    I was looking at this over the weekend. The pen slot looks like a cool idea, but if you read the reviews they say it's kinda hideous. I can't find the review now, but it was definitely for this case.

    I didn't know they made a USB hub with Ethernet. Cool!
    I have been using this since Nov-2013 on my SP2 (and will use it for SP3 later this week :-). It has been perfect - never had any issues:
    Amazon.com: Satechi 3-Port Portable USB 3.0 Hub and Ethernet LAN Network Adapter for Windows, Mac, and Linux: Electronics

    Also, I am using this one with great success (mini displayport to vga as I need to connect to the office projector)
    Amazon.com: Cable Matters Gold Plated Mini DisplayPort (Thunderboltâ„¢ Port Compatible) to VGA Male to Female Adapter in Black: Computers & Accessories

    Finally, I have gambled with an Indiegogo campaign - airtame - wireless screen-mirroring: expensive and significant delays but we will see if it delivers; in the meantime, Microsoft might release something similar; there were some rumors in the past). Either ways, this kind of a device will be a must-have as well (Chromecast is too limited).

    Regarding sleeves, no good ones yet. I spoke to Snugg (just love their sleeve for my SP2) but sadly they have not made any plans as yet for the SP3 sleeve.

    another sleeve I found on Amazon....might be ok

    Amazon.com: Kinmac 12 Inch Black Leather Laptop Sleeve for 12.1 Inch and 12.5 Inch Widescreen Dell / Hp /Lenovo/sony/toshiba/ausa Laptop Bag Acer/samsun/thinkpad Laptop Case: Computers & Accessories

    dimensions of the above case: 12.59 x 9.25 x 0.78 in
    dimensions of SP3 with type cover: 11.60 x 8.54 x 0.55 in

    not a snug fit, but I hope it will not bounce around - planning to take a chance and get this....

    I got this as a temp until i could find a descent bag for it. It's from target for 29.
    It's got a sign that resemble an S for surface i guess . The inside feels very good and its got a lip for the zipper so it should keep the devise from scratching. now I'm just waiting for the surface to come, I'll let you guys know how it fits

    Yeah, I'm using an etsy sleeve made out of cork. The etsy seller's name is corkor. It's awesome. I'm still waiting to get my Freedom Case from kickstarter... I'm sure I'm gonna have the Surface Pro 3 before I receive my Freedom Case.... I wonder if they'll make one for the SP3.
    But...but the SP3 doesn't need a Freedom Case. Looks like it would be good for SP or SP2.

    I agree from the perspective of the function of the Freedom Case being to give you multiple viewing angles, and that you don't need that for the SP3, but I like the style of it from a protective cover perspective, and would like to see something similar for the SP3, albeit without the different angles, but instead folding back to the back of the SP3, and folding with the kickstand.

    I was looking at this as well. How do you like the feel and build quality of it? Which color did you get? Thanks.

    Thanks. From Corkor's site, she said the padding is 5mm. Do you think it is thick enough and hard enough to protect Surface when it is inside it?

    I am sure it will stop it from getting scratched up - what are you looking for the case to do? protect against a drop? I am not sure this will guarantee that, but for me I just got the case to keep it free of scratches and minor dings when I am not using it.

    The cork in this case is more 'material' like as opposed to rigid, if that's what you're asking. :)

    I'm not looking for against drop. Looking for minor dings and scratches. How long did it take to ship?

    That cork case is beautiful. Just ordered one for myself! Unfortunately it takes 5-15 days to ship to the States.

    I'll just be rockin' it with the red type cover...don't want to hide it. I have a messenger bag for laptops that I use to transport my stuff between work and home and when travelling.

    Nice looking case. Unfortunately you won't be able to utilize the awesome kickstand of the Pro 3.

    The other issue is this case covers a lot of the bezel which will make some gestures complicated. I know this from experience with my S2 unfortunately. I honestly think a sleeve is the best way to go for this gem.

    Planning to pick one up tomorrow myself at either BB or MSFT store. It will be my first foray into the Pro line and for me the thin form factor and quiet fan were the tipping point.

    Also, there isn't a good shot of the top in the images, but it looks to me like there might be some covering of the vent openings. I wouldn't want to cover them at all.

    I hope as time passes there will be more folio style case for the SP3, which I just got mine today UPS dropped it off ordered from Microsoft online store.
    I am one who uses the KB very little, so I am hopping for something like the apple iPad air cover, just covers the screen and attached by magnets, or like what like Lenovo has for the Think Pads. I am surprised Microsoft doesn't male something like this not everyone is going to purchase there type cover

    Just make sure that whatever you get doesn't cover the vents while in use.

    personally I love the Snugg sleeve that I currently use for the SP2. Have ordered a temp sleeve until I find a better one and I think I may have just found it...this one will be in stock on 22-July on Amazon
