State of the art!

I am thoroughly impressed by this work of art. It is truly in a class by itself. It makes me wonder how a Macbook pro can cost almost double, when the Surface Pro clearly offers features that aren't available with the Mac. For thos who need to travel and take their "office" ith them, the Pro 3 appears to be the perfect choice.

  I look forward to getting one in the near future.

RF Antennas

I didn't see any mention of the RF Antennas.

I think RF antennas are one the modern miracles of portable technologies. (I hear if you want to get onto the AT&T network, certification (RTTE) costs $60k with an almost guarunteed first time fail.)

Think, in a modern device you have Bluetooth (2.4GHz), WiFI (2.4GHz,5GHz), LTE(800 to 1900), GNSS(1.6GHz), NFC(13.56MHz) all in this tiny package.

And they have SAR limits, radiation limits in all axes, are held in people hands or not changing their charactestic impeadance, and have a great clutter of metal around them!

The blue Ring Pops work best. I'm surprised you don't know what the Ring Pops are for! You don't get around much, do you?

Ring pops?  Really?  What is the "real" reason for wearing one?

I have to say, though, that this is a lot to put in such a small package.  Not really repairable, but very powerful.  I guess it is cheaper to just replace a unit rather than fix it.

Latest Analysis
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
Fifteen European research centers have launched EuroCPS to help European companies develop innovative products for the Internet of Things.
Get your Allman Brothers albums ready. The iconic Volkswagen Microbus may be poised for a comeback, and this time it could be electric.
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
