Yes. I'm still using my Gen1 regularly and the Gen3 is much, much better. A colleague of mine just upgraded his Gen1 to Gen3 and he's happy as a clam.

Are they comfortable to use on a lap? I imagine with the top heavy screen, wobbly leg and no rigid connection from the keyboard, they'd be a bit of a handful.

It took me a couple of days to get used to it, but the keyboard is fairly rigid and the stand is really good, so no issues from me. Really nice to work on and the 3:2 aspect ratio is so good.

Best Windows tablet I've ever used.

Mine came in last week and my wife loved it so much I gave it to her. She said the stand isn't uncomfortable on the legs at all.

It takes a bit to get used to, but you have 3 settings for the keyboard and the stand does extend a lot. So I'd like to hear a comparison to the Surface, which is pretty much the only competitor to this combo.
