The two best Surface Pro 3 features, and one big worry

Here's what I think are the two best Surface Pro 3 features:

My worry is heat.

The top-end Surface Pro 3 features a Core i7 processor, and even at the lower end Microsoft felt it necessary to not go with a fanless design and pop a fan into the Surface Pro 3. I worry that this tablet is going to run warm. OK, not warm, but hot. Too hot.

Consumers aren't used to a sizzling tablet belching out  fiery air from vents. Microsoft demoed Photoshop running on this, but I know how hot my Mac gets running that app, and that's certainly too hot to hold comfortably.

I hope Microsoft has got the thermals worked out on this.
