I knw the prices just not sure what accessories id need. I think the keyboard plus 64GB would already reach 1k.

Are u recomending the surface pro?

Can't really make a recommendation, as I don't know much about the devices other than the Surface. And yes, 64GB + keyboard will already be ~$1000.

Touch Cover - $80
Type Cover - $130
Touch Cover 2 - $120
Type Cover 2 - $130
Dock - $200
Power Cover - TBD

You probably wouldn't need anything other than a keyboard. Surface Pro already comes with the Stylus.

Edit: Surface Pro 2 does seem like a pretty nice device, though. I've been using a Surface Pro for work for a couple of months now and I like it.

Surface is rly nice with i5s/4gb ram but its $900+ so idk.

The ativ tab 3 is only $699. Comes with the keybored and syns with my samsung phone wirelessly. It runs the atom Z2760 and 2gb of ram

Honestly it would take me about 2 months more of saving (part time job) to pay the difference. Ive gone about 4 years without a windows computer and really want to get something decent. (My note 2 is great for media/browsing/email but i need a windows computer)
