I run sketchup on my surface pro 1 and even the lowest spec surface pro 3 is more powerful but if it was me I would fully load it. All or nothing is the only way to go lol

Yep, load that puppy up. You can't upgrade after the fact. 128 gig seems like a lot, but it isn't. You want all the storage you can get.

Besides, pay now or pay later when you upgrade to a new tablet sooner if the specs aren't top end.

I run Cad and Revit just fine. Ofcourse due to screen and dual core vs my quad core desktop its just a slower pace. But not at all annoying. OneNote and the pen feature are just perfect. For my grad courses, constr. meetings, and everything. My only issue is with Mathcad not compatible with Windows 8 but thats not the SP3's fault.

A 64gb sd card is pretty cheap nowadays.

I would still go with the top of the line if I could justify purchasing one. Although the lesser specs are probably more than sufficient.
