I think Surface Pro 3 offers lot more value than an Apple iPad Pro. Even though iPad Pro has large display and powerful processor, it still runs on mobile OS. Also for $799, it does not come with Apple Pencil. You have to spend another $99 for the key accessory which is the reason you will be probably buying iPad Pro.
