    Best Music Player

    I agree that Foobar2000 and J Rivers are the best music players for Windows 8.1 but to get the most out of it on the surface pro 3 you MUST use an external dac that has an ASIO driver.

    Wireless screen sharing between PCs

    As of the last update, the surface pro 3 has a built-in API to act as a miracast receiver though I know of no programs that have been created to date to take advantage of it.

    For the stylus use alone, you should buy the pro. You can find it used for pretty cheap now
