That's the exact model I have and I love it! I also have the dock which makes for easier connect/disconnect from external peripherals and easier charging.

I wouldn't say flimsy exactly, just shallow and hard to type on. The keyboard does flex though, but it's not too bad

^Is that the "type cover" keyboard that's basically a super-thin touch-based keyboard, or the actual keyboard cover with physical keys?

Yea I got it but still need to get a keyboard for it... (I thought it came with the cover keyboard that is advertised in the commercials ..


Do you recommend the Microsoft Surface keyboard or should I look another route for a Bluetooth key board???


Also Docking station is on its way




Other than it being a Tablet right now, this thing is awesome..... Just cant wait to get my keyboard

I don't have any problems with the type cover but I also never try to type with the thing in my lap. There is no where I would go that I would ever need to try and type with the SP3 on my lap.

I heard they're good. Still not sold on the whole tablet with a keyboard thing though. Useful for some people though I'm sure.
