I got a Surface Pro 3 a few years ago and although it had its faults I have since upgraded through a Surface Pro 4 to my current Surface Pro 2017. It's doing pretty well, has an excellent battery life and best of all I can use a stylus on it for my digital art. Note though the Microsoft surface pen is pants, do not buy it!!!
For instructions on how I install my Surface Pro from scratch see Surface Install
Here are some potentially useful Surface Pro files and scripts :
