    I was really excited about finally getting a fanless surface pro. What an anti-climax. But just now I saw on microsoft.com that there is a difference in weight between the M3 version (766 g) and the i5 or i7 (786 g). It seems there wont even be an i3 version. What do you think this weight difference can mean? 20 g is not much, it's hard to imagine it could be the removal of the fan. Although the M3 shouldn't need active cooling right?

    I'm guessing a slightly smaller, lighter momboard for an m3.

    There's quite a bit of copper in the cooling system too...

    Yeah I saw the article about the hybrid solution. But I'm guessing the weight difference is because the m3 doesn't have the hybrid solution, only regular fan cooling. It's too bad, but on the other hand the lenovo miix 700 looks like a decent alternative. Would've loved that high res screen though. But a portable device with a fan is not welcome in my house.

    Ifixit confirms the m3 indeed is fanless, woo-hoo!
