Looking to buy a Surface Pro to run Lightroom and Photoshop, i have been offer a S3 which has a i7 processor and a S4 with a i5, both are 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD and come with keyboard and stylus so was wondering which would be my best option, i also believe that the keyboard and pen on the S3 are not as good as the S4.

Any input would be gratefully received :smashin:

I'd say newer is better. I had the i5 version of the SP3 and the fan came on a lot. The i7 would probably run very hot.

I'd go for the i5 SP4.

Went on the same principle and plummeted for the i5 SP4 just waiting for delivery now :)

I have a SP3 i7 and it does indeed run very hot. It has shutdown on a couple of occasions during normal usage, Not good!
