Had a Surface Pro 3, loves it for the first 6 months, then it shit the bed. Search around; it’s notoriously hot garbage. If you can get the tools you need on macOS I’d go there. But there are also other OEMs making decent 2-in-1s if you prefer or need windows.

I use a MBP, and love it. Only catch is that Excel for Mac is abysmal if you’re working with large data sets
