Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Macbook Air Trade In Value

When it came out that Microsoft was offering up to $650 trade-in value for a Macbook Air to apply to the cost of a new Microsoft Surface Pro 3, I decided to take a look.

I had a 2011 2 GB MBA, and was concerned how much it would bring, but was happy to find I got around $550 for it, so I now have a mid-level i5, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD Surface Pro 3.

Just starting to play with it, I can see things I don’t like as much as with an MBA, but other things that I do like.  The biggest immediate issue is that the screen is very reflective, so I have to pay more attention to ambient lighting, but I think that is manageable.

Minor tip: when setting up the Pen, put the battery in the right way, it tends not to work as well if you don’t.
