?

    Thanks

    This guy is keeping an updated list of what's able to be run on an SP3 and what can't, along with other issues...

    Clicking on that link and everything else on that site produces nothing but a BIG WHITE page with some amazon links at the bottom. Anyone else not seeing anything on that site?

    Hmmm I just clicked on it using an old IE and it works fine. Definitely, not the most well designed site but functional. Regardless, here is the text from the site:

    Surface Pro 3: What Runs, What Doesn't
    .This feature is incorrectly titled. I've kept the "What runs, what doesn't" label for consistency's sake, but the reality is that all of the software listed here "runs." With the one exception so far of 3D-Coat's OpenGL version, which exhibited display issues, the only performance issue I keep encountering is pen pressure sensitivity.

    The results below are from very preliminary testing. Microsoft and N-Trig teams are hard at work trying to improve results for Wintab programs. Look for this list to change frequently between now and the Surface Pro 3 launch.

    Adobe

    •Illustrator CC 17.1.0 x64 - runs (significant performance issues)

    •After Effects 12.2.1.5 - runs

    Thanks for the copy/paste. Much appreciated. I tried loading the page on Chrome and Firefox and still get the same 'WHITE PAGE'. Oh well......
