It's interesting to me that there are crap-tons of people for whom 2GB RAM is probably still plenty and there are others for which 16GB isn't enough. There doesn't seem to be an in-between point.Surface Pro 3 with twice the RAM, more ports and a slightly larger screen. I agree with Merc that it's probably quite nice. However, at 2500$ for the 16GB RAM model, I'm not sure it's such a good deal. IIRC, the Surface Pro 3 with similar specifications, but half the RAM, cost 2000$. 500$ for 8GB of RAM seems excessive.
