Overall: Order Date: July 19, 2014nReceive Date: July 21, 2014nCity: PunenOrder Price: 57,676nOffer: 10% Cash Back on HDFC Credit Card (Max 3000)nFinal Price: 54,676nnQuick Tip: Flipkart (as well as other sites) normally offers better discounts over Weekends, so hang around for a while & time your purchase perfectly, like I did.nnFlipkart Service: Awesome as ever. Quick, Precise, SafennProduct Contenders: Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (Tablet PC, Touch, No Standard Keyboard Dock included)nnReason for choosing MBA over Surface: Surface Pro 3 is a slightly different league but to my checklist, these 2 fit the bill perfectly. Yet I chose MBA coz:n1> Surface Pro 3 is not officially available in India & has very little chances to coming to Indian Shore. eBay has it in India but it's too expensive there. If you can get it directly from US through an acquaintance, nothing like itn2> Base version comes with Intel Core i3 (4th Gen). A downer compared to MBAn3> MBA Keyboard scores over Surfaces' since its BackLit. Surface Pro 3 Keyboard needs to be checked out personally to comment which I couldn't.nnProduct Review:nnThis is my First Apple Product & I'm a newbie to Apple Eco System. MBA was an item which has been on my wish list for a long time now & when it finally came at this price, resisting it became harder than ever since price was the only reason I stayed far away from it.nnClass, fit, finish is remarkable which is a universal & repetitive truth. So I end it here.nnMy experience with Mac OS X (Mavericks) is still in its nascent phase & I frequently google for tips & stuff I need but nothing that would be a deal breaker since it's not rocket science. Battery backup is phenomenal. I'll update my review on connectivity with Non Apple Products after a week.nnAccessories: I guess I'll be buying a Laptop Sleeve & a VGA Connector soon.
