Ultrabook Replacement for Surface Pro 3


I plan to replace my Surface Pro 3, which I use for school work, windows-specific tasks, Photoshop, Lightroom, and media consumption, with a new ultrabook. Unfortunately, my Surface is running quite slow as of late and the hardware has been less-than desirable the more I use it. 


My budget is $2500 Canadian, I would prefer a computer that is 3 pounds or less, and the screen size can be between 13 inches and 14 inches as I plan to use it as my ultraportable workstation/productivity machine.


So far, I am considering the Dell XPS 13 and Surface Laptop 2. 


Thank you in advance,

Well the Pro 6 with 512GB of storage, 16GB of RAM, and i7 runs about 2,250 CAD. If I wasn't already about to build a PC, I'd literally be buying one myself. If the 512GB of storage isn't enough you could easily snag an external SSD as well, and stay within your budget. Also if you're a student, MS does student discounts as well.

You don't have to spend that much actually


Prefer min how many hours of battery life? Mind low sRGB display and non-upgradable RAM? Any other requirements?
