Hi everybody!
I am going to buy a surface for high school/college. I can get the surface pro 3 i5 4gb for 960$ here in Denmark and the surface pro 4 i5 4gb for 1370$.

i am tilting towards the pro 3 as i don't know if the pro 4 is worth the extra 400$, and i'm a little low on money right now ^^. Is there any killer features i am missing by buying the 3 or should i go for it?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the answers, I have heard that the battery life and cooling is quite bad in the pro 3, but i will mostly be using it for notetaking, lightroom and other light programs, so i dont think that the pro 4 will be worth the extra money. One last option could be the intel m3 version of the pro 4 which costs roughly the same as the surface pro 3. Between these two, what would be the best bet? ^^

The core m3 is fanless, so it won't make as much noise if that is a concern. The core m3 and 4gb of ram may not be able to run lightroom ultra smooth, but for note taking it is perfect.
