Which Surface should you get?

Now that Microsoft has three Surface products, I have been getting questions about which one to buy. Here is my initial observations:

Surface Book is way heavier than Surface Pro 4. Almost twice as heavy. But the screen is larger, and when you take it off as a clipboard, it's also lighter than Surface Pro 4. And it's thinner, thinner than Surface 3 even, because it does not have to house USB ports. I's very comfortable to hold.

I am really happy with Surface 3, even without the LTE option. Surface Pro 4 is very tempting, if only for the keyboard, which also fits Surface Pro 3, but not Surface 3, simply because it is too large. Surface Book is too big a challenge for my Macs. Don't want to leave that comfort zone. ;-) Surface Book is actually the only Surface that could replace my MacBook Pro, since it spends a lot of time on my lap while I kick up my legs. Neither Surface nor Surface Pro are usable in this position.

Danke, Volker! Hätte ich nicht ohnehin einen Glas-Überfluss, würde ein Surface 3 sehr, sehr gut aussehen ;)

Kein LTE für das Surface Book, das ist sehr schade. Dann warte ich ich weiter auf Preise und die Verfügbarkeit des Thinkpad Yoga 260/460.
